"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.

"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!

PERFECTO MANUFACTURING* APF75305-51_5400 First Impressions

"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.

Aqueon 13121 First Impressions

"No problems as of yet."

It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement. I am very happy I didn't list to the nay sayers! This is a perfect fit for a 75gallon aquarium I bought used. Also, as far as the plastic back piece being hard to fit on lid. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. NOW IN LATE APRIL, TWO OF THE THREE LED GROUPS ARE OUT.

"It just fits."

I bought this after the marine-land LED lid failed on me. Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler. I used the extra space to run the heater cable, but still had to cut for my filter. It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12.

Deep Blue Professional 894273 First Impressions

"Fit my tank perfectly."

You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. Some of the reviews I read were quite unclear. It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit.

"The light is very bright."

So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. Sitting on the couch you can barely tell there's a hood on the tank. Then he texted me to let me know when my order was shipped. Had a small issue with the handles. This is a perfect fit for a 75gallon aquarium I bought used. I'm so glad I finally ordered this top for my fish tank.

"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. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected.

"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.

"Maybe easier to cut."

Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic. Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium. I bought this tank hood and I have never been happier. I bought this after the marine-land LED lid failed on me. I went through many reviews before buying this lid.

"Im so happy and in love."

Words cannot explain how much I adore this! I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had. Picture shows the one I did receive. I previously had a tank hood that took the long florescent bulbs. Aquariums are less standard than you might think. If you measure your openings carefully, it will fit. It installed easily and looks great.

"This hood is excellent."

Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. It came with 8 hooks, but I only needed the 2. Then he texted me to let me know when my order was shipped. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Don't know about their longevity though. Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked!

"It was quite junk."

Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible. Purchased this for my 29 gallon Tetra Open Glass Tank. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. I am quite happy with the product otherwise. The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass.

"Hey, they made it!"

It installed easily and looks great. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. I'm really happy with how this turned out.

"High quality."

I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit. We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first. Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars. It has a feeding hole and holes for the cables and filter. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. It looks sooooooo much nicer than the bulky old black top I had.

"It fits any 75 gallon."

My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. Don't know about their longevity though. It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic.

"This will help immensely!"

It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. Shipping was a little slow but hey it's free and it came intact! I went through many reviews before buying this lid. I would order this again in a heartbeat. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing.

Don't know about their longevity though. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides.
