"They are pretty clear."

It can penetrate deep into the tank and grow corals. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light. This light has some great intensity to it. For the price these lights are incredible. I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase.

"5 inch units."

Another note, there are more blue LED than red LED. Check out the photos on this 20 gallon grow out tank. So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. I purchased this item for my daughters Aqua plant tank.

"Super bright!"

I am running 20 something aquariums and have multiple lights running in my fishroom. This lights had the reviews i was looking for. It's so bright, I was concerned that I would bleach the corals at the 1 setting. The last pic is the blue setting on the NICREW light. The timer works well, and I love that there are different intervals. I've had these lights for three weeks and so far they are AWESOME. I just put half inch molding around the lights so they don't move.

"The lightning is great."

My plants have been pearling by late evening since installing the light. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. They inquired about the issue with the item and then they replaced it right away. When I added this light my plants where not looking well at all. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. It illuminates my 20g long fish tank entirely and perfectly. I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer.

" just in case."

What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. Another note, there are more blue LED than red LED. They truly stand behind their products for the full 1 year warranty. I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. I added a moon light separately and all is good. I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours.

"Vibrant colors."

The 300w light is 16lbs, so I wouldn't trust using drywall anchors to mount it. My only concern is that the lowest setting is very bright. Programming the lights was a breeze, and it lights up my tank well. I've had these lights for three weeks and so far they are AWESOME. This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. The timer works well, and I love that there are different intervals. This light is even better than I expected!

"I'd recommend it."

The entire process took only a few days. Programming the lights was a breeze, and it lights up my tank well. I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service. I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer. I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. My main display has been running with ecotech radions.

"No issues out of the box."

You just position it over the glass strip where the old strip light used to sit. I've had these lights for three weeks and so far they are AWESOME. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible.

"Using on 37 gal cube."

I am running 20 something aquariums and have multiple lights running in my fishroom. This is the second Nicrew light I have purchased for my aquariums. We just run the bright lights during the day. Like most led strips, this is low profile and thin. When I added this light my plants where not looking well at all. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer.

"I'll elaborate in a bit."

However, each brings a distinct look to the tank. Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER! This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. I just set them up today so I will adjust and update this review accordingly. I added a moon light separately and all is good.

"Well worth it I think!"

If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. I like that it has a timer built into the control module too. This light coming in at 6500 kelvin is perfect! The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. I have to once again sing praises for this light and company. We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long.

It's been about a month since the new LED light came in. So my ALL Blues run alone one hour before and an hour after. They did well enough during the time I had them. This light is amazing, especially for the price. They are so much nicer than the florescent lights that came with my tanks. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer.

"Don't buy others."

I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light. I purchased three of these for my 240 gallon reef tank and they work incredibly well. Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first. If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. I'm very happy with the light performance.
