Marineland’s newest kits are available in either three or five gallon glass aquarium sizes.  All kits feature Marineland 3-stage hidden filtration with a Rite-SizeTM Z Cartridge and Marineland Bio-Foam® (included in the kit), and include an adjustable flow filter pump.  Bright white and blue energy efficient LED lights feature a 3-way switch (toggle between white and blue, off, and blue-only settings).  The white LEDs create a shimmering light in the water that mimics the underwater effect of sunlight, and the blue LEDs produce a relaxing moonlight glow.  The kits feature either a hinged or sliding glass canopy for easy feeding and water care dosing.  These easy-to-assemble kits are beautifully designed and easy to maintain.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Glass canopy can't fit the top of the tank I bought 2 of these tanks (Marineland 5 gallons glass aquaquarium upright) and really like the sleek design of this glass aquarium. However, one of the glass canopy of the tank was not glued properly (somehow) to the sliding plastic rails holding the glass, making it did not fit and can not close/slide on top of the tank. I really don't know what to do with this now?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Focul Point in any Room I bought the Marineland Contour 5 aquarium and it was so easy to set up and decorate. It's tall so easy to user taller plants or larger pieces of driftwood or rock. It is home to my one little betta and he loves it. I love it. Great focal point in any room.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low Build Quality I really liked this little 5 gallon tank. But after only a few months of normal use the plastic filter cover started to warp and sag down, which interferes with the glass lid sliding back. Also the plastic elbows for the pump tubing are already cracking. For these reasons I say the build quality is low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I adore this tank I’ve had this tank for months and couldn’t ask for a more beautiful set up. It works perfectly and I have a very happy betta and nerite.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I had such high hopes for this tank !! I bought this over a month ago for a Betta and Alge eater i have together in a tank, i wanted something more modern and glass! I saw a handful of reviews that it was ok with a Betta. From go we had issues the filter has an adjustment that changes the Flo.... well it was only working on HIGH so much that it was slashing outside of the tank. Betta was not happy at all, I called C/S they said maybe the filter system was too strong ( even tho i explained the adjustment knob for flo was not changing the flo at all ) so i waited a week they send me a new smaller system that is frankly not enough for this tank. While i appreciate the c/s maybe sending a replacement of the system that goes with this tank would of been better.... now my tank is cloudy within a week .... very disappointed because i love he style of this tank. I think I’m going to have to find another tank system altogether.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful but not safe for fish The fish can somehow get over the filter wall divider and I just got fish yesterday and it's happened twice. They are guppies. The tank is beautiful but this is not fish friendly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short Light Life I bought this in November but it sat unused until January. I have live plants in my tank so I used the lights around 6 to 7 hours a week day and I came in to the office Monday and the lights no longer work. Three months seems to be a very short lifespan for LED lights, especially when compared to my Tetra fluorescent light that still works and has been for the last 6 to 7 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I bought this about a year ago as my first fresh water tank and it works grate it has all the things I needed to start it all I needed to bye on the side was rocks,plants and big rocks so my fish can swim in. It has a white light and a blue light with a filter. It has been about 6 months since I bought it and I just cleaned it and it was fine all those six months i have no heater in the tank right now and it is 25 degrees and now that my fresh water fish have passed I will lots of years to come with this fish tank.

I am setting up my tank and water keeps filling the back chamber where the pump sits. Is that supposed to be a dry area?

Asked by: mmarchet
No not at all. The chamber fills with water as it pours through the intake on the right hand side, and the pump then circulates it back out. It should continuously flow in and out, so the pump and filter media can keep it clean and oxygenated. The pump is submersible. BREX

hello I bought the 5 gallon tank and was wondering what else do I need to set this up? does it come with one filter ? also, do I need to buy a heater for this tank to have fish? thank you!

Asked by: Jjchavz
It does come with your first cartridge, as well as the foam you need. Keep the foam and rinse it monthly. You will need gravel, heater, decor, water conditioner, and food to set it up. I would also recommend Aquarium Bacteria. In regards to your question about the heater, for the most part, yes. The majority of fish require a heater. However, if your home stays a stable temperature around 70 degrees, there are a few cold water fish such as danios, white cloud minnows, or bloodfin tetras. Mosquito fish and paradise fish are a couple of other possibilities although the latter would be the only fish in the tank. BREX

I need to add a heater to my contour 5. Can I put it in behind where the filter is or must it be on the aquarium side where it is visible to the eye?

Asked by: Amber81
It has to be on the aquarium side. If you put it in the filter chamber, and the pump becomes clogged, the water may drain out of that chamber or basically not refill and the heater can be exposed, which is not safe. BREX
