"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.

All Glass Aquariums 15905216029 Final Thoughts

"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. Juwel Primolux 60 Replacement Hood

Juwel JU36362NET First Impressions

"Perfectly!"

Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. It came with 8 hooks, but I only needed the 2. IF YOU BUY THIS HOOD BE SURE TO SEAL WITH SILICON WHERE WIRES GO TO INTO LIGHT GROUP. The light provided is a lot better compared the the marine-land LED. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together. 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.

Juwel JU36362NET Final Thoughts

"Lights up my 5."

I bought this after the marine-land LED lid failed on me. So far very pleased with my purchase. Very shortly after I placed my order, I got a call from the seller. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly. I have a Penn Plax 1200 filter on my 55 gallon tank.

"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.

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.

"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.

"It was quite junk."

EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP! I used the extra space to run the heater cable, but still had to cut for my filter. Had a small issue with the handles. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement. Despite other reviews, this hood did fit my 55 gallon aquarium perfectly.

The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. Hoods work great and light is bright. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement.

"Lights up my 5."

I have an Aqueon QuietFlow 30 and it fit just fine. Despite other reviews, this hood did fit my 55 gallon aquarium perfectly. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin. Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice.

"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!

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.

"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.

"It was quite junk."

When I first picked up the package, it was really light. It was a hair too narrow across and way too deep. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. 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. Aquariums are less standard than you might think.

"I love it!"

I previously had a tank hood that took the long florescent bulbs. That tank hood went bad after only a year. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked!
