Good light/bad features
Posted: 12/11/2014 from Greenville, NC
The fixture itself is well made and the led's are very bright, producing high PAR values. Customer service isn't always the most helpful but very nice. It is also hard to beat the limited lifetime warranty. However, there are many issues with this light. The biggest problem is the controller. It has a great "day" setting, which ramps light intensity up and down to simulate the sun rising and setting. Problem is, you cannot run lunar lights in that setting. To run the lunar lights you have to run the light in "auto" mode, which only gives you 2 program points. It would be nice if there were more program points so you could actually simulate sunrise/sunset.The other major issue is the 90 degree optics, especially the "pink", which will spotlight anything near the surface. I really wish AquaticLife would have been more specific about the light details, as they are very misleading.
