"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.

"I'm very pleased."

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. Thanks u so much Hygger for all the amazing equipment u offer. Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light.

"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.

"Acting completely normal."

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. They are so much nicer than the florescent lights that came with my tanks. I purchased 2 of these lights for my 90 gal reef tank. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great.

"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!

"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.

"We don't use that."

I just put half inch molding around the lights so they don't move. When I added this light my plants where not looking well at all. We just run the bright lights during the day. However, each brings a distinct look to the tank. Trust me u will not be disappointed! This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate. The plants love it and it's easy on the eyes.

I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral.

"Before I begin!"

We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long. If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. Wanted to return it but decided to keep it for my quarantine tank. That sounded like a good plan to me so I agreed it was worth the risk. I just set them up today so I will adjust and update this review accordingly. Programming the lights was a breeze, and it lights up my tank well. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great.

"Took off 4 stars."

This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. It illuminates my 20g long fish tank entirely and perfectly. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. There IS a purple hue to this fixture. Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia.

"Very bright."

Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for. They are so much nicer than the florescent lights that came with my tanks. Overall build quality is really good. They truly stand behind their products for the full 1 year warranty. Sealed very well and the shipping was next day. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted.

"The blues are beautiful."

This will also give you the blue lights while the whites are on throughout the day. It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first. I have to once again sing praises for this light and company. Another note, there are more blue LED than red LED. For the price you will not find a better light on the market. This light is definitely amazing build quality and brightness for the price! This will also give you the blue lights while the whites are on throughout the day.
