Penn-Plax BBT4 First Impressions

"Looks great!"

It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. Put in small fish at 1 inch per gallon. Nothing to complain about with this tank at all. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. Still waiting for the silicone to cure.

Penn-Plax BBT4 Final Thoughts

"The clarity of this 7."

Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. The aquarium came very well packaged and undamaged. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile.

2. Penn Plax Curved Corner Glass Aquarium Kit

Penn-Plax WW111K First Impressions

"I inspected all seams."

I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. 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. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more.

"Scratch that."

My other gripe would be with the lid. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. The purple coralline algae is growing well.

"5-3 fish, not 5."

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. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. But even so, the tank is beautiful! The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. Overall great package and would definitely buy it again and recommend it.

"Thanks KollerCraft!"

The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. I have been an active fish keeper for years. I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. Most important though is the lighting issue. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs.

"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.

"Looks great!"

Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. The size is in the description is accurate. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. Not a fan of the filtration sponge. You can't even see the pushed in spots. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect.

"Would buy again."

So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. The purple coralline algae is growing well. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. All in all it is packaged very well. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect.

"Easy to clean."

I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too.

One of the hardest parts of pet ownership for children is taking responsibility and remembering to feed their pet every day.

"My betta is very happy!"

So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. 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. 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. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. I think I am going to get the 28 gallon also for my office area in the loft.

"Attached some photos."

I recommend buying the biOtube polish to! Still waiting for the silicone to cure. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult. Secondly, the up close picture of the logo and silicon work is VERY close. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours.

"The Fluval 13."

You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. I find them very easy to keep clean. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again.

"Don't overfeed!"

It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. But even so, the tank is beautiful! Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. I find them very easy to keep clean.

"Great tank."

You can't even see the pushed in spots. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases. My other gripe would be with the lid. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank.

"I am in love with it!"

To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. 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. It took less than 10 minutes to get a new light bar shipped out. I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims. Mostly I just love looking at this tank.

"I got the'10'."

My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. Should survive the shipping process just fine! Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this. Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well.

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.

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.
