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.

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.

"Hopefully it holds up."

I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! It was a hair too narrow across and way too deep. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! Don't know about their longevity though. We got an old reptile tank that someone was using as a fishtank. Had a small issue with the handles. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs.

Juwel 93935 Final Thoughts

"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.

"Otherwise, thanks!"

Despite other reviews, this hood did fit my 55 gallon aquarium perfectly. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. Purchased this for my 29 gallon Tetra Open Glass Tank. Shipping was a little slow but hey it's free and it came intact! You have to assemble the LED lights to the hood yourself. I bought this tank hood and I have never been happier. The glass and the plastic hinge form a tight fit that is difficult to get together.

It looks sooooooo much nicer than the bulky old black top I had. I love it love it love it, and my fish are now happy! The company was super fast with their shipping and really great customer service. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. WE are very happy with these glass covers. It was a hair too narrow across and way too deep.

"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.

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.

"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 guess 2 spares."

I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. Don't know about their longevity though. However the first one came with one sides of the glass was broken. Unfortunately, the price seems a little. They didnt cut me but they did have a painful feel to them. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. I love it love it love it, and my fish are now happy!

"Rounded off."

They didnt cut me but they did have a painful feel to them. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. Long story short, I got rid of Dolce and Gabbana. OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy. Very shortly after I placed my order, I got a call from the seller. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly.

"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.

"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.

"The light is very bright."

So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. Sitting on the couch you can barely tell there's a hood on the tank. Then he texted me to let me know when my order was shipped. Had a small issue with the handles. This is a perfect fit for a 75gallon aquarium I bought used. I'm so glad I finally ordered this top for my fish tank.
