Receiving the tank I filled it with water, poured in the additives, and let it circulate for 24 hours and stabilize to room temperature. Then in went my fish. Be careful putting in a fish, do not just drop him in. He seems happy and living life as a happy fish. Every time I walk buy his tank or sit in my living room he always watches me and follows me. My bettas usually stays at the top of tank, they are top swimmers. I purchases live plants that grow and reach the top of the tank, he likes to lay in the leaves at the top of the tank, I have read it is normal for them to do that.
If you are setting up a tank, these are the things I have noticed for my fish and aquarium.
DO NOT buy gravel from wallmart. Even after rinsing the gravel, some of the gravel will float and my betta will try to eat it.
DO NOT buy the floating log top, it peels after about month, which cannot be good for your tank or betta.
DO set your your water pump to lowest possible setting, Bettas are not strong swimmers and like calm water.Read more ›
Update: It has been a over a year and still no issues with leaks, or the pump. The only very minor annoyance is that sometimes the lid to the filter changer vibrates. But it is easy to solve. Other than that no complaints about this tank. It is also very nice that the replacement filters are relatively cheap on amazon.
-This unit has a nice foot print. It doesn't take up a ridiculous amount of counterspace.
-The filter is very impressive compared to other tanks I've seen. The flow is adjustable, from very gentle to rather aggressive.
-The filter is also rather quiet. Unlike my other tank, this one doesn't need an overly aggressive airrated to vibrate and make all kinds of noise.
-The lid and glass both seem to be of high quality. The opening section of the lid is sturdy and there are no scratches or bubbles in the glass.
-I'm not a huge fan of the light. This one comes with incandescent lighting, but I prefer my last tank's LED.
-The filter is a universal model. It has the ability to attach to far larger tanks, so it sits on there kind of awkwardly. I used a small piece of cardboard folded over (the box the bulb came in) on the outside of the tank to make it a little bit more stable. I don't see it at all and it works better than the space included.
Overall this is a great tank for a small room, like a dorm or kids room. If you have the space I would recommend something bigger, but for the right task this is a perfect kit.
The tank was also packaged well for shipping, resulting in a whole tank with no leaks or cracks. Everthing was included as illustrated in the advertised picture and everything also fit in place as obviously built to do. I had no problems putting it together and filling it with water. The instruction manual for the water pump was easy to follow and the bottles of liquids were also easy to apply as per instructions under the label. I also find the little tank care booklet to be very useful especially for beginners like me.
With my son all grown up and moved out I needed something else to do with myself and time, so I figured I can take care of some fishies since I'm no longer needed as a 24hr mom. I'm so excited! I think I can see the bacteria growing....lol. I also learned alot on YouTube and also learned what I did wrong when I was younger....Knowledge can keep things alive...
Thanks again. TE Atl, GA
