how to set up pump onPF 10
I'm not sure I understand the question, but essentially, you hang the filter on the back of the tank, filter box outside, and only the intake tube inside. The spillway hangs over the frame of the tank. Fill with water, plug it in, and insert the intake tube and impeller assembly into the right hand side. Once it is going, slide the filter cartridge into the left hand side.

I bought the Tetra 20 gallon aquarium kit. The left and right sides of the aquarium sit on top of the screws of my stand, which are slightly raised and won't go down any further. Will there be a problem with the tank's two sides sitting on top of screws?
That does not sound like a safe position for the tank, but we would need to see a picture of it to be sure. The screws are not going to be enough to support a tank full of water. If you can email a picture to us directly, even a couple of pictures, that would be great. Email us at email@example.com. Put FOR BREX in the subject line. I'd like to see a picture of the top of the stand without the aquarium, one of the aquarium sitting on it, from the side, and one from the front. Thanks.

I have a ten gallon tank that I received through pets in the classroom for my classroom 2 years ago. The led lights have gone out. What model is the hood replacement for the 10 gallon kit tank.
The 20 x 10 LED Aquarium Hood would be the replacement. You could also buy the LED Aquarium Light if all you need is a new light.

My heater doesn't work. Does this have to do with the fact it was plugged before the 15minute interval?
Possibly, but how do you know it doesn't work? In the summer time, heaters do not turn on as often, so make sure you are using a thermometer to check the water temperature, and then check it against the room temperature as well. Also, make sure the heater is turned so you can view the area where the light turns on. If you continue to have issues with it, please call us at 1-800-526-0650.

Why blue led lights on these marinaland tank kits.
These are Tetra branded kits. We put blue and white lights on most of them, and blue only on any kits that are targeted for glofish. The blue lights make a great lunar glow at night, and bring out the colors of glofish.

My 10 gallon Color Fusion tank has been up for 5 days. I have noticed the water began getting hazy yesterday. I have 15 small fish in the tank. I feed the Tetra flake food. What should I dp.
There are many causes for cloudy water. Overfeeding your fish can cloud your water as the uneaten food is allowed to decompose. At each feeding you should feed no more than what your fish can eat in one to two minutes. Overstocking the tank can cause cloudy water too. Excess waste, like excess food, gives of ammonia and nitrites. You should have 1 gallon of water per 1 inch of tropical fish. Have 2 gallons of water per 1 inch of goldfish.
Or, your aquarium could be experiencing what is known as "new tank syndrome." When you set up a new aquarium or when you carry out a large water change, it is very natural for your water to become cloudy as part of the systems normal biological cycle. The reasons for this are fluctuations in the nitrogen cycle, and the release of gasses in solution resultant to an increase in water temperature. A water change of 50% or more will restart the cycle.
We would recommend that you add SafeStart to the aquarium and that will help the Nitrogen Cycle process. This will clear up on it's own.

Looking for led light bar for Tetra ColorFusion aquarium kits. I have the 6 inch bar that came with aquarium. Looking for a 12 inch bar that will light aquarium better.
Thank you for your inquiry. However, we do not have the ColorFusion LED in a longer light bar. The best recommendation for a larger light bar would be the 17" Hidden LED light bar by Marineland. This would allow you to have white and blue LEDs available to change from a daylight to night light setting.

How do I change the batteries in my 6.5 gallon semi hex led aquarium lights? They don't work anymore.
We do not make a 6.5 gallon semi hex led aquarium kit, so I'm not sure how you would change the batteries. Our led lights all have power adaptors and do not use batteries.

How do you adjust the thermostat for the Tetra LED 20 gallon aquarium?
The heater will have a + sign, a - sign and a triangular mark on the top of it. The triangular mark represents 78 degrees Fahrenheit. Set it there, place it in the tank, unplugged for about 15 minutes, then plug it in. Give it several hours to adjust, monitoring the thermometer (separate item in your tank) periodically. Adjust towards the + sign to raise the temp and towards the - sign to lower it, accordingly, one click at a time.
Give half an hour or so in between each adjustment before adjusting it again.

