Marineland Contour Desktop Aquarium Kits 3 Gallon Contour 3 Aquarium Kit (Mfg# ML90610)
I had a tough decision on whether to buy this aquarium or a competitor with their 3-gallon version. So happy that I chose Marineland. I think this aquarium is well-designed overall. The only complaint that I have is that the filter cover on the back could be made sturdier. Like some other people have commented, it warps easily. I love the way this aquarium looks in my home. I have one betta, two African dwarf frogs, four cardinal tetras and two white clouds all living happily. I'd like to comment on the water flow. Some people have complained that the water flow is too strong for their betta. Rather than modifying the filter tubes, just create an environment with plants and other decorations so the betta has a place to go if he wants to avoid a strong current. If you want a beautiful aquarium and you don't have a lot of room, check out the Marineland 3 Gallon Contour 3. You'll love it!

First of all, do yourself a favor and buy this tank only here! DS&F sent my 5 gallon tank well packaged and in excellent condition. I've owned the tank now for a month and I absolutely love it. The light and the pump plug in independently, so if one fails, either one can be easily replaced. The kit doesn't come with a heater or a temperature gauge but a water heater can easily fit in the filter back section so it's unseen. It's just a great little tank! I have it setup in my office at work and it looks great.

Best All Glass Rounded Corner Nano Aquarium Ever !
The MarineLand Contour Nano Aquarium totally Surpassed my Best Expectations, complete with 9 Daylight LED's and 6 Switched UV LED's and a Powerful Mini Pump with Adjustable Flow providing Mechanical, Biological & Chemical Filtration and enough space in the Filter Section to hide my Fully Submersible Aqueon Pro Polymer Exterior Aluminium Core Shatterproof +/- 1o F.Auto Shut Off when Run Dry 50W Heater, and a small bag of Zeolite, Ammonia Removing API Chips.
To keep my Aggressive Fish Separate from the Peaceful ones, I purchased two Contour Tanks, and placed a Hydor Volcano in one, and Penn-Plax Bubble Wall in the other, to have Ample Oxygenation available and allow me to have many more inhabitants than normal in each of the two 5 G. Nano Aquariums. I also provide Lots of Vegetation, to provide hiding places to all the newborn babies we had this week.
How could I Possibly Ask for Anything More ? I am Delighted !

This is the best, well thought out, mini, all glass aquarium that (in my mind) is made. It's very easy to assemble, and all parts fit perfectly. I love the glass top; and the LED lighting is perfect. the wires for the filter and LED light are hid behind the black filter which fills the entire back aquarium; which also serves as the perfect background to accentuate everything. It could easily be converted into a mini reef using a mini reef light. I give it 5+ stars! Also, it's aesthetically appealing. Mine is the 5 gallon version.
No question about it. If you're looking for an all glass mini-aquarium - look no further. This is the deal!
