"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.

  • On a similar note, a cover will help foreign objects from falling into the aquarium. If there are young children or pets in your household, this could be a very important consideration. Same thing if you keep any supplies above the tank.
  • A cover reduces evaporation, which means you will not lose water as quickly. This can be pretty noticeable in warm water systems. Evaporation can also leave mineral deposits behind.

Blue Spotted AM34813 Final Thoughts

"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.

"I guess 2 spares."

Also, received a week earlier than scheduled date. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! I bought this for my 55 gallon tank that has no divider, thinking it would work. Don't know about their longevity though.

"The year was 2019."

We got an old reptile tank that someone was using as a fishtank. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly. Had a small issue with the handles. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. You also have a second extender to make it bigger for bigger tanks. It is bright, easy to use, and fits my 20 gallon aquarium perfect.

"So far they're sticking."

Had several cutouts to fit different size filters, heaters, etc. You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong. I am very happy I didn't list to the nay sayers! I would order this again in a heartbeat.

"So, I bought it."

It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP! Aquariums are less standard than you might think. I am very happy I didn't list to the nay sayers! They fit perfectly on my tank, pretty thick glass& the handles attach easily. They didnt cut me but they did have a painful feel to them. It installed easily and looks great.

"My other one is clear."

I would order this again in a heartbeat. I have an Aqueon QuietFlow 30 and it fit just fine. We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first. Long story short, I got rid of Dolce and Gabbana. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! He introduced himself and then confirmed my order. I bought this tank hood and I have never been happier.

Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12. I'm so glad I finally ordered this top for my fish tank.

"My tank looks new!"

People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs. IF YOU BUY THIS HOOD BE SURE TO SEAL WITH SILICON WHERE WIRES GO TO INTO LIGHT GROUP. New handles work amazing as expected and my tank looks great. I am very happy with this purchase! OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is.

I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin. VERY BAD POLICY OF THE MANUFACTURER. Words cannot explain how much I adore this!

It looks sooooooo much nicer than the bulky old black top I had. I love it love it love it, and my fish are now happy! The company was super fast with their shipping and really great customer service. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. WE are very happy with these glass covers. It was a hair too narrow across and way too deep.

"It was an excellent buy."

I thought of putting some hot silicone to prevent this, but never got to do it. Sitting on the couch you can barely tell there's a hood on the tank. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. The space in the back fits my heater and filter perfectly. NOW IN LATE APRIL, TWO OF THE THREE LED GROUPS ARE OUT.

"Let's lots of light in."

As a short individual I did find the edges a little sharp. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium. The design is very low profile which I like a lot. I ordered this canopy for my planted tank to cut down on evaporation. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! I have a hanging filter across the back on one side.
