Built-in (hidden) 3-stage filtration system with adjustable flow rate
Sliding glass canopy for easy access
Curved corners for a seamless face-on design
The Marineland LED Portrait is possibly our favorite rimless 5 gallon aquarium on the market. It’s the most space-saving design, due to the upright construction with minimal footprint. It comes with all the basics, from a LED light that has white and moonlight settings to a built-in back panel filtration system to keep your water healthy and reduce maintenance. This kit is ideal for those looking to have fish that need a gentle current (such as a betta) as the flow nozzle can be turned down. Incredible value for the price (other tanks like this often run for double the cost).

Built with high-clarity glass, this tank is a solid piece that will enhance any living space or office. Along with being frameless, the front panel is entirely seamless thanks to the elegant curved corners. This enhances the aquarium’s durability and aesthetic appeal. It comes with a closed cell foam mat to place under the tank for leveling and protection of the surface beneath. An optional hinged lid is included that can be used to prevent evaporation or fish from jumping out. It also comes with a light and an internal power filter.
This kit comes with an internal power filter and a light, both of which many fishkeepers opt to replace for better quality equipment. The price for the tank alone is such a good deal that the included gear can be seen as “freebies.”
