Fill it first. It will fit snugly after you fill it.

I've had many aquariums and the Crescents are some of my favorites. When you add water to the Crescent aquariums, the front and the back of the aquarium bow out slightly. The lid was designed so that when the aquarium is full of water it fits well. This is true for both the Crescent 3 and 5.

I actually just put two of the Crescent 3 aquariums on my desk and filled one with water and left one empty. The lid doesn't fit onto the empty aquarium unless I push the front of the tank out a little. Then it fits but is a little tight. The lid fits the full aquarium without any problem.

Hello,
Yes you can use a heater. You would only need a small wattage heater such as the 10 watt Marineland stealth heater or the 25 watt Visitherm.

Question

Is it possible to get a solid lid/cover for the 5 gallon crescent shaped aquarium?

The instructions said to remove the "knock-out panels" from the hood. However, mine were already removed. I purchased the aquarium for aquatic frogs that could easily jump out of the aquarium with these large holes in the lid. Is it possible to get one with the panels in place?

Hi, the hood for the Crescent 5 doesn't come with the knock out panels. This molded hood also has a large feeding hole in the front that could allow your frogs to escape. Unfortunately, this aquarium may not be the best choice for aquatic frogs.

If you like the shape of the Crescent 5, we do have a Marineland Corner 5 aquarium that uses the same aquarium tank. It comes with BIO-Wheel filtration and a compact fluorescent lamp. The hood covers the entire aquarium and would be great for aquatic frogs.

Question

LED Crescent 3

This apears to be the perfect tank for me but the only reputable place I can find it is online (only) via a big box store. I have my local store (authorized retailer) trying to order this and match the big box's price. Why is this model so hard to get for $40? The Eclipse models are everywhere and seem to have quite a few complaints.Thanks for your time to sort this out for me! Michael

Hello,

LED bulbs are not replaceable and should last for 4-7 years, depending on how long you run the light each day. Give us a call at 1-800-322-1266 to discuss further. If the light is not working, you may have a warranty issue.

Question

Crescent 5 lid

My Crescent 5 hood is faded now and a milky white color not allowing the light to penetrate to the water. Is there an way to purchase a new lid? I would hate to have to throw away a 2 year old aquarium because I cannot get a replacement lid.

Hello,

No, not very well, as it does not have the proper spectrum. We do not make a really small light along the lines of the LED that would fit your tank, and support plants. You would need to go to a short fluorescent strip with a 6500 Kelvin light bulb in it. You would be back to replacing your bulb every 9 months. The only plants we would recommend trying are java fern, anubias, and java moss.

Question

Cover for Marineland Crescent 5 Filter?

My zebra danios think its great fun to leap up the waterfall produced by the Tetra Whisper Micro Filter. Unfortunately, they have ended up INSIDE the filter several times in the last couple hours, and each time I have to scoop them out back into the tank.
I am worried that they'll jump out of the tank entirely or get caught in the filter when I am not here to notice. Does anyone know of a cover that I can get for the filter, or any way to prevent them from doing this?

Thanks!

There is not a cover for the filter. I'm sorry. You may be able to lower the water level in the tank, if you can stand the noise from the water flow.
Thanks.

Yes, this is called the Universal LED Light. www.amazon.com and www.thatfishplace.com carry it I believe. You might also try your local pet stores.
