"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!

"Well done, sellers!"

It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. Two peel and stick plastic lift pulls are provided. Had a small issue with the handles. Had a small issue with the handles.

Aqueon 13064 Final Thoughts

"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.

"Things change."

We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. It has a feeding hole and holes for the cables and filter. It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. I am very happy with this purchase! I went through many reviews before buying this lid. Two peel and stick plastic lift pulls are provided. I ordered this canopy for my planted tank to cut down on evaporation.

"It just fits."

Long story short, I got rid of Dolce and Gabbana. Very shortly after I placed my order, I got a call from the seller. They dont have any borders on them to make handling easier. FACTORY WATERPROOFING IS INADEQUATE. I have a Penn Plax 1200 filter on my 55 gallon tank. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars.

"The fit, the look."

The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. 2 packages of 2 stick on handles for the lids were included. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. Hoods work great and light is bright. Lights are bright and makes my tank look really neat. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement.

"Naturally fit perfectly."

The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. You also have a second extender to make it bigger for bigger tanks. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle.

"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.

"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.

Easy to set up, Very good illumination. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. I would order this again in a heartbeat. I'm really happy with how this turned out.

"No problems as of yet."

It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. Even at petco that sold me the tank. I'm really happy with how this turned out. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. I have a Penn Plax 1200 filter on my 55 gallon tank. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description.

"Nice touch."

Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! Easy to set up, Very good illumination. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly. Just be careful when doing so cause the black plastic seems a little fragile. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP!

"Hopefully it holds up."

It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly. Aquariums are less standard than you might think. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. Two peel and stick plastic lift pulls are provided. I have an Aqueon QuietFlow 30 and it fit just fine. I used the extra space to run the heater cable, but still had to cut for my filter.

"It was quite junk."

When I first picked up the package, it was really light. It was a hair too narrow across and way too deep. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed. Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars. Aquariums are less standard than you might think.

"I love it!"

I previously had a tank hood that took the long florescent bulbs. That tank hood went bad after only a year. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked!
