This is a great deal on an Aquarium with light and filter, would work well in a small space@$14.99 with free store pickup.
I would not recommend any plants other than something like a moss ball with just the LED light - would do great as a shrimp or betta tank with a snail! Aside from shrimp The only fish that would be happy in this is a betta. Highly recommend a heater for a betta if your room temp is under 76-78 or fluctuates a lot.

No no no no no
Anything under 2.5g is really not fair to a betta imo.
Just because they live in a cup until you buy it, doesn't mean it should live its whole life crammed in somewhere.
I know people with a single betta in a 20g tank.



Yes. It would be great as a betta tank or maybe 3 to 5 small schooling fish

My friend, this is a lie perpetuated by stores to justify keeping them in bowls. There are hundreds and thousands of articles and fishkeepers who would disagree with this, they are well adapted to surviving summers in that part of the world when water dries up but for the most part live in paddy fields and streams with plenty of room. They are able jumpers and can go from puddle to puddle in search of better pastures. Surviving is not the same as happiness and I doubt anyone would knowingly want to have an unhappy pet. In a home aquarium they do not have the luxury of moving and the water quality is harder to maintain in 1 gallon bowls. I would humbly recommend some more research on the topic. I would not recommend keeping any Betta in under 2.5, a reasonable minimum.

A tank can never be too big for a Betta (or any fish), only too small.



This tank is a very bad idea for schooling fish, as they will have no room to move around. Neon Tetras and Danios for example should have a minimum of 10g.



1 gallon is way too small for a Betta.

Head over to http://www.reddit.com/r/aquariums for some great advice on what to get.

I would not even use that filter. Add an air pump and a corner sponge filter and that would be all a betta needed.
Nice

Like a lizard?

I personally wouldnt put a reptile in anything under 5 gallons, but depending on the size of the reptile... This could work

Think this would be big enough for a small hermit crab?

Considering they would grow a bigger tank would be better..some fish sites suggest 10g minimum.

What do you think about using this as a hospital or for danios giving birth? I would move them back after the ritual.

Berta does not need air pump. It is air breather. It does not like flowing water either.

The air pump is to power the sponge filter so you can eliminate the hob filter that comes with it.
