"5 inch units."

I added a moon light separately and all is good. Thanks u so much Hygger for all the amazing equipment u offer. I'd use it for a frag tank or maybe even a coral QT. I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me. I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me. It's not too bright and not too dim. When I added this light my plants where not looking well at all.

Finnex KL-C48A Final Thoughts

"It turns everything blue."

As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well. The second pic is my old Top Fin light for comparison. My only complaint is the missing seal. Wanted to return it but decided to keep it for my quarantine tank. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible. No bad algae, Corals show great expansion, nice growth, and good coloration. This light has some great intensity to it.

"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.

"These lights are great."

The entire process took only a few days. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. I added a moon light separately and all is good. Will purchase from them again in the future, highly recommended. So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer. Also note this is an initial impression review.

"I'd recommend it."

This is another awsome product from hygger. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. I would highly recommend this light for anyone looking. I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours. It illuminates my 20g long fish tank entirely and perfectly.

"I hope this light lasts."

It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER! We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long. That sounded like a good plan to me so I agreed it was worth the risk. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. This will also give you the blue lights while the whites are on throughout the day.

"I have two reef tanks."

We just run the bright lights during the day. I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. I purchased 2 of these lights for my 90 gal reef tank. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. The plants love it and it's easy on the eyes. I like that it has a timer built into the control module too.

"Very bright."

This is the second Nicrew light I have purchased for my aquariums. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. I was skeptical about only having 3 lighting types at first. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. The second pic is my old Top Fin light for comparison.

"We don't use that."

PAR readings were taken with an apogee par meter. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them. Like most led strips, this is low profile and thin. Also note this is an initial impression review. This light is even better than I expected! This light is amazing, especially for the price. I purchased this item for my daughters Aqua plant tank.

Finnex FL-48 First Impressions

"Pretty easy to program."

I was skeptical about only having 3 lighting types at first. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light. I'm very happy with the light performance. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer. The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. The corals look beautiful and the color spectrum is great. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired.

"I love this light."

It's been about a month since the new LED light came in. What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. This will also give you the blue lights while the whites are on throughout the day. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels.

"It's a good light."

Sealed very well and the shipping was next day. Will purchase from them again in the future, highly recommended. The last pic is the blue setting on the NICREW light. I'd use it for a frag tank or maybe even a coral QT. It illuminates my 20g long fish tank entirely and perfectly. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for.

"Its awesome."

The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price. So my ALL Blues run alone one hour before and an hour after. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me. When I added this light my plants where not looking well at all. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them.

"I hope this light lasts."

Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output. It can penetrate deep into the tank and grow corals. That sounded like a good plan to me so I agreed it was worth the risk. Like most led strips, this is low profile and thin. This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price.

I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours. The built-in schedule will restrict you which is super annoying.

I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. Thanks u so much Hygger for all the amazing equipment u offer.

"They are pretty clear."

If you're considering using the LED stick-on lights to upgrade- don't bother. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price. I purchased three of these for my 240 gallon reef tank and they work incredibly well. My only concern is that the lowest setting is very bright. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly. I've had these lights for three weeks and so far they are AWESOME.

Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. However, each brings a distinct look to the tank. If you're considering using the LED stick-on lights to upgrade- don't bother. This is another awsome product from hygger. It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER! Thia works fantastic for my 75 G salt tank. They did well enough during the time I had them.
