"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.

"The price was just right."

It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER! It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for. That said, I tried it out today and it's gorgeous! The adjustable brightness levels are awesome too. Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light. It's not too bright and not too dim. I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light.

"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.

"But I didn't need them."

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. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. I bought the smaller one without realizing it.

"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.

"Don't buy others."

This light is even better than I expected! It's so bright, I was concerned that I would bleach the corals at the 1 setting. I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly. Thanks u so much Hygger for all the amazing equipment u offer. Sealed very well and the shipping was next day.

"5gal tanks."

As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. When I added this light my plants where not looking well at all. For the price these lights are incredible. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light.

"They are pretty clear."

It can penetrate deep into the tank and grow corals. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light. This light has some great intensity to it. For the price these lights are incredible. I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me.

"5 inch units."

Another note, there are more blue LED than red LED. Check out the photos on this 20 gallon grow out tank. So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. I purchased this item for my daughters Aqua plant tank.

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.

PAR readings were taken with an apogee par meter. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price.

"I have a 120 gal."

I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. Another note, there are more blue LED than red LED. I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top. I am running 20 something aquariums and have multiple lights running in my fishroom. The built-in schedule will restrict you which is super annoying. This is the second Nicrew light I have purchased for my aquariums. There IS a purple hue to this fixture.

"Definitely submersible."

I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top. Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase. Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck. The person I sold them to had one start smoking and burnt out the white channel. We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long. It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER!

It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for. Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. I thought they were fairly easy to set up. Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived. So my ALL Blues run alone one hour before and an hour after. I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours. I purchased 2 of these lights for my 90 gal reef tank.
