Responsible Fishkeeping

Aquariums are fun, relaxing, rewarding, therapeutic and educational. As manufacturers and fishkeepers ourselves, we take great pride in making top quality products while helping educate our fellow fishkeepers to ensure they are successful, and their fish are healthy and happy. The general rule for tank size is one inch of fish per gallon. However other factors should be considered, such as: 

  • How large will the fish be as an adult?
  • Is it species that is active and needs larger space? Or is it a solitary fish?
  • Is it a schooling fish that needs to be in groups of five or more?
  • Is it a fish that produces a lot of waste?
  • Is it a species that is aggressive, does best with others of the same species type, or is it a more peaceful type that would be a good fit in a community tank?
Small aquariums are a great way to get started in the freshwater hobby, and with any new hobby involving   living creatures, it is always best to learn as much as you can. And when buying fish, ask your retailer for guidance in choosing the right fish for your size aquarium. 

This aquarium is appropriate for keeping one Betta or up to two community tropical fish (We don’t recommend goldfish in any kit smaller than three gallons due to waste levels.)

While Tetra® brand takes pride in producing quality products, it is important to understand these freshwater starter aquariums offered by Tetra are not suitable for keeping saltwater fish. Saltwater aquariums require more advanced types of filtration, larger sized aquariums for most marine species, an understanding of saltwater chemistry, and special feeding and care regimens. We encourage our customers to learn more about all aspects of fishkeeping by visiting the links below, joining our Facebook pages, signing up for TetraCare.com, or calling our customer service at 800-526-0650.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Making having a pet is easy! I am falling in love with this product. It gives me the piece of mind of owning fishes as pet. Beside the light glow in the dark, I enjoy the quiet filter inside.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from no bubbles It's a cool container, but the filter is quite loud and it does not make any bubbles (like the picture on the box would imply) - just light. I'm using it without the filter for my beta.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i love this little tank! I have this little tank in my office with a betta in it and I absolutely love it! any little kids that come in love to watch Leo (my bettas name is Leo). he's so happy, makes huge bubble nests and he's probably the healthiest fish i've ever owned! this tank though is seriously perfect for a betta, its a great size and having a filter in it helps so you don't have to do a full water change every day! I could go on forever about how awesome this tank is!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great starter kit My 3yr old son wanted a fish so we bought him a betta and this for a starter kit. It was a bit frustrating trying to get the bubble and pump flow to work at the same time but I got it and I must say the bubble affect is beautiful. The red one went out after a few days but I took it out n moved it a bit and it came back on yay! The colors are beautiful and make a nice reflection on my sons ceiling as a bouns a great night light affect. All in all we love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work When I first got it the filter worked fine but the bubbles never worked. Now, after a few weeks even the filter does not work. I don't recommend this.
