I had originally purchased the 4 gallon but decided to go with the 8 gallon which is perfect, not too small and not too large. The fish love having more room to move around.

Read the Directions: No Gravel on Filter!

Two previous comments mention not enough gravel to cover the filter... This is a special gravel made to work with the filter, it is NOT to be placed on top of the filter. It will not perform well if you place rocks or plants on top or it.
You want to be able to look in and down at the filter and see how dirty it is so you can replace it. I have had mine BiOrb for about 5 years and just love it. Beautiful and a real treat to watch Beta become so happy & friendly compared to being in a small, filter-less tank. With the curvature of the tank, you put the special gravel all around the very bottom, put some plants on top of the gravel, then you can add some pretty polished river rocks, being careful to NOT put ANYTHING on the filter. From the sides, you will not see the filter, you will have to walk up to the tank & look down in.
It is a wonderful aquarium, but I urge you to read the directions or look them up online.

I have this tank with a fantail goldfish In it and she seems to really like it and there's plenty of room for her to swim and it looks pretty on my shelf except my tank is in my room and the air bubbler is pretty noisy for a room and the theres not enough gravel to cover up the filter so i just pushed them all to the front so it looks better from a distance and its kinda expensive for a acrylic tank but over all a good tank
