LED Freshwater and Saltwater Aquarium Kits is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 99.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely satisfied After comparing with the competition I bought the 20 gallon aquarium kit at PetSmart in January, 2018. It was definitely the best value. 8 months later I am completely satisfied. The water stays crystal clear. The water temperature is always right on. The light is on a timer and works fine. I am having great success with low light plants like Java Fern and Anubia. It took quite a while, (6 weeks) to get the water acclimated and then it happened almost overnight. So be patient. The only problem is I wish I got a bigger one! I will probably get a 55 gallon kit soon and it will be Marineland..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need to be able to replace hood! I purchased the 24" kit for my son several years ago, and he has enjoyed it. But the hood has been a weak point: it breaks and the light cover is fragile. I replaced the light without the cover, since they were unavailable, and lost the light ($49!) quickly. I lost all my plants because of the lack of light. I would like to replace the hood and filtration system, but the parts, especially the entire hood, are unavailable. Please make the parts available so we can get back to enjoying our aquarium!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tank top frame I had purchased this tank about a month ago and love the tank, "20 gal" tall. I am cycling now wich had just cycled yesterday. The water was a little low and i observed that the water line was not level on the left side of the tank. So after further inspection i had come to the conclusion that the back left corner had been raised up at a gradual tilt from left to right. "My stand is level front and side". The top black frame is not properly installed, in return is causing my bio wheel to not spin freely due to the tilt throwin the HOB filter off kilter. So to sum it all up there is a fuctional and cosmetic issue. But i think this is a nice looking tank. It has its pros and cons. If i end up moving the tank then there will be an eye sore with the water not level on the left side and along the back. Hope Marineland will resolve this issue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from To much open space on hood by filter I don't like all the open area in the back of the hood by the filter...there is about an inch open on both sides of the power filter. Hood was suppose to have plastic pieces that could be taken out if a bigger filter was needed perforated pieces...my hood did not..my snails could crawl out of the tank.,replacement hood was the same as the first.no perforated plastic pieces in the back!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 38g bowed front Aquarium I bought this tank a little over a week ago. I love it! BUT when I took the hood out of the box that it came in it was cracked! I have tried to contact marineland with there email support. It said they would get back in 24 hrs time. Never heard a word from them. Great tank, but not great for customer service.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tank itself is great... the rest meh I've had the 38 gallon bowfront kit for a year. The filter that comes with the kit is undersized for that size tank. I've ended up supplementing with two more sponge filters and recently switched to a different, more powerful filter altogether. From the start, the heater never worked properly. Thankfully my fish are rather warm-water tolerant, but I could never get the tank below 80. (Compared to every other tank in the room that stays at 78.) And the lid. This canopy is a nightmare. Putting it together was a nightmare. The glass wasn't cut correctly. It's cracked. Nothing about the lid has made me happy. For the good: The LED strip is great for low-light plants. I have anubias and swords growing no problem. It's also a REALLY gorgeous tank. And it's at a good price point for size tank it is. Just don't expect much from the peripherals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some disappointing features We bought this kit almost a month ago. First the filter died ..... PetSmart replaced it. So far it has been functioning as it should.Then a few days later, we were out for the day and the heater malfunctioned, heating the water to 98 degrees. Needless to say we lost several fish. We replaced the heater with a higher quality heater at our expense. This was upsetting. The light and hood seem to be ok. Time will tell.The aquarium also seems to be ok. Time will tell.

I have the 38-gallon starter kit. What is the long piece of plastic that comes with the lid? How is it to be used? It fits the remaining space between the glass cover and the tank edge? It it meant to be trimmed to fit the size of the take after the filte

Asked by: missmollie76
That is called the backstrip. Yes, it is meant for you to cut to fit filter systems, etc., along the back of the tank. BREX

I have a 38 Gallon bowfront I purchased a year ago. The two panels of glass on one side are separating. It leaks from the corner. I have a half full tank because I’m worried. 

Asked by: Napoli
Please call our Care Team immediately for help. 1-800-322-1266. You will need your receipt and built by code (off of the tank), and probably photos of the area. BREX

What is the LED light power in watt for "Marineland® 38 Gallon Aquarium Starter Kit"? People said for good plant growth, we need at least 1 watt per gallon. Thank you

Asked by: Msky02
First, LED does not equate to fluorescent lighting. The old way of determining how much light is needed for a planted tank was the number of watts for a fluorescent light. This really only gives you how much energy the light uses, and tells nothing about the spectrum. You need a 6500 Kelvin light, regardless of whether it is fluorescent or LED. This light is only 6000 Kelvin and is basically for a natural daylight appearance to the tank. Some low light plants such as anubias or java fern do fine with it, but it is not a "plant light" per se. BREX

I have a 20 Gallon kit, and my LED has died. Is there a replacement to get for it? Also, can you give me alternatives for the hood?

Asked by: mohmir
Yes, the LED Light is the proper replacement for it. Alternatives to the hood would be a glass canopy with a strip light. http://a.co/127xxaS http://www.marineland.com/Products/aquarium-fish-tank-stands-canopies/Glass-Canopies.aspx BREX

Will the penguin 350b fit in the 29 gallon hood?

Asked by: Hobbs25
Yes, it will, if you cut out the extra area to the right of the original cutout. It may overpower that size tank, however. BREX
