All of this has to sit underneath our 10 gallon aquarium hood
If you're looking for one of the best 10 gallon fish tanks but are tired of seeing the black rims covering the tank then Penn Plax has you covered. Their durable designed tank will give you the perfect 10 gallon aquarium set-up complete with lid, LED light and a cascade filter.
It's Dimensions are 17 3/4" L x 12 5/8" H x 11 3/4" W, making the tank a little longer of a base than most normal 10 gallon fish tanks. Adding in the light will bring the height to a solid 16 inches.
The hood of the tank in an easy to see through and durable plastic that comes on a hinge to allow for easy access and covering of your tank. Be sure to only wipe this plastic clean and to never scrub. While it can hold the crystal clear look for ages, scratching the lid is still a possibility.
The light is suspended over the tanks center and easily provides enough light to feed any plant located at the bottom of the tank. The lights themselves are highly efficient LED bulbs that will well out last any normal florescent bulb. As the light is suspended over the middle of the tank, any high mounted center piece could block the light from lower objects. Keep this in mind when decorating your tank.
The filter included in the kit is a cascade internal filter. These are known to be high quality and have actually been reported as too strong for some fish. This however is not a real problem as the filters strength is adjustable. The cascade is effective at keeping your tank clear and providing decent flow for smaller tanks, leaving the heater to be the only missing item.
When placing the tank be sure not to bump the bottoms too hard on the edges of your table. While normal bumps won't cause any damage, the glass is a bit more sensitive than the normal black rims. Once in place their will be no issues with durability, as the seals will last a lifetime.
Should the aquarium kit arrive damaged or have any sort of manufacturing fault Penn Plax will happily replace your entire kit. Because there is no risk involved with this set-up and it holds a unique look, the Curved Corner Aquarium easily sits as the second or first best 10 gallon fish tank Kit.
The problem is not all equipment fits into the cutouts provided
Certainly the most eye drawing on this list, the Tetra half moon is a wonderfully designed tank. The curved shape of the tank allows for a great view at all angles, cutting out the corners that create distortions when viewing from the corners of a normal tank.
The base is notably smaller than most 10 gallon fish tanks, allowing you to fit this tank in more areas than usually. Small kids dressers or on an end table are great ideas.
The included features are a clear lid, suspended lighting, powerful filtration and a 50 watt heater. The filter, a tetra whisper, is actually strong enough that I recommend turning it off during feeding time. Leaving it on may suck up your fish's food before they can eat their fill. Inside the filter you will find two different sized filter media cartridges. The first is a normal white mesh filter media used for mechanical filtration. This simply catches waste and houses beneficial bacteria. The second of these filter cartridges is a black cartridge used for activated carbon. The filter cartridges are the Tetra Whisper Bio-Bags, size medium.
The heater keeps the water to your desired temperature while the light will give you fairly even lighting. Be carful not to obstruct the middle of the lid as the light does not reach all the way to the ends as a light strip does. As for the strength of the light it is a bit sub-par. Don't get me wrong the fish tank stays bright but higher light demanding plants won't grow correctly under this light. If you are going to use live plants consider using .
