The popular thing that I see people do is just get it for the tank it self, and pretty much get a different filter and a light. The filter isn't great for much of anything besides a betta or gourami (both are related). I wouldn't trust it for any heavier bioloads without modding. The only real good thing about the stock tank is that the current is gentle enough for longer finned bettas.

It is a nice tank, but I think the Fluval Spec V looks better and does a way better job of filtering.

My community tank Chi has a number of tropical fish and the filter is handling the load fine.

I could have bought a Spec for my betta instead of a second Chi, but the Spec box explicitly says the filter is deliberately overpowered for its size, and that made me concerned that a betta wouldn't handle it well.
