"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!

"Look at this!"

The Nicrew comes with 2 different brackets to make sure it fits your aquarium. You just position it over the glass strip where the old strip light used to sit. This light is definitely amazing build quality and brightness for the price! This light has some great intensity to it. I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer.

"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.

"But for a DISPLAY."

Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. I just set them up today so I will adjust and update this review accordingly. I am going to have to order more for my 55s after seeing what this one can do . I just put half inch molding around the lights so they don't move. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price.

"BUYER BE WARE."

It's been a few years since I left this review and thought I'd leave an update. I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well. Another note, there are more blue LED than red LED. I thought they were fairly easy to set up. This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. I purchased three of these for my 240 gallon reef tank and they work incredibly well.

"Using on 37 gal cube."

Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived. I would highly recommend this light for anyone looking. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light.

"I'll elaborate in a bit."

You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. No bad algae, Corals show great expansion, nice growth, and good coloration. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly.

Will purchase from them again in the future, highly recommended. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. There IS a purple hue to this fixture. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral. I purchased three of these for my 240 gallon reef tank and they work incredibly well.
