"Tank arrived intact."

The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours.

"5 years in to ownership."

They are affordable and beautiful and well made. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. 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. Should survive the shipping process just fine! The longest delay was my downloading invoice. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater.

"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.

"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.

"Easy read."

Not a fan of the filtration sponge. The aquarium came very well packaged and undamaged. It took less than 10 minutes to get a new light bar shipped out. It came quickly, and was easy to set up. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks.

"Very well made."

Just do your homework and don't overload this tank. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. I have a lot of freshwater tanks, but this is my 1st attempt at saltwater. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape.

"Absolutely luv it."

I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. Still waiting for the silicone to cure. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense.

Dennerle 5903 Final Thoughts

"I love this tank."

Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks.

"Absolutely beautiful."

The most serious issue thus far is the light bar. The instructions are maybe two pages. He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner. I had a coworker who also likes fish helping me and we had it together in 15 minutes. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. I still keep it as a hospital tank.

"Easy read."

I have a lot of freshwater tanks, but this is my 1st attempt at saltwater. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. The size is in the description is accurate. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started.

"I really love it."

After the foam is in I put the gravel in. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. I will update if I have any issues. I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing.

"I shut mine off."

I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad.

  • GloFish Aquarium Kit Fish Tank with LED Lighting and Filtration Included
  • INCLUDES ALL THE ESSENTIALS: This 5 gallon kit includes a seamless, crescent-shaped tank, Tetra Whisper Bio-Bag Filter Cartridge, black canopy with convenient feeding hole and energy-efficient blue LED lighting.
  • BLUE LED LIGHTS: Hidden blue LED lights are incorporated into the hood, giving your GloFish fluorescent fish an exciting and uniquely fluorescent look.
  • INTERNAL FILTRATION: The filter pulls water from the aquarium and pushes it through the filter cartridge, where the dense, dual-sided mesh catches debris and waste.
  • INCLUDES HOOD: Sleek black hood reduces evaporation and helps keep fish from jumping.
  • EXPERIENCE THE GLO: GloFish fluorescent fish and products create a complete underwater fluorescent experience.

"Very sturdy."

It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. Clean silicone lines and clear glass. Nothing to complain about with this tank at all. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. Not a fan of the filtration sponge.

DREAMDEALS So Good First Impressions

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

I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. The instructions are maybe two pages.

  • DreamDealsSG 100x Tourmaline Balls for Freshwater Aquarium Tank. Mineral Supplement Substrate. Live Shrimp Food, Betta Fish Food, and Crayfish Food. Water Conditioner for Freshwater Shrimp etc.
  • Vibrant health: Just like vitamins, minerals and pH balanced water for humans, your Shrimp, Bettas, Crayfish and Snails also need those things for bright colors, healthy breeding, molting and play! So, when you add DDSG Mineral Balls to your tank you’re giving your fishy friends, the best of health!
  • How do they work? Out in the wild, cherry shrimp, ghost shrimp, amano shrimp, freshwater fish and all other water-lovin’ life are constantly exposed to pH balanced, mineral water from earth’s rocks – with natural bacteria. This is how they molt, breed and maintain healthy vibrancy. Our organic tourmaline is a natural rock with over 30 minerals to keep your tank balanced just like those wild waters.
  • Size and quantity: This is the most cost effective pack you’ve found on your search. Chances are you have at least one 10 gallon fish tank (but commonly 20 gallon tank, or 50 gallon). And because you’ll add one ¼ inch ball per gallon, you’ll need enough for every tank! So this 100 pack makes perfect sense.
  • Copper-free! Of course you may have some nerite snails and other friendly things in your shrimp tank, so you’ll love knowing each tourmaline ball is copper-free! And because they’re natural and pH balanced they keep your aquarium crystal clear, free from impurities, ammonia and hold a stable pH balance. And because they’re so mineral rich, your aquatic plants will get the nutrients they need, too.
  • Calcium-enhanced and more: DDSG Mineral Supplement beads contain 30 minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, sodium, boron, manganese and more. It’s like a daily dose of Spirulina for our splashy pals! Suited for freshwater aquarium snails, betta tank, freshwater shrimp, live crayfish and goldfish. So, feed them well, keep them clean, and supplement with DDSG Minerals so they can dazzle you for years!
