"But it's awesome!"

I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. Seems to be doing pretty well for my planted tank also! This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate. Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light. The last pic is the blue setting on the NICREW light. I am so in love with this lights and looking forward to start a new planted tank. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply.

"So took a chance."

I purchased this item for my daughters Aqua plant tank. This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate. My main display has been running with ecotech radions. I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. For the price you will not find a better light on the market. If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. You just position it over the glass strip where the old strip light used to sit.

Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer. It illuminates my 20g long fish tank entirely and perfectly. Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light. Overall a good competitor to Nicrew. I am very pleased and plan to get the smaller version for my betta tank. The plants love it and it's easy on the eyes. So my ALL Blues run alone one hour before and an hour after.

"Definitely submersible."

Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia. I changed my review and contacted Hygger. Sealed very well and the shipping was next day. My only complaint is the missing seal. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. But now was an opportunity to upgrade.

"I'd recommend it."

Thanks u so much Hygger for all the amazing equipment u offer. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase. I initially planned to put this light on a 10 gallon with some javaferns and moss. 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. The corals look beautiful and the color spectrum is great. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great.

"Using on 37 gal cube."

Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted. The entire process took only a few days. My main display has been running with ecotech radions. The entire process took only a few days. My only concern is that the lowest setting is very bright.

‍♂️Rgbw, Multiple settings, 3 stage timer. I would highly recommend this light for anyone looking. This is another awsome product from hygger. Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels.

"I am loving it so far!"

I got my light today couldn't wait to put it on my blackwater tank. We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long. So my ALL Blues run alone one hour before and an hour after. Suprized how well it lights up this tank. Programming the lights was a breeze, and it lights up my tank well. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived.

This light is definitely amazing build quality and brightness for the price! 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's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great. Suprized how well it lights up this tank. All my plants doubled in size in a month as shown in the pictures. The remote that comes with the light leaves a lot to be desired.

"Acting completely normal."

They are so much nicer than the florescent lights that came with my tanks. I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. I thought they were fairly easy to set up. The 300w light is 16lbs, so I wouldn't trust using drywall anchors to mount it. Suprized how well it lights up this tank. Programming the lights was a breeze, and it lights up my tank well. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer.
