"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.

"5 years now."

I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. Overall great package and would definitely buy it again and recommend it. He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner.

AquaTop Final Thoughts

"Highly recommend."

I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria.

"Tank arrived intact."

Still waiting for the silicone to cure. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. This arrived a little over 24 hours ago and I will update as a resolution comes. I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. I find them very easy to keep clean. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder.

"Recommended."

It is awesome for a very small amount of water. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again. Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. I still keep it as a hospital tank.

biOrb 46095.0 Final Thoughts

"And it functions great."

The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. Nothing to complain about with this tank at all. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult.

  • 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.

Aquarium Masters AM33012 Final Thoughts

"Recommended."

I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade.

"Easy to set up."

I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. Keep up with water changes and testing and it'll be smooth sailing. I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back.
