"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!

Hartz Final Thoughts

"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.

H2Pro A48GT Final Thoughts

"The light was included."

Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids. Aquariums are less standard than you might think. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy. I'm really happy with how this turned out.

4. Top Quality Flourescent Deluxe Hood 36bf Hood Black

Central Garden & Pet - Aquatic First Impressions

"Lights up my 5."

ITS UP TO YOU TO GET YOUR MEASURMENTS RIGHT. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. Also, received a week earlier than scheduled date. The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. Hoods work great and light is bright. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement.

"Lights up my 5."

I have an Aqueon QuietFlow 30 and it fit just fine. Despite other reviews, this hood did fit my 55 gallon aquarium perfectly. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin. Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice.

However the first one came with one sides of the glass was broken. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids. It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. I have a 50 gallon tank with middle bar. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong.

"Love this canopy."

I'm so glad I finally ordered this top for my fish tank. Hinge lets light through--a plus for my planted tank. Even at petco that sold me the tank. It's a little difficult to put on but it does snatch into place. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. VERY BAD POLICY OF THE MANUFACTURER. The hood sits on plastic hinges that clip to the back of your tank.

"Nice, thick glass."

My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy. We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first. I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit. He introduced himself and then confirmed my order. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS.

7. H2Pro 16″ Glass Canopy 5.5 Gallon Aquarium Fish Tank (15.28 x 7.56 x 0.16in)

H2Pro 16GT First Impressions

"It was quite junk."

When I first picked up the package, it was really light. It was a hair too narrow across and way too deep. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed. Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars. Aquariums are less standard than you might think.

"I love it!"

I previously had a tank hood that took the long florescent bulbs. That tank hood went bad after only a year. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked!

"Very easy to assemble."

Only odd thing is that the plastic back is not full width. I'm really happy with how this turned out. It installed easily and looks great. NOW IN LATE APRIL, TWO OF THE THREE LED GROUPS ARE OUT. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. Also, as far as the plastic back piece being hard to fit on lid. Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids.

"High quality."

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. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed.

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.

It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. Even at petco that sold me the tank. I'm really happy with how this turned out. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. I have a Penn Plax 1200 filter on my 55 gallon tank. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do.
