"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.

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.

"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.

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 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.

NICREW First Impressions

"5 betta tank."

So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible. 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. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. It's been about a month since the new LED light came in.

"I would recommend buying!"

What happens when you mix a lot of blue with a little red. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up. My plants have been pearling by late evening since installing the light. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light. The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. It's been a few years since I left this review and thought I'd leave an update.

"Its awesome."

I got my light today couldn't wait to put it on my blackwater tank. I purchased this item for my daughters Aqua plant tank. Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral.

So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in.

It's so bright, I was concerned that I would bleach the corals at the 1 setting. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it.

"They are pretty clear."

It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER! I just set them up today so I will adjust and update this review accordingly. Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. They truly stand behind their products for the full 1 year warranty. Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck.
