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,

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.

LED light replacement
I have the same problem that another customer inquired about -- My LED bulb went out on the 5-gallon setup. How do I get a replacement? Mimi answered the customer that an email will be sent with instructions. Please send me the instructions too.
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.

How high is a tetra 55 gal tank with hood/
I'm having a cabinet maker build a bookcase/stand for my Tetra 55 gallon LED tank. I need to know the height of the assembled unit including the hood.
Without the hood, the tank is 20-13/16". The hood will add approximately one more inch. You will need additional space in order to remove the hood for cleaning. Also, our hoods come with clips to attach it to the tank, so you can lift it and it stays lifed, during water changes. This would require approximately 10" for maneuverability.
Please keep in mind that custom stands/cabinets, reduce the warranty on the tank to one year on the tank only.

i need light.
It does not work. My fish are in the dark we
24/7 I like to watch my fish and .y snails.
This is not the proper forum for warranty issues; you need to call or email us directly so we may assist you if the tank is newly purchased. 1-800-526-0650. The light should definitely NOT be on 24/7. Fish require only 8-12 hours of light, and have to have a night period for rest, just like we do.

what are the marks for on the inside of the hood?
Regarding the tetra colorfusion 10 bubbling kit.
This hood is used in more than one version of our aquariums. In another version, it comes with led modules, rather than a stick. The modules snap into the areas that I think you are inquiring about.

How do I get rid of the cloudy water.
Cloudy water after 24 hrs. of setting up a new aquarium.
Add Tetra Safe Start Plus. You have either added too many fish to the tank or overfed. If you overfed, do a small water change and remove any leftover food. After a few hours has passed, add TSS Plus. It is the cultured bacteria the tank needs to balance and cycle itself. It will clear the water within a short amount of time, such as a day or less.

What temperature is the heater set to?
I am interested in buying a kit but I want to know what the water temperature will be. (I want the 29g because I am unsatisfied with the size of my 2.5g tank)
If you are keeping tropical freshwater fish you want the temperature to be between 76 and 80 degrees, 78 being about ideal. For goldfish, 68-72 is ideal.
