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.

Aqueon 821108 First Impressions

"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. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. 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.

"I love it!"

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!

They dont have any borders on them to make handling easier. I thought of putting some hot silicone to prevent this, but never got to do it. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size 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!
