It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours.

2. biOrb Standard LED Light, Large

"I love it."

If you're considering using the LED stick-on lights to upgrade- don't bother. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. I've had these lights for three weeks and so far they are AWESOME. The remote that comes with the light leaves a lot to be desired. I have to once again sing praises for this light and company. As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well.

  • biOrb Standard LED Light, Large
  • Compatible with ALL BiOrb 30 Liter Classic and 60 Liter Classic Aquariums
  • The BiOrb Standard LED Light, Large, illuminates your BiOrb with bright white LEDs that are suitable for 50,000 hours of lighting. Long life LEDs means that there are no bulbs to change and for your peace of mind, the light is low voltage.
  • Can be used to replace the BiOrb Halogen Light. Does NOT include the Transformer. It uses the same Transformer that runs the Halogen Light.

"Not happy."

It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. It can penetrate deep into the tank and grow corals. It's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great. Seems to be doing pretty well for my planted tank also! So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. My main display has been running with ecotech radions. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral.

"No remote."

I changed my review and contacted Hygger. So my ALL Blues run alone one hour before and an hour after. If you're considering using the LED stick-on lights to upgrade- don't bother. I am so in love with this lights and looking forward to start a new planted tank. I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top. This is another awsome product from hygger. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted.

"It turns everything blue."

Overall a good competitor to Nicrew. The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. It illuminates my 20g long fish tank entirely and perfectly. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer. Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well.

"- no color control."

As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price. I'm very happy with the light performance.

No bad algae, Corals show great expansion, nice growth, and good coloration.

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.

I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long. This light has some great intensity to it. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. They inquired about the issue with the item and then they replaced it right away. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum.
