Unfortunately, this item has been discontinued.
The Aquael Classic 40 Bow Aquarium Kit has a capacity of 20 litres. It is a complete set with 1x11W ecolight, internal filter and 25W heater. The cover has been manufactured in injection moulding technology providing stiffness, durability and a solid look. The usage of electronic lighting components eliminates the effect of heating the water in the tank, ensures fluent operation of the fluorescent lamps (eliminates the effect of flickering) and extends the time of their operation. This IP67 lighting is carefully situated in the hood. With a hinged feeding hatch to make looking after your fish easy. Dimensions: W40xD25xH25cm

Water quality and water changes are of utmost importance for the livelihood of your fish, please ensure your pet has enough space for living and exercising by taking a look at Pet Planets important Fish Tank Sizing advice.

    The manufacturer of this fish tank highly recommends purchasing the tank alongside an appropriate, purpose-built fish tank stand/cabinet, with a top surface of equal or larger size to the bottom of the fish tank. The tank should not overhang the edge of the stand/ cabinet. In the event of damage occurring as a result of placing this tank on a surface other than an appropriate fish tank stand/ cabinet, the warranty on the fish tank will be invalid.

    excellent aquarium ready to set up with all extras but found the filter a bit fiddly and would have preferred a 3 stage filter
    Perfect for a Betta Splenden posted on 29/05/2014 by Mr B
    I recently decided i needed another tank in my life and a cute little Veil Tail betta I purchased the Aquael Classic 40 Bow Aquarium a simple little 20 litre tank at a fantastic price Search around you wont find one cheaper than PetPlanet Delivery was fast and the tank was well protected in copious amounts of Bubble wrap and extra boxes Now for a small review of the tank and set up itself Youre pretty limited as to what fish you can put in a tank as small as 20 litres seriously if you want a shoal of fish buy something bigger for my needs and the needs of a Betta Splenden this tank is perfect well made the silicone is very neat and tidy the general look of the tank is great and really does look like it costs double the price If you are looking to keep live plants in your tank id suggest buying an upgraded lighting set up or new daylight bulb The standard bulb is a regular incandescant 11 watt energy saving bulb and can appear a little garish and white The filter is perfect for a Betta fish the intake isnt very strong so regular gravel vacums are recomended however as Betta fish dont like a strong current the filter works a treat and comes with a variable flow The heater works well and can be adjusted i will say that to keep my tank at a steady 26c i need to set the heater to 28c but this could be down to varying factors such as room tempature etc All in all id recomend this tank to anyone looking to keep a Betta fish shrimp snails and the like if you want something more active or a large group of fish Bigger is Better
