"It was chaos."

I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. Also, received a week earlier than scheduled date. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. The design is very low profile which I like a lot.

All Glass Aquariums 15905216029 Final Thoughts

"The year was 2019."

I absolutly love the product and the people. You also have a second extender to make it bigger for bigger tanks. It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed. They dont have any borders on them to make handling easier. I previously had a tank hood that took the long florescent bulbs. I'm so glad I finally ordered this top for my fish tank.

"I guess 2 spares."

I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. Don't know about their longevity though. However the first one came with one sides of the glass was broken. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. They didnt cut me but they did have a painful feel to them. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. I love it love it love it, and my fish are now happy!

"Rounded off."

They didnt cut me but they did have a painful feel to them. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. Long story short, I got rid of Dolce and Gabbana. OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. Very shortly after I placed my order, I got a call from the seller. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly.

3. inTank Filtration Cover for Innovataive Marine Fusion 20 and Lagoon 25

inTank IM20CV First Impressions

"The light was included."

I ordered this canopy for my planted tank to cut down on evaporation. IF YOU BUY THIS HOOD BE SURE TO SEAL WITH SILICON WHERE WIRES GO TO INTO LIGHT GROUP. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. I'm really happy with how this turned out. Some of the reviews I read were quite unclear. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly. I previously had a tank hood that took the long florescent bulbs.

"Everything."

My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. I almost thought they shipped me the wrong item haha. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium. Only odd thing is that the plastic back is not full width. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid.

Aquarium Masters First Impressions

"It just fits."

It was a hair too narrow across and way too deep. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP! Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. I bought this tank hood and I have never been happier. It came with 8 hooks, but I only needed the 2. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement.

"Rounded off."

You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. Sitting on the couch you can barely tell there's a hood on the tank. I bought this for my 55 gallon tank that has no divider, thinking it would work. It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. I thought of putting some hot silicone to prevent this, but never got to do it. I am very happy with this purchase!

"The fit, the look."

With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! I have a hanging filter across the back on one side. Also, as far as the plastic back piece being hard to fit on lid. The instructions are good, I suggesting following them. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. We got an old reptile tank that someone was using as a fishtank.

"One more thing."

It looks sooooooo much nicer than the bulky old black top I had. I decided to introduce two Black Oscars into my tank. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. They didnt cut me but they did have a painful feel to them. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly. New handles work amazing as expected and my tank looks great. The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass.

"The fit, the look."

The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. 2 packages of 2 stick on handles for the lids were included. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. Hoods work great and light is bright.

"Naturally fit perfectly."

The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. You also have a second extender to make it bigger for bigger tanks. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle.

"So, I bought it."

You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit. Even at petco that sold me the tank. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong. Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids. We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first.

Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. I almost thought they shipped me the wrong item haha. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly.

"Its an interesting lid."

They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. I went through many reviews before buying this lid. I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. NOW IN LATE APRIL, TWO OF THE THREE LED GROUPS ARE OUT. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement.

ITS UP TO YOU TO GET YOUR MEASURMENTS RIGHT. Which can easily be fixed with tape. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. FACTORY WATERPROOFING IS INADEQUATE. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing.
