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.

"This hood is excellent."

Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. It came with 8 hooks, but I only needed the 2. Then he texted me to let me know when my order was shipped. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Don't know about their longevity though. Bought one for a 10 gal Tetra aquarium. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked!

"It was quite junk."

Additionally, the lighting with the original hood was terrible. Purchased this for my 29 gallon Tetra Open Glass Tank. Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. I am quite happy with the product otherwise. The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass.

It installed easily and looks great. OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful. It is flat and sleek, the led lights are fantastic.

"Well worth the price."

Aquariums are less standard than you might think. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. I have a 50 gallon tank with middle bar. Easy to set up, Very good illumination. FACTORY WATERPROOFING IS INADEQUATE. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS.

"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.

"It fits any 75 gallon."

It's nothing major just something to know if you have a stupid fish like me lol. I bought this for my 55 gallon tank that has no divider, thinking it would work. All in all, I'm very pleased with my purchase. With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. Aqueon has different measurements from Marineland tanks. Picture shows the one I did receive. It comes with a fold that you can cut off if you want.

"Thanks a lot."

It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. I highly recommend this product from THIS seller. Fit perfectly on my aqueon 10 gallon tank and was really easy to put together. I am very happy I didn't list to the nay sayers! It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly. He introduced himself and then confirmed my order. So I re-measured, and told him that my tank was 12.

So far very pleased with my purchase.

"I'm very pleased."

Don't know about their longevity though. Yet another reason why I hate Top Fin. I am quite happy with the product otherwise. It was a hassle to open to feed the fish as well as to clean. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. I bought this hood to replace the glass ones I had. New handles work amazing as expected and my tank looks great.

Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids. It installed easily and looks great. 2 packages of 2 stick on handles for the lids were included. Very shortly after I placed my order, I got a call from the seller. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE AND EXCELLENT PRODUCT! ITS UP TO YOU TO GET YOUR MEASURMENTS RIGHT. The company was super fast with their shipping and really great customer service.

People complaining about fit probably didn't pat attention to the description. The plastic pieces to break out for the filter and such are perfect for my needs.

"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.

"The year was 2019."

We got an old reptile tank that someone was using as a fishtank. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly. Had a small issue with the handles. MIGHT DO YOU GOOD TO CHOOSE ANOTHER BRAND. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. You also have a second extender to make it bigger for bigger tanks. It is bright, easy to use, and fits my 20 gallon aquarium perfect.
