Rated 5 out of 5 by betta2234 Great lid
Awesome lid. I purchased one for my 10 gallon tank as a top for my new betta sorority so that non of the girls would jump out, and it has done its job. Super easy to setup, it accommodates extra things like filters great, as it comes with a plastic strip that you can cut to make it the size of your filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by merksy65 good product
I had just setup my 55 gal tank and the original hood and glass where messed up so I bought 2 23"x11 Glass Tops to allow maximum light through the top of my tank.
I knew the space between the side and center divider was 23.5" so i was concerned about the glass falling into the tank but this kit comes with 2 slide on spacers that fill a gap either side, you can push them on tight for a 1/8th gap or loosen them up to about a 1/2" gap.
the utility plate was a little tricky to install because of the tight fit, I sat the hinge on my lap and used the palm of my hand to tap on the edge starting at one corner and moving across to the other, it is about 3/4" shorter then the glass so if you're running hose or electrical cord out of the tank from either corner take this into account during setup, I didn't need to cut out sections for filters, hoses or cords but it looks like you may need to use a hacksaw or jigsaw to cut the desired holes.
My tank is 12" deep from edge of the front and back lip so this did come up about 3/4" short which doesn't bother me because of the hoses and gang valves I have hanging off the back of my tank.
Once installed condensation built up on the glass immediately and the water temp rose from 72 to 83 degrees (No fish in my tank as yet so don't panic).
I turned the heater down so it's all good again, i can imagine how much water is lost through evaporation over 24 hours.
The stick on handle works good for now, I am doing a lot of chemical testing right now so the handle is getting a pretty good work out, hopefully the hinges can hack the pace too, time will tell.

by Anna94 Really nice product! Highly recommend!
I meant to buy the Aqueon Glass Top, but this was the only one they had in stock at the time so I bought this one. I am not sorry I bought it; it looks really nice on my aquarium and it makes it much easier to do maintenance on my tank. I recommend this top to anyone looking for a nice replacement hood for their fish tank.
