"Is like a decor piece."

I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. The aquarium came very well packaged and undamaged. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase.

"I was worried about that."

I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims. I've wanted this tank for a LONG time, and I love it. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. I will usually slow it down more at night so he can sleep undisturbed. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh.

"I've had it a day so far."

I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. The instructions are maybe two pages.

  • DreamDealsSG 100x Tourmaline Balls for Freshwater Aquarium Tank. Mineral Supplement Substrate. Live Shrimp Food, Betta Fish Food, and Crayfish Food. Water Conditioner for Freshwater Shrimp etc.
  • Vibrant health: Just like vitamins, minerals and pH balanced water for humans, your Shrimp, Bettas, Crayfish and Snails also need those things for bright colors, healthy breeding, molting and play! So, when you add DDSG Mineral Balls to your tank you’re giving your fishy friends, the best of health!
  • How do they work? Out in the wild, cherry shrimp, ghost shrimp, amano shrimp, freshwater fish and all other water-lovin’ life are constantly exposed to pH balanced, mineral water from earth’s rocks – with natural bacteria. This is how they molt, breed and maintain healthy vibrancy. Our organic tourmaline is a natural rock with over 30 minerals to keep your tank balanced just like those wild waters.
  • Size and quantity: This is the most cost effective pack you’ve found on your search. Chances are you have at least one 10 gallon fish tank (but commonly 20 gallon tank, or 50 gallon). And because you’ll add one ¼ inch ball per gallon, you’ll need enough for every tank! So this 100 pack makes perfect sense.
  • Copper-free! Of course you may have some nerite snails and other friendly things in your shrimp tank, so you’ll love knowing each tourmaline ball is copper-free! And because they’re natural and pH balanced they keep your aquarium crystal clear, free from impurities, ammonia and hold a stable pH balance. And because they’re so mineral rich, your aquatic plants will get the nutrients they need, too.
  • Calcium-enhanced and more: DDSG Mineral Supplement beads contain 30 minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, sodium, boron, manganese and more. It’s like a daily dose of Spirulina for our splashy pals! Suited for freshwater aquarium snails, betta tank, freshwater shrimp, live crayfish and goldfish. So, feed them well, keep them clean, and supplement with DDSG Minerals so they can dazzle you for years!

"This was perfect!"

But even so, the tank is beautiful! The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad.

"Pretty Happy."

Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. You can't even see the pushed in spots. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in.

"Easy to clean."

I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! I will usually slow it down more at night so he can sleep undisturbed. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube.

I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back.

"Easy to assemble."

It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. The standard filter doesn't work with a SALTWATER aquarium. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! I will update if I have any issues. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. The standard filter doesn't work with a SALTWATER aquarium.

"I just bought my 4th."

I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill. Should survive the shipping process just fine! They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank.

I do 1 drop per two gallons 3x a week for first few months. Overall great package and would definitely buy it again and recommend it. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this.

If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. Both my fish are doing well with this setup.
