"Let's lots of light in."

The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. It comes with a fold that you can cut off if you want. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is.

H2Pro 24GT Final Thoughts

"Love this canopy."

I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. I ordered this canopy for my planted tank to cut down on evaporation. The light provided is a lot better compared the the marine-land LED. It's a little difficult to put on but it does snatch into place. ITS UP TO YOU TO GET YOUR MEASURMENTS RIGHT. It has a feeding hole and holes for the cables and filter. Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible.

"No gaps, no issues."

The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. FACTORY WATERPROOFING IS INADEQUATE. I am very happy I didn't list to the nay sayers! My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank.

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.

"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.

"It was quite junk."

EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND EXCELLENT PRODUCT! If you measure your openings carefully, it will fit. I bought this after the marine-land LED lid failed on me. Lights are bright and makes my tank look really neat. They dont have any borders on them to make handling easier. Don't know about their longevity though. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle.

"Hopefully it holds up."

I thought of putting some hot silicone to prevent this, but never got to do it. 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. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. I used the extra space to run the heater cable, but still had to cut for my filter. Had a small issue with the handles.

VERY BAD POLICY OF THE MANUFACTURER. We got an old reptile tank that someone was using as a fishtank. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. I used the extra space to run the heater cable, but still had to cut for my filter. Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler. Hoods work great and light is bright. The hooks for the back were an added bonus.

"NEW RATING TWO STARS."

It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. Purchased this for my 29 gallon Tetra Open Glass Tank. Then he texted me to let me know when my order was shipped. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together. They fit my 75 gallon aqueon fish tank like a glove. I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND EXCELLENT PRODUCT!

"It fits any 75 gallon."

Just buy the correct ones and you'll be fine. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. Even at petco that sold me the tank. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. FACTORY WATERPROOFING IS INADEQUATE.

"This hood is excellent."

I am quite happy with the product otherwise. I have a hanging filter across the back on one side. They fit perfectly on my tank, pretty thick glass& the handles attach easily. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. Overall, very happy with this canopy set and you definitely can't beat the price. Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks.
