"Looks great."

The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. The person I sold them to had one start smoking and burnt out the white channel. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. For the price you will not find a better light on the market. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light.

TOPBRY BP-004 Final Thoughts

"It is plenty of light."

It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. The person I sold them to had one start smoking and burnt out the white channel. When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. We've got wide 13 gallon tank that is about 23 inches long. The built-in schedule will restrict you which is super annoying. The remote that comes with the light leaves a lot to be desired. Overall build quality is really good.

"But it's awesome!"

Thia works fantastic for my 75 G salt tank. It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light. All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly. This light coming in at 6500 kelvin is perfect! Overall a good competitor to Nicrew. You just position it over the glass strip where the old strip light used to sit.

"We don't use that."

I initially planned to put this light on a 10 gallon with some javaferns and moss. For the price you will not find a better light on the market. The built-in schedule will restrict you which is super annoying. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. The Nicrew comes with 2 different brackets to make sure it fits your aquarium. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. I just put half inch molding around the lights so they don't move.

Finnex HLC-48 First Impressions

"These lights are great."

The entire process took only a few days. The daytime lights are MUCH brighter than the lights my Top Fin hood has built in. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. I added a moon light separately and all is good. Will purchase from them again in the future, highly recommended. So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer. Also note this is an initial impression review.

"I'd recommend it."

This is another awsome product from hygger. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. As long as you seal it before using it, it should perform well. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. I would highly recommend this light for anyone looking. I contacted Nicrew support over the weekend and received a reply within hours. It illuminates my 20g long fish tank entirely and perfectly.

"I'd recommend it."

Thanks u so much Hygger for all the amazing equipment u offer. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase. I initially planned to put this light on a 10 gallon with some javaferns and moss. 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. The corals look beautiful and the color spectrum is great. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great.

"Using on 37 gal cube."

Mainly keeping montiporas, Xenia, birds nest, gorgonians, various sinularia. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted. The entire process took only a few days. My main display has been running with ecotech radions. The entire process took only a few days. My only concern is that the lowest setting is very bright.

"I would recommend buying!"

My only complaint is the missing seal. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. It illuminates my 20g long fish tank entirely and perfectly. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up. No bad algae, Corals show great expansion, nice growth, and good coloration. 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.

"So far A+ rating."

The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. Both are quality lights, well built with excellent output. I am running 20 something aquariums and have multiple lights running in my fishroom. I changed my review and contacted Hygger. That said, I tried it out today and it's gorgeous! I added a moon light separately and all is good. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish.

"No remote."

The Nicrew comes with 2 different brackets to make sure it fits your aquarium. Overall build quality is really good. It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER! My main display has been running with ecotech radions. It's so bright, I was concerned that I would bleach the corals at the 1 setting. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. They truly stand behind their products for the full 1 year warranty.

Trust me u will not be disappointed! This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. I have to once again sing praises for this light and company. Most lights make it still so dark you can't see.

"It turns everything blue."

I got my light today couldn't wait to put it on my blackwater tank. No bad algae, Corals show great expansion, nice growth, and good coloration. It's been a few years since I left this review and thought I'd leave an update. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning. I'm very happy with the light performance. I just put half inch molding around the lights so they don't move. All my plants doubled in size in a month as shown in the pictures.

"5 inch units."

That sounded like a good plan to me so I agreed it was worth the risk. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted. I contacted NICREW they were great with customer service. Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well.

"Good build quality."

Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. I'd use it for a frag tank or maybe even a coral QT. Now thanks to this light they are not only surviving but thriving also. This light is even better than I expected! All of the LEDs appear to illuminate and the lights dim smoothly. It illuminates my 20g long fish tank entirely and perfectly.

"Highly recommended!"

I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me. So if you set it to white only, it will default to ALL lights on. Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck. So I contacted customer service and asked them to send me a new transformer. Sealed very well and the shipping was next day. When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. Just got this light today, and WOW!
