Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hood however..... We have had our fish tank set up for almost a couple years and we're happy with the product however, I can't find anywhere that sells the plastic covers that protect the led lights. They are very easy to break when trying to clean them. Do you send out replacements for them?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poorly Designed I have had my tank for about 3 years. It is made of thin plastic. The hinges broke after 3 months. The light fixture is not sealed from the water well and you get condensation in the fixture. The lights lasted until yesterday. (After the hinges I have been VERY careful when handling the hood. Features are good, but poorly designed for longevity.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Entry Level Hood I've had this 10 gallon tank and hood for about 1.5 years now. It's a decent hood for the setup that I have. However, the way the LED lights are set up inside the hood it leaves all 4 corners of the tank a little bit darker. I havent had any issues with this hood other than the acrylic piece that covers the lights cracked. It's a decent hood for someone just beginning in the hobby.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Hood That Looked Good On Paper I thought i had found the perfect solution to make aquarium maintenance easier: a hinged lid system (two 32994 - 24" x 12" ) which would not require removal. Although the feeding hole is a bit larger than I would like, the main flaw is with the light assembly and how it fails to securely affix to the hood. Even having slowly and carefully raised each hood, both units detached from each hood and fell to the floor resulting in damage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from light and cover The light and cover is ridiculous. A flimsy plastic, that warps in the light / heat and cracks, does not keep water from the light. LED's blow way too fast due to water getting in, I am surprised my fish weren't electrocuted. HERE IS A GREAT IDEA, make the light protector better and solid into the hood, the replacements parts, readily available and sizing should be more standard. Probably will be cheaper for me to get a bigger tank , (all inclusive) than replace a hood light. Crazy but true, look at replacing the hood light and "protective cover" before buying. Tank and hood are fine, pump is great as I use 3 in total (bio wheel can not be replaced) After 1 month the wheel filter fell apart, have no idea why it exists, an un-replaceable filter? Live and learn. Filter's and lighting #1 and #2 in importance in keeping fish

