"They were big."

It comes with a fold that you can cut off if you want. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Sitting on the couch you can barely tell there's a hood on the tank. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! I love it love it love it, and my fish are now happy!

"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.

2. Top Quality Flourescent Deluxe Hood 36bf Hood Black

Central Garden & Pet - Aquatic First Impressions

"Lights up my 5."

ITS UP TO YOU TO GET YOUR MEASURMENTS RIGHT. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. Also, received a week earlier than scheduled date. The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. Hoods work great and light is bright. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement.

"Lights up my 5."

I have an Aqueon QuietFlow 30 and it fit just fine. Despite other reviews, this hood did fit my 55 gallon aquarium perfectly. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin. Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice.

"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.

inTank IM10CV First Impressions

"Well done, sellers!"

Long story short, I got rid of Dolce and Gabbana. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. It has a feeding hole and holes for the cables and filter. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. I went through many reviews before buying this lid. OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful.

"This will help immensely!"

THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT LIGHTS AVAILABLE. People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. I decided to introduce two Black Oscars into my tank. I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP!

"The power cord is nice."

My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. The lid is not heavy and the plastic is thin, but still does what it needs to do. Had a small issue with the handles. Which living in the countryside makes these a hard to find item. OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful. I am quite happy with the product otherwise.

It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs. So far very pleased with my purchase.

6. inTank Filtration Cover for Innovative Marine Fusion 30L and Fusion Pro 30L

inTank First Impressions

"They are grey."

It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. Just be careful when doing so cause the black plastic seems a little fragile. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off. Easy to set up, Very good illumination. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly.

I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together. Had a small issue with the handles.

"So, I bought it."

You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. I figured, it's perfect, it has to fit. Even at petco that sold me the tank. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong. Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids. We were not able to get the covers on without lubricating them first.

"I'm happy with my hood."

Also, as far as the plastic back piece being hard to fit on lid. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed. I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. I love it love it love it, and my fish are now happy! Had a small issue with the handles. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy.

"I have a happy fish now."

I wasn't absolutely certain that they'd fit. Lights are bright and makes my tank look really neat. It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic. Easy to set up, Very good illumination. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. Very shortly after I placed my order, I got a call from the seller. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy.

"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.

"I love it!"

THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT LIGHTS AVAILABLE. Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible. They fit my 75 gallon aqueon fish tank like a glove. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. EVEN DOWN TO THE TWO SIDED TAPE THAT HOLD THE HANDLES TO THE LIP TOP! It is bright, easy to use, and fits my 20 gallon aquarium perfect. You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself.

They murdered almost every fish in my tank. So far very pleased with my purchase. Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. Just buy the correct ones and you'll be fine. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides.

"Love this canopy."

Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium. Aside from these complaints I am very happy so I give it 4 stars. It looks sooooooo much nicer than the bulky old black top I had. My old hood was cracked and in desperate need of replacing. I bought this after the marine-land LED lid failed on me. NOW IN LATE APRIL, TWO OF THE THREE LED GROUPS ARE OUT. Mine slid right on with no problem so that might be an issue that they have fixed.

"Thanks a lot."

However the first one came with one sides of the glass was broken. Fit my 75 gallon All Glass aquarium with split covers perfectly. Unlike others on Amazon, this is real tempered glass and very strong. The space in the back fits my heater and filter perfectly. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly. I ordered this canopy for my planted tank to cut down on evaporation. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS.
