Marina 13358 First Impressions

"This tank is amazing!"

Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. Not a fan of the filtration sponge. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to.

Marina 13358 Final Thoughts

"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.

2. SevenSeaSupply - 3 x Live Golden Mystery Snail - Algae Eater for Aquariums…

User Ratings: 68

SevenSeaSupply First Impressions

"Yeah it sucks."

I recommend buying the biOtube polish to! I will most definitely be sticking with Landen for future aquarium purchases. I have been an active fish keeper for years. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star. If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! It is awesome for a very small amount of water.

"Overall, very happy."

Overall great package and would definitely buy it again and recommend it. The purple coralline algae is growing well. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. Just do your homework and don't overload this tank. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more. Mostly I just love looking at this tank.

Boutique Betta Final Thoughts

"I really love it."

The standard filter doesn't work with a SALTWATER aquarium. All in all it is packaged very well. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick.

Penn-Plax DPR5 First Impressions

"They sent a replacement."

I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. Not a fan of the filtration sponge. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase.

Penn-Plax DPR5 Final Thoughts

"Tank still usable!"

The longest delay was my downloading invoice. I have a lot of freshwater tanks, but this is my 1st attempt at saltwater. Keep up with water changes and testing and it'll be smooth sailing. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank. 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. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed.

5. Deluxe Wall Mounted Brushed Aluminum Bubble Fish Tank Silver Acrylic Glass

Unknown First Impressions

"Great beginners tank."

I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner.

"Arrived in one piece!"

I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. But even so, the tank is beautiful! I put in some white stones and it looks amazing.

"Who knows why."

The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. All in all it is packaged very well. I have been an active fish keeper for years. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. Nothing to complain about with this tank at all.

Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions.

Toledo Goldfish Final Thoughts

"And it functions great."

Also very important for filtration. It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. I had a coworker who also likes fish helping me and we had it together in 15 minutes. Clean silicone lines and clear glass. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums.

8. Aqueon 7.5 Gallon LED Shrimp Aquarium Kit

User Ratings: 46 24

Aqueon First Impressions

"Excellent buy!"

Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. But even so, the tank is beautiful! They are affordable and beautiful and well made. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review.

I have a lot of freshwater tanks, but this is my 1st attempt at saltwater. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks.

After the foam is in I put the gravel in. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. I will update if I have any issues. I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing.

10. BioCube Coralife LED Size 32 Aquarium Reef Bundle

BioCube First Impressions

"Easy to clean."

Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. The instructions are maybe two pages. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. This arrived a little over 24 hours ago and I will update as a resolution comes. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria.

BioCube Final Thoughts

"Don't overfeed!"

The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in.
