"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.

"Looks great."

Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. My other gripe would be with the lid. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank.

"Will keep you posted!"

I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. Put in small fish at 1 inch per gallon. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. Also very important for filtration.

"They work well for algae."

I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. Just do your homework and don't overload this tank. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases.

biOrb 45995.0 Final Thoughts

"5 gallon tank."

I will usually slow it down more at night so he can sleep undisturbed. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. It is awesome for a very small amount of water. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult.

"LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES!"

And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again. Still waiting for the silicone to cure.

biOrb 45618 Final Thoughts

"Fantastic aquarium!"

5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. Clean silicone lines and clear glass. I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks.

JBJ MT-604-CKIT Final Thoughts

"Attached some photos."

It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. It is awesome for a very small amount of water. I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again.

"5 years in to ownership."

I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. Should survive the shipping process just fine! I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater.

All Glass Aquariums 15905100151 First Impressions

"I got the'10'."

An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. I find them very easy to keep clean. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank.

"Still loving this biorb!"

Not a fan of the filtration sponge. I find them very easy to keep clean. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. It came quickly, and was easy to set up. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well.

"No regrets."

We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. Secondly, the up close picture of the logo and silicon work is VERY close. Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more.

I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this.

"My betta is very happy!"

Still waiting for the silicone to cure. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc.
