CJ, if you're asking me, the answers are:

Size ------- Length x Depth x Height
10 Gallon – 20 ¼” x 10 ½” x 12 ½” (x3)
20 Gallon – 24 ¼” x 12 ½” x 16 ½” (x1)
29 Gallon – 30 ¼” x 12 ½” x 18 ½” (x1)
55 Gallon – 48 ¼” x 12 ¾” x 20 ¾” (x2)

If you're asking Guppygirl101, the answer will be:

10 Gallon – 20 ¼” x 10 ½” x 12 ½”

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.

Here's the solution I found for my 25 Gal.:

The first one on the list is 20 inches. You can call or email them to ask for the specific dimensions.

Need a lil help

Hey everyone. I'm a grad student and just purchased this because I enjoy my fish bowls and haven't had an aquarium since I was a kid.


So I purchased this, Aqua Culture 10 gallon model because it fits the starving grad student budget... anyway it works fine, but I can't seem to get the light to fit on the aquarium with the filter on. There is a big plastic piece that sorta looks like it can be "broken" off... am I missing something really easy?

thanks a bunch.

Most hoods have pre-scored knock outs along the back. That allows you to snap off some of the plastic so that you have enough room for cords or filters but don't leave the back completely open.

I have had the 10 gallon Aqua Culture kit for almost 2 months now, and last week I came to work (it's on my desk top) to find it had leaked all over the place. I found the source of the leaking, and patched it up with super glue, only to have another leak show itself on the other side of the tank. Over the next WEEK, I kept covering leaks only to have another one spring up somewhere else, until yesterday I came to work and the water leakage had reached an all-time high. My WHOLE DESK was covered in water, even my keyboard, mouse, monitor, etc. Luckily everything was fine, but it was quite a pain to clean up. I went to Petco and bought a 10 gallon Aqueon tank, and now that I have the two side by side, the Aqua Culture tank is SIGNIFICANTLY SMALLER than the Aqueon I bought. They both said they were 10 gallons, but the Aqueon seems to be TWICE the size! My advice is to stay away from the Aqua Culture kit - it is very affordable and convenient, but not so convenient once it's leaked all over the place and been a complete frustration.

The conditioner and food are Tetra brand, I believe.

Anyway, I looked up Aqua Culture on the internet; couldn't find much. They don't have a website or anything, yet they claim to be America's #1 seller? So I was wondering if they are a decent brand.
Just wanted to agree with the changing out the incandescent with fluorescent. I have actually paid ($20) for an incandescent hood for that. And $30 for a tank and hood is a good price. Just replace the incandescent with the spiral pig tail fluorescent bulbs (~$5/two bulbs)

You might also take a look at the link in my signature (or here if you can't see the signature: the beaslbob build ) . I have used that on may 10 gallons over the years. No need for the filter and water conditioner with that. All you need is the tank and hood plus inexpensive substrate and the fluorescent bulbs.

my .02

maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.

have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.

With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)
