Got this primarily because you can get water out of tank via the adjustable spout. I use fish water to water my plants and like the easy accessibility. Pretty satisfied with the results so far. I also wanted plastic so the tank wasn't too heavy when filled.
Aquarium works so far no issues just it did not come with the switch for the light or container for cleaning the instructions list the items but it was not included in the set unfortunately will have to go out and try to find a clip on light since I cannot use my hood light without the switch
Weve had this aquarium about eight weeks. In the middle of the night last night, we were awakened by the most alarming screeching noise. The pump was broken and not pulling water, but it sounded like a dying cat. Weve taken the whole thing apart and cleaned it again and it isnt pumping any water at all. My aquarium is kept super clean, so I dont understand. Very frustrating.
My 3yr old asked Santa for a fishy tank for Christmas. I settled on this one. The pump died within a month.
Had an issue with the pump not working. I mentioned it in a review and I had an entire new tank on my doorstep two days later, which works perfectly. Happy to deal with a company with great customer service and prompt response.
I have had the 1 gallon MiniBow before and I decided I'd like a bigger tank so I purchased the 5 gallon and I love it! It isn't too big and isn't too small! It isn't really suitable for a desktop if you wanted to use it in an office unless you have a big desk (for that I would recommend the MiniBow 1 gallon), but it's great for the house, and the filter/water changing feature is amazingly easy!
I bought the 2.5 gallon tank, to make sure it fits on my counter. Fit in the space perfectly. I set it up and cycled it first of course. I like this tank. Easy set-up, and will be easy to clean. I wish I had a space to buy a bigger one of these.
Was given a Betta as a gift. Started reading and learning more about their likes and needs. This tank seems to be perfect, looks good, easy to clean and my fish appears to be very happy (active too) in his new home!
This is a really nice tank and it was easy to set up. Comes with the filter and this particular bundle includes beautiful sage green Seaglass. The lid has a light. The tank itself has a profile that sits with a slight overlapping of the black base, so it has some interesting architectural feature to it too! lol The lid also has a hole for feeding and my automatic feeder I bought for the weekends when I’m not at work fits right on and over the hole. I love it. Excellent value! Oh my goodness, I almost forgot the most excellent part!!!– the filter has an arm that pulls up and turns off the flow then swivels to extend out over the back of a tank, then you push it down and the water starts to flow again so you can easily change out the water! So convenient!!! Again—I love it!!
This is probably a fine little aquarium. However, after I got it, I saw it advertised from a competitor at $10 less. I guess I foolishly believed Chewy was the place to get deals. The second issue was shipping. I’m amazed this small plastic tank survived shipping, since it was packed with heavy canned pet food. The gravel I ordered was torn open during shipping. I really feel Chewy can do better.
