The Maglife Clean Sweep Betta Tank is an excellent product for the always-growing ranks of folks who keep betta fish (Betta splendens). Using this aquarium and its NitraStrate pellets for the substrate makes keeping a betta very easy.

Clean Sweep

The Claims
Maglife claims that the Clean Sweep Betta Tank and NitraStrate substrate make keeping a betta easier than ever, and that their Sediment Removal System is an easy way to clean the aquarium and do a water change. In combination, they claim to have the best betta aquarium around.

The Test
I set up a Clean Sweep Betta Tank using the NitraStrate substrate, aged water from an existing aquarium and one of my male bettas. I used the Sediment Removal System about every week to 10 days to clean the aquarium, and I gave the betta fish food three times a week. The aquarium was set on top of a 300 gallon that is heated to about 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Results
I kept my Clean Sweep Betta Tank for two months. The aquarium always looked great, and the betta thrived. This product is cleverly designed and is an excellent home for a betta (or perhaps some little shrimp). The size is just right — small enough to not take up much space and large enough so the betta really has a home. Some folks will always preach that bettas need at least an X-gallon aquarium and that keeping them in a small container is cruel. This is definitely not true if that container is a Clean Sweep Betta Tank.

The Sediment Removal System consists of a clear plastic "sweeper" rod that goes up through the top of the aquarium, attractively wrapped with a plastic plant. The bottom of the rod stirs up the substrate as it is turned, and there is a small drain on the bottom of the aquarium. Turning the sweeper rod and letting out some of the water is the easiest and quickest way I have come across to clean and do a water change.

The NitraStrate substrate provides an excellent environment for the bacteria of the nitrogen cycle to get established. Using the sweeper rod and drain to do a water change does not harm those bacteria, so the environment for the betta remains constant.

I recommend the Clean Sweep Betta Tank for anyone who wants to keep a betta. When kept in an excellent home such as the Clean Sweep Betta Tank, your betta should still be kept in a warm place and only fed three times a week.
