DaToo First Impressions

"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 it."

I initially planned to put this light on a 10 gallon with some javaferns and moss. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. Suprized how well it lights up this tank. Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. Programming the lights was a breeze, and it lights up my tank well. So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer.

"No dimmer or timer."

When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours. The person I sold them to had one start smoking and burnt out the white channel. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. When I added this light my plants where not looking well at all. This light coming in at 6500 kelvin is perfect!

"What a pain!"

When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. That said, I tried it out today and it's gorgeous! So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. This light is even better than I expected! I've had these lights for three weeks and so far they are AWESOME. The second pic is my old Top Fin light for comparison. I have to once again sing praises for this light and company.

"These lights are great."

So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer. Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia.

I initially planned to put this light on a 10 gallon with some javaferns and moss. Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck.

"I have two reef tanks."

So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up. Suprized how well it lights up this tank. I am so in love with this lights and looking forward to start a new planted tank. This is the second Nicrew light I have purchased for my aquariums. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light. Overall a good competitor to Nicrew.

"- no color control."

The adjustable brightness levels are awesome too. They did well enough during the time I had them. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. But now was an opportunity to upgrade. So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. My only complaint is the missing seal. Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived.

"The price was just right."

I have seen no flickering or pulsing of these lights as reported by other reviewers. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. I just put half inch molding around the lights so they don't move. The adjustable brightness levels are awesome too. Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first. So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer.

"Took off 4 stars."

I've had other Nicrew lights on other tanks and they have all performed well for me. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light.

"I would recommend buying!"

This is the second Nicrew light I have purchased for my aquariums. Like most led strips, this is low profile and thin. I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer. The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. They truly stand behind their products for the full 1 year warranty.

"They are pretty clear."

If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. I changed my review and contacted Hygger. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. I have seen no flickering or pulsing of these lights as reported by other reviewers. I'd use it for a frag tank or maybe even a coral QT. I am going to have to order more for my 55s after seeing what this one can do . As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well.

It's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great. The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light. Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output.
