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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little set up I have had my aquarium for about a year now and it came with everything I needed to set up a tank. I started with about 10 small fish like neon tetras and danio's. I set up a second tank and moved the danio's over and now have a beta in the tank. 8 months ago while cleaning the tank, I dropped lid that comes with the kit and broke it. I recently called to have a new one ordered, I was informed that they would replace the canopy at no charge to me, which included shipping. I received the new one within about a week but sadly, shipping had damaged a corner of the lid. I called back and with zero issues, they informed me that a new lid would be on its way and they didn't even require the damaged lid to be mailed back to them nor did they require photos. It was completely hassle free and I am amazed at the customer support they provided. By far the best I have ever received from anywhere.

What is the wattage output of the led lights on the contour 3 gallon is the lights strong enough for coral, sps and lps growth? 

Asked by: Markinmelbourne
Wattage gives you the amount of energy a light uses which tells you how it will affect your electric bill but that's about it. This light is only 6000 K and you need 10,000- 14,000 K for those types of animals. You would need to upgrade the light. K is for Kelvin. The light is 1.5 watts. BREX

I have 2 5 gallon Portrait tanks. On one of the tanks, the water in the back is level with the water in the front when the tank is unplugged. When the tank is plugged in, the water level in the back plunges and the level in the front rises. Any ideas?

Asked by: Alexis13
Thank you for your question, Alexis13. Yes, you need to take the pump apart and clean the impeller and inside the pump, change your cartridge or clean out the sponge. Your water is not flowing into the back chamber as it should, for some reason, or is flowing out slower than it should. BREX

I have the 3 gallon desktop tank but the light bulb seems to be going out. Rather than the bright white light that It had before, it's a pale yellow. On the blue setting it doesn't light the tank at all. Where can I get a replacement bulb?
