I ordered 6 and 3 were cracked but they replaced the 3 immediately and I was able to keep the 3 cracked ones. My husband fixed them so now I have 9 5 gallons for the price of 6. Pretty awesome deal to me and great customer service. My husband doesn't like that they are blue but I think they are nice looking. I did have to buy heater for all of them but with the price of the tanks it wasn't an issue.
I do really like the look of the hex tanks but with all of the bettas I had to go for cheap but awesome! :)
I own that tank also for one of my boys - just couldn't pass up the price!!!
One thing about the 5 gal. tanks you just got - don't use the decorations that come with it - at least not for bettas. The plants are too scratchy and the "rock" has some holes a betta could get stuck in. Seems to me one of our posters here lost one of her boys that way. :(
Sorry to hear some came cracked, but it's good your husband was able to fix them!
What really makes the 2 gal. hex so awesome, IMO, is the lighting - I just LOVE it!!! Now, if only I could find a FIVE gal. with the same type to light set-up for cheap I would be one happy camper!!!!
