Description

title: Marineland Portrait Glass LED Aquarium Kit, 5 Gallons, Hidden Filtration

The Marineland 5 Gallon Portrait Kit is a five gallon curved glass aquarium. The kit includes Marineland's 3-stage hidden filtration with a Rite-Size Z Cartridge, Marineland Bio-Foam, and an adjustable flow filter pump. The bright white and blue energy-efficient LED light is hinged for easy access to the tank, and features a 3-way switch to toggle between white and blue, off, and blue-only settings. The white LEDs create a shimmering light in the water that mimic the underwater effect of sunlight, and the blue LEDs produce a relaxing moonlight glow. Also included is a base and a unique glass canopy that slides to the back of the aquarium for easy feeding and water care dosing. This easy-to-assemble kit is beautifully designed and easy to maintain.

FAQs:

Can I buy this for my Betta fish?

This tank is an excellent choice for bettas, thanks for asking! The pump is fully adjustable, down to 35 gph, and the size is perfect for a betta fish. You can place a heater in the front portion of course, and it is easy to maintain.

What is the difference between this tank and the Marineland Contour?

I called Marineland and they told me the only difference between the Portrait 5 gallon and the Contour 5 gallon is in the curvature of the lighting system. The lights themselves are identical (9 white LEDs and 6 blue LEDs). They also advised me that they are no longer making the Contour 5 gallon because except for the minor difference in the lighting structure they are exactly the same tank with the same filtration components. FWIW, I bought the 5 gallon Portrait and am very happy with it.

Is the pump and cord supposed to be submerged in water behind the tank in the space provided? Electrical cord and water is a bit nerve-wrecking.

The cords are not designed to be submersible. Unless they have extra coating like some fish tank appliances have extra thick plastic just enough to reach above water. If that's not there then it is a regular power cord and any break in the normal old plastic will conduct 120 volts to whomever is grounded. Most fish tank appliances are designed to sit at the very top where the cord is above water.

How tall is it without the base?

14" without the light & 16" with the light...base about 1-1/8" beyond that.
