This is a review of my Top Fin Essentials 37 Gallon Aquarium Kit from PetSmart. I get into detail about the kit itself including contents, modifications I did to the tank as well as the stand I chose for it. I made a mistake and said my light was on for 10 hours (11am-11pm), I meant 11am-9pm. Also, the tank has a basic black background installed on it. I’ll include some links to where I bought everything from. The kit also comes with a net and a water test vial that I forgot to mention. Thanks for watching!

Aqua Culture 20/29 Gallon Aquarium Stand:
I modified the aquarium hood with a hand saw and sand paper to smooth the edges. I used two 2 X 6’s to support the inside with gloss black spray paint. I also used a 24 in X 24 in pre-cut piece of plywood to support the back, all of which I screwed in with 1.5 inch wood screws after drilling pilot holes. I used 1 X 6 to make two shelves with angle iron and 0.5 in wood screws.
