Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Hartz Aquarium Hoods

1. Hartz Aquarium Reflector

Hartz First Impressions

"I guess 2 spares."

I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. Don't know about their longevity though. However the first one came with one sides of the glass was broken. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. They didnt cut me but they did have a painful feel to them. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. I love it love it love it, and my fish are now happy!

Hartz Final Thoughts

"Rounded off."

They didnt cut me but they did have a painful feel to them. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. Long story short, I got rid of Dolce and Gabbana. OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. Very shortly after I placed my order, I got a call from the seller. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly.

2. Perfecto Manufacturing Recessed Full Fluorescent Light Hood Black 48 Inch X 12 Inch

Perfecto First Impressions

"Otherwise, thanks!"

Despite other reviews, this hood did fit my 55 gallon aquarium perfectly. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. Purchased this for my 29 gallon Tetra Open Glass Tank. Shipping was a little slow but hey it's free and it came intact! You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. I bought this tank hood and I have never been happier. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together.

"Thanks a lot."

It looks sooooooo much nicer than the bulky old black top I had. I love it love it love it, and my fish are now happy! 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.

3. inTank Filtration Cover for Innovative Marine Fusion 30L and Fusion Pro 30L

inTank First Impressions

"They are grey."

It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. Just be careful when doing so cause the black plastic seems a little fragile. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. Easy to set up, Very good illumination. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly.

"They were mean."

I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together. Had a small issue with the handles. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP!

"So that's also a plus."

The hooks for the back were an added bonus. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. I absolutly love the product and the people. Also, received a week earlier than scheduled date. Lights are bright and makes my tank look really neat. I previously had a tank hood that took the long florescent bulbs. Very shortly after I placed my order, I got a call from the seller.

"Let's lots of light in."

The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. It comes with a fold that you can cut off if you want.

"Love this canopy."

I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. I ordered this canopy for my planted tank to cut down on evaporation. The light provided is a lot better compared the the marine-land LED. It's a little difficult to put on but it does snatch into place. ITS UP TO YOU TO GET YOUR MEASURMENTS RIGHT. It has a feeding hole and holes for the cables and filter. Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible.

"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.

"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 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.

You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit. Even at petco that sold me the tank. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong. Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids. We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first.

Also, as far as the plastic back piece being hard to fit on lid. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is.
