"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.

"My tank looks new!"

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. IF YOU BUY THIS HOOD BE SURE TO SEAL WITH SILICON WHERE WIRES GO TO INTO LIGHT GROUP. New handles work amazing as expected and my tank looks great. I am very happy with this purchase! OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is.

"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!

"The quality is 100% good."

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. Fit perfectly on my aqueon 10 gallon tank and was really easy to put together. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is.

"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.

inTank Final Thoughts

"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.

"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.

inTank WB20CV First Impressions

"So far they're sticking."

They dont have any borders on them to make handling easier. I thought of putting some hot silicone to prevent this, but never got to do it. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. The instructions are good, I suggesting following them. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides.

"The fit, the look."

Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium. The instructions are good, I suggesting following them. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. WE are very happy with these glass covers. The design is very low profile which I like a lot. I bought this for my 55 gallon tank that has no divider, thinking it would work.

Aqueon First Impressions

"I have a standard 10 gal."

However the first one came with one sides of the glass was broken. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids. It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. I have a 50 gallon tank with middle bar. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong.

Aqueon Final Thoughts

"Love this canopy."

I'm so glad I finally ordered this top for my fish tank. Hinge lets light through--a plus for my planted tank. Even at petco that sold me the tank. It's a little difficult to put on but it does snatch into place. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. VERY BAD POLICY OF THE MANUFACTURER. The hood sits on plastic hinges that clip to the back of your tank.

"The light was included."

Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids. Aquariums are less standard than you might think. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy. I'm really happy with how this turned out.

"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.

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.
