"It turns everything blue."

I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light. If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. The plants love it and it's easy on the eyes. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly.

"IT IS SUPER BRIGHT!"

I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. Like most led strips, this is low profile and thin. I thought they were fairly easy to set up. But now was an opportunity to upgrade. 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. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible.

‍♂️Rgbw, Multiple settings, 3 stage timer. I purchased this item for my daughters Aqua plant tank. ‍♂️Rgbw, Multiple settings, 3 stage timer. They truly stand behind their products for the full 1 year warranty. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. For the price you will not find a better light on the market.

"It does not feel cheap."

Wanted to return it but decided to keep it for my quarantine tank. My standard 10 gallon tank's hood finally crapped out on me. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer. What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. Check out the photos on this 20 gallon grow out tank. When I added this light my plants where not looking well at all.

"I'm very pleased."

The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. This is another awsome product from hygger. I have seen no flickering or pulsing of these lights as reported by other reviewers. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible. For the price you will not find a better light on the market. This will also give you the blue lights while the whites are on throughout the day.

"5gal tanks."

You just position it over the glass strip where the old strip light used to sit. Seems to be doing pretty well for my planted tank also! For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. They are so much nicer than the florescent lights that came with my tanks. I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. The corals look beautiful and the color spectrum is great.

"The blues are beautiful."

When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. The last pic is the blue setting on the NICREW light. Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well. This light is definitely amazing build quality and brightness for the price! You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. I purchased three of these for my 240 gallon reef tank and they work incredibly well.

"This light is awesome!"

I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. The built-in schedule will restrict you which is super annoying. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase. If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. My plants have been pearling by late evening since installing the light. It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first.

"2nd time Purchasing!"

You just position it over the glass strip where the old strip light used to sit. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. That sounded like a good plan to me so I agreed it was worth the risk. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light. My only complaint is the missing seal. Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well.

"I hope this light lasts."

Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived. They are so much nicer than the florescent lights that came with my tanks. It can penetrate deep into the tank and grow corals. We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long. I added a moon light separately and all is good. Seems to be doing pretty well for my planted tank also! This light has some great intensity to it.

"Not with this light!"

This is the second Nicrew light I have purchased for my aquariums. Another note, there are more blue LED than red LED. I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. Thia works fantastic for my 75 G salt tank. My main display has been running with ecotech radions.

I am so in love with this lights and looking forward to start a new planted tank. The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up. Seems to be doing pretty well for my planted tank also! I have to once again sing praises for this light and company. That said, I tried it out today and it's gorgeous! We just run the bright lights during the day.

"It is plenty of light."

Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price. That said, I tried it out today and it's gorgeous! I purchased three of these for my 240 gallon reef tank and they work incredibly well. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. It's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great. Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output. There IS a purple hue to this fixture.

"Actual length of the 7."

It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price. The plants love it and it's easy on the eyes. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. It can penetrate deep into the tank and grow corals. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light.

If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. However, each brings a distinct look to the tank. Just got this light today, and WOW! So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. Sealed very well and the shipping was next day. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light. It's not too bright and not too dim.
