We bought this tank at Petsmart for about $23. Cheap. But it brought so much heartache to our family. I wish I had read all the reviews, maybe with modifications I could have saved my daughter's Black Molly. The 2 guppies that we first got were killed by the filter within 48 hours. Their beautiful tail got caught in by the filter. Molly (the black Molly) was smarter and quickly figured out that one should not get close to the front if the filter. But 12 days later she died of stress. I could not understand why as we kept water at perfect conditions, water changes every 2 days, a little salt, heater to keep temp constant, etc. I mean, I put a LOT of work in keeping that fish alive because I did not want to break my child's heart after the guppy fiasco. Well, after reading the review about the constant whirlpool, it ALL makes sense! This poor fish would hide inside this castle decor or hover right at the top of the water at the side of the filter, avoiding at all costs the larger front area of the tank. I thought she was skiddish. Now I see she was trying to survive the whirlpool. But I guess eventually she succumbed to exhaustion and stress. We found her dead this morning.

We will try the sock, sponge & change position of the filter for the new Molly, Cole. We can't put anything bigger in her bedroom. But I extremely regret having gone for this kit. :(

Ridiculously small for goldfish. People need to seriously do research on goldfish before obtaining one (or worse, multiple ones). They are not throwaway pets that live for a week or two. With ADEQUATE space, filtration, and aeration (which this kit provides NONE of), goldfish can live 30+ years and grow to lengths of at LEAST 12 inches. If you can't handle that, then don't get them. Simple.

My boyfriend won a goldfish for me at the county fair. Since I haven't had a fish in years, we bought this tank to get him out of the small bowl he was in. On the surface, the tank appears to be of good quality for the price. The lid functions well and the design is pleasing. The kit does, indeed, include a good amount of supplies to start an aquarium.
However, the problems arose when I turned on the filter. The filter is specified for tanks up to 6 gallons. The current the filter created in a 1.77 gallon tank was much too strong for any fish. My poor fish was exhausted by the current, and eventually got sucked against the filter and stuck there. After the incident, I did a quick google search and found that many other people had the same issues. The only way you should buy this tank is if you plan on purchasing an additional filter elsewhere. If so, I recommend the Tetra whisper 3i for a tank this size.

Hagen's website shows product warning and recall for units manufactured during certain dates. The air filter included with my aquarium is one of them. It's too powerful to run fulltime. My fish are swimming frantically in the turbulence. Two became trapped against grill overnight. In morning,found them dead.

My wife purchased this aquarium, and it didn't take long to see that it was a death trap if you intend to have anything but one one or two larger fish (smaller fish will struggle with the current created by the large filter).

Some people here are shutting the filter off at night, but doing that will kill your fish unless you are doing very frequent water changes to make up for it. Defeats the purpose of the filter and your aquarium won't cycle right anyway.

I made some alterations to help make the aquarium a short term solution until we were ready to upgrade (we purchased a petco bookshelf aquarium which is far superior for not much more money).

First off, I would NOT recommend placing the filter in the center of the tank, as the manufacturer recommends. This pretty much makes the entire tank a whirlpool, which will kill smaller fish like neon tetras and guppies who are not full grown. Instead, place the filter over on the far side of the tank so your fish can get away from the suction current and rest. High stress environments usually mean a shorter life for your fish.

Moving the filter to the side of the tank will create a problem. You won't be able to close the lid properly. To solve this, I drilled a hole into the lid's side trim and widened the hole with a pair of needle nose pliers. You need to practice putting the filter into place first so you can estimate where to notch out the hole. This will allow the filter hang bracket to function normally while allowing you to shut the lid completely. Run the filter's power cord through the space just to the left or right of the hood hinges.

You can also place a clean toddler's sock over the bottom of the filter to help mitigate the suction power of the filter.

Hello!

I purchased this tank from PetSmart, and then came home to see if I got a good price on it vs. Amazon...then I see the reviews and was immediately terrified. I do not have a gold fish, I have a 4 month old Betta Fish, that was my son's 2-year birthday present. (Her name is Blub-Blub). We wanted to get a bigger tank for Blub' and even though she is a betta, I really liked the tank and the fact it came with the rocks and decor and that it was 2.65 gallons (We have the marina cool 10).

I wanted to return it, but I also really wanted a better home for Blub', we still had her 1 gallon starter WITH NO FILTRATION for her, which was killing me. So, we upgraded, and thanks to the other owners, her life is saved, as we took some preventative measures and watched her very closely for hours to make sure she was safe. We took a clean sock and pulled it up over the intake to help buffer filter pulling. This seems to have worked, and she has been happy and safe in there for over a week. Don't get me wrong, when I am sleeping, I still turn off the filter just in case...we love our fish and want to keep her a long time. She seems happy and healthy, and loves her tank. But without the buffer, things may have been different.
