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. inTank Filtration Cover for Innovative Marine Fusion & Pro 10 | Innovative Marine Fusion Peninsula 1...

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.

inTank IM10CV Final Thoughts

"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! I decided to introduce two Black Oscars into my tank.

3. inTank Fish Saver Guard for Oceanic BioCube 14

inTank First Impressions

"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! When I first picked up the package, it was really light. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank.

"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.

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.

"The fit, the look."

The light provided is a lot better compared the the marine-land LED. They murdered almost every fish in my tank. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off.

"This was it."

I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. If you measure your openings carefully, it will fit. Had a small issue with the handles. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium. Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS. Overall, very happy with this canopy set and you definitely can't beat the price.

"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!

"The fit, the look."

The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. 2 packages of 2 stick on handles for the lids were included. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. I immediately went to putting it together, which sounds easier that it really is. Hoods work great and light is bright. Lights are bright and makes my tank look really neat. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement.

"Naturally fit perfectly."

The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. I like that there's a double opening and that the pop outs are easy to remove. You also have a second extender to make it bigger for bigger tanks. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle.

"Let's talk about LEDs."

The WS2812B LED lights are simply resting on top of the glass. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS. Just buy the correct ones and you'll be fine. 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.

Also, received a week earlier than scheduled date. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. The hooks for the back were an added bonus. With these glass pieces, I was able to use my large light bar. Words cannot explain how much I adore this! I bought this for my 55 gallon tank that has no divider, thinking it would work. Don't know about their longevity though.

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.
