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.

inTank WB20CV First Impressions

"So far they're sticking."

They dont have any borders on them to make handling easier. I thought of putting some hot silicone to prevent this, but never got to do it. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. The instructions are good, I suggesting following them. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. Perfect fit for older aquarium's with thicker center piece and sides.

"The fit, the look."

Other than that, it was really easy to put together and set up. The lighting had failed in my 55 gal aquarium. The instructions are good, I suggesting following them. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. WE are very happy with these glass covers. The design is very low profile which I like a lot. I bought this for my 55 gallon tank that has no divider, thinking it would work.

"The packaging is amazing."

Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. I think a tank could have rolled over the box and the glass wouldn't have cracked! Dont blame manufacturer if you can read a ruler. I have an Aqueon QuietFlow 30 and it fit just fine. OMG it fits perfectly and make my tank look more vivid& beautiful. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. Now, getting to what I know you are all reading this review for- the new tank lids.

"This will help immensely!"

I have a hanging filter across the back on one side. Then he texted me to let me know when my order was shipped. THERE ARE NO REPLACEMENT LIGHTS AVAILABLE. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. 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. They provide extra handles just in case which is nice.

Because it comes with the handles unattached so you can place them where you want. I almost thought they shipped me the wrong item haha. I got the package within a couple of days, much sooner than I expected. Nice that the seller called to ensure a good fit before shipping. It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly. I'm hopeful that I can trim the glass down with some emery cloth. However the first one came with one sides of the glass was broken.

"Its an interesting lid."

They provide extra handles just in case which is nice. The hood fits perfectly on my 55 gallon tank which has a divider in the middle. I mean it's the same brand and says it's for our size tank. I went through many reviews before buying this lid. I'm wondering if I could just be sent the other plastic piece I'm missing. NOW IN LATE APRIL, TWO OF THE THREE LED GROUPS ARE OUT. It doesn't have a recessed area to help avoid movement.

"This works really well."

It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. Overall everything came intact and its working so I'm satisfied. Don't know about their longevity though.

"Naturally fit perfectly."

I bought this tank hood and I have never been happier. It would have been much easier to trim it prior to assembly. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH QUALITY OF PRODUCT NOR WITH LACK OF REPLACEMENT LIGHTS. It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. The tape provided has a little tab that makes it easy to peel and stick. When I purchased these glass covers, I did it with my fingers crossed. We have a pretty quiet household though, so nobody will be knocking it off.

"Lights up my 5."

It fit the 55gallon tank without an issue. IF YOU BUY THIS HOOD BE SURE TO SEAL WITH SILICON WHERE WIRES GO TO INTO LIGHT GROUP. When I first picked up the package, it was really light. They fit our 90 gallon tank perfectly. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. 2 packages of 2 stick on handles for the lids were included. You do have to put the LED's in yourself but it is super super easy.

"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.

"Hopefully it holds up."

I thought of putting some hot silicone to prevent this, but never got to do it. I ordered this canopy for my planted tank to cut down on evaporation. IF YOU BUY THIS HOOD BE SURE TO SEAL WITH SILICON WHERE WIRES GO TO INTO LIGHT GROUP. When I would attempt to feed them, these monsters would JUMP out of the tank. Def a good purchase if you are looking for a affordable 55 gallon glass lid. I used the extra space to run the heater cable, but still had to cut for my filter. Had a small issue with the handles.

"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.

The knockouts aren't to difficult, I used needle nose pliers and snapped really easy.
