its great starter tank. I manged to house 2 platys, 6 guppies and 2 Cory catfish without any problem.
it can house many more to. it came with brilliant LED lighting which really gives great color to the rest of the tank fish and plants.
The heater and filter was also very good and it worked out great as its suction power was not luckily to strong as it would have damaged a long fined fish like my male guppies. the heater was also good and kept the water warm as it normally should be. the plants worked out well although some of the pants had been close to the filter had been a little damaged.
The tank would work out very well for some one who wants to house a lot of small fish like mollies, platys, guppies ,tetras, betas,barbs and others. But although a very large for a small fish it would not be able to house large fish like chichlids, oscars and large catfish.
But it could hold 1 or 2 goldfish if you are looking to go for a cold water tank. But if you are looking to get 1-3 or 4 large fish in the tank then they must have a max size of 12- 15 cm. this tank can be kept as an aggressive tank but that is your option. I hope this information has help you also and overall this tank is very good for a beginner. good luck :]
After a lot of looking bought from Mere park branch .Many thanks to the staff for helping out a complete novice .This is a great tank just the right size for the space I have set up but fish have to wait till after holiday but it looks good anyway. I may be new to the hobby but this is quality also bought a matching cabinet all at a good price
What a great small starter tank...it's got everything to get going from scratch for a 'new to the hobby' like me and I easily managed to put the lights onto a timer by following the video on line. Only hint of warning, the LED strip is fixed to thin fragile plastic and mine broke off in transit but Maidenhead exchanged the whole tank without quibble....Oh and my live plants are doing fine you've just got to have the LED's on for a good period of time....12 hours a day for mine.
Brilliant tank, Superb price, couldn't of asked for anything better
Brought this tank coz it was a bargain with all you need to start, filter,heater. Agree with the lighting part of the tank took me a while to figure out but with the lid open theres a box inside thats how i figured it out, absolutly brilliant for my needs. When down the route of small colourful fish coz the lighting does show the fish off brillianty im mezmerized for hours with it. 10/10 from me
Absolutely delighted with this tank it is fantastic and the price I got it for was great. Was hoping someone could tell me if the built in lights are suitable for live plants?
I bought this from maidenhead aquatics in christchurch,after careful consideration I finally got it,so glad I did it looks superb and the led lighting really brings out the colour of my fish.it is excellent value for money really pleased.also just like to say a big thank you to the staff at the christchurch branch for being so helpful when last weekend after Friday nights storms I had a power cut for a considerable amount of time and they were so helpful giving me great advice etc.so big thank you to maidenhead aquatics christchurch.superb.jerry.
Great little tank for the money, done a lot of running around before i settled on this one, and now i already want another bigger tank, this was for my daughters 6th birthday as this is what she asked for, she loves it, comes with all you need to get started except for water treatment, 2 year warranty with is twice as much as others i have seen that are similar in size but got £20 to £40 more, highly recomend this tank, great value for money
love the touch control LED lights, only downside is you cant put the lights on timer :(
Still you can have it all, great buy and one happy daughter, cant be bad can it
What can I say. Absolutely brilliant tank. I could be wrong but by using an online calculator, I discovered that the safety factor of this aquarium is about 7. As far as I am aware, the typical standard is 3.8. So that says a lot really. The seals are done very nicely, no bubbles or deformities anywhere. So right there I am happy. Also, the light is great. It has a touch sensor at the back. Turns on gradually so the fish don't become frightened. The pump is plenty powerful too and it comes with a good quality heater. A good, basic, well constructed aquarium, very good value for money and in my opinion, a better option than many other smaller kits that have more accessories. Highly recommended.
After looking around for months pondering where to start tropical fish keeping without too much financial commitment, I purchased one of these from the Peterborough Crowland store.
At 70 liter capacity it appears to be just the right size for my requirements. If I am able to keep fish safe and well in this size then upgrading to say the Juwell Vision 180 later on should not be a problem as I believe the larger the tank the easier it is to keep the water quality satisfactory. ( Greater buffering capacity for any errors )?
OK I haven't got it set up yet, but it looks superb and excellent value for money as I bought it on the last day of their sale at a price of £59.99. Has to be a bargain.
I need to add that the assistant at the store was very helpful and pointed out that some purchasers had difficulty in finding the on / off switch. He then showed me on the display model where the on / off switch was located and demonstrated the operation of same. Maybe all the stores will adopt this approach for this model to save any future confusion. I am sure I would have struggled.
Just got this tank for my birthday from the family, setting it up and looks great, have to say a BIG tank you!... for writing where the light switch wa s, I was baffled. ?. Absolutely agree should have a sticker on it or something, at times like this thank goodness for internet, enjoy your fish. ?..

Aqua Expert 70 is value for money but my issue is why must the light switch be a hidden one .It took ages for us to work it out, i had to come on here to see if other people had had the same problem .I then saw the note saying where the switch was , it isnt clearly marked at all in the instruction manual i went through it several times to no avail.If i hadnt come on here to see other comments i would be none the wiser. please make it clearer to people when selling this product . The sales person in maidenhead in peterborough switched it on at the wall so he didnt explain where the switch was we are not mind readers.
Bought this little tank last week as a new back up/quarantine tank for my main aquarium from my local Maidenhead store at Gatwick.
Easy to set up, up and running very quickly with internal filter and 100w heaterstat included.
The LEDs give a surprisingly high light level, and come on gradually using an electronic sensor switch. The only drawback is that you cannot attach the lighting to a timer as it is an electronic sensor switch, the timer will switch the LEDs off but will not switch them on, hence the 4 stars instead of 5.
Otherwise a great little tank, highly recommended.
