"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.

"Otherwise, thanks!"

Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Had a small issue with the handles. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank.

"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. Two peel and stick plastic lift pulls are provided.

"Let's talk about LEDs."

The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS. Just buy the correct ones and you'll be fine. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs. So far very pleased with my purchase.

"It is just what I wanted."

When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. Don't know about their longevity though. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin. Sitting on the couch you can barely tell there's a hood on the tank. It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly. I have a 50 gallon tank with middle bar.

"I'm very pleased."

The hooks for the back were an added bonus. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. NOW IN LATE APRIL, TWO OF THE THREE LED GROUPS ARE OUT. I would order this again in a heartbeat. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. Which living in the countryside makes these a hard to find item.

"I have a standard 10 gal."

I absolutly love the product and the people. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! Had a small issue with the handles. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! Shipping was a little slow but hey it's free and it came intact!

"Well done, sellers!"

Long story short, I got rid of Dolce and Gabbana. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth.

"This will help immensely!"

THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT LIGHTS AVAILABLE. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. I decided to introduce two Black Oscars into my tank. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP!

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!

"So far they're sticking."

They dont have any borders on them to make handling easier. I thought of putting some hot silicone to prevent this, but never got to do it. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. The instructions are good, I suggesting following them. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides.
