It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for. I like that it has a timer built into the control module too. Programming the lights was a breeze, and it lights up my tank well.

"I'd recommend it."

I purchased 2 of these lights for my 90 gal reef tank. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. Will purchase from them again in the future, highly recommended. It illuminates my 20g long fish tank entirely and perfectly. It's not too bright and not too dim. I have seen no flickering or pulsing of these lights as reported by other reviewers. I am running 20 something aquariums and have multiple lights running in my fishroom.

"What a pain!"

Wanted to return it but decided to keep it for my quarantine tank. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. It's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great. PAR readings were taken with an apogee par meter. Another note, there are more blue LED than red LED. I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours.

"It does not feel cheap."

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'll elaborate in a bit."

You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. No bad algae, Corals show great expansion, nice growth, and good coloration. 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. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly. Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. They are so much nicer than the florescent lights that came with my tanks.

"Thanks Julio!"

I'd use it for a frag tank or maybe even a coral QT. I am so in love with this lights and looking forward to start a new planted tank. I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service.

My plants have been pearling by late evening since installing the light. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted.

"Switch has 3 settings."

It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light. When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck. It's so bright, I was concerned that I would bleach the corals at the 1 setting. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. The last pic is the blue setting on the NICREW light. Suprized how well it lights up this tank.

But now was an opportunity to upgrade. My main display has been running with ecotech radions. You just position it over the glass strip where the old strip light used to sit. My main display has been running with ecotech radions. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. This light coming in at 6500 kelvin is perfect!

"But for a DISPLAY."

Overall build quality is really good. I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. Another note, there are more blue LED than red LED.

Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. There IS a purple hue to this fixture. I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me. I am so in love with this lights and looking forward to start a new planted tank. It's not too bright and not too dim.

"I hope this light lasts."

The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect. This light is amazing, especially for the price. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. I was skeptical about only having 3 lighting types at first.
