3gallon JBJ picotope aquarium

This aquarium is beautiful, we'll crafted. it's perfect for my beta the current from the filter is soft and not to much for my fish which is hard to find. you can't get any better for the money love it.

In depth review

I bought this product to use with a large yellow haired Hawaiian hermit crab because it was attacking my other fish and I didn't want to get rid of him. I'm very impressed with the quality of the product the glasses very clear and very thick also the light supplied is more than adequate for the purposes I'm using it for I do also believe the light could grow some soft corals One of the trick to setting up this tank is using water from the tank that's already established I believe it would be very difficult to cycle this tank appropriately with the materials provided. If you do not already have an established tank of recommending going to your local fish store and seeing if you can purchase 3 gallons of established water Additionally using substrate from already established and provide you with many the better you will need For the tank I am running I chose to go with that by wheel 100 filter instead of the filter that was sent with in my opinion it's a much superior product and the filter came with I do not believe would support saltwater organisms however it may support coral The only issue with the tank is when the water pours back into the tank from the filter it creates bubbles which then pop and the tank has no lid so you may get some's small splashing around outside of the tank and when I say small I mean very small very small bubbles popping little droplets tiny tiny droplets of water Maypop out of the tank To remedy this issue I just saw to cut the bottom of the return off of the filters for the water ports directly down into the tank this seem to have the bubbles popping in the middle instead of me of edge with the filter shelf would direct them to

I have had this setup before and really liked it and I was very happy to see you still carry this small size tank with a big feel. Stays clean longer because it is bigger. I se it for a show Betta and it is great.

Great Pico Value

I wanted to throw together a pico planted tank and this fit the bill perfectly. The kit includes tank, light and filter. The tank is glass; one piece make the front and sides with a gentle bow in the front. The back is straight, the whole top sits on a solid glass base with a 3/4" lip. The 9w cfl fixture slips on and has 2 telescoping arms to allow you to place the light forward, back, high or low . (I'm going to replace the the 50/50 bulb with a plant friendly one). The filter is similar to the Azoo Palm filter but for some reason it's purple. Excellent filter materials; 3 stages of mechanical/bio/carbon. The water flow is fine for a fw planted tank, you might want to look into a Rapids mini-canister if you are planning on a mini-reef. This is a great package! Everything is well made and the parts by themselves would have been almost double the cost of the the kit.

elegant design

For a small tank, this is a beauty! The open style top lets you look in from above and visually adds space. The filter is silent and the light gives a nice glow to the water. Perfect for a table top or small space.
