Any feedback on this tank?

I saw a tank on Amazon that I would love to get for my betta. I don't know about the filter, but I'll probably want to replace it if I can. It's a 6.6 gallon bookshelf tank:

I guess I like it because it's short and long, which I think my betta would love.

Anybody know anything about this tank? Any reason I shouldn't get it?

I would love to have a cycled tank.

Feedback? :)

Thanks!

It looks like a great aquarium. I don't see any reason why you shouldn't get it.

PetCo has free shipping on $49 or more in purchases. So if you're going to need anything else, you might want to check them out. Also, the turnaround time. It's a lovely aquarium.

I have this tank and love it. The filter is adjustable and very quiet.
The only (small) downside is that it's plastic and scratches easily.
I would have more of them if I had the room

Here's a picture of mine, excuse the dark water, my driftwood is still leaking tannins

I have this tank and really like it. It fits perfectly on my bookshelf. I don't use the filter as it is not cycled.

I replaced the light bulb with something for live plants.

I also have this tank...it's a good one. :) whiskandbowl had it right about the filter...it's a good one. Also right in that it does scratch easy.

But I love it. So my opinions? Get it! :)

excuse the thread hijack but what is the width (front to back) of this tank? I was just thinking about getting one and can't find a real solid answer.

Your betta should be very happy as long as you dont use a strong power filter in the tank. Definently better than a tiny bowl/vase!
