"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.

"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!

"This hood is excellent."

I am quite happy with the product otherwise. I have a hanging filter across the back on one side. They fit perfectly on my tank, pretty thick glass& the handles attach easily. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. Overall, very happy with this canopy set and you definitely can't beat the price. Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks.

"My other one is clear."

Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. Sitting on the couch you can barely tell there's a hood on the tank. Just buy the correct ones and you'll be fine. Don't know about their longevity though. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. Had several cutouts to fit different size filters, heaters, etc. Hinge lets light through--a plus for my planted tank.

"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.

"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.

"Well done."

The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together. Even at petco that sold me the tank. Then he texted me to let me know when my order was shipped. Two peel and stick plastic lift pulls are provided. You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. Lights are bright and makes my tank look really neat.

You also have a second extender to make it bigger for bigger tanks. 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. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. I am quite happy with the product otherwise. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do.

"This manufacturer cares."

I am quite happy with the product otherwise. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP! It was a hair too narrow across and way too deep. I'm so glad I finally ordered this top for my fish tank. I am very happy I didn't list to the nay sayers! I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove.

Long story short, I got rid of Dolce and Gabbana. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth.

"Let's lots of light in."

As a short individual I did find the edges a little sharp. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium. The design is very low profile which I like a lot. I ordered this canopy for my planted tank to cut down on evaporation. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! I have a hanging filter across the back on one side.