I have the 55 g what is is the watts or lumins the leds are?. I was answered back in kelvin.which is a unit of temp measurement. wondering about plants and there requirements..
Watts are a measure of energy only, and will not give you the information you seek for live plants. Live plants require 6500 Kelvin. This is the only measurement used in regards to live plants. For corals, PAR and Lux are also used. Wattage is not used for any of them. This hood is NOT suitable for live plants at only 5900 Kelvin.

I just purchased a 5 gallon aquarium kit with LED lights. The instructions say to "clip to the front frame of the aquarium". We can't figure out how to clip it on, and I'm afraid I will break the clamp. Help!
It basically just pushes on. It is easiest to install by pushing one corner of it onto the frame, while it is angled at the frame, instead of straight on.

How to clean my aquarium
At least once a month, take a gravel vacuum and a bucket, get a siphon going, then vacuum the gravel, remove 30% of the water from the tank. Wipe the inside of the sides of the tank with an algae pad, then refill the tank with conditioned water at the proper temperature. Check all equipment, and do any maintenance necessary on it, such as changing media, cleaning impellers, etc.

LED lights that came with 3 gallon tank harmful to fish?
I have a 3 gallon LED bubbling tank and I was wondering if the lights are just for day time or can be on at night. 2 of my 3 fish seem to be hiding at night to be in the dark away from the light. So just wondering if I should turn off the lights at night.
No, the lights are not harmful, the fish are probably just resting, which is normal. The room is dark enough to create a night time effect, and fish normally find a secured place to rest, so that they will be safe while they do so.

Can i get some specs on the LED lights?
I am looking at the 20Gal which has 5 LED modules, I'm just wondering what kind of plant life it could support.
what is the Kelvin rating?
what is the PAR rating?
I have some plants that require "strong" light conditions (whatever that means) will these lights support plants with high intensity light needs?
These are basic lights for a simple "day" light. Kelvin would be around 5900K. We do not have a PAR rating on them, but they are not recommended for live plants. You can supplement them with the Hidden Accent LED, however, which snaps onto the top frame of the tank,

Watt usage for 29gallon aquarium kit
How many watts does each use. The filter, heater, and LED lights in the 29 gallon aquarium kit.
The heater is 100 watts, the hood is approximately 1 watt per module, and the filter is 6 watts.

Does the 16 inch hood come with the cutouts already out or are they still in for the customer to remove?
I have fish that like to jump so I can't have a hood that comes with holes already in it. This would be the only type of hood for a 5 gallon that fit where my tank is placed.
They are already cut out for the filter and for a feeding hole. I would recommend a glass canopy. These are flat too, and rest along the tank edges. They have a plastic strip you attach to the back. You can cut out whatever space you need for a filter, etc, or leave it whole if your filter is submersible. Item number is 33160. This is not a common size sold in many local fish stores, so you may need to go to www.thatpetplace.com or www.petswarehouse.com to order it.

Glofish led light strand?
I have the 30 gallon tetra led kit,. Are there Glofish led lights available that fit the hood for this aquarium?
Not that fit the hood, no. We do make Glofish LED light sticks that clip to the frame of the tank for tanks up to 55 gallons. See link: http://www.tetra-fish.com/Products/glofish-blue-light-aquariums-products/glofish-led-light-stick.aspx. I would recommend the 20 gallon size one for your tank as a supplement to the one you already own.

You would need to call or email in directly with a copy of your receipt and information. If you do not have the receipt, we would need the lot code off of the led module.

How to outfit my 10 Gal Tetra Kit with plant growing lights
I just bought a 10 gallon tetra kit which comes with a low lid and 3W LED. 3W is not enough to sustain my 10 gallon planted tank but I'm not sure the bet course of action. If I take off the lid and buy a clip light that is stronger then I run the risk of the fish jumping out or the snail crawling out. Can't see to find a clear cover that ill work. HELP! What are my options? I love the set-up just want to keep the plants alive
Wattage is not a good basis for determining what plants need. All that tells us is the amount of energy the unit will use. You need lighting that is 6500 Kelvin, which that unit is not.
You can add the Marineland HIdden LED and have the 6500 Kelvin and tons of light for most any type of plant. It is our product and designed to fit under the hoods.
