"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.

"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.

"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.

"Well done."

Despite other reviews, this hood did fit my 55 gallon aquarium perfectly. The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy. I went through many reviews before buying this lid. I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want.

"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.

"This hood is excellent."

Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. It came with 8 hooks, but I only needed the 2. Then he texted me to let me know when my order was shipped. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Don't know about their longevity though. Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked!

"It was quite junk."

Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible. Purchased this for my 29 gallon Tetra Open Glass Tank. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. 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. The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass.

"The fit, the look."

With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! I have a hanging filter across the back on one side. Also, as far as the plastic back piece being hard to fit on lid. The instructions are good, I suggesting following them. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. We got an old reptile tank that someone was using as a fishtank.

"One more thing."

It looks sooooooo much nicer than the bulky old black top I had. I decided to introduce two Black Oscars into my tank. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. They didnt cut me but they did have a painful feel to them. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly. New handles work amazing as expected and my tank looks great.

"Love this canopy."

I'm so glad I finally ordered this top for my fish tank. Hinge lets light through--a plus for my planted tank. Even at petco that sold me the tank. It's a little difficult to put on but it does snatch into place. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. VERY BAD POLICY OF THE MANUFACTURER. The hood sits on plastic hinges that clip to the back of your tank.

"My other one is clear."

VERY BAD POLICY OF THE MANUFACTURER. We got an old reptile tank that someone was using as a fishtank. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. I used the extra space to run the heater cable, but still had to cut for my filter. Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler. Hoods work great and light is bright. The hooks for the back were an added bonus.

"NEW RATING TWO STARS."

It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. Purchased this for my 29 gallon Tetra Open Glass Tank. Then he texted me to let me know when my order was shipped. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together. They fit my 75 gallon aqueon fish tank like a glove. I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND EXCELLENT PRODUCT!

"So, I bought it."

You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit. Even at petco that sold me the tank. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong. Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids.

Also, as far as the plastic back piece being hard to fit on lid. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed. I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. I love it love it love it, and my fish are now happy! Had a small issue with the handles. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy.

"Love this canopy."

I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. I ordered this canopy for my planted tank to cut down on evaporation. The light provided is a lot better compared the the marine-land LED. It's a little difficult to put on but it does snatch into place. ITS UP TO YOU TO GET YOUR MEASURMENTS RIGHT. It has a feeding hole and holes for the cables and filter. Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible.
