MARINELAND® 10 Gallon BioWheel LED Aquarium Kit
Tank dumped all its water overnight. HUGE MESS! I was suspicious of its quality out of the box but didn’t follow my gut. I’m writing this review so you can be encouraged to inspect the quality of the seals in the corners. You can tell that it is poorly sealed. Trust me, you do NOT want 10 gallons of dirty fish water released into your home.
I suggest Marineland take a hard look into their quality controls at the manufacturing site.

Maintenance free, crystal clear aquatic home.
Great customer service! After nearly a year suddenly my LED light would only work on blue. I called Marineland customer service and they sent me a free LED replacement light immediately. My 20 gallon tank is in an open area and because there are no braces on the corners of the glass, like my aquarium tanks years ago had, it gives an illusion that the fish seem to be swimming free of any container. If my water level gets too low I can hear a very slight trickle sound, but as long as the water level is kept up the pump is silent. I am very pleased with everything about this 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.
