"It's beautiful."

Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. All in all it is packaged very well. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank.

Python 940044 Final Thoughts

"This tank is super small."

I had a coworker who also likes fish helping me and we had it together in 15 minutes. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. Highly recommend this for beginners. I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade.

2. BioCube Coralife Size 32 Basic Reef Aquarium Bundle (6 Items)

BioCube First Impressions

"I would buy another."

All in all it is packaged very well. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. The most serious issue thus far is the light bar. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. It's simple enough to put together.

  • BioCube Coralife Size 32 Basic Reef Aquarium Bundle (6 Items)
  • This Deluxe Reef Aquarium Bundle combines 6 products: the Coralife Size 32 LED BioCube Aquarium with the BioCube Stand, and NEW STYLE BioCube Protein Skimmer (V2) w/Needle Wheel along with a FREE Inland Seas 3 oz Activated Carbon, FREE BioCube Algae Cleaning Magnet and FREE Coralife Deep Six Hydrometer.
  • The Coralife Size 32 LED BioCube Aquarium features LED lighting and timer capabilities–taking it to the next level of all-inclusive aquariums. It has a compact and customizable filtration chamber, hinge-top canopy design, quiet submersible pump, dual intakes, adjustable return nozzle and clear glass back panel for easy refugium set-up.
  • The Coralife BioCube NEW STYLE Protein Skimmer (V2) w/Needle Wheel is a step up from the old skimmer that used an airstone and an air pump. This Skimmer fits perfectly in the back chamber of the BioCube.
  • The Activated Carbon, Algae Cleaning Magnet and Deep Six Hydrometer are three essential items for running a successful reef aquarium. The BioCube Size 32 Aquarium Stand is built just for the BioCube 32. This attractive stand features tinted acrylic door panels, holes in the back for routing electrical cords and a storage shelf. The Stand does need to be assembled.
  • With these 6 products you will have much of what you need to have an amazing BioCube (except, of course, the coral, fish & water). If you need advice choosing more product for your BioCube, feel free to contact us for advice. And, if you’re not sure how to use all of these products properly, no need to worry. We include a simple setup guide.

BioCube Final Thoughts

"Recommended."

Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. Should survive the shipping process just fine! It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well.

3. UP Aqua UA-001B Ultra White Fluorescent Blue Silicone Aquarium

U.P. Aqua UA-001B First Impressions

"5-3 fish, not 5."

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. It took less than 10 minutes to get a new light bar shipped out. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. Also very important for filtration. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia.

"I've had it a day so far."

I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank.

"It's not bad."

Glass was very well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT.

5. SC Aquariums 120 Gallon Starfire Glass Aquarium 48x24x24 12mm Eurobraced with Built-in Overflow Box

SC Aquariums First Impressions

"This tank is super small."

It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! Highly recommend this for beginners. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder. I recommend buying the biOtube polish to! I have been an active fish keeper for years.

"I have used the h."

Not a fan of the filtration sponge. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. The instructions are maybe two pages. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. I've wanted this tank for a LONG time, and I love it.

"Don't overfeed!"

I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims.

"Trying to contact vendor."

Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. Should survive the shipping process just fine! Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap.

"I got the'10'."

An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. I find them very easy to keep clean. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank.

"Still loving this biorb!"

Not a fan of the filtration sponge. I find them very easy to keep clean. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. It came quickly, and was easy to set up. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well.

"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.

"I really love this stand."

I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. Most important though is the lighting issue. I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank. I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile.

"Will keep you posted!"

It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank. I am especially fond of the raised base. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. I've wanted this tank for a LONG time, and I love it.
