"Hope this review helps!"

You can't even see the pushed in spots. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. I still keep it as a hospital tank. I will usually slow it down more at night so he can sleep undisturbed. I find them very easy to keep clean. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria.

Aquatic Fundamentals AMZ-36291-01 Final Thoughts

"Thanks KollerCraft!"

It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks.

"Excellent buy!"

Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. All in all it is packaged very well. I have been an active fish keeper for years. You can't even see the pushed in spots. It is awesome for a very small amount of water.

SeaClear X1010012303 Final Thoughts

"Really beautiful tank."

It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank. Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. But even so, the tank is beautiful! To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube.

"Feed fish."

I will update if I have any issues. Just do your homework and don't overload this tank. Not a fan of the filtration sponge. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co.

"Excellent buy!"

Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. The instructions are maybe two pages. I will most definitely be sticking with Landen for future aquarium purchases. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. All in all it is packaged very well. Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling.

"Easy to clean."

Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult. Glass was very well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder. I am especially fond of the raised base. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water!

"Attached some photos."

I have been an active fish keeper for years. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours.

Keep up with water changes and testing and it'll be smooth sailing. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way.

7. biOrb Classic 105 Liter Black Aquarium with MCR Lighting

biOrb First Impressions

"Yes, it was expensive."

My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. My other gripe would be with the lid. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater.

  • biOrb Classic 105 Liter Black Aquarium with MCR Lighting
  • The BiOrb Classic 105 Liter Black Aquarium with MCR Lighting combines classic good looks with high tech filtration. Most aquariums use small box filters and/or smooth gravel which easily clogs with dirt.
  • The MCR LED Light can be used in manual or cycle (automatic) modes. In the cycle mode you can choose an 8, 10, 12 or 14 hour cycle. In each cycle there is a 15 minute sunrise period where the light ramps up to full brightness and the end of the cycle the light ramps down. During the off hours only a dim night light will operate. In manual mode you will have control over the color mix and the brightness of the light. The LEDs are white, blue, green and red.

"It's so sleek!"

My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame. Highly recommend this for beginners. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star. Still waiting for the silicone to cure.

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.

  • Many fish can and will jump out of your aquarium. Nearly all fish can do this for numerous reasons.
  • On a similar note, a cover will help foreign objects from falling into the aquarium. If there are young children or pets in your household, this could be a very important consideration. Same thing if you keep any supplies above the tank.
  • A cover reduces evaporation, which means you will not lose water as quickly. This can be pretty noticeable in warm water systems. Evaporation can also leave mineral deposits behind.

"I am in love with it!"

It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised.
