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.

Dry Branch Sports Design BA-7 First Impressions

"I just bought my 4th."

Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape. My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. The purple coralline algae is growing well. Still waiting for the silicone to cure.

Dry Branch Sports Design BA-7 Final Thoughts

"5 thats all I can say."

Mostly I just love looking at this tank. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult. Nothing to complain about with this tank at all.

"I shut mine off."

I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad.

"Very sturdy."

It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. Clean silicone lines and clear glass. Nothing to complain about with this tank at all. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. Not a fan of the filtration sponge.

Lifegard R460053 First Impressions

"I've had this tank for 1."

Still waiting for the silicone to cure. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling.

"No regrets."

I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. The instructions are maybe two pages. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. I have been an active fish keeper for years. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape.

Jungle TB630W First Impressions

"This tank is amazing!"

The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. I've wanted this tank for a LONG time, and I love it. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. I still keep it as a hospital tank. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge.

"Would buy again."

Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling.

Brightwell Aquatics FOXG300 First Impressions

"They work well for algae."

At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. Nothing to complain about with this tank at all. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water.

Brightwell Aquatics FOXG300 Final Thoughts

"My betta really likes it."

Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. Put in small fish at 1 inch per gallon. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims.

At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims. I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing.

Aqua Huna Final Thoughts

"Don't overfeed!"

I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. The standard filter doesn't work with a SALTWATER aquarium. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back.

I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. It's simple enough to put together. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult.

Toledo Goldfish Final Thoughts

"5 years now."

I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement.

9. AquaTop 6.5G High Clarity Glass Bookshelf Style Aquarium (HCA-3G)

AquaTop First Impressions

"I was worried about that."

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. I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase.

"I really love it."

I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. The purple coralline algae is growing well. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. It came quickly, and was easy to set up. The longest delay was my downloading invoice.

"It is non-adjustable."

I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. Clean silicone lines and clear glass. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. After some experimentation And constant monitoring I found that the flat Aqueon 7.

"I love this tank."

Mostly I just love looking at this tank. Highly recommend this for beginners. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. I have been an active fish keeper for years. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in.