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Things do break down, but some ingenuity needed. When I got this canopy 2nd hand, the light just strobed in the morning when turned on by timer. I was in contact with Maineland and was helped very readily. Good service. Then the hinges (plastic) on the canopy broke. Since I had already mounted the background sheet on plywood, I had a base for constructing a wooden hinge alternative. It works great See photos. Very happy with my aquarium setup.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poorly designed I bought this hood to replace one of the old fashioned one and I wish I had kept my old one. It has been only 18 months and the lights wont work. At first they flickered now they hardly come on. I paid too much for this for it to quit working already!
Date published: 2018-03-02
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poorly designed These hood/light combos look and work really good at first. But due to poor design and cheap craftsmanship they do not last. The light is compromised by moisture and fails eventually. For me they didn't even last a year. By the time I was ready to give up on them they were already out of warranty. The replacement light is almost as expensive as the whole unit. I do not wish to have a product that I must replace yearly. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very poor design tank hood and LED lights I purchased this tank kit 55 gallon with the hood and led lights and everything else in the box. I cannot believe how flimsy and poorly designed the hood assembly is. The lights have been a constant issue and I just thought I was having problems but after reading the reviews I guess I am not the only one. For the cost of the setup I would have expected better quality. I too like the light that the fixtures give off but the constant flickering and now the total lack of operation I assume is really stressing the fish out, not to mention irritating my wife.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Working very well Got this for my 29 gallon tank about 2 years ago. Has been working superb ever since. It even holds my penguin 350 very nice and snuggly. I have 3 cats, one of them being on the larger side and this tank hood holds up so well from them jumping to and from it. It is very sturdy. Light is nicely bright, only thing I have to say is it leaves a bit of darkness along the top edges but everything below the light is nicely lit. The blue lights aren't too bright so they're nice to look at without worrying about too much algae growth.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Lights. Poor Quality...Don't last Bought Marineland aquarium set with hood and LED combination day/night light. First light died within 6 months of purchase. Got a replacement light under warranty but that one also didn't last more than a few months before it also died. It's not the bulbs...it's the plug / connector to the light. The plug (male end) and receptacle (female end) both corrode due to exposure to moisture and causes the light to fail. Considering this is a FISH tank and it sits directly on top of WATER one would expect the lights would be designed to be exposed to high humidity, condensation, etc. This is a very poor design and very cheap construction which leads to VERY dissatisfied customers. I will not be purchasing any more Marineland products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad Concept These lights came with the new aquariums, and have been replaced twice already, need another now. These are made to be used on top of aquariums, and doing so, they are EXPECTED to come into contact with water from evaporation, condensation, etc. The only way these last are when I seal the plexiglas on the cover (Which is supposed to be moveable). Once that seal is there for a few months, it deteriorates, and the light takes in the moisture, and begins to fail. Seeing that this light is sold as a combo with new tanks, setting the expectation that they will work together, maybe they should be factory sealed in some permanent way instead of me rigging them up to extend their very short life, only to have them fail when the silicon that I seal it with eventually fails. Seal your product. It's meant to be around water! Here I go again, forced to buy replacements...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LED light doesn’t work We have had this LED hood for almost two years and for the last few months the lights would flicker on and off now they just won’t come on at all. Considering LED’s last for years apon years I don’t know why these quit so soon. Can’t find a replacement at my local stores and online ones cost way too much for it to last another year. Had to rig up a flashlight so my kids can see their fish when the sun is not out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I bought this as a kit for my grandkids for Christmas. The hinges broke right away. Now the switch doesn't work so I have lights sometimes but mostly not. For the price you have to pay, this is crazy. Now I need a new one because I can't seem to find just the light package.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broken hinge bars The bars that clip into the hinges are very cheaply made. I have to remove the lids when cleaning the tank weekly. The hinges do not come out of the clips easily. I cringe at the construction and every week i got to remove them i knew my luck would not hold out. Today, the plastic bars that snap into the hinges both broken. Very poor construction. Cheap plastic. The tank is nice. The lids on my 55 gallon Marineland tank not so much.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from lasted 2 years I got this about two years ago. Now it just strobes... I cant figure out how to get a replacement. from what I can find the replacement cost as much as I spent on the tank. Called the 1800 number and got hung up on.. The clips holding it in place broke off instantly and so you cant even lift the lid with out taking the light out first. what a waste!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great light, Poor Quality Hinges The color of the LED is ok - not as good as incandescent, but still makes the tank look good. But the quality of the hinges is garbage. I only switched to an LED hood to be more energy efficient (I simultaneously changed all of my home lights to LEDs). The hinge that connects the hood to the tank broke after 6 months. Shocked at the poor construction.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't last long On our second light in our 10 gallon tank. They only last a few months before the switch malfunctions. Petsmart doesn't seem to carry them any longer. Looking for another option.
Date published: 2017-07-01
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Light works great, but the 2 hinges broke easy. Love the look of this hood on my tank, and the LED light works great for me. However the hinge system that holds the hood on broke after only about 5 months. They are hinged by a very thin plastic bar on the lid. Now when I open my hood I have to keep it from falling in the water. Pretty disappointing because I have been a Marineland customer for years.

Completely stuck in place no matter what I do. Was just about to plant some aquatic plants in there this afternoon too :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the two light features hate they don't last Love the bright light and then the dumb blue for at night just hate that they don't last long. Had mine for just over a year and go figure it stops working. For a light to cost so much you would expect it to last longer than it does. As nice as this product was in the beginning I don't think I would waist that kind of money on a light like this one again.

Sorry to hear that, but that light has a one year warranty on it only. If you are within the one year, you can call 1-800-322-1266. Without a receipt, they will require the lot code which can be found half way down one long side of the light.

I have one if your 75 gallon tanks. But no hood. What do you recommend? I like the day/night feature of your products. I know your 55 gallon has two separate hoods. Is that possible for the 75 gallon? I can't seem to find any that would fit.

Asked by: Auntgenie
We do not have a LED hood that will fit the 75 gallon. We would recommend a glass canopy instead, with one of the LED strip lights in the 48-60 inch length. Which one would depend on what your tank houses, but typically the Advanced LED works really well for most freshwater fish tanks. BREX

Those dimensions do not match any standard sized aquarium. Aquarium manufacturers tend to round the dimensions to the nearest whole number, so we have no idea what size tank you own. Closest to it is a 15 gallon which is 24-1/4 x 12-9/16 x 12-11/16. So this hood is not likely to work for you. BREX
