"Seems a little wasteful."

My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. It's simple enough to put together. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. 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. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer.

"They work well for algae."

My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co.

"Pretty Happy."

Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. You can't even see the pushed in spots. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in.

"Easy to clean."

I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! I will usually slow it down more at night so he can sleep undisturbed. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube.

biOrb 46072 First Impressions

"Very happy customer!"

Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks.

biOrb 46072 Final Thoughts

"Don't overstock!"

I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. You can't even see the pushed in spots. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. I still keep it as a hospital tank. It is awesome for a very small amount of water. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on.

biOrb 46033.0 First Impressions

"It is non-adjustable."

This arrived a little over 24 hours ago and I will update as a resolution comes. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. Also very important for filtration. I will usually slow it down more at night so he can sleep undisturbed. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months.

"They work well for algae."

My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit.

Landen First Impressions

"Pretty Happy."

That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. I recommend buying the biOtube polish to! Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! The size is in the description is accurate. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches.

Landen Final Thoughts

"Attached some photos."

A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. Should survive the shipping process just fine! I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump.

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.

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.

"First go to Greatwaveeng."

I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame. It's simple enough to put together. I recommend buying the biOtube polish to! Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs.

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.

"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.

"Tank arrived intact."

If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. I still keep it as a hospital tank. I have a lot of freshwater tanks, but this is my 1st attempt at saltwater. This arrived a little over 24 hours ago and I will update as a resolution comes.

My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well.
