"It's not bad."

I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims. Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. Secondly, the up close picture of the logo and silicon work is VERY close. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks. I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again.

Red Sea 42082 Final Thoughts

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

I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. 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.

"It's so sleek!"

I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. Glass was very well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge.

"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.

"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.

"My betta really likes it."

I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. Most important though is the lighting issue. I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours.

"Filter finally gave out!"

I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. The aquarium came very well packaged and undamaged. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you.

Red Sea 42089 First Impressions

"5 thats all I can say."

I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. All in all it is packaged very well.

"5 years now."

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. I find them very easy to keep clean. Clean silicone lines and clear glass. I had a coworker who also likes fish helping me and we had it together in 15 minutes. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank.

Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. I find them very easy to keep clean. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank.

"Attached some photos."

I have been an active fish keeper for years. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours.

"Looks great!"

My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well.

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.

I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims. Most important though is the lighting issue. You can't even see the pushed in spots. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches.

"First go to Greatwaveeng."

If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. Put in small fish at 1 inch per gallon. It is awesome for a very small amount of water. The aquarium came very well packaged and undamaged. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. Most important though is the lighting issue.
