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.

"I'm very pleased."

The hooks for the back were an added bonus. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. NOW IN LATE APRIL, TWO OF THE THREE LED GROUPS ARE OUT. I would order this again in a heartbeat. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. Which living in the countryside makes these a hard to find item.

"I have a standard 10 gal."

I absolutly love the product and the people. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! Had a small issue with the handles. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! Shipping was a little slow but hey it's free and it came intact!

3. Top Quality Flourescent Deluxe Hood 36bf Hood Black

Central Garden & Pet - Aquatic First Impressions

"Lights up my 5."

ITS UP TO YOU TO GET YOUR MEASURMENTS RIGHT. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. Also, received a week earlier than scheduled date. 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.

"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. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is.

"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 fit, the look."

The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. 2 packages of 2 stick on handles for the lids were included.

"Naturally fit perfectly."

The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. You also have a second extender to make it bigger for bigger tanks. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle.

"Love this canopy."

Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium. 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. My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. I bought this after the marine-land LED lid failed on me. NOW IN LATE APRIL, TWO OF THE THREE LED GROUPS ARE OUT. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed.

"Thanks a lot."

However the first one came with one sides of the glass was broken. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong. The space in the back fits my heater and filter perfectly. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly. I ordered this canopy for my planted tank to cut down on evaporation. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS.

"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.

Just buy the correct ones and you'll be fine. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. Even at petco that sold me the tank. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. FACTORY WATERPROOFING IS INADEQUATE.
