"LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES!"

And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. I think I am going to get the 28 gallon also for my office area in the loft. I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims. It's simple enough to put together.

Back to the Roots 32000 Final Thoughts

"Fantastic aquarium!"

If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! I will most definitely be sticking with Landen for future aquarium purchases. Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. Not a fan of the filtration sponge.

2. CAMRY Q3-320 6gal Build-in LED Light Curved Glass Fish Tank

CAMRY First Impressions

"Crystal clear viewing."

I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. Not a fan of the filtration sponge. I think I am going to get the 28 gallon also for my office area in the loft. Highly recommend this for beginners. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter.

"It's not Christmas time."

Nothing to complain about with this tank at all. It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. You can't even see the pushed in spots. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums.

"Don't overstock!"

Highly recommend this for beginners. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. It came quickly, and was easy to set up. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. Still waiting for the silicone to cure. Mostly I just love looking at this tank.

"I inspected all seams."

We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way.

"Absolutely luv it."

Also very important for filtration. I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. The standard filter doesn't work with a SALTWATER aquarium.

"It's gorgeous."

I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. Highly recommend this for beginners. All in all it is packaged very well. Mostly I just love looking at this tank.

"This tank is super small."

I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. 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. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. You can't even see the pushed in spots. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank.

"Easy to assemble."

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. I will update if I have any issues. But even so, the tank is beautiful! I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. It's simple enough to put together. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner.

"Not a fan."

Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. Glass was very well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. I will update if I have any issues. I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants.

"Seems a little wasteful."

Clean silicone lines and clear glass. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again. Just do your homework and don't overload this tank. I recommend buying the biOtube polish to!

"I would buy another."

I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. I will update if I have any issues. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more.

"I was worried about that."

The size is in the description is accurate. I find them very easy to keep clean. I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. The instructions are maybe two pages. I think I am going to get the 28 gallon also for my office area in the loft. The size is in the description is accurate.

"My betta is very happy!"

I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. I've wanted this tank for a LONG time, and I love it. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. It is awesome for a very small amount of water.

Toledo Goldfish Final Thoughts

"Hold temperatures better."

I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. Also very important for filtration. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this.

"Very sturdy."

I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. I am especially fond of the raised base. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this.
