Penn-Plax WW111K First Impressions

"I inspected all seams."

I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more.

Penn-Plax WW111K Final Thoughts

"Scratch that."

My other gripe would be with the lid. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. The purple coralline algae is growing well.

"Hope this review helps!"

You can't even see the pushed in spots. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. I still keep it as a hospital tank. I will usually slow it down more at night so he can sleep undisturbed. I find them very easy to keep clean. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria.

"Thanks KollerCraft!"

It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks.

Dennerle 5903 First Impressions

"Absolutely luv it."

I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. Still waiting for the silicone to cure. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense.

Dennerle 5903 Final Thoughts

"I love this tank."

Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks.

"It is non-adjustable."

Secondly, the up close picture of the logo and silicon work is VERY close. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine.

Dennerle Scaper's Tank DE-T1 Final Thoughts

"Is like a decor piece."

Not a fan of the filtration sponge. I have a lot of freshwater tanks, but this is my 1st attempt at saltwater. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. The size is in the description is accurate. The most serious issue thus far is the light bar. Should survive the shipping process just fine! Please note that the tank is 100% clear.

"I inspected all seams."

I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well.

To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. It took less than 10 minutes to get a new light bar shipped out. I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims.

Penn-Plax Final Thoughts

"I got the'10'."

My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. Should survive the shipping process just fine! Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this. Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well.

The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. I have been an active fish keeper for years. I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. Most important though is the lighting issue. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised.

"Is like a decor piece."

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. Highly recommend this for beginners. It came quickly, and was easy to set up. I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank.

I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs.

After some experimentation And constant monitoring I found that the flat Aqueon 7. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult.
