Just look at the advertised picture of this table...beautiful, but once you get it home and set it up, far less enchanting! The glass top is super heavy,the space between the top of the tank and the glass top is too wide (I lost a few fish that escaped this way). I ended up having to modify the table by purchasing an acrylic top, drilling holes on the four corners to lower decrease the gap. Also, there is a condensation problem if you don't have the tank temp. almost excatly the same as the room temp. I definitely believe this is a big time waste of money and do not recommend this to anyone.

If you are looking for a good tank, try the Nanocube, or one of the marineland eclipse tanks. They are good, reliable, easy to use.

I have had many aquariums in my 62+yrs and although this one is a challenge it is no where near the bad buy some have reviewed it as. Trouble feeding? Why? Are your fingers fatter than 2" (oops maybe they are).Heavy top? Yeah it's in the middle of the floor and it's nice if it gets bumped and the "heavy" top doesn't fly off or break. Prob w/cords.....huh? I'm no Einstien but where's the prob?

The ONLY prob I have is the supplied filter is NOT adequate. I extensively researched filters and found the easiest and by far least expensive solution is to simply order a 2nd matching Power 85 directly from Midweast Tropical. I fits nicely next to the other and you can use your OWN charcoal and filter floss (FOUND FOR PENNIES PER USE ON THE NET) which nearly all other filters will not allow. They all take expensive proprietary mgfs cartridge/bag etc filter inserts and you can do your own for 85-90% cheaper! ALSO this way you can put STANDARD ACTIVATED CHARCOAL in one filter and AMMOINIA ABSORBER in the other and BULK floss in both and have twice the filter media at work.

Simple, cheap and VERY EFECTIVE....PROBLEM SOLVED!

I'd buy it again in a heart beat. Had it for 8 months now and my fish and my wife and I LOVE it. Everyone that comes in the front door goes nuts over it.

ANYONE WISHING TO CONTACT ME, FEEL FREE. Sorry if I offended anyone but there's nothing at all
wrong with this tank and setup.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME IF INTERESTED IN TANK OR TROUBLE SHOOTING.

I have had my fish tank table for over 20 years. It was wonderful back then and still is in 2013. Everyone who visits me wants one. I give hints but truthfully want to be the only one who has it since it's so unique. This tank is wonderful even though a few small fish have jumped out and the cord is so visible. You can always buy a piece of rug to put over it and tape the cord down to it or find another way to hide it, it's not bad. Also the open space is good for putting the food in. People who complain, sound like cronic complainers and can never be satisfied.

I've had alot of aquiraums this one was more of a think out of the box.
We bought a pump that mounts inside the tank. We bought an air tank that would fit under the tank. My husband went to Menards and bought the covers that cover up eletrical wires on the walls. He painted them and feed all the wires through that, so we only have one thing going across to the outlet. I feel the guest will be watching the fish that they won't even notice that on the floor. If your interested in pictures or what we used feel free to contact me. I think my husband did an great job to hide every thing.

I would buy again. :)))

Verified Purchase
Tank is awesome. The other review's are just misleading. When you buy a fish tank you have to put in some work and clean it. The top isn't very heavy, my wife has cleaned it bye herself with no problem.

This is an impressively beautiful tank, the perfect centerpeice for our living room. I recommend you install a floor-mount duplex receptacle as I did to eliminate having any visible power cords (the outlet is hidden beneath the tank - one is always-on power for the pump, the other is for the light which I wired to a wall switch so you can turn the light on and off). Someone complained the top is too heavy, but it is not - very easy to remove by yourself, or slide a bit for feeding/maintenance. The weight is just right. I do see a little condensation on the underside of the glass top where the air bubbles surface, but it's not significant and not a problem - it doesn't hurt anything. Another reviewer complained about fish being able to jump out the openings on the sides: I haven't experienced this, maybe with certain types of fish it might be a problem (exacerbated perhaps by too high a water level?) - but if I did have this problem I would simply make some wire-mesh cutouts in the proper shape and fashion some clips to hold them in place. In short, don't be dissuaded by the other reviewers - buy this tank and you will likely be very pleased, as we are.

I bought this tank from Petco. I love it. I had another one before and it was ridiculous. This one is awesome.
It has beautiful shape which complements the length of your couch as a coffee table. it has 28 gal capacity nice for fish. People complaint about the glass top but hey its a coffee table. stronger glass is of course better. you will put all kinds of stuff on it too... It is perfect weight to be able to pick by one person (girl/guy) and is crystal clear. Condensation will be a problem with every coffee table aquarium... only way to optimize it is to keep the water level 6-7 inches below the top glass.. reason is pump filters water and add bubbles and the bubbles escape towards the top glass....
but that is with every aquarium...

Also, fish cannot escape from this tank. That is wrong. Only certain type of fish will like eels. You should shop accordingly.

Blue gravel is awesome. This table will astonish your guests and everyone will love it. Have fun. I love mine.

This is an ok table, but there are better products on the market if you are willing to spent a bit more. Personally I think it would be worth it. I bought this from Petco for about $400, which was a decent price, but again I wish I would have splurged on a better model.

Pros:
- Came packaged very well
- Unobstructed views, can see fish from all sides and angles.
- Comes with blue rocky gravel (a little tacky), filter and fake plants.
- A great conversation piece.
- A long tank so (suitable) fish have plenty of swimming room.

Cons:
- We added another filter and there was no notch cut for it so now the table wobbles.
- Glass top is not secure, easy to slide it by bumping the table.
- It is impossible to hide filter and heater wires. My original plan was to place this on an area rug and cut holes to run the wires to an outlet, but you can still clearly see the wires running from the top of the tank into the carpet. I wish there was some kind of built in feature to hide this.

The aquarium is awesome! It's absolutely beautiful! You will be extremely satisfied with this purchase! I've gotten nothing but, compliments from my guest when they see it. So glad I didn't make my decision based on the negative reviews. ..I would've missed out!
