It is a very small tank, so do not expect to house a goldfish or beta humanely in this.(as the above ranter mentioned goldfish need way more space and are really dirty fish so need a powerful filter) Their is no actual filtration on this tank when it arrives , so my water began to get a bit cloudy after a week. I added a bit of activated charcoal and a biosponge underneath the plastic grate that holds the gravel off of the pump so that the water has to be pulled through that before it is pumped back to the top and my water has been crystal clear since. I also cut a small square of black plastic mesh to make a little lid for this so my critters could not escape, and to keep my cats from drinking the water.
Good size for small office desk
Clock is a nice touch and bonus
Pen holder make this functional as well. Very nice touch
Good for small fish. I have two neons in mine. They are very small.
Battery install is on the bottom of the tank. If the batteries die you will need to disturb the tank and fish to get to them
USB should have powered the entire device. It would have been nice to have the USB power the clock, lights, etc rather than batteries at all. If it must have batteries, a tray install on the bottom right hand or rear right hand side would make it accessible once it has occupants.
Faucet filter: While I listed this as a pro, the con is that the flow rate is not adjustable and it does disturb the water heavily especially considering the size of the fish you can have in it.
The sounds option is pretty useless considering the quality.
User should be diligent and willing to manually cycle a small percent of the water every 4 to 5 days in my opinion.
Do not leave the faucet filter on full time for certain fish (Bettas for example)
Put the batteries in first (Yes, I made that mistake)
Just in case the 40oz of water was too small to sustain fish life, I started out with a feeder fish. George (fish's name) has been in there for over a week and is still going strong. A little back story: George was born in a crowded aquarium somewhere in the midwest (just guessing) to very distraught and stressed parents. George left the nest to call an aquarium at Petsmart his home at an early age. George never thought he would amount to much in life other than being eaten by an Oscar or cichlid of some sort (and I bought him for the very purpose.) But one lucky Christmas of 2014 George was chosen for the experiment of a lifetime. The "can a fish actually live in a 40oz aquarium experiment." George is now king of his own domain. George used to eat whatever plant debris he could digest from my planted aquarium at home. Now he dines on breakfast burritos and cookies like a boss (although he's not a cheesecake fan.) George is too good for fish food and would rather dine on whatever I'm eating that day. George has become a straight up pimp in this new office tank. Daily the lady folk come over to watch him sing and dance in his aquatic wonderland. George couldn't be happier in his new abode, even though it wasn't his original calling in life (in another fish's belly.) By buying this aquarium, you too could change a fish's life forever!Read more ›
Bottom line: I love it! (don't use goldfish dummy)
The USB cord is ridiculously short. I needed an extension usb cable.
This is a neat little tank, however. It is good for one small fish, like a guppy, tetra, or glofish. It is NOT good for a goldfish or a better. It is too small, plus goldfish are really dirty fish, especially for a tank without good filtration.

GREAT for Marimo. HORRIBLE for fish. There is no fish that can happily thrive in this. Do not put fish in this. It's cruel.Get a Marimo moss ball instead.Published 5 months ago by Ellen Charles
