WAY TOO SMALL

This cylinder is too small for any fish at less than 1 gallon of water, and the fact that it is taller than it is wide is a problem as fish need horizontal room to swim. Also, for a betta, which is the fish one usually sees in tiny glass containers, a tank needs a lid because bettas jump.
Please take the time to research a prospective pet's needs and make sure you have what you need to meet those needs before buying a pet, even a fish. They are living creatures who deserve a healthy habitat.

I started having betta's as pets about 5 years ago.
Up till now I had purchased the plastic betta tanks they featured along with the betta's and at one point had a 3 gallon plastic aquarium. My experience was that the chemicals react with the acrylic aka plastic thus within a day the water looks murky and every plastic tank developed stress cracks. Finally I purchased this glass cylinder for my betta. Blue, that's my betta's name, seems very happy in it. I included a place for him to hide, one of those stick on leaves for him to rest on near the top and a heater. So far no stress cracks and the chemical does not react with the glass as it did with the acrylic. I give this a 4 only because I don't have my betta in a full aquarium setup. For parents who purchase a betta for their child, go with a glass bowl or cylinder such as this one, which is much larger than what they usually show to keep a betta in.
Plus, this looks nice in a child's room, an end table in a living room, etc. Cleans up nicely, also and, unlike acrlic, does not turn cloudy over time.

I bought this tank for my Betta fish about a week ago and he loves it! He swims around in circles and hangs out near the bamboo that I added to it. I think this is a wonderful tank for Bettas or a small goldfish.
Pros: easy to install, easy to clean, sturdy

Terrible product. It doesnt allow you fish to grow or swim freely.

This is an ideal size for shrimp, snails, and plants. That's it. It isn't even a gallon! Even if it was, the cylinder shape isn't even ideal for fish. It will cause them way too much stress. Don't get it for your fish. Sorry Petsmart.
Pros: easy to install, sturdy
Cons: hard to clean
