Tetra NV33149 First Impressions

"The packaging is amazing."

It's a little difficult to put on but it does snatch into place. That tank hood went bad after only a year. Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars. This is a perfect fit for a 75gallon aquarium I bought used. I am quite happy with the product otherwise. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs. Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler.

Tetra NV33149 Final Thoughts

"The lid looks very nice."

Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. The space in the back fits my heater and filter perfectly. Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP! We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first. Some of the reviews I read were quite unclear. I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had.

"I love it!"

As a short individual I did find the edges a little sharp. Which living in the countryside makes these a hard to find item. Aquariums are less standard than you might think. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. I have a hanging filter across the back on one side. The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy.

Aqueon 821108 Final Thoughts

"I am so proud."

That tank hood went bad after only a year. It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. I'm really happy with how this turned out. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. Had a small issue with the handles. I have a hanging filter across the back on one side.

"They were mean."

Even at petco that sold me the tank. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. ITS UP TO YOU TO GET YOUR MEASURMENTS RIGHT. I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together.

"I have a happy fish now."

Very shortly after I placed my order, I got a call from the seller. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. So far very pleased with my purchase. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium.

"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.

"Hey, they made it!"

It installed easily and looks great. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS.

We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. I'm really happy with how this turned out.

"High quality."

I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit. We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first. Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars. It has a feeding hole and holes for the cables and filter. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. It looks sooooooo much nicer than the bulky old black top I had.

Sitting on the couch you can barely tell there's a hood on the tank. THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT LIGHTS AVAILABLE. I am very happy with this purchase! Words cannot explain how much I adore this!

The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs. I thought of putting some hot silicone to prevent this, but never got to do it.

"Fit my tank perfectly."

You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. Some of the reviews I read were quite unclear. It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit.

"It was quite junk."

EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP! I used the extra space to run the heater cable, but still had to cut for my filter. Had a small issue with the handles. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement. Despite other reviews, this hood did fit my 55 gallon aquarium perfectly.
