PetSmart Marineland Half Moon 10 Gallon Fish Aquarium Review + Giveaway

I've never met a child that wasn't fascinated by fish. Come to think of it, I've never met an adult that didn't enjoy watching fish. We have been meaning to get a fish tank for the kids and were thrilled when PetSmart sent us their Marineland Half Moon 10 Gallon Fish Aquarium.



This unique, half round shaped aquarium allows you to view your fish from any angle without interruptions from seams. The curved shape minimizes the view of equipment so only your fish and beautiful décor are highlighted.

Marineland has partnered with Tetra® to include one of their most popular power filters, the Whisper® 10i In-Tank Filter. The filter fits inside the aquarium to minimize the visual impact of equipment on this distinctively shaped tank. The Whisper 10i includes mechanical, chemical, and biological filtration for a healthy environment.



Includes:
- 180 degree Seamless View Aquarium (17.75”W x 11”d x 17”h)
- Whisper Filtration
- Submersible Heater
- LED Light
- Medium size Tetra Bio-Bag Fliter Cartidge
- Low-Voltage Power Adaptor
- Acrylic Lid with Feeding hole
- Complete Aquarium Set-Up Guide

The instructions are very easy to understand and tell you step by step how to set everything up. They encourage you to set the tank up and let it run 24 hours before adding fish to it. You'll need to purchase the rocks and greenery before filling with water. Having the tank up and having to wait to go get fish was hard for Evan, but he was so excited when we finally got to go to PetSmart to pick out the fish.

Sure, the selection of fish was fantastic, but I was most impressed with the knowledgeable staff. I haven't owned fish since I was a little girl and needed their advise on everything. They showed me which fish I should go with for the tank we had(which was a ton to choose from), what food we should get, how many plants, and then gave us a rundown on basic care. After 30 minutes or so of talking to them, we decided to go with tropical fish since the tank has a heater. We pointed Evan in the right direction and let him pick out his 3 fish.

We also let Evan pick out another structure to put inside of the tank. Again, there was plenty to choose from.

I knew our kids would love it, but I completely underestimated the amount of time that they would spend in front of that glass. They are completely fascinated by our fish and Evan runs down to see them as soon as he wakes up now. I had some issues with them wanting to put other things in the tank(*cough* raisins *cough*), so we moved it to a higher location where the kids could still easily see it, but the fish would be more safe.

I would recommend this tank to absolutely anyone. It is very appealing and is large, but not too large.  It is extremely low maintenance and fun for kids and adults alike!  Visit PetSmart to learn more and to view all of the other products in their Fish section.
