Questions & Answers

54 Customer Questions

I'm interested in purchasing this, but is the filter suitable for a betta? I heard that bettas need low filtration that's not that powerful, and I was wondering if the filter provided would be okay?
Answer by ChewyMay 31, 2019
The filter has a higher flow rate to ensures a higher dissolved oxygen content for healthier, more active fish. The filter might be too powerful for betta fish.

Does the filter system come with a pump and tubing? If not, what size do I need? Thank you.
Answer by ChewyJan 14, 2020
This starter kit includes: Low profile LED full hood, QuietFlow 10 LED PRO power filter with medium cartridge, 50W preset heater, premium fish food, water conditioner, fishnet and a stick-on thermometer.

Would this be a good size for 2 baby turtles???
Answer by ChewyMay 01, 2019
A 30-gallon tank is the suggested size for smaller species measuring between 4 and 6 inches. For turtles between 6 and 8 inches, a 55 gallon tank is appropriate. And for turtles measuring more than 8 inches, tanks in the 75 to 125 gallon range are a better choice. If you start with a younger, smaller turtle, a smaller tank is acceptable as long as the enclosure size increases as your turtle grows.

what temperature does the heater heat to?
Answer by ChewyMar 21, 2019
The 50 watt heater included in this kit is preset to 78 degrees Fahrenheit and is accurate within 1 degree.

Great Tank

This tank has been great so far! It arrived quickly & was easy to set up. I love that it tells me when the filters need changed. The automatic heater is a great plus! Upon filling the tank with cold water, it only took about 2 hours to heat to temperature, and has stayed at that temperature - no fluctuations. The thermometer sticker for the outside of the tank is a favorite of mine as well, I love that I don’t have to put a thermometer inside the tank. This is a great tank & serves its purpose very well however, the tank was “sloppily” made. The glue on every side/corners shows, and sticks out on the sides. As long as you don’t mind the excess glue on the corners, this is a great tank!! The water conditioner, net, trial size flakes & coupons for more Aqueon products are a great addition to this well priced tank!

Good Tank/Value

I bought this to give my fish a bigger place for them to swim in and enjoy. I find this tank to be made well, it looks great with the LED lights, and was easy to set up. The only complaint I have is that the water filter is a bit loud with a constant hum. If I was a fish this would drive me insane, but I'm not and they seem happy. I'm pleased with this purchase and would buy again if I ever need another tank.

Nice starter set

Good for someone who has either never had fish or is getting back into keeping fish after many years.

Was this an open box?

Looks like a reboxed item maybe someone's return perhaps?

What a great fish tank!!!

This fish tank comes with almost everything to start a beautiful freshwater fish tank! The tank comes with a very quiet, easy set-up filter, heater, tropical fish food, ( make sure to buy the right fish food for your fish if it is a coldwater fish :), a stick-on thermometer strip, a net, water conditioner, the tank and lid with a convenient feeding door and LED lighting. We are putting two fantail goldfish in it and are sure they will live long, happy lives. The only other thing we had to buy was cleaning supplies, bacteria supplement, goldfish food, and decor. So excited to put fish in this wonderful tank!

So far so good

You get the minimum needed to start with. The filter media you can get cheap, doesn't have to be the Aqueon cartridges. I use Aquaclear filter media (foam, bio-max, etc), they're cheap and work just as well.

Great beginner's tank

I bought this tank so I could take my boyfriend's dwarf gourami from a community tank where he was being a bully, it arrived on time and the heater constantly heats to 78°f. My only two complains are that I wish the lights had a low light setting, and like other reviewers, my tank does have some uneven silicone.

Nice aquarium.

I really like this aquarium. This is my first time fish keeping, and I enjoy it very much. But I did change the filter to an internal one. I believe the water became clearer within one day.

Great starter tank

I love this tank. It comes with everything you need to get started (except decorations and a water test kit.) I have used it as a community tank for small fish and now that they’ve moved to my 29 gallon I have a betta and a snail in it. The filter isn’t too strong for my betta as I added a lot of floating plants. The LED light is very nice also.
