"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.

"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!

"I'd recommend it."

I purchased 2 of these lights for my 90 gal reef tank. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. I am so in love with this lights and looking forward to start a new planted tank. The second pic is my old Top Fin light for comparison. I've had other Nicrew lights on other tanks and they have all performed well for me. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great.

"It turns everything blue."

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. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones.

Current USA 4227 First Impressions

"That is the best."

The timer works well, and I love that there are different intervals. The adjustable brightness levels are awesome too. So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. It's so bright, I was concerned that I would bleach the corals at the 1 setting. No bad algae, Corals show great expansion, nice growth, and good coloration. I thought they were fairly easy to set up. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light.

  • Current Orbit Marine IC PRO LED Reef Aquarium Dual Light System with Wireless Loop
  • FULL SPECTRUM- Producing eye-popping color and amazing color rendition, full spectrum control allows you to create the perfect color spectra for your reef. A powerful blend of Dual Actinic blue 445nm/460nm, Dual Daylight white 6,700K/10,000K and RGB LEDs combined with 90° spherical optical lenses delivers the perfect blend of light for strong coral growth and amazing fluorescence.
  • 2 IS BETTER THAN 1- The Orbit Marine IC PRO produces the same vibrant, full color spectrum as the Orbit Marine IC LED, but delivers up to twice the amount of light. That means everything you see will be noticeably more brilliant and vivid in color.
  • REALISTIC EFFECTS- From start-up to sundown, the Orbit Marine gradually mimics the effect of a slow sunrise, bright daylight, dimming sunset and moonlight. Built-in lighting programs create a 24-hour natural biorhythmic lighting cycle, while on-demand dynamic weather effects gently roll clouds across your reef.
  • BUILT IN WAVE PUMP CONTROLLER- It’s wave pump ready. Whether you have a mixed reef or just keeping a large fish only saltwater aquarium, the colors will be so enriched and vivid, you’ll feel like you’re in the ocean too.

"Love this light!"

Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral. Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output. The timer works well, and I love that there are different intervals. Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. There IS a purple hue to this fixture. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up.

"Very bright."

Wanted to return it but decided to keep it for my quarantine tank. Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck. What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. It's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great. For the price you will not find a better light on the market. I've had these lights for three weeks and so far they are AWESOME. So my ALL Blues run alone one hour before and an hour after.

  • Aquatic Life Reno WiFi Multi-Color LED Aquarium Light
  • Full-spectrum RGB LED’s allows for total customization of colors over the aquarium!
  • This is the perfect light for fish-only aquariums when complete color customization is desired. The full spectrum RGB LED’s provide an almost endless combination of colors while the white led’s provide extra brightness over the aquarium.
  • The built-in Wi-Fi allows the fixture to connect directly to your phone and works with both Apple and Android products. You don’t even need a router or Wi-Fi network in your home or office for these fixtures to work with you phone.
  • Once connected, it’s easy to select the color of your choice and program multiple on/off times. The clock in the fixture is automatically set because it takes the time from your phone.

If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. It's been about a month since the new LED light came in. Seems to be doing pretty well for my planted tank also!

"Actual length of the 7."

I initially planned to put this light on a 10 gallon with some javaferns and moss. I like that it has a timer built into the control module too. They did well enough during the time I had them. The adjustable brightness levels are awesome too. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted.

Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels.
