Questions & Answers

is it glass? does it have a lid? is it good with bettas?
Answer by ChewyNov 09, 2017
This is a glass aquarium with a plastic lid.This tank is great for bettas and small freshwater community fish such as guppies, tetras, etc.

Is there a way to turn off the LED light without turning off the filter?
Answer by ChewyJan 24, 2019
While this lamp is designed to remain on at all times, the on/off lever is located on the rear of the filter cube. Moving the lever left to right will turn on or off the lights.

Are filters available for the Fluval Chi 5 gal aquarium?
Answer by ChewyOct 08, 2017
Fluval filter pads and filter medias are available for the Fluval Chi Aquarium. To keep the filter system running smoothly and to keep the fish or inhabitants healthy, please make sure to read the Safety Instructions and proper set-up and maintenance guides.

Could you add a heater to this?
Answer by ChewyNov 30, 2017
You can safely use the Fluval Submersible Glass Aquarium Heater, 50-watt.

Form follows function!

And this is all form and terrible function. The light is dim, and worse, it is submerged under water where it constantly causes algae growth that blocks the already dim light. The light is powered by the pump, so you can only manually turn it off; a timer would shut down the pump. And surprise! The "under the water" LED light quit working in less than a year and there is NO replacement for it - you have to buy an entire replacement filter cube which SURPRISE! costs more than buying a complete new aquarium.

I hate it!

I have had this tank for over a year now and I hate it! I would've been happier with a 15.00 boring tank. The filter is horrible and the light cannot be used without the filter. I bought new filtration unit because the one included grinds constantly and the water won't go through it most of the time so my poor fish rarely get light, which is not good for them. Would NOT recommend at all!

Fish loves it

I got a betta from coast gems usa, and i love him. The tank is a nice size for him (2.5 bear minimum but 5 gals is a better minimum) it gives me room for all the plants bettas need for a happy life. The filter is a tiny bit stong but bec2of how its disined it still gives him plenty of room to swim without being bothered by the water flow. The filter is completely silent except for the tinniest sound of flowing water witch helps me sleep at night, the light is a bit bright for a betta but nothing too bad the plants are doing great with the light and the betta gets shade from the plants. Wouldn't put much other then one betta and maybe a small group of neon tetras (5 or 6) and a small clean up crew (still do regular water changes). But i love this tank and i hope it keeps him happy for a long time. It comes with fluval cycle, and fluval Aqua plus, no gravel or anything so make sure you get that

I get compliments on the tank!

Great looking tank! I bought this along with the Squidward house. I read some of the reviews prior to purchasing and hope all goes well. Easy to setup too! Looking forward to adding a Betta.

Broke in a month!

The light went dead in less than a month! Ended up trying to contact Fluval customer service and never got a response. Finally read that a magnet might trip it and it worked...For a couple of months. Now it’s dead again. Complete waste of money. My poor betta is in the dark until I can afford a new tank

Elegant but not perfect

After adding a heater this tank will work well for a single betta and I'm planning to use it as a hospital tank after restarting my 20 gal. Pros: aesthetically pleasing, filter is super quiet, the opening in the lid is too small for my cat's paws to get inside, has all the equipment you'd find in any other starter kit. The negative side of this tank is mostly in the filter. At unboxing, the impeller blade was rattling around loose inside the filter box. The light and filter being on the same plug removes your ability to put the light on a timer. Why, why is there a light shining out of the top of the filter ALL THE TIME? Save yourself some money and cut filter media to size rather than buying the premade cartridges and throw some biomedia in the top of the filter.

It's not 5 gallons and the light doesn't last.

I don't know why it says this tank is a 5-gallon. I literally did a water change with a 1 gallon pitcher and I filled a little more than 3 pitchers full of water and left about an inch or two of water at the bottom. I think it's a 3 1/2 gallon. Have not had for even a year and the LED lights stopped working. It's cheaper to buy a whole new tank than to buy the replacement part. Won't be buying this tank again though. Too bad because it is really pretty!
