Comments: Excellent value for the money. No problem growing fresh water plants in my 70 gal tank. And, if I transition to salt/reef aquarium,I believe these lights would suffice.

Comments: I ordered this 18 inch LED fixture for my CPR Aquafuge 2 HOB unit. I wasn't expecting it to be a truly high output fixture based on the price. However, when I mounted it on the refugium and fired it up it was... WOW! This thing is unbelievably bright, much higher lumen output than I was expecting. In fact it's almost too much for the 3 gallon fuge. As a test I put it over a 20 long reef tank to see how a collection of acros oo Med lights and plan to order several more. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating is the lack of rampable controller.

Comments: Received my order of 2 36" light strips for my new 125 gallon freshwater setup with live plants. These LED strips put out a very bright white light. They also have a very nice blue night light affect that you can turn on or off with the white lights. Something i didn't know, both packages came with an adapter to link strips together, so I only need to use 1 plug to my timer. I saw these in use at my local fish store. Very happy with these lights. Very well made, I also love the fact that if one bank of lights stops working, I can just replace that set instead of getting an entire new light strip. They run a lot cooler too, under my canopy. Thanks!

Budget Option

Experience Level: Intermediate

Comments: This unit totals 10 Watts, 8 watts of 6000K (Daylight) white LED and 2 watts of 465 nm blue LED. Not excessively bright so not really for a true reef tank. Could possibly be enough for softies and some moderate LPS and lower light loving SPS. The blue LED's should really be brighter to help offset the yellowish white LED's. As the White LED's should really be 10,000K. My Zoa's don't have that nice flouresent tint to them as they normally do under bluer lighting so they do look that nice. Don't expect a lot, its good for that quarantine tank, fish only, starter budget tank, maybe even fresh water? For the current price its probably worth it to save the money and put it towards a better lighting fixture.
