J-star First Impressions

"This will help immensely!"

So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12. He introduced himself and then confirmed my order. OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. I decided to introduce two Black Oscars into my tank. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue.

J-star Final Thoughts

"The quality is 100% good."

Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. Very shortly after I placed my order, I got a call from the seller. Two peel and stick plastic lift pulls are provided. We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first. I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had.

"It's low profile."

That tank hood went bad after only a year. It was a hair too narrow across and way too deep. I'm really happy with how this turned out. Had several cutouts to fit different size filters, heaters, etc. WE are very happy with these glass covers. Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler. It's a little difficult to put on but it does snatch into place.

"They were mean."

I love it love it love it, and my fish are now happy! It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed. Sitting on the couch you can barely tell there's a hood on the tank. I have an Aqueon QuietFlow 30 and it fit just fine. The light provided is a lot better compared the the marine-land LED.

"The packaging is amazing."

Unfortunately, the price seems a little. It installed easily and looks great. I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly. He introduced himself and then confirmed my order.

"I wish they were sort of."

It looks sooooooo much nicer than the bulky old black top I had. However the first one came with one sides of the glass was broken. I have an Aqueon QuietFlow 30 and it fit just fine. Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler. I am very happy with this purchase! Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. FACTORY WATERPROOFING IS INADEQUATE.

"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.

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.

"So far they're sticking."

Had several cutouts to fit different size filters, heaters, etc. You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong. I am very happy I didn't list to the nay sayers! I would order this again in a heartbeat. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected.

"So, I bought it."

It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP! Aquariums are less standard than you might think. I am very happy I didn't list to the nay sayers! They fit perfectly on my tank, pretty thick glass& the handles attach easily. They didnt cut me but they did have a painful feel to them. It installed easily and looks great.

inTank IM10CV First Impressions

"Well done, sellers!"

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. It has a feeding hole and holes for the cables and filter. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. I went through many reviews before buying this lid. OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful.

7. inTank Filtration Cover for Innovative Marine Fusion 30L and Fusion Pro 30L

inTank First Impressions

"They are grey."

It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. 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. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. Easy to set up, Very good illumination. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly.

"They were mean."

I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together. Had a small issue with the handles. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP!

I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. It came with 8 hooks, but I only needed the 2. Fit perfectly on my aqueon 10 gallon tank and was really easy to put together. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is.
