I decided to buy this after I saw the price and several good reviews.I have had this aquarium for a few weeks, now I can personally say my Betta has never been happier in his new home. He swims around more, instead of sitting on the leaf of one of the plants in it, like he did in his old 1 gallon bowl. I personally like the sleekness of the design. It looks great in my room. It having a single cord to power both the light and the filter is a great feature. The Instructions are in English and Spanish and very easy to read with detailed pictures. The only two replacement parts for it are the Glass bowl and the power cord. The filter is, I believe, the Tetra Whisper 3i filter. The only difference I see is that it is powered by a very quiet impeller that attaches to the bottom of the filter instead of an annoying air pump. The filter cartridges (Use the Tetra 3i filter cartridges) are suppose to last about a month each and it comes with one filter cartridge. The Waterfall is also relaxing, oxygenates the water and removes chlorine and the fishy smell. The waterfall looks just as it does in the picture, by the way. I thought it would be more of a drizzle, but I was wrong. I'll list everything out for you:

CONS:
-Glass bowl had some imperfections- slightly warped (But not very noticeable) lip and 2 weird air bubble-looking things I found. At first I thought it was an air bubble inside that just stuck to the side of the bowl, but it actually was just imperfections in the glass. At least the glass bowl is replaceable.
- The flat bottom of the glass bowl is only about 4-5 inches in diameter- makes it harder to put some types of plants or ornaments in. you could put in more gravel, but you'll have to keep ornaments and plants toward the center- no big deal, really.

I bought this for my son's Betta and then saw a million reviews that said this tank was horrible for a Betta. I was really worried about the waterfall being too much for him. I found a solution for that though and I'll share it!

Anyway..

Pros:
- Very easy to clean. I didn't want a tank that I couldn't clean by myself. This one is the perfect size for our fish.
- Waterfall filtration works well so the tank stays clean longer.
- This tank is attractive. I made a little spot for it in the kitchen and it looks awesome.
- Waterfall is very quiet.

Cons:
- Glass seems a bit thin and that worries me because I tend to be a bit clumsy..
- I would like to be able to turn off the waterfall without unplugging the unit. Instead, I unplug it during feeding time and then plug it back in when the fish is done eating. The waterfall pulls the food to the bottom of the tank if I don't.

Overall, great tank. Too much current for a Betta for sure but I bought a Betta log (from Amazon also) and it floats right under the waterfall and keeps the water movement minimal. He can rest anywhere in tank and play around in the waterfall when he feels like it. He actually really loves the Betta log as well..

I was a little leery of this fish bowl at first, after all, neatly designed things such as this usually end up being junk. However, I was very surprised when it arrived and I got it all set up. It is well made and seems to be good quality. I like the one electrical plug design, which was a selling feature for me. The filter and the LED lighting both work off of the same plug. The base is sturdy and has built in hand grips for easy moving. The filter housing and assembly snap off easily and go back on easily for cleanings, however, the carbon filter pad makes cleanings far less frequent. It also has the option to add a heater in it, for those looking to put tropical fish in it.

Overall the design and functionality is really good. I'm very happy with my purchase and my betta seems to be very happy in his new home. The only thing I will mention is that the glass bowl is thin, so cleaning it requires some extra attention and handling. However, overall, you will be very happy with this item.

I love love LOVE this aquarium! It is gorgeous and has more than enough space for my new betta. I'm definitely not an aquarium expert and I had no trouble setting this up (even though the directions are a tiny bit vague). It worked perfectly the first time.

I keep it in my office and I have gotten several compliments on how beautiful it is. I work at a school and the kids just love it! I keep the LED light on while I'm in office and turn it off while I'm gone. I guess the only con is that my fish did seem a bit afraid of the current created by the waterfall... he seemed as if he had difficulty swimming downwards and it made his floating pellets shoot to the bottom of the tank and back up again if they happened to get caught in it. However, based on others' suggestions, I filled the tank close to the top (to reduce the strength of the waterfall) and put in a betta log and now he seems happier than ever. He can comfortably rest at the bottom or near the surface.

I have two packages of rocks in it, two plants, a little barrel house, and the log, and there still seems to be plenty of space. (FYI, it's 1.8 gallons.. for some reason I couldn't find that within the information on Amazon.) I can almost always see my fish and he has plenty of room to exercise. I don't hear the filter at all.

Overall, I'm incredibly satisfied with this little tank. Thanks to all the other customers for their detailed reviews! I posted a picture for reference as well.
