"Very bright!"

I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck. Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well. This light is amazing, especially for the price. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want.

HIPARGERO Final Thoughts

"I have two reef tanks."

Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. I have to once again sing praises for this light and company. This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate. I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me. I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service. You just position it over the glass strip where the old strip light used to sit. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap.

"Mainly wanted timer."

The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect. It's been about a month since the new LED light came in. When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. Sealed very well and the shipping was next day. Suprized how well it lights up this tank. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible. Also note this is an initial impression review.

"It is worth every penny."

What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. I am going to have to order more for my 55s after seeing what this one can do . The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase. It's not too bright and not too dim. This is the second Nicrew light I have purchased for my aquariums. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly.

NICREW N12672 Final Thoughts

"Very nice light."

If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. I am going to have to order more for my 55s after seeing what this one can do . Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived. 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. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning.

"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.

"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.

"2nd time Purchasing!"

No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up. The person I sold them to had one start smoking and burnt out the white channel. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light. PAR readings were taken with an apogee par meter. The last pic is the blue setting on the NICREW light. They inquired about the issue with the item and then they replaced it right away. This light coming in at 6500 kelvin is perfect!

"I'll elaborate in a bit."

I initially planned to put this light on a 10 gallon with some javaferns and moss. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. If you're considering using the LED stick-on lights to upgrade- don't bother. I was skeptical about only having 3 lighting types at first. This will also give you the blue lights while the whites are on throughout the day. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. This light is definitely amazing build quality and brightness for the price!
