"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.

"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.

Innovative Marine Final Thoughts

"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!

"The light is very bright."

They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium. I am very happy with this purchase! I highly recommend this product from THIS seller. I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had. I bought this after the marine-land LED lid failed on me.

"No problems as of yet."

It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. Even at petco that sold me the tank. I'm really happy with how this turned out. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. I have a Penn Plax 1200 filter on my 55 gallon tank. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description.

THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT LIGHTS AVAILABLE. I decided to introduce two Black Oscars into my tank. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin.

Aqueon 821108 Final Thoughts

"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.

"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.

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.

"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.

"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.
