"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.

"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!

"Fit my tank perfectly."

Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. I almost thought they shipped me the wrong item haha. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. However the first one came with one sides of the glass was broken.

"Its an interesting lid."

They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. I went through many reviews before buying this lid. I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. NOW IN LATE APRIL, TWO OF THE THREE LED GROUPS ARE OUT. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement.

"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 installed easily and looks great. OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful. It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic.

"It fits any 75 gallon."

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.

"The fit, the look."

The light provided is a lot better compared the the marine-land LED. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND EXCELLENT PRODUCT! Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars. WE are very happy with these glass covers.

"This was it."

I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. If you measure your openings carefully, it will fit. Had a small issue with the handles. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS. Overall, very happy with this canopy set and you definitely can't beat the price.

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. The design is very low profile which I like a lot. So far very pleased with my purchase. This is a perfect fit for a 75gallon aquarium I bought used.

"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.

"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.

"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.
