"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.

"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.

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.

"I couldn't be more happy."

When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. Suprized how well it lights up this tank. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price. Overall build quality is really good. So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. I am so in love with this lights and looking forward to start a new planted tank.

"I'd recommend it."

I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. I just set them up today so I will adjust and update this review accordingly. The last pic is the blue setting on the NICREW light. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted. I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible. But now was an opportunity to upgrade.

"Before I begin!"

I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them. My only complaint is the missing seal. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light.

"My cats love it!"

I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. This will also give you the blue lights while the whites are on throughout the day. I have a very big 55 gallon corner tank that had a big hood on the top. So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. This light coming in at 6500 kelvin is perfect! I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning.

"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."

So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. This light has some great intensity to it. This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. I am running 20 something aquariums and have multiple lights running in my fishroom. The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect. This is another awsome product from hygger. However, each brings a distinct look to the tank.

"I am loving it so far!"

I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. My only concern is that the lowest setting is very bright. All my plants doubled in size in a month as shown in the pictures. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. We just run the bright lights during the day.

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.
