"Hope this review helps!"

The most serious issue thus far is the light bar. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. Highly recommend this for beginners. Secondly, the up close picture of the logo and silicon work is VERY close. I have been an active fish keeper for years. Clean silicone lines and clear glass.

"I love this tank."

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. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. Also very important for filtration. 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. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense.

"I inspected all seams."

The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. All in all it is packaged very well. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. I think I am going to get the 28 gallon also for my office area in the loft. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video.

"Fantastic aquarium!"

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. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. Glass was very well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums.

"Scratch that."

After the foam is in I put the gravel in. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. I've wanted this tank for a LONG time, and I love it.

"5 years in to ownership."

Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work.

"It's so sleek!"

And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again.

I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame.

"Will keep you posted!"

I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims. It came quickly, and was easy to set up. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. Also very important for filtration. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks.

"They sent a replacement."

My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. I still keep it as a hospital tank. Keep up with water changes and testing and it'll be smooth sailing. I still keep it as a hospital tank.

"I would buy another."

Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. Nothing to complain about with this tank at all. Just do your homework and don't overload this tank. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. After some experimentation And constant monitoring I found that the flat Aqueon 7. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions.

"Just my luck."

Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. I have a lot of freshwater tanks, but this is my 1st attempt at saltwater. I will most definitely be sticking with Landen for future aquarium purchases. I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. The most serious issue thus far is the light bar. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review.

"I absolutely love it."

My other gripe would be with the lid. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it.

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

"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.

"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.
