See IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS section before operating this unit. Completely set up GloFish Aquarium Kit before plugging air pump and light in. 1. Remove all parts from package carefully, place them on a table for easy assembly2. Placement of the GloFish Aquarium Kit is important. Do not set up the aquarium in front of a window or room that receives large amounts of direct sunlight since unwanted algae may grow. Algae utilizes sunlight as an energy source and heavy growths of unsightly algae can occur and cover rocks, decorations and the walls of the aquarium3. Usually an inside wall away from windows, heat vents and fireplaces is the best location to place the aquarium. Keep it away from airborne contaminants such as furniture polish, cigarette smoke, insect sprays, cooking aromas and spray pain. These fumes can enter the aquarium and harm your fish4. Place the GloFish Aquarium Kit on a level, strong surface that is able to support the weight of the assembled aquarium and cannot be damaged from water. Place the aquarium next to an electrical outlet to provide power for the light and pump. 5. Install the Mini-Might Power filter as shown in the below instructions. 6. Thoroughly rinse the gravel or substrate with freshwater. After rinsing gravel, place it on the bottom of the GloFish Aquarium Kit and spread it out evenly. Add any decorations you are going to use. 7. Fill the GloFish Aquarium Kit with water to within one inch of the top. Do not overfill since spillage may occur. Add a tap water conditioner to the aquarium to remove any harmful chemicals from the tap water such as Chlorine, Chloramine and Ammonia. Run the aquarium 24 to 48 hours and test the water before adding fish8. Place the hood on top of the tank and make sure it is seated fully onto the top of the GloFish Aquarium Kit. 9. Plug in the Transformer's small plug on the end of the cord into the back of the LED light unit and then plug the Transformer into a standard 110 volt wall socket. Use of a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) is always recommended when using electrical appliances around water. 10. You can turn on and change the LED lights by pushing the push button switch on top of the LED light unit. DO NOT LEAVE RUNNING CONTINUOUSLY AS THIS WILL LESSEN THE LIFE SPAN OF THE LEDs. DO NOT OVERCROWD, we recommend only one inch of fish per gallon of water.
Before installation, remove the Mini-Might filter from the box and uncoil the cord. Remove the adjustable hook from the filter pack pocket and attach it by rotating the hook 90° from the body and aligning one of the adjustment holes with the mating cleat. After insertion with the cleat, rotate the hook back 90° to vertical. Adjust the hook height using one of the 3 holes so that the OPTIMUM WATER LEVEL line on the housing is even with the filled water level in the tank.
