I will get in second, one goldfish or half a terrapin!

this aquarium provides spectacular high definition viewing



sorry that one is out of stock they only have HD ready ones now
Agree with the above posters reference the size. I have a 60l fish tank and even that is small

Not suitable for a goldfish unless you've got a large tank/ pond for when it grows.
Brilliant if you want a nano-reefg with clean up crew, a shrimp and 1 or 2 small fish though, which is what I have in mine..........but be aware that if you get the bug then you'll upgrade pretty quickly!
you can get a free 15l Nano tank free with a 12 month sub to Practical Fish Keeping (£53.30) Link
Seems a good price since you usually pay out your **** for one of these. Probably not really suitable for goldfish as previously mentioned, since technically (if you want them to lead full and happy lives) they need 20 Gallons for the first, 10 for every other fish.

Would be good for a small school of tropical fish, or 2 slightly larger ones.

Also, for those interested, I wouldn't recommend using "Instant tank cycling" products, just research 'tank cycling' and do it 'manually'. They don't really work, because its just a bottle of dead bacteria and ammonia. firsttankguide.net/cyc…php , this is a solid guide, just excuse the dated website design.
ive got in mine;
2 black widows
2 neons
a small catfish (not sure of the breed)
and 2 shrimp

they're happy enough.
Be careful about filling to the recommended water level as well...some fish need oxygen rich water, and by removing the available surface area to allow the oxygen to pass into the water effectivley, leaves you with some gulpy and unhappy fish.

Much the same goes for any of these "funiture piece" tanks - they look good, to most people, but long term are not the easiest thing to maintain.

For the money, I prefer the Juwel Korall tanks - a 54l version, with light unit and filter is going to set you back around £50!

The amount of efforts you need to maintain this tank is just mad..When I first bought it, I loved it so much but the lid, and the top glass restricted so much in maintenance, hence I decided to take the top glass off..And it is an impressive rimless tank..
Edited by: "heovang" 1st Sep 2012
I have the 46L version, its great. Nice size too.

Oh, and as for Goldfish...a definite NO, as has already been mentioned.

I hate to see poor Goldfish (single-tail pond types and fantail/ornamental types) stuck in small tanks - they more than most fish, need lots of oxygen in the water and 100% perfect water quality.

I've been keeping fish most of my life, but only have kept Goldfish seriously for the last couple of years and they have been the hardest to look after by far...and, regardless of what the majority of people think, will happily live for 15 years or more (even longer for the single tail/pond varities.)

This is my 450 litre tank..with my various Goldfish in and it's running two HUGE filters and most of the fish are topping 6+" in size, and still I need to buy a bigger tank!

EDIT: But, regardless, a good price for the tank

i managed to get a mint condition jewel vision 180 with cabinet, tons of accessories and loads of tropical fish, extra pump and heater, etc for £100 from of all places, ebay - if i bought everything new it would have cost me near £1200.

running costs arent cheap because of the all the filters,etc required but worth every penny

Excuse me if I'm wrong, but that is nowhere near 450l? Do you mean 45l? Bearing in mind your average saloon car has a 70 - 80 litre tank! Your tank equates to about 100 gallons!! If it is 450l, those fish must be about a foot long each?oO

I only paid £40 for the tank, light unit and stand and I find them so much more interesting than most Trops.

I keep trops and marines as well..but in much smaller setups :P

In this instance you are very wrong...the tank is 30" x 30" x 30" and works out to just shy of 100 UK Gallons.

Some of my fish are rather large. My white and red Comet is a foot in length, near enough.

To put it into perspective for you:

Nope, low iron glass gives a crystal clear view, compared to standard glass that will often give a green-ish tinge to what you are viewing.

A lot of aquarium producers will now use low iron glass, but older tanks (like my big one) are not using low iron and there is a noticeable difference.

Makes me sound a bit sad now really

Thats disgusting. Not enough room. An Iguana needs more than half a windowsill.

I didn't know it was suitable for humans, doesn't mention anything on the website!

If you are really planning on getting in, I suggest a bathtub from B&Q

Not even near big enough for a goldfish. I had one on it's own in a 60l and even that was cruel, it lived for around 5 years, but they can easily live for 10 more in a tank big enough.
They crap like there's no tomorrow, and a tank like this would become stinking within a couple of months at the most...

I have a friend who has a fancy goldfish in a 1 litre bowl and it depresses me just looking at it. Poor thing

read these are are difficult to get in and clean. i went for the chi over the edge anyway. good lil tank for the bedroom
Got one with 6 Gold fish inside. I don't get his it's too small malaki.
They look great but need constant maintenance to keep them clean which isnt easy with the small opening at the top.

i was told when i bought my hi fin pangasius that the shark will grow to the size of its environmental constraints? is this true only to this breed of shark or for all fish? just wondering as ppl seem to be going on about the size v goldfish?

cool looking tank thow!


I am still thinking about getting one of these as a large betta tank...only thing is if i keep it topped up will the little fella know where to breath when he's in the dark. i want to keep it topped up - i like the solid look it gives.

That applys to all fish however their internal organs continue to grow which leads to early death.

Ahh i see cheers for the reply!!.... he was a nasty sob eniway killed my angel fish and would attack anyone who put their hands in the water making cleaning a pain!!
I emptied out the water in mine and filled it with Lilt. Looks really tropical now.
The tank looks good/impressive especially with the light on but

- hard to clean
- small fish could get caught in the filter thingy on older versions, don't know if same for this version
- grill on top rusts very easily
