"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.

"Hopefully it holds up."

I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! It was a hair too narrow across and way too deep. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! Don't know about their longevity though. We got an old reptile tank that someone was using as a fishtank. Had a small issue with the handles. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs.

"Perfectly!"

It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. I am very happy with this purchase! I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit. As a short individual I did find the edges a little sharp. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12.

"No problems as of yet."

It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement. I am very happy I didn't list to the nay sayers! This is a perfect fit for a 75gallon aquarium I bought used. Also, as far as the plastic back piece being hard to fit on lid. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied.

"It just fits."

I bought this after the marine-land LED lid failed on me. Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler. I used the extra space to run the heater cable, but still had to cut for my filter. It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12.

"It fits any 75 gallon."

My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. Don't know about their longevity though. It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic.

"This will help immensely!"

It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. Shipping was a little slow but hey it's free and it came intact! I went through many reviews before buying this lid. I would order this again in a heartbeat. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible.

"I love it!"

THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT LIGHTS AVAILABLE. Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible. They fit my 75 gallon aqueon fish tank like a glove. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP! It is bright, easy to use, and fits my 20 gallon aquarium perfect. You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself.

"I'll never tell."

They murdered almost every fish in my tank. So far very pleased with my purchase. Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. Just buy the correct ones and you'll be fine. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides.

"The hinge is wonderful."

People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. Aquariums are less standard than you might think. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin.

"Perfectly!"

Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. It came with 8 hooks, but I only needed the 2. IF YOU BUY THIS HOOD BE SURE TO SEAL WITH SILICON WHERE WIRES GO TO INTO LIGHT GROUP. The light provided is a lot better compared the the marine-land LED. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together. 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.

"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.
