Will the hex 5 hood replace a hex 7 hood?
Yes, it sure would; the only difference was the height of the tanks.

My lens for this tank system has broken almost in half. Do you sell the lens for this hood?
I see below that you mention a version of this hood that does not require a lens. Does the hood on this page require a lens?
No, unfortunately it does not. This tank has been discontinued for a while, and most parts are no longer available. This hood did not have the lens cover.

Will this fit the Corner 5? My existing hood started smoking and smells like it shorted out. I love the tank and I'm hoping I can find a replacement.
Unfortunately, no, it will not. That hood fits the Eclipse Hex 5. We have not made the Corner 5 in a few years, and the light hood is not available any longer.

Troubleshooting light vs. hood?
We have the hex 5 and after replacing the bulb, the hood light still won't come on. Is there a way to troubleshoot to see if it is the hood before I spend $35 on a new one (we only spent $50 on the aquarium, so replacing a part for $35 seems really high)?
Short of taking the hood to a lighting/electrical store for analysis, there is unfortunately not much other troubleshooting to try other than first changing out the bulbs to dismiss the potential as a defective bulb issue.

Need the lens cover
I see that you no longer carry the lamp/ lens cover for the eclipse hex 5. I am wondering what is used in the hex 5 kit that is still for sale in stores like Petsmart? Do these new kits have a lamp protector or is the light fixture designed differently?
The ones that are still in Petsmart have not changed, and are the same kit. We have had two versions of that kit on the market for over 15 years. One has a lens cover, one does not. They have different bulbs.
We will be coming out with new versions of this kit and some of the other small Eclipse kits soon.

Do you still carry the 5 gallon hex hoods?
Yes, we do. See link: http://www.marineland.com/Products/aquarium-parts/Aquarium-Kit-Parts/Eclipse-Systems-Parts/Lighting-and-Lamps/Light-Hood-for-Eclipse-System-5-Hex.aspx

I have a eclipse hex 5 and the pump stopped working. Do you sell the replacement ?
I see the replacement hood and a different type pump being sold as a replacement. It looks much different than what came with the aquarium. Thank you
We only have one pump we sell for the Hex 5, and it is on our site, as well as available through others. Here is a link:

Is there any way to affix LED lighting in the hood of my 5 gallon Eclipse Hex?
I have two tanks and am looking to match... can the Eclipse be updated somehow to house LED lighting in or near its hood?
Not at this time, no.

looking for a hood that fit a 30 gallon hexagon tank
We have never made a 30 gallon hexagon. And, unfortunately, we are not making hex tanks any longer. Nor, do we have hoods.

Wrong size tank hood referenced
I have a 3 Gallon hex tank as I mentioned before. Does the eclipse 5 hood fit a 3 gallon tank? I would think the light fixture would be available? Do you know how to contact the manufacturer?
We do not make a 3 gallon hex. We used to make a 5 gallon Eclipse hex. In either case, our 5 gallon hood will not fit your 3 gallon tank. If you have a 3 gallon hex, we do not know who the manufacturer would be, but it is not us.

Does this come with the access door? The pic looks like it doesn't. Thanks.
No, it does not. You are correct.

Model PFES O5HX 3 gallon Marineland hex tank
Is the light fixture available separate from the hood ? The only problem is the switch is broken on the light.
If you have the Eclipse Hex 5, which is a 5 gallon, the hood is the only way to purchase the light switch.

Does this include a light
Needs to fit a 3 gallon hexagon tank. Hood model PFES O5HX
That is the hood and electrical portion for our Eclipse Hex 5 gallon tank/system. It will not fit a 3 gallon hex.
