"Very bright!"

I bought the smaller one without realizing it. The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light.

"5 betta tank."

Suprized how well it lights up this tank. They inquired about the issue with the item and then they replaced it right away. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer. It's been about a month since the new LED light came in. I was skeptical about only having 3 lighting types at first. I purchased this item for my daughters Aqua plant tank. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible.

"Mainly wanted timer."

Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light. This lights had the reviews i was looking for. As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well. The corals look beautiful and the color spectrum is great. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral. PAR readings were taken with an apogee par meter. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it.

KZKR Final Thoughts

"Hope it lasts."

I purchased three of these for my 240 gallon reef tank and they work incredibly well. I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top. I thought they were fairly easy to set up. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. I purchased this item for my daughters Aqua plant tank. PAR readings were taken with an apogee par meter. So my ALL Blues run alone one hour before and an hour after.

"I'll elaborate in a bit."

However, each brings a distinct look to the tank. Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER! This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. I just set them up today so I will adjust and update this review accordingly. I added a moon light separately and all is good.

"Well worth it I think!"

If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. I like that it has a timer built into the control module too. This light coming in at 6500 kelvin is perfect! The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. I have to once again sing praises for this light and company. We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long.

I purchased three of these for my 240 gallon reef tank and they work incredibly well. Like most led strips, this is low profile and thin. It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for. Overall build quality is really good. When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. My only concern is that the lowest setting is very bright. My main display has been running with ecotech radions.

"I love it."

They truly stand behind their products for the full 1 year warranty. It's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great. This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. I just put half inch molding around the lights so they don't move. It's not too bright and not too dim. Like most led strips, this is low profile and thin.

"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.

"Mainly wanted timer."

‍♂️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. This will also give you the blue lights while the whites are on throughout the day.

I would highly recommend this light for anyone looking. I'm very happy with the light performance. Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia.

"The brackets work nicely."

The remote that comes with the light leaves a lot to be desired. Trust me u will not be disappointed! I'd use it for a frag tank or maybe even a coral QT. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them. It's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. They are so much nicer than the florescent lights that came with my tanks.

"The blues are beautiful."

I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. If you're considering using the LED stick-on lights to upgrade- don't bother. The timer works well, and I love that there are different intervals. The second pic is my old Top Fin light for comparison. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning.
