"My tank looks new!"

You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. The design is very low profile which I like a lot. I love it love it love it, and my fish are now happy! VERY BAD POLICY OF THE MANUFACTURER. VERY BAD POLICY OF THE MANUFACTURER. They fit perfectly on my tank, pretty thick glass& the handles attach easily. Lights are bright and makes my tank look really neat.

BASE WAVE Final Thoughts

"Very happy!"

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!

2. 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.

"Lights up my 5."

I have an Aqueon QuietFlow 30 and it fit just fine. Despite other reviews, this hood did fit my 55 gallon aquarium perfectly. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin. Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice.

3. Pack of 4 Stainless Steel Aquarium Fish Tank Glass Cover Clip Support Holder for Protecting(6mm)

User Ratings: 52

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.

Aqueon 13148 First Impressions

"The fit, the look."

With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! I have a hanging filter across the back on one side. Also, as far as the plastic back piece being hard to fit on lid. The instructions are good, I suggesting following them. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. We got an old reptile tank that someone was using as a fishtank.

"One more thing."

It looks sooooooo much nicer than the bulky old black top I had. I decided to introduce two Black Oscars into my tank. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. They didnt cut me but they did have a painful feel to them. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly. New handles work amazing as expected and my tank looks great. The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass.

UNITED PET GROUP - NOBLESVILLE First Impressions

"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.

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.

"Oh, they're good."

Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP! All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase. 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 was chaos."

I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. Also, received a week earlier than scheduled date. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. The design is very low profile which I like a lot.

"The year was 2019."

I absolutly love the product and the people. You also have a second extender to make it bigger for bigger tanks. It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed. They dont have any borders on them to make handling easier. I previously had a tank hood that took the long florescent bulbs. I'm so glad I finally ordered this top for my fish tank.

"They were mean."

Even at petco that sold me the tank. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. ITS UP TO YOU TO GET YOUR MEASURMENTS RIGHT. I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together.

"I have a happy fish now."

Very shortly after I placed my order, I got a call from the seller. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. So far very pleased with my purchase. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium.

"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.

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.
