-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.Read more ›
- 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.
- 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..
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 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.

I love this little tank as a shrimp tank. Only thing I don't love is the light and filter is on the same outlet plug. So you can't put the light on a timer. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Tibbi
