"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'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!

"Pretty easy to program."

The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect. This light is even better than I expected! This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate. When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. However, each brings a distinct look to the tank. I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light.

"It is very bright!"

The last pic is the blue setting on the NICREW light. It's so bright, I was concerned that I would bleach the corals at the 1 setting. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. This light is amazing, especially for the price. My only complaint is the missing seal. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels.

I was skeptical about only having 3 lighting types at first. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light. I'm very happy with the light performance. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer. The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. The corals look beautiful and the color spectrum is great.

It's been about a month since the new LED light came in. What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. This will also give you the blue lights while the whites are on throughout the day. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted.

"IT IS SUPER BRIGHT!"

When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect. Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. I just put half inch molding around the lights so they don't move. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. You just position it over the glass strip where the old strip light used to sit. I like that it has a timer built into the control module too.
