Wow, this is really a fabulous gift idea for the holidays! For a few months, an individual in our family has been talking about getting a Betta Fish. So when given the opportunity to review a NoClean Aquarium, I knew this would be a perfect gift!
I know what you're thinking-NoClean Aquariums-no way! Right? You're thinking there's no way to have an aquarium that doesn't require cleaning. Well, I'm here to tell you that you're wrong! The NoClean Aquarium really is! I received my NoClean and it took only about 4 minutes to get it set up and ready to use. Basically, you're just placing a glass tube in the aquarium, and doing a couple other minor adjustments. It also come with rocks to place in the bottom, for a nice decorative touch. I also received the white LED light, which sits atop the aquarium lid, and adds a wonderful brilliance to the aquarium.
After getting the aquarium set up, we added a male and female Betta Fish. The kids especially love watching the fish, and the aquarium is a great size for use just about anywhere. The real test, though, came a couple days later when we tried the water filtration system. Basically, to clean the NoClean Aquarium, simply place a container under the spigot, and pour fresh, clean water into the tank. We were all a little doubtful of how it would really work, but these were soon proved wrong. It works beautifully! The dirty water is flushed out to be disposed of easily, and the tank remains full of clean, clear water! This is simply astounding! Perfect for anyone who wants a low-maintenance aquarium. Honestly, I can not believe how great this works, and how easy it is to keep a clean fish tank now. Gone are the days of tedious cleaning, because with the NoClean, it's as simple as pouring in new water! You just can't beat that!
Here's a video so you can see the NoClean in action:
The only downside we have had-and it's not even with the aquarium-is that the LED light batteries die after only a few days of use. So, we're switching over to rechargeable batteries, and that problem will be solved as well. And, while the LED light is optional, it really does look great, so we want to keep using it :)
