Rated 2 out of 5 by TM01 Terrible product, excellent service
I gave this 2 stars for service. Product is about 1 to 2 stars. Our first tank broke (luckily no fish yet) but Marineland service took care of us. Then we found the worst part of the kit: the LED light bar. I have gone through 4 (maybe 5, I can't remember) of them and they all went bad within a few months. One only made it about 3 weeks. We have a surge protector and power is clean so the only thing that I can think of that would damage the LED are the minor splash-back droplets from the filter system. That being said, the plastic screen should prevent this from being a problem. Again, service was excellent and replaced the LED multiple times. I'm finished with this LED/hood combo and will look for another.

Rated 2 out of 5 by eestcoast45 cheap
The top is cheap plastic that has snap off pieces, like plastic models, in the filter assembly location. Mine just doesn't close properly as it is flimsy plastic. The light works well. They use a lot of silicone to seal up the corners and pretty sloppy.

Bought the 29 gallon kit as a replacement for my tired old aquarium. When I completed the setup, I realized that the cover over the light fixture was cracked in half. I didn't want to even try to go back to the retailer so I called the 800# for Marineland. They were so accommodating and sent a replacement that day. I received it within 5 days of my original purchase. I have had several of their filters over the years and prefer them to any other retailer. They sell a very good product at a reasonable price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Samuel05 Good kit, HORRIBLE heater
Filter is good, 200gph is a bit high. I replaced it with a tetra ex30. heater shot up to (God-only-knows) degrees one night, I lost two fish. the next day another one. Will never buy their heaters, buy everything else
