Lee's 18673 First Impressions

"Looks great."

I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. After some experimentation And constant monitoring I found that the flat Aqueon 7. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! Please note that the tank is 100% clear. Also very important for filtration.

Lee's 18673 Final Thoughts

"I just bought my 4th."

The purple coralline algae is growing well. Still waiting for the silicone to cure. I had a coworker who also likes fish helping me and we had it together in 15 minutes. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. I am especially fond of the raised base. The most serious issue thus far is the light bar. Nothing to complain about with this tank at all.

"Hold temperatures better."

This arrived a little over 24 hours ago and I will update as a resolution comes. After some experimentation And constant monitoring I found that the flat Aqueon 7. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video.

Eshopps Inc. 889029 Final Thoughts

"Just my luck."

Both my fish are doing well with this setup. I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. Secondly, the up close picture of the logo and silicon work is VERY close. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase.

3. Aqua Culture Aquarium, 10 gallon

User Ratings: 70 14

Generic First Impressions

"Is like a decor piece."

I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. The aquarium came very well packaged and undamaged. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase.

Generic Final Thoughts

"I was worried about that."

I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims. I've wanted this tank for a LONG time, and I love it. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. I will usually slow it down more at night so he can sleep undisturbed. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh.

AquaTop First Impressions

"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.

EISCO First Impressions

"Excellent buy!"

My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. I find them very easy to keep clean. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. I still keep it as a hospital tank. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work.

"Easy to set up."

DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. I recommend buying the biOtube polish to! It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect.

biOrb 46097.0 Final Thoughts

"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.

Both my fish are doing well with this setup. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water.

SeaClear X1010017123 Final Thoughts

"Fantastic aquarium!"

5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. The purple coralline algae is growing well. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions.

"Is like a decor piece."

Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! Just do your homework and don't overload this tank. Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star.

Toledo Goldfish Final Thoughts

"I inspected all seams."

An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. I had a coworker who also likes fish helping me and we had it together in 15 minutes. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it.

"Seems a little wasteful."

I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. Also very important for filtration. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner. Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank.
