I have a Clear 46 gallon SeaClear Bow Front and.... it is one piece acryllic construction with pre cut holes for air line tubing (2), heater, filter and light. A light fixture is not the same as a hood. A hood is removable for cleaning and the light fixture sits on top of it. After a while the heat from the light fixture warps/melts acryllic around edge of pre cut hole making the light fixture sit crooked on top of the tank.

Not exactly. There is a black fixture/light hood, not a full hood, that sits on top. The top is transparent acrylic panel with access, heater and filter cutouts. The light hood does not come with a bulb.

The tanks are the same except for the back panel background of the tank which is clear on the clear tank, and colored black on the black tank. The clear one allows you to buy a separate background that can be applied to the back of the tank, while the black one is a solid color.

what is the best way to feed the fish?

when I put the food in the tank, I have to take off the light and drop in the food. As soon as I place the food in the tank it gets sucked into the filter system.

I don't take the light off the top to feed my fish. I put a pinch or so in the heater hole and it doesn't get sucked up the filter and I have a Marineland Penguin power filter 150 which filters 150 gallons of water an hour. I have a SeaClear 46 gallon clear acryllic bow front aquarium.

Not including the airline holes in each of the back corners of the top, there are 4 other holes. 1 is circular for the heater cord(s) and is 1 7/8". There is a long rectangular cut for a power filter at the rear center measuring 2 1/8" x 15". Finally, there are 2 rectangular cuts at the center of the top measuring 13"x7 1/8". I made 2 acrylic covers for these larger cutouts using the clear bottom of the plastic hood that came with the tank as a template. Using .220 thick acrylic from lowes, they cut 2 rectangles 14.5" x 8.75". I then had them cut 4 strips, 1"x 6.5". Using LocTite GO2 Glue, I cemented the strips to one side of the larger pieces to stop them from sliding across the tank when in place. I have my Marineland LED light (36-48") mounted over those.

How do you like the tank after months of use?

I've had glass aquariums most of my life. I am curious about acrylic but am apprehensive about the "trend" in aquariums. I'm considering taking the leap but worry about how it compairs to glass. Is it easy to clean?

Have had two acrylic tanks now, easy to clean and IMO better looking. I have had two SeaClear tanks and they have been great. Stick with quality brands. The light on the tank is my old one from a smaller tank so that's why it is sagging.

I personally would not use this tank for turtles. The top is mostly enclosed with a 5 x 24 inch opening. This would be awfully small in dealing with turtles. Also, this is an acrylic aquarium which is known to scratch easily. Better and cheaper to get glass.

Yes, all of our Sea Clear Aquariums are safe for Freshwater and Saltwater. The Hood comes with a Fluorescent Fixture (bulbs are sold separately). The hood can house up to four Fluorescent Fixtures (extra fixtures sold separately). We manufacture the hood to accommodate up to four Fluorescent Fixtures to provide different types of fluorescence light bulbs.

There are three basic types of lighting used for reef aquariums, fluorescent lights, metal halide lights, and LEDs. Most enthusiast use only fluorescent lights or a combination of metal halide and fluorescent lights to illuminate their tanks. However, LED lighting is a great option. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Metal halide lamps will produce a more point source spot type lighting, but the bulbs burn hot and need to be placed higher above your aquarium. Fluorescent lamps produce a more spread out even-looking lighting and burn cool.

We recommend cleaning the hood and bulbs frequently with a damp cloth to remove any salt residue. We recommend replacing fluorescent bulbs every six months. The lamps will produce light for a much longer period but the spectrum and intensity shift and decrease slowly over time. Corals will become slowly adjusted to these lamp changes over time and if you then change a lamp suddenly the corals will be subjected to much more intense light and will be adversely affected.

The quality of aquatic life in your aquarium can be directly related to the quality of light. If the correct spectrum and intensity of light is not provided, the survival rate of your plants, corals, or invertebrates will be poor. When designing your aquarium lighting system, your goal should be to duplicate natural conditions. Thanks to recent advancements in lighting technology, this has become an easier task.
