"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.

"Well done."

The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together. Even at petco that sold me the tank. Then he texted me to let me know when my order was shipped. Two peel and stick plastic lift pulls are provided. You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. Lights are bright and makes my tank look really neat. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND.

"Absolutely perfect!"

I love it love it love it, and my fish are now happy! I went through many reviews before buying this lid. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong. The space in the back fits my heater and filter perfectly. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. I absolutly love the product and the people. Some of the reviews I read were quite unclear.

"It fits any 75 gallon."

It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. I bought this for my 55 gallon tank that has no divider, thinking it would work. All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase. With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. Picture shows the one I did receive. It comes with a fold that you can cut off if you want.

"Thanks a lot."

It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. I highly recommend this product from THIS seller. Fit perfectly on my aqueon 10 gallon tank and was really easy to put together. I am very happy I didn't list to the nay sayers! It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly. He introduced himself and then confirmed my order. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12.

"Well done."

Despite other reviews, this hood did fit my 55 gallon aquarium perfectly. The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy. I went through many reviews before buying this lid. I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want.

You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit. Even at petco that sold me the tank. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong. Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids. We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first.

Also, as far as the plastic back piece being hard to fit on lid. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed. I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove.

"It was quite junk."

EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP! 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. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement. Despite other reviews, this hood did fit my 55 gallon aquarium perfectly.

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!

I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. It came with 8 hooks, but I only needed the 2.
