"It was chaos."

I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. Also, received a week earlier than scheduled date. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. The design is very low profile which I like a lot.

"The year was 2019."

I absolutly love the product and the people. You also have a second extender to make it bigger for bigger tanks. It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed. They dont have any borders on them to make handling easier. I previously had a tank hood that took the long florescent bulbs. I'm so glad I finally ordered this top for my fish tank.

2. Zoo Med Laboratories INC Paludarium Hood Black 12 INCH (690862)

Zoo Med 690862 First Impressions

"The year was 2019."

I have a Penn Plax 1200 filter on my 55 gallon tank. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. Just buy the correct ones and you'll be fine. Some of the reviews I read were quite unclear. With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean.

"The hinge is wonderful."

People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. Aquariums are less standard than you might think. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin.

"Better than expected!"

Had several cutouts to fit different size filters, heaters, etc. I'm really happy with how this turned out. Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars. It looks sooooooo much nicer than the bulky old black top I had. I am very happy I didn't list to the nay sayers! It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement. Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium.

"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.

"It is just what I wanted."

When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. Don't know about their longevity though. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin. Sitting on the couch you can barely tell there's a hood on the tank. It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly. I have a 50 gallon tank with middle bar.

"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.

"Well done."

Despite other reviews, this hood did fit my 55 gallon aquarium perfectly. The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy. I went through many reviews before buying this lid. I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want.

"Fits perfectly."

The space in the back fits my heater and filter perfectly. Which living in the countryside makes these a hard to find item. Also, received a week earlier than scheduled date. Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible. I almost thought they shipped me the wrong item haha. I am quite happy with the product otherwise. My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing.

"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.
