Review Of This Amazing Aquarium

Before using this Tetra 20 gallon aquarium, I’m using a Hexagon Aqua Scape Aquarium at my home to keep goldfish. I decide to change the aquarium after a year because it is hard for me to do cleaning and in the same time I found this amazing Tetra 20 gallon Complete Aquarium kit. I order it from ebay which the aquarium is delivery in well packed manner. The aquarium are pack with Styrofoam around the edges and the glass of this aquarium are sturdy as I read the review from other sites. As my aquarium reach perfectly fine I have no complain about it.

You will find this kit when your aquarium is arrived and if there some kit gone missing, you need to send back for the change:

  • A Glass aquarium
  • LED light bar which are part at the canopy
  • A filter with Tetra brand, Mini Heater and a paper of thermometer to maintain the temperature. This is the crucial kit you need to have for keeping freshwater fish.
  • It also come with AquaSafe water conditioner
  • It also come with Plastic plant, a large plant in green color and other 3 are red and green.

Setting up the aquarium is definitely challenging but for this Tetra 20 gallon aquarium kit is easy. You can add the decoration by yourself and it is very flexible. If you have no idea here a video that can give you an example of decorating your aquarium. There also user guide in the box that can guide you how to setup up your aquarium step by step.

You eventually will finish the setup in no time by following the guide and make sure all the setup is done properly. Some comment commenting about rattling sound came out from the hood when closing but it can be fix. I had no problem in the rattling sound and be alert during the setup. The filter is quiet and soothing noise was heard and this is really amazing.

The LED light creates light effect but it don’t show the plant original color. Since the original artificial plant come with different color, you probably need to get a new set of artificial plant. I don’t recommended live plant because the lighting are not suitable for the live plant which you may need to spend extra to get a new plant.

The plant mat from the aquarium kit itself are good enough for the fish to glide through the plants which I found it save for most of the goldfish like bubble eye goldfish. I really love this product from Tetra and grateful of the design whenever I look at the fish living peacefully.
Here are the Pros and Cons of this aquarium which you can evaluate the aquarium yourself.
