The overall look of an aquarium is mostly pleasing to the fish owner‘s eyes. I speak from personal experience. The very first aquarium I had for my little goldfish was round, but well, just round. There was nothing fancy about it.
At that time there weren’t may different models of aquariums available and my goldfish was happy enough with his small aquarium. He entertained himself by producing bubbles and then chasing them all over his little fish tank.
If this Waterfall Globe Aquarium Kit would have existed back then when I had my little goldfish I‘d have gotten it in a heartbeat. Why?
First of all it‘s a kit. That means that you don‘t just get an aquarium but with it a built-in waterfall, lighting and a power filter for filtration. The waterfall is an eye-pleasing touch for you and a fun playground for your fish – and it filters the water constantly and keeps the aquarium clean. Many fish don‘t like to be disturbed in their peace and the safety of their aquarium home. Having an aquarium that filters and cleans the water itself is better for their comfort.
One detail I love about this waterfall globe aquarium is that you can change its look as you wish by replacing the existing aquarium substrate with a new one in another color and by adding new aquarium accessories to it. With the included LED lighting you can illuminate your new aquarium environment.
A kit is always good for new fish owners, you or your kids. This one is really nice because it‘s not too big and it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. This aquarium is good for a single fish, but if you want to get two fish that‘s fine too. I wouldn’t recommend more than two though because of the aquarium‘s size.
Two words of advice: This small aquarium isn’t suited for bigger fish and the waterfall swirl might cause problems for tiny fish. The other advice is about the lighting. I’d recommend to turn the light off when you leave house and keep the aquarium unattended. You don’t just save energy but give also some calming time in darkness for your fish.

I have had this aquarium for a few weeks, now I can personally say my Betta has never been happier in his new home. He swims around more, instead of sitting on the leaf of one of the plants. I personally like the sleekness of the design. It looks great in my room. It having a single cord to power both the light and the filter is a great feature.
Very easy to clean. I didn’t want a tank that I couldn’t clean by myself. This one is the perfect size for our fish. Waterfall filtration works well so the tank stays clean longer. This tank is attractive. I made a little spot for it in the kitchen and it looks awesome. Waterfall is very quiet.
I had a 6-year-old betta fish that was getting to a very old age. I purchased this set and he lived another year. Although the current was a little too strong for the old man it kept the water clean so I didn’t have to put him through the stress of a complete bowl clean. Food he wouldn’t eat was cleaned out and he was so much happier.
