acrylic aquarium
first one i received was obviously dropped, despite being well packed, and was cracked. petsupplies took care of it quickly, had it picked up, and another sent. it arrived ok but without the light enclosure. another call and it was sent out/received.light enclosure is just that, no light or electrical parts,just black textured kydex plastic. keys into the cutouts in the tank top and it locks in. i picked up a led light, cut slots in each end of the enclosure, and slid the led light into it. it works and look good.front of tanks tough t clean of algae. mr clean magic eraser work and do not scratch. magnet for plastic will scratch it. cutout in tank top make it difficult to reach. full tank does bow out a bit as it is 1/4" thick only.overall, looks nice, sale price was a good deal. scratches easier than glass, lighter to put into place, harder to clean, rounded front corners look nice. if it lasts and does not craze, i will be happy. black back hides dark fish!

acrylic so thin it bows!
The front and back are considerably bowed under the weight of the water. 1/4" acrylic was used, they needed to use 3/8 or 1/2" for better strength.Took 20 plus days to get a tracking number. Sent an empty light housing.

Great tank
Excellent tank, well worth the price. I was never going to use the light fixture that came with it. I bought 48" LED light and just using the acrylic cover from the light fixture that came with the tank to cover the top openings.

great aquarium if you can use it...
Beautiful craftsmanship, very nice product, but it is still empty on a corner of my living room...why? Because it is almost impossible to get a light kit that fits the hood, CFL lighting kid has been discontinued on every store I was able to find...and it took me 2 weeks and several phone calls to get a decent stand that fits ....the openings on the top are very narrow....a 55galon should hole bigger and better decoration, but due to the reduced space to fit something mid size my option are very limited...in summary a great product with very little to none option to accessory it...

What is the light like? Are the corners rounded?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The light is a black rectangle housing only. The corners are not rounded, & it does not come with a bulb. There is no way to secure the light down so it just sits on top. We ended up buying a whole new light system & not using the one that comes with it.
Can you so any pictures of the hood?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The holes consist of three op ennings. There is the main cut out of the acrylic baceiling in the dead center that is shaped like a rounded rectangle. The rectangle is about half the lent of the width of the tank basically in the dead center of top. The rectangle is horizontal. There are 2 other much narrower openings on the ceiling of the tank. The two line up with the walls of the corner you would put it in. Narrow but wide eno f o r a hanging filter no problem along with your wires. You probably want to invest the 40 dollars or so on the cheapestimated dremmel. Large accessories can't all fit through openings. ALL OPENINGS COME WITH optional COVERS THAT ARE A PIECE OF ACRYLIC THAT SLIDES INTO A BLACK BOX THE SAME SIZE AS CENTER HOLE. YOU CAN COVER HOLE WITH JUST ACRYLIC BUT I THINK THAT LOOKS UGLY. IT LOOKS NICE WHEN YOU slide acrylic peace into the black brick shaped holster this will prevent most evaporation and looks like a light. (The old fashioned ones that came with beginner 2.5 gallon talks. Your light will typically replace. Basically, BUY A HOOD IF YOU CAN FIND ONE NOT 1000 DOLLARS
Does it have two cut outs for HOB filters or just one? Thank you.
Vadim on Mar 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes two large, 16" long by 1 3/4" wide. There is also two circle holes in each corner 1 3/4 in diameter. The back edge is just under 3/4" thick.
