"So we used tape."

PAR readings were taken with an apogee par meter. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible. I've had other Nicrew lights on other tanks and they have all performed well for me. It's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great. I'm very happy with the light performance. I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate.

WEAVERBIRD Final Thoughts

"I'd recommend it."

I purchased 2 of these lights for my 90 gal reef tank. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals. I am so in love with this lights and looking forward to start a new planted tank. The second pic is my old Top Fin light for comparison. I've had other Nicrew lights on other tanks and they have all performed well for me. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great.

"Using on 37 gal cube."

It has multiple settings, dimmer and a TIMER! If you're considering using the LED stick-on lights to upgrade- don't bother. For the price range of this light that is truly outstanding customer service. Even the torch, frogspawn and brain at the bottom of the tank is doing well. I would highly recommend this light for anyone looking. Also note this is an initial impression review. The timers are exactly what I needed to create sunrise and sunset effect.

"The lightning is great."

The purple hue bugged me that much I returned it. My standard 10 gallon tank's hood finally crapped out on me. I purchased 2 of these lights for my 90 gal reef tank. All my plants doubled in size in a month as shown in the pictures. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants.

"I have two reef tanks."

Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. The corals look beautiful and the color spectrum is great. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light. This light does a great job and grows plants in a rapid rate. It's so bright, I was concerned that I would bleach the corals at the 1 setting. This one beats them all and now Im going to have to get back into some stem plants. Thanks u so much Hygger for all the amazing equipment u offer.

I purchased this item for my daughters Aqua plant tank.

"It is awsome!"

I added a moon light separately and all is good. This will also give you the blue lights while the whites are on throughout the day. The entire process took only a few days. I eventually saw the tracking slip and it was terrible. This light is amazing, especially for the price. I purchased this item for my daughters Aqua plant tank. This tank is 15 years old with lps and sps corals.

"Using on 37 gal cube."

Most lights make it still so dark you can't see. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. I bought the smaller one without realizing it. Sadly I can't really use it yet because the glass canopy I ordered hasn’t arrived. I would highly recommend this light for anyone looking. Best of all you see the true color of your plants and fish. I actually thought the tank had constant algae blooms before I got this light.

"The brackets work nicely."

The remote that comes with the light leaves a lot to be desired. Trust me u will not be disappointed! I'd use it for a frag tank or maybe even a coral QT. I now own 2 of these lights and I love them. It's a simple design, easy and intuitive to set up, adjustable and fits great. I think the blue lights are meant to be an evening light. They are so much nicer than the florescent lights that came with my tanks.

"The blues are beautiful."

I may purchase this if I decide to start a frag tank. The following Monday they shipped a new power supply. If you're considering using the LED stick-on lights to upgrade- don't bother. The timer works well, and I love that there are different intervals. The second pic is my old Top Fin light for comparison. No pictures because the camera on the phone couldn't pick it up. I can set it for 3-12 hours so helps save me sometime before work in the morning.

"BUYER BE WARE."

It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first. That said, I tried it out today and it's gorgeous! I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted. Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well. ‍♂️Rgbw, Multiple settings, 3 stage timer.

"I have two reef tanks."

I really wanted to like this light, but ultimately it didn't work for me. The entire process took only a few days. The built-in schedule will restrict you which is super annoying. It's not too bright and not too dim. The ramp timer also seems to help the fish and shrimp a lot, especially newer ones. This lights had the reviews i was looking for. Overall, this appears to be a good light for the price.

"So far A+ rating."

When I disassembled it- I found the light had no seal on either end cap. Compared to the original Classic, the Plus model is a very nice upgrade. I purchased 2 of these lights for my 90 gal reef tank. When I added this light my plants where not looking well at all. It should be much further down the cord so that it can be hidden if desired. You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. I've had other Nicrew lights on other tanks and they have all performed well for me.

" just in case."

I have to once again sing praises for this light and company. I got my light today couldn't wait to put it on my blackwater tank. But now was an opportunity to upgrade. Few months ago I decided to try my hand at propagation coral. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. They did well enough during the time I had them. The plants love it and it's easy on the eyes.

"Acting completely normal."

They are so much nicer than the florescent lights that came with my tanks. I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. I thought they were fairly easy to set up. The 300w light is 16lbs, so I wouldn't trust using drywall anchors to mount it. Suprized how well it lights up this tank. Programming the lights was a breeze, and it lights up my tank well. Therefore you cannot use this fixture on a customer timer.

" just in case."

You just position it over the glass strip where the old strip light used to sit. I have the tank set up as a riverine system, but fairly well planted. The adjustable brightness levels are awesome too. The timer mode utilized seems like the only timer mode I wouldn't really ever want. I've had these lights for three weeks and so far they are AWESOME. Now thanks to this light they are not only surviving but thriving also. Overall, this LED light gives new fish tank owners the best bang for the buck.
