Cons

Poor Lighting – Past owners have reported that the lighting coverage isn’t very good which makes it hard to grow plants in the tank. If you’re a beginner, perhaps it’s something worth overlooking until you gain enough experience to grow live aquarium plants. Plus, you can always start with plastic plants first.
