Is this a good tank?

Hi!~
Just out of curiosity, is this (Hawkeye 2 hex, 1.6 gal) any good a tank? I'm considering replacing my two 1.5 gallons with this because of the full hood and light - however, there was only one review and that wasn't enough to completely change my opinion. So just curious, has anyone used the tank before, and if so is it any good? ouo
Thank you kindly.~ :3

I'm afraid a small tank is really all I have room for at the moment, though. Everywhere in my house that I could have a bigger tank has already been taken, haha. I'd like to get a bigger tank than these, of course, but at the moment it's little tank or no tank at all. /dead

Walmart has a great 2.5 gallon kit that's not too much money and it really doesn't take up more space than the 1.6 gallon. I wouldn't use the divider in this tank though because it's too small of a space for 2 bettas.

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hawkeye-Be...vider/14660255 - This is $20 a piece

Or they have a 5 gallon kit that you could divide for $25

Chang is always good

I think the tank would be good because change is necessary chang is always good but it will take some time to adjust.

Are they glass or plastic? I don't use anything plastic with my fish.

I breed in my 10 gallon tank, all other tanks are 20 gall or 3ft and 4ft

I have this thing about fish being put in these tiny containers, as soon as my Betta are large enough they go straight into a 20gall tank.

For 1 or 2fish 10gall is plenty, any smaller makes me sad.

You'll find there are many different opinions on this board about tank sizes :) I prefer my Bettas in 3g tanks, nothing over 5g :) 5/5 of my Bettas are in plastic tanks as well :)

That is fine by me.

I was only saying how I felt about tank size personally.

If your fish are happy that is all that matters, I have tried to put mine in smaller twin tanks, but they fret straight away, once they have been in a larger tank they just don't like the small space of the twin tanks.

I actually had to give away to a breeder friend all my beautiful goldfish, I needed the 4ft tank for my Betta Lol he has a swimming pool he uses as a fish pond, so my beauties will be happy.

I am in awe of the different personalities of these Betta.
