Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of this world customer service! I bought the contour 5 desktop fish tank about a year ago and established a fresh water tank. About a month ago I realized the filtration system took a dump on me.. I reached out to customer service (that was very helpful through the cleaning process) and even after it wasn’t working.. well instead of just sending the new filtration system like I had anticipated, they were gracious enough to send me a whole new fish tank! I cannot thank you enough for all of your help Marineland!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Axolotl Condo Hi there, I bought this awesome 3 gallon Contour tank 4 days ago, just got it set up on day 5. LOVE IT and it is perfect for my daughter's Axolotl ( no heavy filter flow, etc. ). But I would like to suggest better directions for setting up the filter. I had to go to some guy's YouTube to figure out what the heck was I doing wrong. Number 1, I got confused because the 3 gallon tank and 5 gallon tank parts and pieces were on my 3 gallon assembly paper, it only said 3g or 5g with model number ( I didn't know what the heck that was until I did research online). I thought I was missing a part so instead of bugging the guy at the fish store a second time, I tried to be creative and went to the hardware store for longer tubes ( photo number 1 where it says pump tube I was looking for a hard plastic tube). Number 2, I didn't know that the pump was to actually be submerged INTO the back water compartment or anywhere in the water, number three, I had no idea what to do with the elbows. All and all I am HAPPY AND THRILLED with my purchase, but the directions need to be a little clearer. I have had TONS of aquariums throughout the decades with many different pumps and filters, but I have never been so confused before. Totally would recommend to a friend, but I would have to help them now that I know.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Filter trouble My only complaint is the filter was silent the first few minutes I turned it on, but then it starts making a strange noise (it still runs when it does this, but it's annoying). Is there any way I can fix this?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Tank Portrait 5 gal I've had this tank for about 2 months. I ordered it from Big Al's. I am new to fish keeping and had questions about the tank. The help desk was happy to walk me through things. I was wondering if there were accessories for this tank. It would be great if there were a media basket that fit the sump. I wanted to use the Marineland activated carbon and the Marineland bio balls. I would have given it 5 stars if there were accessories that allowed me to extend and enhance the tank.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3 gallon reef tank I have my tank for 7 months and its a great nano reef tank. I'm making a plexiglas hood with custom leds and cooling fan. I'll post a updated picture in about a week with the hood on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it I just recently bought the Contour 5 and it is beautiful, it is very sleek and not bulky looking, the design is very pretty. The filter is silent and works well but the instructions on how to set it up wasn't very clear because I didn't know if I was supposed to keep the filter pump in the back. Although it is very simple and easy to set up which I like. It is the perfect desktop tank because it doesn't take up much room and is perfect for Bettas and small fish. The only question I have is where do I get a replacement lighting once it dies?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 gallon Portrait We love our 5 gallon Portrait aquarium! Beautiful design, love the LED lighting, and the filtration system is super quiet. Our male Betta and African Dwarf Frog couldn't be happier! Thanks Marineland!

The filter pump has stopped working. Along with the maintenance of the fish tank, the filter pump was also cleaned. How can I fix or replace the filter pump as sooon as possible. Thanks. 

Asked by: Dopemate
Be sure to remove the front cover, take out the impeller, and clean it well with white vinegar and a soft cloth. Run a q tip with white vinegar in and around the inside of the pump as well, then rinse well. If you need more help, call 1-800-322-1266. BREX
