Landen First Impressions

"Excellent buy!"

It is awesome for a very small amount of water. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. You can't even see the pushed in spots. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank.

Landen Final Thoughts

"It's gorgeous."

Also very important for filtration. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also.

"Overall, very happy."

We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat.

Boutique Betta Final Thoughts

"Mine arrived perfectly!"

I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. 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. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this.

He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner. But even so, the tank is beautiful! Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice.

I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water.

"5 years in to ownership."

The standard filter doesn't work with a SALTWATER aquarium. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. You can't even see the pushed in spots.

Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. The size is in the description is accurate. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. Not a fan of the filtration sponge. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. Clean silicone lines and clear glass.

"I have used the h."

To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. Overall great package and would definitely buy it again and recommend it. The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank. 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.

"It is non-adjustable."

Put in small fish at 1 inch per gallon. The purple coralline algae is growing well. I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more. After some experimentation And constant monitoring I found that the flat Aqueon 7. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it.

"They sent a replacement."

We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. But even so, the tank is beautiful! 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait.

"Tank still usable!"

The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks. It came quickly, and was easy to set up. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape. The instructions are maybe two pages.

"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.

"He seems happy."

I am especially fond of the raised base. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! I do 1 drop per two gallons 3x a week for first few months. I think I am going to get the 28 gallon also for my office area in the loft.

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.
