"5 betta tank."

Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. Thia works fantastic for my 75 G salt tank. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer. Overall build quality is really good. If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. However, each brings a distinct look to the tank. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want.

"Love this light!"

It's not too bright and not too dim. Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. There IS a purple hue to this fixture. Trust me u will not be disappointed! The adjustable brightness levels are awesome too. Overall a good competitor to Nicrew.

2. Finnex Stingray LED Clip Light for Aquarium

"I hope this light lasts."

Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output. It can penetrate deep into the tank and grow corals. That sounded like a good plan to me so I agreed it was worth the risk. Like most led strips, this is low profile and thin. This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price.

"It's a good light."

So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase. I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours. The built-in schedule will restrict you which is super annoying. 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. My main display has been running with ecotech radions.

"5 betta tank."

I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. Its sold in different lengths and worked great for this light. The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect. The 300w light is 16lbs, so I wouldn't trust using drywall anchors to mount it. Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them.

"Not with this light!"

I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. Now thanks to this light they are not only surviving but thriving also. I've had these lights for three weeks and so far they are AWESOME. The entire process took only a few days. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. This light coming in at 6500 kelvin is perfect! The built-in schedule will restrict you which is super annoying.

"Definitely submersible."

Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. I initially planned to put this light on a 10 gallon with some javaferns and moss. But now was an opportunity to upgrade. So these lights obviously can produce SPS required PAR light levels. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. PAR readings were taken with an apogee par meter.

"It is awsome!"

For the price you will not find a better light on the market. This light is definitely amazing build quality and brightness for the price! 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. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish.

If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. This is another awsome product from hygger. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer. Overall a good competitor to Nicrew. As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well.

"Actual length of the 7."

It does give a nice look though if that's what you're going for. But I will stick with the Nicrew classic LED PLUS as it also has full spectrum. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price. The plants love it and it's easy on the eyes. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. It can penetrate deep into the tank and grow corals. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light.

The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. It's the best bang for your buck for a minimal reef light. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. Like most led strips, this is low profile and thin. There IS a purple hue to this fixture. It's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great.

"The brackets work nicely."

Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well. The built-in schedule will restrict you which is super annoying. Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output. I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. I just put half inch molding around the lights so they don't move.

It's been a few years since I left this review and thought I'd leave an update. I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well. Another note, there are more blue LED than red LED. I thought they were fairly easy to set up. This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. I purchased three of these for my 240 gallon reef tank and they work incredibly well.
