"The brackets work nicely."

For the price these lights are incredible. The timer works well, and I love that there are different intervals. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER!

"I love it."

I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. Thanks u so much Hygger for all the amazing equipment u offer. The timer works well, and I love that there are different intervals. This will also give you the blue lights while the whites are on throughout the day. Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia. This light has some great intensity to it. If you're considering using the LED stick-on lights to upgrade- don't bother.

"This is a bright."

Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. They inquired about the issue with the item and then they replaced it right away. This is another awsome product from hygger. But now was an opportunity to upgrade. I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. That sounded like a good plan to me so I agreed it was worth the risk. So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on.

"Switch has 3 settings."

They inquired about the issue with the item and then they replaced it right away. As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly. Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. The second pic is my old Top Fin light for comparison. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it.

"It is very bright!"

I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. I was skeptical about only having 3 lighting types at first. So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer. This light is even better than I expected! The corals look beautiful and the color spectrum is great.

"Very bright!"

The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. That sounded like a good plan to me so I agreed it was worth the risk. I initially planned to put this light on a 10 gallon with some javaferns and moss. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. I changed my review and contacted Hygger. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. It's been about a month since the new LED light came in.

"The color looks great."

I added a moon light separately and all is good. Just got this light today, and WOW! I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly. You just position it over the glass strip where the old strip light used to sit. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service.

"So far so good!"

I've had other Nicrew lights on other tanks and they have all performed well for me. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top. The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. The Nicrew comes with 2 different brackets to make sure it fits your aquarium. I thought they were fairly easy to set up. I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top.

"Very bright."

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.

"5 betta tank."

So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible. I purchased this item for my daughters Aqua plant tank. The person I sold them to had one start smoking and burnt out the white channel. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. It's been about a month since the new LED light came in.

NICREW Final Thoughts

"I would recommend buying!"

What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up. My plants have been pearling by late evening since installing the light. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light. The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. It's been a few years since I left this review and thought I'd leave an update.

"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.

Will purchase from them again in the future, highly recommended. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. There IS a purple hue to this fixture. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral. I purchased three of these for my 240 gallon reef tank and they work incredibly well. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it.
