MarineLand 17878 First Impressions

"But like I said."

I almost thought they shipped me the wrong item haha. Shipping was a little slow but hey it's free and it came intact! The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. We got an old reptile tank that someone was using as a fishtank. Two peel and stick plastic lift pulls are provided. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement.

MarineLand 17878 Final Thoughts

"It fits any 75 gallon."

Just buy the correct ones and you'll be fine. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. Even at petco that sold me the tank. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. FACTORY WATERPROOFING IS INADEQUATE.

2. H2Pro 16″ Glass Canopy 5.5 Gallon Aquarium Fish Tank (15.28 x 7.56 x 0.16in)

H2Pro 16GT First Impressions

"It was quite junk."

When I first picked up the package, it was really light. It was a hair too narrow across and way too deep. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed. Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars. Aquariums are less standard than you might think.

"I love it!"

I previously had a tank hood that took the long florescent bulbs. That tank hood went bad after only a year. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides. You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked!

"The quality is 100% good."

I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. It came with 8 hooks, but I only needed the 2. Fit perfectly on my aqueon 10 gallon tank and was really easy to put together. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is.

Perfecto R01929 First Impressions

"It fits any 75 gallon."

My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. Don't know about their longevity though. It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic.

"This will help immensely!"

It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. Shipping was a little slow but hey it's free and it came intact! I went through many reviews before buying this lid. I would order this again in a heartbeat. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible.

"Perfectly!"

It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. I am very happy with this purchase! I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit. As a short individual I did find the edges a little sharp. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12.

"So that's also a plus."

The hooks for the back were an added bonus. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. I absolutly love the product and the people. Also, received a week earlier than scheduled date. Lights are bright and makes my tank look really neat. I previously had a tank hood that took the long florescent bulbs. Very shortly after I placed my order, I got a call from the seller.

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.

"It was quite junk."

EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND EXCELLENT PRODUCT! If you measure your openings carefully, it will fit. I bought this after the marine-land LED lid failed on me. Lights are bright and makes my tank look really neat. They dont have any borders on them to make handling easier. Don't know about their longevity though. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle.

"3 switch positions."

I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. 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. THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT LIGHTS AVAILABLE. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12.
