"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. Also note this is an initial impression review. This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate. Trust me u will not be disappointed! I like that it has a timer built into the control module too.

KZKR Final Thoughts

"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.

" just in case."

What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. Another note, there are more blue LED than red LED. They truly stand behind their products for the full 1 year warranty. I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. I added a moon light separately and all is good. I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours.

"Vibrant colors."

The 300w light is 16lbs, so I wouldn't trust using drywall anchors to mount it. My only concern is that the lowest setting is very bright. Programming the lights was a breeze, and it lights up my tank well. I've had these lights for three weeks and so far they are AWESOME. This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. The timer works well, and I love that there are different intervals. This light is even better than I expected!

It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first.

"It turns everything blue."

I got my light today couldn't wait to put it on my blackwater tank. No bad algae, Corals show great expansion, nice growth, and good coloration. It's been a few years since I left this review and thought I'd leave an update. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. I'm very happy with the light performance. I just put half inch molding around the lights so they don't move. All my plants doubled in size in a month as shown in the pictures.

"The color looks great."

Wanted to return it but decided to keep it for my quarantine tank. The Nicrew comes with 2 different brackets to make sure it fits your aquarium. It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER! The plants love it and it's easy on the eyes. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for.

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.

"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.

That said, I tried it out today and it's gorgeous! All my plants doubled in size in a month as shown in the pictures. For the price you will not find a better light on the market. The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer.

"I love it."

If you're considering using the LED stick-on lights to upgrade- don't bother. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. I've had these lights for three weeks and so far they are AWESOME. The remote that comes with the light leaves a lot to be desired. I have to once again sing praises for this light and company. As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well.

  • biOrb Standard LED Light, Large
  • Compatible with ALL BiOrb 30 Liter Classic and 60 Liter Classic Aquariums
  • The BiOrb Standard LED Light, Large, illuminates your BiOrb with bright white LEDs that are suitable for 50,000 hours of lighting. Long life LEDs means that there are no bulbs to change and for your peace of mind, the light is low voltage.

"Not happy."

It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. It can penetrate deep into the tank and grow corals. It's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great. Seems to be doing pretty well for my planted tank also! So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. My main display has been running with ecotech radions. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral.

Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. They inquired about the issue with the item and then they replaced it right away. This is another awsome product from hygger. But now was an opportunity to upgrade. I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light.

"Switch has 3 settings."

They inquired about the issue with the item and then they replaced it right away. As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly. Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. The second pic is my old Top Fin light for comparison. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it.
