"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.

"LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES!"

And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. I think I am going to get the 28 gallon also for my office area in the loft. I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims. It's simple enough to put together.

"Fantastic aquarium!"

If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! I will most definitely be sticking with Landen for future aquarium purchases. Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. Not a fan of the filtration sponge.

"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 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.

"I love this tank."

I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense.

"Big mistake."

It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank. Should survive the shipping process just fine! That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad.

"Absolutely luv it."

Also very important for filtration. I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. The standard filter doesn't work with a SALTWATER aquarium.

"It's gorgeous."

I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. Highly recommend this for beginners. All in all it is packaged very well. Mostly I just love looking at this tank.

"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.

"My betta really likes it."

Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again.
