I got the 5 gal walmart with led and it is going back. the Led light is laughable!!!!!!there are better tanks out there. The marineland 10 gallon with LED and biowheel filtration is still the best i have seen.

I just bought this tank the heater is awesome the led light is awesome has a daytime/nighttime switch, the filter is a bit of a monster it does 100 gph so basically that means every 6 minutes it has filtered all the water.I just dont see a way to baffle it down I am going to think about it for a few days and see what I can come up with and it comes with one of the stick on outside themometers but the led hood is the real appeal of this tank be it they are 20 bucks or more by themselves

I also just bought this tank and I love it! Its so nice looking, and the blue shimmering light is pretty cool at night. I cant wait to get my fish into it! I don't think you can go wrong with this aquarium!

P.S. The filter is crazy strong, ill be trying the foam sock for the input as well!

My beta has swam right up against the intake and it has been fine. However, the flow is really strong and jostles him about when hes in the middle. I will be trying to baffle it to stop it from being so strong.

Also, I have to turn it off to feed him. And, even when I do, the food doesn't float in this water for some reason. Ill have to look into that. But the tank is gorgeous, and the heater works really well though.

I have the tank you're looking at, and I've had it for a year now. I really love it. The lighting, heater and filter are fantastic. But like others have mentioned the filter is a little strong. My fish seem to do fine with it however, but they are tetras. There are ways of muffling the flow though. I think you'll be really happy with it if you get it. :)

intake issue with biowheel filter solved

This biowheel filter is strong! I am going to try and baffle mine also. But the solution to the intake is to purchase a fluval sponge filter (no. 1). It is less than $3.00 and just slides onto the intake. Instant protection against fins getting trapped AND provides bio media that is healthy to the tank. I have cherry shrimp in this tank and they are always on this filter picking up some nutrition!!!!
