    Worked Flawlessly, but Filter Design was cleverly disguised Death Trap This tank seems like a good, quality starting tank. Setup was easy and it came with everything I needed for my betta fish including water conditioner and food. Unfortunately my fish seemed to think that death was preferable to confinement. When I put first placed him in the the tank he seemed much more lively and active, but soon after I noticed that he seemed to be hiding underneath the filter. Thinking that perhaps the current was too strong, I turned it off while I thought of a way to dampen the current. But when I woke up the next morning to check on him I found that he had wedged himself into the small niche that is formed by the indent in the corner of the filter and died. Disappointing to say the least.I’m giving the product 3 stars, because no one else has mentioned any sort of similar issue so perhaps my fish was just the William Wallace of its kind, but the indent in the filter seems unnecessary and most sources that I’ve read seem to think that you don’t even really need a filter for betta tanks with less than 5 gallons. Couple that with a fish who prefers tight spaces and it seems like more trouble than it saves.I’m going to get a second fish and update this review depending on how things go.

    Great tank!! This tank is great.I keep a betta and 1 african dwarf frog in there.the filter is not too strong for the betta or the frog and it keeps the water crystal clear. it is roomier than a 1 gallon tank seems.i got a mini heater and the betta and the frog are happy.This tank rocks!!!however do not leave the light on for too long it is not meant as all day lighting because it will get too hot and it will deform the hood.

    An ideal tank for a betta It is an ideal tank size for a betta. The filter works just fine and not too strong for the betta. I like the two convenient open holes for easy feeding. The light seems to generate too much heat if it is turned on for a long period of time which can cause the top cover melting out. I put in about an inch of gravel at the bottom. The water looks so clean after a week later. I can now do the 50 percent water change on the weekly basic. The betta seems to be happy with it.
