LED Lighting and the unique Half Moon shape of these aquariums make a stunning combination! The LED Light provides a natural shimmering effect in the water, is energy efficient and is powered by a low voltage adapter.

Each aquarium has a clear plastic canopy with a feeding hole, and cut outs for the filter. The canopies also help to reduce water evaporation and keep fish inside the aquarium.

What heater is recommended for this 30 gallon half moon?

Since it doesn't come with a filter or heater I need to know what all fits. Is there only 1 opening for the filter or will the heater fit too? Need more details please.
Asked by: CrystalLagoon
Both will fit. We recommend the Penguin 150B for a power filter and the Visi-Therm 150 or Tetra HT-30. Below is more product details for each. Please let me know if you need anything else.

Any plans on creating a better canopy for the 30 gallon half moon aquarium?

It is very hard to clean the tank because every time you go to remove the hood, first you lose the light, second water from the hood gets all over the floor, and third adding new fish is a pain for the same reasons as 1 and 2.
Asked by: stuck
I am sorry to hear this. At this time, there aren't any other design plans for this tank. Thanks.

Emperor 280 and 30 gallon Half Moon

Is there a replacement cover for the 30 gallon half moon that will accomodate the Emperor 280? The filter slot on the cover that came with mine is too small. I bought this filter based on a previous question and I would not like to go through the returns process. Are there other solutions to for this?
Asked by: Pralix
I had problem with original filter leaking. I did not like the idea of it hanging off the back, either. Bought the large Fluval submersible filter and installed at lower third. This has a very tall area of circulation and is adjustable for flow. It was a little more expensive but have had great success with it. There is nothing to leak. You can place it behind a tall plant. You can draw water from the lower areas by placing it low in tank. The only drawback was the opening for the original filter. Used a flat plastic piece to cover that and works well with no splashes or evaporation. It just lays over the opening and is stable. The light just lays there so this is similar to that situation. This also allows the tank to go very close to the wall with enough room for tubes and cords.

I want to purchase the 30 Gallon Half Moon w/LED tank. Can you give me filter suggestions that will fit within the space on the canopy.

Need product suggestions for the 30 Gallon Half Moon LED Light Tank since it does not come as a complete kit. Filter and Heater suggestions.
Asked by: Crystal
The suggested filter had a leak. I went with a submersible and placed in lower third of tank to get good circulation. That leaves opening which I used a plastic piece from another aquarium to cover. It lays on top like the light and keeps evaporation down. Anything flat and plastic would probably work. This also allows the unit to sit way closer to the wall.

Is there/will there be a Day/Night light LED for the 10 gal Half Moon?

I'm looking for an aquarium that perfectly fits a spot, but I also want the Day/Night LED. I was at PetSmart looking and didn't see one, I'm hoping that they just had older models out and that newer ones have the Day/Night.
Asked by: QBert
Hello, The LED that comes with the 10 gallon Half Moon does not have the blue night lights. You can purchase an LED Aquarium light seperately that you could then place on the plastic canopy of the tank. They come with the daytime/nighttime lights.

What protein filter can be used with the 30 gallon half moon tank?

Asked by: Julia
Hello, The SeaClone 100 protein skimmer is the only one we offer that will fit. You will not have room for another type of filter if you do use the skimmer because the acrylic canopy has a rigid hole cut-out that is only about 8.5 inches by 3.5 inches. There may be a glass canopy available in the future. The SeaClone is from our Instant Ocean brand products. InstantOcean.com

I just purchased a Half Moon 20 gallon tank from PetSmart (after I took back the 10 gallon to upgrade).

The 10 gallon kit came with a filter and the 20 gallon tank does not. I purchased the one the salesperson recommended and it is too big. Keep in mind I will be going back to purchase one from the same store. I did not see any MarineLand Fliters there. Do you have any suggestions?
Asked by: PaulaM
We would recommend the Penguin 100 and the Whisper EX20 for this system. The cut-out for the acrylic canopy meausres: 5.906" x 2.638" The filter you choose must fit this opening on the acrylic canopy. There may be a glass canopy available in the future. For the 30 gallon Half Moon the cut-out is 8.5" x 3.5" and we would recommend the Penguin 150 or Whisper EX30.

Any idea of future larger half moon aquariums coming?

I really like the look of the 30 gallon, but hesitate to go with anything smaller than a 40 gallon.
Asked by: ArizonaGreg
Hello, We are glad you enjoy the Half Moon design. There is currently no information on larger sizes being offered. We do offer the Euro curved front Aquariums in larger sizes. The 46 gallon one is item NV10460 with black trim or 11461 in oak trim. There is also an 80 gallon item 10805 in black trim. These offer the curved front design like the Half Moons, just not as rounded.

Is the half Moon OK for saltwater

Asked by: BobI
Hello, Are you referring to the glass Half Moon aquariums? We also have a very small 3 gallon Half Moon tank that would not really be advisable for saltwater. Assuming you mean the former, yes you can do a saltwater set-up. The kit currently only comes with an acrylic top that has some small opening in it for the heater and filter. You can use a filter if it will fit this size opening. We understand there may be a glass canopy available sometime in the future. The lighting is a small LED light that will not offer sufficient light for corals, but if you have fish only that would be fine. You could upgrade to a stronger light but it may be best to wait until a glass hood is available to do that.

How do I remove adhesive from inside the aquarium.

There is left over scotch tape adhesive from where the paper product labeling was attached in the tank. How do I remove the adhesive? I am afraid of using chemicals in the tank. I don't feel comfortable using a blade on the aquarium and besides I think it would be hard given the fact that th glass is curved. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Try a different timer. A timer just cuts off electricity so there shouldn't be an electrical flow when the timer is not engaged. Perhaps try and dig up a Christmas light timer somewhere and see if it works.
