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.

Innovative Marine 7908 First Impressions

"The power cord is nice."

My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. Had a small issue with the handles. Which living in the countryside makes these a hard to find item. OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful. I am quite happy with the product otherwise.

Innovative Marine 7908 Final Thoughts

"Let's talk about LEDs."

The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS. Just buy the correct ones and you'll be fine. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs. So far very pleased with my purchase.

H2Pro 30GT First Impressions

"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.

Supa S0270 First Impressions

"No problems as of yet."

The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler. Also, received a week earlier than scheduled date. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin.

Supa S0270 Final Thoughts

"Fits perfectly."

I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly. They dont have any borders on them to make handling easier. You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12. All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase.

"The fit, the look."

The light provided is a lot better compared the the marine-land LED. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND EXCELLENT PRODUCT! Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars.

Ioffersuper Final Thoughts

"This was it."

I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. If you measure your openings carefully, it will fit. Had a small issue with the handles. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS. Overall, very happy with this canopy set and you definitely can't beat the price.

"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.

"I love it!"

Sitting on the couch you can barely tell there's a hood on the tank. THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT LIGHTS AVAILABLE. I am very happy with this purchase! Words cannot explain how much I adore this! When I first picked up the package, it was really light. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank.

"3 switch positions."

I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs. I thought of putting some hot silicone to prevent this, but never got to do it. THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT LIGHTS AVAILABLE. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12.

8. 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.

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.
