Amazing tank, nice filter & good lighting

I got this tank about a month ago. Everything works great, except the lid does not fit on the tank well, which is why I give it four stars. I cannot use the filter because the current is too strong for my betta, but it has a decent enough filter. I really love the light, although I have difficulty taking it off/putting it back on. Great five gallon tank if you don't mind the shape, but not so much for bettas unless you change or remove the filter.
I would recommend this to a friend!

very loud

The filter motor generates a lot of vibration and is so loud that you can hear it in a room above. It's that low humming noise that penetrates walls. Other than that it's a great tank.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Wouldn't buy again

The lid doesn't fit well, and usually you just have to find the best place to rest it. It will sometimes fall into the tank. Also, because of the curved front, it makes the filter, which hangs outside the back of the tank, look HUGE. The light fixture is stationary. I have similar tanks where you can raise and lower the light fixture. Because you can't raise this one, it's awkward when you do your regularly scheduled water changes.
Other than that, it looks nice, no leaks... but yeah, won't buy another one.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

my betta fish loves this aquarium. the filter is very quiet and it was very easy to set up. i love how there is a space on the cover of the tank to allow for a power cord for a heater if you have one. My fish seems very happy so far with this product.

AWESOMENESS

This was the absolute best kit I could have gotten! Had all I needed for starting a tank and for a great price too! Only thing is that the tank it came with got a crack down the middle of it in only the first water change. Still good though.
I would recommend this to a friend!
