"So far A+ rating."

The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output. I am running 20 something aquariums and have multiple lights running in my fishroom. I changed my review and contacted Hygger. That said, I tried it out today and it's gorgeous! I added a moon light separately and all is good. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish.

"No remote."

The Nicrew comes with 2 different brackets to make sure it fits your aquarium. Overall build quality is really good. It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER! My main display has been running with ecotech radions. It's so bright, I was concerned that I would bleach the corals at the 1 setting. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. They truly stand behind their products for the full 1 year warranty.

"Well worth it I think!"

The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output. It's been a few years since I left this review and thought I'd leave an update. However, each brings a distinct look to the tank. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for.

"My cats love it!"

So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. I like that it has a timer built into the control module too. My only concern is that the lowest setting is very bright. I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light. So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on.

They truly stand behind their products for the full 1 year warranty. As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly.

"I'll elaborate in a bit."

It's not too bright and not too dim. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly. Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light. This light is amazing, especially for the price. This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for.

This light has some great intensity to it. Suprized how well it lights up this tank. ‍♂️Rgbw, Multiple settings, 3 stage timer. They did well enough during the time I had them.

"Highly recommended!"

I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me. So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck. So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer. Sealed very well and the shipping was next day. When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. Just got this light today, and WOW!

"So took a chance."

When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. I've had other Nicrew lights on other tanks and they have all performed well for me. This light is amazing, especially for the price. My plants have been pearling by late evening since installing the light. Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. The adjustable brightness levels are awesome too.

I'm very happy with the light performance. This lights had the reviews i was looking for. Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. Thia works fantastic for my 75 G salt tank.

"We don't use that."

For the price these lights are incredible. No bad algae, Corals show great expansion, nice growth, and good coloration. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase. It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for. Like most led strips, this is low profile and thin. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. I was skeptical about only having 3 lighting types at first.

When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. It's been about a month since the new LED light came in. They are so much nicer than the florescent lights that came with my tanks. The timer works well, and I love that there are different intervals. Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. I got my light today couldn't wait to put it on my blackwater tank. This light has some great intensity to it.
