"I'll elaborate in a bit."

This light is amazing, especially for the price. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. You just position it over the glass strip where the old strip light used to sit. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price.

Coospider HUV-11 Final Thoughts

"Would recommend."

It illuminates my 20g long fish tank entirely and perfectly. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. I like that it has a timer built into the control module too. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral. The Nicrew comes with 2 different brackets to make sure it fits your aquarium. When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service.

"So far A+ rating."

When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. I purchased 2 of these lights for my 90 gal reef tank. When I added this light my plants where not looking well at all. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. I've had other Nicrew lights on other tanks and they have all performed well for me.

" just in case."

I have to once again sing praises for this light and company. I got my light today couldn't wait to put it on my blackwater tank. But now was an opportunity to upgrade. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. They did well enough during the time I had them. The plants love it and it's easy on the eyes.

"So far A+ rating."

I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. This is another awsome product from hygger. I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first. Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. The corals look beautiful and the color spectrum is great.

DONGKER Final Thoughts

"But for a DISPLAY."

They did well enough during the time I had them. I am going to have to order more for my 55s after seeing what this one can do . This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived. Trust me u will not be disappointed! This is the second Nicrew light I have purchased for my aquariums. Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well.

Relassy First Impressions

"2nd time Purchasing!"

If you're considering using the LED stick-on lights to upgrade- don't bother. The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want.

  • Relassy Aquarium Led Light 800W , Dimmable Coral Reef Light for Saltwater Aquarium Fish Tank , Full Spectrum LED Aquarium Plant Light with Daisy Chain Function

"Seems to be well made."

They truly stand behind their products for the full 1 year warranty. I am so in love with this lights and looking forward to start a new planted tank. The timer works well, and I love that there are different intervals. I have seen no flickering or pulsing of these lights as reported by other reviewers. We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long. However, each brings a distinct look to the tank. Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output.

"Pretty easy to program."

I am running 20 something aquariums and have multiple lights running in my fishroom. If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. I'd use it for a frag tank or maybe even a coral QT. The person I sold them to had one start smoking and burnt out the white channel. I would highly recommend this light for anyone looking. I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service.

"Very nice light."

This lights had the reviews i was looking for. I'm very happy with the light performance. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase.

Also note this is an initial impression review.
