New 5 Gal. Hawkeye Tank

Got it the other day from Wal-Mart & set it up yesterday. Nice tank, IMO, and WELL worth the $25.00 (free shipping - yay!!!).

Came with everything except a heater - an Aqua-Tech power filter (had to baffle it), hood & 9 watt screw in fluorescent bulb.

Took some pics, but I'm having trouble getting them off the camera & on my computer, so I only have one to show you. It's with the light off.

Thank you and yes they are.

To me, the tanks looks LARGER than a 5 gal. - probably because of the shape. :)

Thank you all for the nice comments.

I don't know why, but the java moss that is covering the driftwood doesn't show up in the picture. :(

The betta in there is "Prince" and he is a 7 month old comb tail - kinda on the small side, IMO, but I think he is very pretty. :)
