My first thought was a definite 5 star rating. However, mounting the tank means that you most likely plan to use it for awhile, years for that matter. The first light bulb went out a few months after it was mounted. It was a Christmas gift. Overstock sent us a completely new tank in order to switch the bulb. That bulb has since burned out. We shopped everywhere locally and can not find a replacement bulb. It is an unusual size. I contacted Overstock.com and they do not carry or can help with finding a replacement bulb. We mounted the tank in the clubroom. It is not used daily. If you are planning to mount the tank in a room where the light would be used frequently, realize that mostly likely within 1 year you will no longer be able to light it. Honestly, it is the light that makes it so beautiful. However, if the light is not important as I said the tank itself is very nice.
Tank arrived just as promised. Installation took awhile. If you do not have 2 studs exactly at 16 inches, it can be challenging. Once installed, the electrical components didn't work and the frame was cracked. I was immediately sent a replacement tank and Frame at no cost. The fish seem to love it!
I watched this aquarium for a long time before I purchased it. Waiting for the price to drop thought it droped more after I purchased it I still think it's worth it. What I really like is the fact it is mounted on the wall saving floor space. I love fish tanks but they can take up a lot of space and the maintaince can be crucial. Only being able to hold small fish and only a few is not a problem I'm not farming them to eat I just love having one. can't keep my eyes off it. I love overstock for different and unusual things. You go overstock
I absolutely love this tank! we hung it on the wall next to the kitchen table in our apartment and it is one of the first things my guests see when they come over. Everyone who has seen it loves it too! It required almost no assembly and I was able to hang it by myself with a drill, wall anchors and a level in 10 minutes. The maintenence is so low the hardest part is remembering to feed the fish, which I do. What a cool product! After having it installed now for 6 months the only problem we had was that the keypad stopped working, but no worries there either. Aquavista came to my aid and helped me to troubleshoot and replace the keypad, all in all quick and easy. Buy it, you'll love it too!
