Full acrylic aquarium for the Eclipse® System 5 Hex.
Acrylic Aquarium for Eclipse System 5 Hex is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 5 Gallon Hex I bought this aquarium around 10 years ago. I am still using it. I do have to say that I think the Eclipse System that it came with, (the same as the Eclipse 3), is really not powerful enough for a 5 Gallon Hex. What I did was turn the light part around, put the rectangular piece in the middle, and I am using a Penguin HOB as the filter, much more powerful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Acrylic May not be the best product for you This review is a result of having to shell out $45 for a replacement tank. All of the other pieces of the aquarium are great and work well wirth this tank. However, within a year I noticed that the acrylic had turned quite milky. In spite of doing regular water changes, cleaning with non-abrasive materials, using only the recommended conditioning chemicals, etc., the surface had discolored to the point where the tank is going to have to become a planter or put to some other use. I do believe this was some reaction to the water, as the area under the suction cups for the heater and thermometer are clear as glass. I live in the NW and we have very neutral water, so I cannot bring myself to believe that was the issue. I'm waiting to see if the problem reoccurs with the new tank.

Can you give the dimensions of each side? Like is it 12" across at the widest point (sharp to sharp) or thinnest (straight edge to straight edge).

Just a couple of a questions. Is this just the tank itself? Not including the kit right? Also, is this tank available in glass as well?

Asked by: Eckgirl42
Yes, it is just the tank, and no, it only comes in acrylic, there is no glass version. BREX

Pump won't run

I just cleaned my tank and pump, now the pump won't pump. I have checked everything and it work before I cleaned it what am I doing wron
Asked by: Bigcavs
Did you remove the impeller when you cleaned the pump, and clean it and the inside of the pump or did you just clean the outside of the pump? If you did clean it all, make sure the water level is to the top frame of the tank and make sure you insert the impeller into the cover FIRST, then insert both pieces up into the pump. If you insert the impeller, then put on the cover, it has difficulty priming. BREX
