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.

Juwel 54388/4005 First Impressions

"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.

"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.

"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.

5. Zoo Med Laboratories INC Paludarium Hood Black 12 INCH (690862)

Zoo Med 690862 First Impressions

"The year was 2019."

I have a Penn Plax 1200 filter on my 55 gallon tank. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. Just buy the correct ones and you'll be fine. Some of the reviews I read were quite unclear. With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid.

"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.

"My other one is clear."

Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. Sitting on the couch you can barely tell there's a hood on the tank. Just buy the correct ones and you'll be fine. Don't know about their longevity though. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. Had several cutouts to fit different size filters, heaters, etc. Hinge lets light through--a plus for my planted tank.

"No problems as of yet."

The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler.

"Fits perfectly."

I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly. They dont have any borders on them to make handling easier. You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12. All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase.

"Nice, thick glass."

My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy. We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first. I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit.
