No, not at all. I will be glad to help you out. =)
I LOVE the 2.6 topfin tanks. the lighting works well for the small tank for low lighted plants even but if you want plants that need more light you can always buy a different light for it. I have no issues with it, but I think it comes with a filter. It's too large for the tank so I just use a small sponge filter or no filter at all. The tank works great for the smaller bettas but not so much for a giant betta. I hope this helps.
