Aquarium Marina 360 -- Our Review
Pros – This tank is beautiful, and will be a show piece – visible from all angles. The LED lighting adds to the overall glamour of the aquarium. In addition to the looks, the aquarium’s top is completely removable, which makes maintenance and cleaning very easy. The setup is also very simple, basically add tank water, pop the pump in, and turn it on! Great for homes and offices.
Cons – This tank sacrifices functionality for the overall look / design. The tank is very small, and most fish experts would tell you that it is unsuitable, even for a Betta. I think it would be okay for the smaller fish species, like Tetras. The only other downside to this tank is that accessories aren’t included; not even gravel / sand. You’ll want to make sure you purchase tank accessories to go with the kit, otherwise you’ll have a very bland aquarium.

Here’s a great YouTube video that will give you an idea on what the Marina 360 Aquarium looks like in action:
Overall – The Marina 360 Aquarium is a small but nonetheless, good tank that solves one of the more common fish tank issues; cord management. It is one of a select few that manages to hide the cabling, and allows the aquarium to be visible from any angle. I think it would be a great tank for any water horticulture, or small fish species. Unfortunately, I would not suggest this aquarium for anything other than plants and VERY small fish.
Do you have any experience with this tank? Good or bad, I’d love to hear about it. Just use the comment box below to leave your feedback. Until next time! If you are looking for other smaller tanks, there are others, such as the Elive Aquaduo 3.
