"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.

3. 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.

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.

"The fit, the look."

Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium. The instructions are good, I suggesting following them. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. WE are very happy with these glass covers. The design is very low profile which I like a lot. I bought this for my 55 gallon tank that has no divider, thinking it would work.

Fdit First Impressions

"No problems as of yet."

Had several cutouts to fit different size filters, heaters, etc. We got an old reptile tank that someone was using as a fishtank. They fit perfectly on my tank, pretty thick glass& the handles attach easily. THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT LIGHTS AVAILABLE. Hoods work great and light is bright. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean.

"I would buy again."

It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic. Just be careful when doing so cause the black plastic seems a little fragile. It was a hair too narrow across and way too deep. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. Hoods work great and light is bright. Long story short, I got rid of Dolce and Gabbana.

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.

Easy to set up, Very good illumination. FACTORY WATERPROOFING IS INADEQUATE. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS.

The light provided is a lot better compared the the marine-land LED. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off.

Overall, very happy with this canopy set and you definitely can't beat the price.

"The power cord is nice."

Had a small issue with the handles. I absolutly love the product and the people. The light provided is a lot better compared the the marine-land LED. The company was super fast with their shipping and really great customer service. It's a little difficult to put on but it does snatch into place. Don't know about their longevity though. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth.

Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase. WE are very happy with these glass covers. I am quite happy with the product otherwise. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12. Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids. Shipping was a little slow but hey it's free and it came intact!
