"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.

"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 would recommend buying!"

My plants have been pearling by late evening since installing the light. We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long. This light has some great intensity to it. Check out the photos on this 20 gallon grow out tank. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light.

"I have a 120 gal."

It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them. Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived. This light coming in at 6500 kelvin is perfect! Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. The timer works well, and I love that there are different intervals.

"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 have seen no flickering or pulsing of these lights as reported by other reviewers. The person I sold them to had one start smoking and burnt out the white channel. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants.
