Aqueon 158085 First Impressions

The blues are beautiful.

When I ordered my second light it arrived with a dead transformer. They immediately sent out the package via UPS but UPS lost it. The last pic is the blue setting on the NICREW light. Cycling through brightness levels is awkward as well. This light is definitely amazing build quality and brightness for the price! You'll have to DIY it, and even then it might not look great. I purchased three of these for my 240 gallon reef tank and they work incredibly well.

Aqueon 158085 Final Thoughts

This light is awesome!

I plan to upgrade all of my aquariums to this light. The built-in schedule will restrict you which is super annoying. Has all the functions I need and want, and I am happy with this purchase. If necessary, I'll just buy one more and I'm sure I'll be fine. I really like that I can get a 24-hour effect with the timer. My plants have been pearling by late evening since installing the light. It's not an issue now that I understand it, but I thought it was broken at first.
