"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.

Deep Blue Professional 894273 Final Thoughts

"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.

"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.

3. inTank Filtration Cover for Innovataive Marine Fusion 20 and Lagoon 25

inTank IM20CV First Impressions

"The light was included."

I ordered this canopy for my planted tank to cut down on evaporation. IF YOU BUY THIS HOOD BE SURE TO SEAL WITH SILICON WHERE WIRES GO TO INTO LIGHT GROUP. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. I'm really happy with how this turned out. Some of the reviews I read were quite unclear. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly. I previously had a tank hood that took the long florescent bulbs.

inTank IM20CV Final Thoughts

"Everything."

My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. I almost thought they shipped me the wrong item haha. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium. Only odd thing is that the plastic back is not full width. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid.

Innovative Marine First Impressions

"I'm very pleased."

The hooks for the back were an added bonus. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. NOW IN LATE APRIL, TWO OF THE THREE LED GROUPS ARE OUT. I would order this again in a heartbeat. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. Which living in the countryside makes these a hard to find item.

Innovative Marine Final Thoughts

"I have a standard 10 gal."

I absolutly love the product and the people. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! Had a small issue with the handles. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! Shipping was a little slow but hey it's free and it came intact!

"Nice, thick glass."

My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy. We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first. I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit. He introduced himself and then confirmed my order. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS.

"I love it!"

As a short individual I did find the edges a little sharp. Which living in the countryside makes these a hard to find item. Aquariums are less standard than you might think. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. I have a hanging filter across the back on one side. The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy.

"I am so proud."

That tank hood went bad after only a year. It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. I'm really happy with how this turned out. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. Had a small issue with the handles. I have a hanging filter across the back on one side.

"The packaging is amazing."

It's a little difficult to put on but it does snatch into place. That tank hood went bad after only a year. Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars. This is a perfect fit for a 75gallon aquarium I bought used. I am quite happy with the product otherwise. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs. Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler.

"The lid looks very nice."

Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. The space in the back fits my heater and filter perfectly. Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP! We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first. Some of the reviews I read were quite unclear. I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had.

Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked!

"This will help immensely!"

I have a hanging filter across the back on one side. Then he texted me to let me know when my order was shipped. THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT LIGHTS AVAILABLE. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. 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. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice.

Only odd thing is that the plastic back is not full width. I'm really happy with how this turned out. It installed easily and looks great. 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.
