"I did not."

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. My only concern is that the lowest setting is very bright. Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up. Thia works fantastic for my 75 G salt tank. It's so bright, I was concerned that I would bleach the corals at the 1 setting.

"We don't use that."

I just put half inch molding around the lights so they don't move. It's not too bright and not too dim. It's been about a month since the new LED light came in. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price. The entire process took only a few days. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible. Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived.

"I'm very pleased."

For the price these lights are incredible. I am very pleased and plan to get the smaller version for my betta tank. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up. Also note this is an initial impression review. I was skeptical about only having 3 lighting types at first. I added a moon light separately and all is good. I am very pleased and plan to get the smaller version for my betta tank.

"But I didn't need them."

The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. Wanted to return it but decided to keep it for my quarantine tank. However, each brings a distinct look to the tank. But now was an opportunity to upgrade. I am very pleased and plan to get the smaller version for my betta tank. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. I bought the smaller one without realizing it.

"It worked."

What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. The entire process took only a few days. For the price you will not find a better light on the market. Just got this light today, and WOW! Wanted to return it but decided to keep it for my quarantine tank. It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first. The Nicrew comes with 2 different brackets to make sure it fits your aquarium.

"Before I begin!"

I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them. My only complaint is the missing seal. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light.

WOTERZI Final Thoughts

"My cats love it!"

I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. This will also give you the blue lights while the whites are on throughout the day. I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top. So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. This light coming in at 6500 kelvin is perfect! I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning.

"I would recommend buying!"

If you're considering using the LED stick-on lights to upgrade- don't bother. I changed my review and contacted Hygger. Will purchase from them again in the future, highly recommended. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light. For the price these lights are incredible. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect.

"Then the bars slide out."

Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light. But now was an opportunity to upgrade. Like most led strips, this is low profile and thin. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible. So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. This light has some great intensity to it. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels.

Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. There IS a purple hue to this fixture. I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me. I am so in love with this lights and looking forward to start a new planted tank. It's not too bright and not too dim. Seems to be doing pretty well for my planted tank also!

"Seems good quality."

When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. This is the second Nicrew light I have purchased for my aquariums. This light is definitely amazing build quality and brightness for the price! Overall a good competitor to Nicrew. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted. There IS a purple hue to this fixture.

"5 inch units."

That sounded like a good plan to me so I agreed it was worth the risk. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted. I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service. Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well.

"Good build quality."

Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. I'd use it for a frag tank or maybe even a coral QT. Now thanks to this light they are not only surviving but thriving also. This light is even better than I expected! All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly. It illuminates my 20g long fish tank entirely and perfectly.
