AquaSprouts AquaSprouts Garden First Impressions

"Attached some photos."

Both my fish are doing well with this setup. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank. My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums.

AquaSprouts AquaSprouts Garden Final Thoughts

"It's so sleek!"

Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. I think I am going to get the 28 gallon also for my office area in the loft. I am especially fond of the raised base. I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia.

Eternal First Impressions

"Thanks KollerCraft!"

Just do your homework and don't overload this tank. The instructions are maybe two pages. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches.

"Still loving this biorb!"

I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. I will update if I have any issues. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. Still waiting for the silicone to cure. Should survive the shipping process just fine! I recommend buying the biOtube polish to!

"It's gorgeous."

My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again.

"Easy to clean."

I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. I still keep it as a hospital tank. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement.

"Looks great!"

Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. The size is in the description is accurate. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. Not a fan of the filtration sponge. You can't even see the pushed in spots. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect.

Penn-Plax SBK108 Final Thoughts

"Would buy again."

So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. The purple coralline algae is growing well. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. All in all it is packaged very well. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect.

"Pretty bummed."

I have a lot of freshwater tanks, but this is my 1st attempt at saltwater. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense.

Lifegard Aquatics R460012 Final Thoughts

"Absolutely gorgeous."

I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! Clean silicone lines and clear glass. I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase.

"Scratch that."

It took less than 10 minutes to get a new light bar shipped out. Keep up with water changes and testing and it'll be smooth sailing. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. Most important though is the lighting issue. My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it.

Ailinda Final Thoughts

"Easy read."

I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! Also very important for filtration. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer.

"This table is beautiful."

I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. Glass was very well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder. I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. I will most definitely be sticking with Landen for future aquarium purchases.

"They sent a replacement."

You can't even see the pushed in spots. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed.

"Yeah it sucks."

He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner. I recommend buying the biOtube polish to! It's simple enough to put together. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way.

"5 years in to ownership."

Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. I will most definitely be sticking with Landen for future aquarium purchases. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. But even so, the tank is beautiful!

"Scratch that."

After the foam is in I put the gravel in. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. I've wanted this tank for a LONG time, and I love it.
