Customer Reviews

This tank is perfect for keeping a betta fish.
It would be nice if I could have the tank without the filter and put my own filter on it, but unfortunately since the filter is hard wired the latter can't happen.

The tank looks very pretty and the filter is very quiet.

I bought this tank at PetSmart about a week ago, and so far I'm impressed. The kit includes the Whisper 3i in-tank filter, a couple of bio filter replacement cartridges, tubing, pump, LED light, and two plastic plants that can be attached on a grid like system that runs along the bottom of the tank (there are 8 possible positions). It doesn't come with water treatment, gravel, or food, but it does have a convenient storage shelf that pulls out from the bottom for these items.

Before this tank, I had my Betta in a small Marina cube, which only held a half Liter of water. Two weeks later, I decided to upgrade to this kit. After a day of adjustment, my fish really began to enjoy his new home and has since built a bubble nest. The LED can swivel from side to side and adjust up or down, so I like to angle it towards the filter in the back corner. This allows enough light to illuminate the tank nicely, but avoids exposing my Betta to direct bright light when I have it on. The light itself it great. Using LEDs means very little electricity usage, as well as almost no heat output. The switch is located on the side, so it's easily turned on and off. My only complaint is that the light tends to slide down to a certain point when you raise it all the way up. Not a big deal, but something to note.

The filter has kept the water nice and clear so far. It's easily attached anywhere on the tank via two suction cups on the back end. The top lid of the tank has two small holes on either side for the hose, as well as a large hole for easy grabbing. The two holes are great if you'd like to add a small water heater along with your filter. The Whisper 3i does create a fairly noticeable current in a tank this small, something my Betta did not enjoy at first as they prefer still water.

This tank is perfect for keeping a betta fish. It's roomy enough to decorate nicely so your fish is comfortable and has stuff to do. I was hesitant, as I've only had larger tanks before and worried that this would be too small, but it's just right for my betta fish.

I was worried that the filter might be too strong, based on some reviews here, but my betta has done absolutely fine with the filter on, and the filter does an amazing job at keeping the water clear. I'm able to do a full water change once a month, and the water is STILL crystal clear within that time frame. (But I wouldn't recommend going over a month without giving it a full cleaning, because the gravel traps old food and bacteria. Just an fyi for someone considering this as their first fish tank.)

I really love the LED light at the top of the tank, it looks beautiful at night. The storage space at the bottom is handy as well. I keep extra filter packs, de-chlorinator, and some emergency fish meds in there, just in case.

I'd definitely recommend this to someone looking into getting a betta fish. Many people want these intelligent fish as decorations, which I discourage because they tend to keep the poor things in tiny half gallon bowls. This tank is the right size for a betta to live happily and is visually stunning for the owner as well. It's a win/win!

The filter did a good job of clearing the water while it was working. However, after a couple of weeks the output of water from the pump shrunk to almost nothing (you can see a little waterfall at the top of the filter cartridge unit while the pump is working. I managed to revive it by blowing some compressed air through it and resubmerging it in water and starting it up again. The filter worked for a few days then shut down again. Each time I got it working again, but each time it pumped less and less and lasted a shorter and shorter length of time until it stopped. A month later it is completely dead. The water was not unusually dirty or filled with debris.

Note that the filter is hardwired into the tank. You can't remove or replace it. In fact, in trying to clean it you have to do it right above the tank, since the cord is short. You cannot turn the filter off without disabling the LED lights, probably a good feature if the filter is working, but it might be a fire hazard if the filter breaks as mine did and you just leave the power connected to get the LED lighting while the jammed or burned out filter is straining and overheating.

There must have been other versions of this tank, since in the current 2013 version there is no drawer, no "plants," no gravel, no nothing except the plastic tank and the integrated light and filter/pump unit. Keep this in mind when reading reviews here from others who bought the tank pre-2013. Also, note that many people here reviewed the product before using it for any length of time. I'm wondering why these old reviews are even left up here. Tetra is supposed the change the product's UPC code when they substantially change the product. This is a different product than many here have reviewed.

I've had this aquarium for about a week and a half, and my betta seems to like it. He builds bubble nests and is very active. I never knew bettas to zip around a tank, which goes to show how much better off they are with some space than in the little prison cells that are among the betta homes pet stores sell. I am only using this 1.5 gallon aquarium because of space limitations, and would recommend a larger one if you have space so your fish will be happier. So far the filter is keeping the water clear, and makes a soft current, which is good since bettas are bothered by strong currents. Time will tell how the filter lasts. I'm hoping it lasts for a while since it seems hard to find filters with a soft enough current to suit bettas (I heard the Azoo Mignon is a good one). The lid has an opening for the top of the filter, and smaller openings on either side, so a micro-heater and cord can be easily accomodated while the lid still fits well. Condensation does build up on the lid, but there seems to be less of it now than there was the first few days. The light can be adjusted up and down, and the LED is nice and bright, making the aquarium pleasing to look at. There is an on/off switch for the light, but the light's power is controlled by the same plug as the filter. So if you want to turn off the filter, you have to un-plug it which turns off the light as well. Therefore if you want to feed your fish and not have the food get carried around by the filter current, he has to eat in the dark. Overall this is an excellent small aquarium for the money. I'm looking at the Aqueon Evolve 2 Gallon for my other betta, which has a wall that conceals the filter, and any heater and cords, and of course gives the fish a little more space.Read more ›
