Cool Looking Aquarium Lighting
By Some Blue Devil
I own a 55 gal tank with a split frame. Was getting tired of the old tank cover & light setup and decided to try these.
Because I haven't received the glass tops yet to replace the original covers, I installed these with the old covers in place. Just took out the fluorescent lamps and set these two LED lamps in their place.
They're a little shorter than the old lamps but that doesn't matter at all. I extended the brackets a couple of inches each side. There is plenty of light coming into the tank - it's pretty bright.
LEDs last much longer than fluorescent bulbs.
LEDs don't give out heat.
They're bright & clean lights.
Light-weight & easy to install.
The power cord is a bit short, esp if you have a larger tank like I do and need more than one lamp.
To avoid using extension cords and finding a new location for the timer, I had to set the two lamps with the switch and power cord sides facing each other (in the center).
Manual light setting: changing from light & blue mode requires manually pushing the switch.
It would have been nice to have a built in timer that automatically switches the daylight to moonlight setting.
Other than that I love these. I will take add'l photos once my new glass hoods arrive.

Nice light, somewhat bright night mode
By Adam France
One of my fish tanks has weird dimensions. 18 wide, 18 deep and 30 high. It's a pedestal tank and is a pain when it comes to purchasing accessories. Any 18" light a put on this tank is too wide because the frame and legs makes the light at least 20 inches so it hangs off the side. So I purchased the 12" model as there is no in-between.
The white light (day mode) is excellent, but the blue light (night mode) is a tad too bright. I wish the night mode was more subtle to just cast a midnightish illumination over the tank, but it tends to light up the tank too much. The light is sturdy and quality made, however I do wish the power cord were longer. It barely makes it to my power strip, but the tank it's used on is quite tall so it wouldn't be an issue on a regular tank. But it is a nice light.
