Review of the Interpet Fish Pod 48 litre

Interpet Fish Pod 48 litre Review

Website: www.amazon.co.uk
Price I paid: £120 from my local aquarium
Price at Amazon: £89.95 (saving 25%)

I already own fairly large fish tank – the Juwel Vision 180, although the black wood version looks much cooler. Bought a number of years ago, and still going strong. The only trouble is it is quite hard to keep clean, and can take a couple of hours every 3 weeks to do properly.

My daughter was getting interested in looking after some fish too, so I looked into getting her a starter tank so she could take some responsibility for them. I figured if I just put the fish in my tank, then they would soon be forgotten. But if they were in her tank, then she might spend some time feeding, cleaning and helping to change the water.

When I was young, I always won a goldfish from the local fair, would have it for a week, and then find it was dead. It was a traumatic experience as a young child to be flushing your dead fish down the loo, but that’s life I guess.

Anyway, I saw this fish tank and thought it would be perfect for putting a 3-4 goldfish into and get my daughter started. It is a complete aquarium, and my local supplier threw in a few decorations with it.

The curved design gives a sort of magnifying effect on the fish, so the tank as a whole looks larger than it actually is. One of the best features is the blue night light which is really relaxing at night.

A word of warning though, as I have seen it in other reviews, is you should be careful opening any online deliveries in case it contains any broken glass.


Good value starter tank.
Comes with everything you need.
Fantastic curved design.
Lovely blue night light


I know I said it last time – cheaper at Amazon, but then I like supporting my local businesses!

Also with items containing glass, I like to check the item before taking it rather than having to return an item with broken glass in it.


The Interpet Fish Pod 48 litre aquarium is a great starter tank for adults or children alike.
