This fountain is so beautiful. I have been looking for a tabletop one for years but mostly just found cheap plastic ones, so I was excited to find this in my local store. The only downside was that there were no directions on how to set it up. The pump info had precautions and had a picture of how you would have it for an aquarium, but nothing in either box on how to set this up. I figured it out after I realized I didn't notice there was a tube in the pump box. So, if you're thinking of sending this as a gift for someone who may get confused or can't figure it out, I suggest buying one with directions though it's sooo pretty.
