"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.

"The fit, the look."

The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. 2 packages of 2 stick on handles for the lids were included. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. Hoods work great and light is bright. Lights are bright and makes my tank look really neat. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement.

"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.

"My other one is clear."

I would order this again in a heartbeat. I have an Aqueon QuietFlow 30 and it fit just fine. We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first. Long story short, I got rid of Dolce and Gabbana. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! He introduced himself and then confirmed my order. I bought this tank hood and I have never been happier.

"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.

"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!

"The power cord is nice."

Had a small issue with the handles. I absolutly love the product and the people. The light provided is a lot better compared the the marine-land LED. The company was super fast with their shipping and really great customer service. It's a little difficult to put on but it does snatch into place. Don't know about their longevity though. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth.

"Measure before you buy."

I thought of putting some hot silicone to prevent this, but never got to do it. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS. New handles work amazing as expected and my tank looks great. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. So far very pleased with my purchase. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP!

It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Don't know about their longevity though. The instructions are good, I suggesting following them. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together.

"Naturally fit perfectly."

I bought this tank hood and I have never been happier. It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off.

Had several cutouts to fit different size filters, heaters, etc. The hood sits on plastic hinges that clip to the back of your tank. NOW IN LATE APRIL, TWO OF THE THREE LED GROUPS ARE OUT. I am very happy with this purchase! All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase. All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase.

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.

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.

"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.
