Good or Bad?

I plan on getting this tank for both of my Bettas... It is 2.5 gallon. I have read the reviews... some say the filter is too powerful, some say it is gentle, some say it is quiet, some say it is loud.
The tank itself looks pretty good, and I just wanted to know...
- Does anyone have this tank?
- If so, is it reliable?
- Is the light okay?
- Is the filter suitable for Bettas?

Dude that tank is quiet as heck! I have one for my Smirnoff! ^^ The filter is a little too strong, so I use a baffle on it. But other than that, the lighting is good and it's a strong tank too

I don't personally own one, but from what I've heard they are great little tanks and very popular for bettas. :)

I currently own two of these tanks, in punky purple, and i have to say they are without a doubt sturdy, reliable, and visually pleasing tanks. If this is something you are thinking about purchasing for your betta, I highly recommend them! :) The only downsides I have encountered with these tanks are that the filters are not so great, at least in my opinion. So I replaced them both with this filter:http://www.bigalsonline.com/productD...ductId=8438785 and I swapped the incandescent bulbs for flourescent ones that can be purchased at Wal Mart. Hope this helps, and good luck finding a new home for your betta! :)

This is a nice 5 gal. tank for only $26.00 (plus shipping, of course). I own three & LOVE them. Yes, you have to baffle the filter, but still a terrific tank at a terrific price, IMO. :)

Yay! I might be getting $65 soon, so I can buy two for my two Bettas. :)
