This clear plastic hexagon shaped aquarium is great for Bettas, and with the addition of a heater, small tropical fish. The kit includes a clear plastic canopy with convenient feeding hole, an auto-changing LED bubbling disk, air driven Whisper® internal filter, small Whisper® Bio-Bag®, and an air pump to drive both the airstone and filter.

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.)

This product comes in the following size: 1 gallon (7.5" x 7.5" x 7.7")
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.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Far too small for a betta, or 2 fish... Those from the fish keeping community would wholeheartedly agree that a 1 gallon tank is far too small for a betta fish (or any fish). If you are considering this tank for a betta, consider (at minimum) a 3 gallon tank with a filter and heater. Tetra has a 3 gallon model that is great for bettas (and comes with heater and filter) With the reference of 2 community freshwater fish, I would also advise against that. The waste from fish (and what you feed it) would spike ammonia levels and be potentially fatal. Personally, I would not have a single fish in a 1 gallon tank, as you would need to do multiple water changes weekly just to keep the toxin levels down. They are correct with their advisement against a goldfish, they would need a 10gl tank at minimum (with no heater...they are coldwater fish). I promise I am not trying to come off as a fish snob. :) I am just someone who has invested a great deal of time into the hobby and try to share advice with others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not suitable for Betta This take is great. But, Betta fish also require heaters. They're are a tropical fish. I also don't agree with having the Bubbles turned on to high, as Betta fish don't do so well in currents. It tends to stress them out. Aswell as the filter, if you have a Betta in your tank make sure the filter is turned down low. Also, I seen a few pictures with fake plants and Betta fish. This is a big no, Betta fish will easily tear their beautiful fins on these. Real plants are the way to go, or silk.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs somem work I purchased this tank for a little desk top aquarium. Within 24 hours one of the bulbs went out. I have contacted the company and I am waiting for a response. I hope they send a replacement. Other than that, it is a great little tank for a desktop.
