MARINELAND® 10 Gallon BioWheel LED Aquarium Kit
The good, the bad, and the ugly.
Good: The LED lighting is excellent, much better than previous fluorescent bulbs which needed replacing every 6 or 8 months. As a package this kit is fairly all-inclusive for starting a new or even first tank. Also, the full hood is great for feeding, netting, adding fish, decor, plants, cleaning, and even the water changes.
Bad: Be warned the bio-wheel filter, though superb by design, can be defective resulting in very loud motor noise, which in my case necessitated replacement with a quieter model at extra cost, erasing my savings from buying this kit on sale from petsmart.
Ugly: The seals, though thankfully effective so far, are not inspiring of confidence in product quality, or as pretty as competitors.

We bought the 29 gallon kit end of March, early April. The aquarium cover latch was the first to break, then the heater and now the filter is giving way. So now I get to spend more money on replacements.

I bought a 55 gallon kit a few months ago and Iove it! The LED lights look really good and I love the night LED! The filter is silent and keeps my tank clean.

Nice and simple.
Very nice I must say. Nice hood design, very bright LED lights with cool moon light option, comes with an efficient and powerful (but often noisy) filter. As well as a couple minor things with it. I would say I would recommend this to people who are going to have a simple aquarium.
