"I couldn't be happier."

I got my light today couldn't wait to put it on my blackwater tank. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. I like that it has a timer built into the control module too.

DaToo Final Thoughts

"Definitely submersible."

I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top. Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase. Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck. The person I sold them to had one start smoking and burnt out the white channel. We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long. It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER!

"I love this light."

This light is amazing, especially for the price. PAR readings were taken with an apogee par meter. When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. Trust me u will not be disappointed! The second pic is my old Top Fin light for comparison. I just put half inch molding around the lights so they don't move. I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours.

"So far A+ rating."

It's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. I am running 20 something aquariums and have multiple lights running in my fishroom. What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. My only concern is that the lowest setting is very bright.

"Very nice light."

I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours. I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output. I initially planned to put this light on a 10 gallon with some javaferns and moss. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. I purchased three of these for my 240 gallon reef tank and they work incredibly well. This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants.

"Highly recommend."

I got my light today couldn't wait to put it on my blackwater tank. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. They inquired about the issue with the item and then they replaced it right away. So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output. Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light.

"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.

The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. PAR readings were taken with an apogee par meter. I am going to have to order more for my 55s after seeing what this one can do . Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. It's so bright, I was concerned that I would bleach the corals at the 1 setting. This light is even better than I expected! Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price.

"I have two reef tanks."

Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. My only complaint is the missing seal. My only complaint is the missing seal. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them. The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. It can penetrate deep into the tank and grow corals.

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 added a moon light separately and all is good. There IS a purple hue to this fixture. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. I was skeptical about only having 3 lighting types at first. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. This light is amazing, especially for the price.

The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well. My main display has been running with ecotech radions. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. My only complaint is the missing seal. Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. Suprized how well it lights up this tank.
