"This tank is super small."

It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. Still waiting for the silicone to cure. I will most definitely be sticking with Landen for future aquarium purchases. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. I find them very easy to keep clean. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums.

"Scratch that."

I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. The most serious issue thus far is the light bar. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny!

"Looks great."

Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. My other gripe would be with the lid. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank.

"Will keep you posted!"

I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. Put in small fish at 1 inch per gallon. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. Also very important for filtration. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc.

"Hope this review helps!"

Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank. The size is in the description is accurate. The instructions are maybe two pages.

AquaTop Final Thoughts

"I love this tank."

After the foam is in I put the gravel in. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank. But even so, the tank is beautiful! Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement.

"Seems a little wasteful."

You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. The purple coralline algae is growing well.

"LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES!"

After some experimentation And constant monitoring I found that the flat Aqueon 7. 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. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. My other gripe would be with the lid. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia.

"Highly recommend."

And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches.

Toledo Goldfish Final Thoughts

"Trying to contact vendor."

Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. I have a lot of freshwater tanks, but this is my 1st attempt at saltwater. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. Not a fan of the filtration sponge.

"Mine arrived perfectly!"

I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. The aquarium came very well packaged and undamaged. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait.

"Yeah it sucks."

He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner. I recommend buying the biOtube polish to! It's simple enough to put together. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way.

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.

"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.

It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in.

"I inspected all seams."

We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder. The size is in the description is accurate. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. Most important though is the lighting issue. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia.

"Easy to assemble."

If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks.

"Stand is great."

I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks.
