"I'm very pleased."

For the price these lights are incredible. I am very pleased and plan to get the smaller version for my betta tank. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up. Also note this is an initial impression review. I was skeptical about only having 3 lighting types at first. I added a moon light separately and all is good. I am very pleased and plan to get the smaller version for my betta tank.

"I hope this light lasts."

Trust me u will not be disappointed! The remote that comes with the light leaves a lot to be desired. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. I am very pleased and plan to get the smaller version for my betta tank. It's not too bright and not too dim. Thanks u so much Hygger for all the amazing equipment u offer. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up.

MarineLand 32996 First Impressions

"It is very bright!"

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. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. Wanted to return it but decided to keep it for my quarantine tank. I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top. I'd use it for a frag tank or maybe even a coral QT.

"5 betta tank."

When I added this light my plants where not looking well at all. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral. I purchased this item for my daughters Aqua plant tank. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate. PAR readings were taken with an apogee par meter.

"I have a 120 gal."

But now was an opportunity to upgrade. Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia. Thanks u so much Hygger for all the amazing equipment u offer. Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output. The 300w light is 16lbs, so I wouldn't trust using drywall anchors to mount it. It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first.

The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. Wanted to return it but decided to keep it for my quarantine tank. However, each brings a distinct look to the tank. But now was an opportunity to upgrade. I am very pleased and plan to get the smaller version for my betta tank.

"It worked."

What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. The entire process took only a few days. For the price you will not find a better light on the market. Just got this light today, and WOW! Wanted to return it but decided to keep it for my quarantine tank. It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first. The Nicrew comes with 2 different brackets to make sure it fits your aquarium.

"It is awsome!"

The plants love it and it's easy on the eyes. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. All my plants doubled in size in a month as shown in the pictures. I am going to have to order more for my 55s after seeing what this one can do . I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top.

"Well worth it I think!"

Also note this is an initial impression review. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. So my ALL Blues run alone one hour before and an hour after. That said, I tried it out today and it's gorgeous! This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. Also note this is an initial impression review.

This light is definitely amazing build quality and brightness for the price! All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly. I have to once again sing praises for this light and company. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer.
