How can you use this LED lighting system on an acrylic tank without the heat from the lighting system warping the top of the acrylic tank? This has occurred to my new 55 gallon tank.
Good morning! This light fixture should be just fine in regards to being used with an acrylic tank as the heat from the lights does not go toward the tank, but is emitted from the top of the light fixture to prevent any heat dispersal.

What lighting configurations do you recommend for a 125g Marineland tank?
I was not planning to put glass lids on this tank or a canopy. I do not see a 72" LED model. Is there a way to put 2 - 36" on the tank sitting next to each other without sliding off and in the water? Or am I forced to used glass lids?
This is not an official Marineland answer, just an idea I had. You could cut the bent "foot" off of one of the supplied legs, which would give you two straight pieces left over. Use these two pieces to 'connect' two fixtures together at the corded end. Put full legs on the control end of each fixture and mount to the tank edges. This will put the power cords of each light in the center of the tank with about two inches of gap between the light fixtures. The straight pieces might be long and strong enough to support the light fixtures in the middle of the tank. If not, you could support the middle by tying a piece of fishing monofilament to the cords and suspending from the ceiling. You can adjust the gap between the lights by extending the outer legs slightly, but it will probably be a minimum of 1-inch gap to account for the strain relief of the cords. The drawback to this project is you have destroyed one of the legs permanently. You might be able to find a substitute piece of rod for the connection in the middle.

what the gallon rating?
I recently had a friend buy your 36" high intensity strip lights for his 90 gallon fresh water tank, and he had to supplement the tank with more lighting ? How many gallons is the light rated for ? I haven't found anything about that online or in your questions. Nor do you have the gallon rating in the information on the lights. Would really appreciate an answear as I'm interested In buying myself one of your high intensity strip lights but I don't wanna have to put supplement lighting on my aquarium.
We do not make a "gallon rating" because they are intended for tanks of the length of the light. For example, a 48" - 60" long light will fit tanks from 55 gallons to 250 gallons. All of these tanks are 48" -60" long. However, when selecting a light, you need to know what the light is intended for and then what type of Kelvin rating, etc, is needed to accomplish that goal.
The Advanced LED is an extremely bright light at 6000 Kelvin. It is intended for tanks with freshwater fish only, but it will even support low light plants in most tanks. Tanks that are particularly deep, like a 150 gallon for example, would require two of these strip lights, one in front, one in back.
These are not "high intensity" lights. High intensity lights are typically ones with power compact or metal halide bulbs.

I misplaced instructions for my Advanced Light Strip and need to reprogram on/off times.Would you please send me instructions. Thank you!
Recently I have noticed the aquarium floor substrate developing green patches in some areas. I noticed my water temperature was a bit cooler than normal, although within safe range of thermometer (72-74). Also, over the last few months I have been adding sand to replace what has been gradually removed from siphoning during cleaning. Any ideas of what may be causing this? Just did a small RO water change (10 gallons) in my 77 gallon tank and had green spots reappearing after just 1 day. My tank is corner unit bow front Venenzia 350 model. Any suggestions and/or recommendations appreciated. Thank you.
Yes, we will email the instructions to you directly.
Green spots just indicate algal growth. Nutrients cause algae as does excess lighting or the wrong lighting. The cool water would not cause algal growth, quite the opposite. Algae thrives in warm waters. In order to help pinpoint the cause, we would need to know more about your maintenance routine and stocking levels. However, we would recommend cleaning the RO unit, doing water changes more often, and cutting back on food as first steps to solving the issue.

Blue LEDs Not Turning Off
The blue LEDs on my Advanced LED Strip Light will not go off. They stay on regardless to what the timer function has programmed or me physically pushing the blue button. I tried cycling power (unplugged and then plugged back in) but it still has the same issue. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Try leaving it off for a couple of hours (it sounded like you just turned it off briefly and then back on). If this does not work, it has a one year warranty so give us a call or email directly for assistance.

I have a 7' long 200g Oceanic tank with a glass top. Can I lay the fixtures directly on the glass or do they need to rest on the legs?
Will a 36-48 and a 48-60 sit side by side on this tank? Finally, which fixture should I buy... my tank is fresh water full of large African Cichlids so I currently have no live plants but I see a day when I convert back to live bearers and small fish and go back to a heavily planted tank. What light combo will give me sufficient light to grow plants well? Lastly, will the reef lighting support fresh water plants? I do not see me going to salt water ever, just saw the increased lumen output.
They can sit directly on the glass, that is not an issue. Two 36-48 inch lights will sit side by side, but a 36" and a 48" will not sit side by side as they would be too long. For plants, the Advanced LED works really well with low to moderate light plants. I have a heavily planted tank with such plants and they love that light. For high light plants, you would want the Aquatic Plant LED. The Reef LED will grow live plants, but unless the tank is really tall, it will also grow a lot of algae as it is much more than what plants need at 14000 Kelvin.

I have two Marineland 48" light strips and the lights just started blinking and will not stay lit.
Marineland 48" light and the light just started blinking and will not stay lit. the blue lights just flash, as well. There is a number on the light 01B34 and it has 12 sets of 3 lights for a total of 48 lights each. How do I repair this issue? Thanks Sam
Unfortunately, it may not be repairable, it depends on what is causing it. If it due to moisture because there is no glass canopy under it, there will be no fix. If you have had a canopy under it however, call or email us directly and we can try sending you a new power supply. The lights are almost 4 years old, according to the lot code, so there is no warranty otherwise.

Is this light good for a tank with coral and LPS?
I'm looking to replace my T5 lights and want to make sure this is the right choice for my corals.
No, this is only 6500 Kelvin, you would need the Reef Capable light, which is excellent for soft corals, but not generally recommended for hard corals.

what size would fit the entire width of a 30 gal tank? 36in? or higher? thanks
Depends on what you mean by a 30 gallon tank. A lot of people call the 29 a 30 gallon tank, and it is 30" long. If you own this one, the 24-36 inch LED is the one you need.
If you have a true 30 gallon tank, it is 36 inches long and you need the 36-48 inch light.

marineland LED light
The NH Aquarium Society was given a large donation of hardware for our annual auction. In the box was a Marineland LED ~22" strip light with no power cord. I can find some ID #'s
2VO-04VO, E237305, 1028. Another L-2 V001. What so I need for a power source? Do you sell them? How costly are they? Thank you, Don Van Pelt Secretary, Auction chair.
None of those numbers mean anything to us. The only number that is ever printed/placed on our led strip lights is the lot code. Everything else is on the transformer. We would need you to email a picture of the light to us along with the number of white lights vs. blue lights so we could narrow it down and determine what transformer you would need.

* What size light do I need? HELP! ;-)
-- I need a light for a 20 gallon long tank.
--- The length of the tank is 30 in.
---- Do I need 24-36 inches? Or 18-24 inches?
----- Please help!!!!!!!!!!
We would recommend that you use the 24-36" LED Strip Light, as the light would be about 22" long, and the lets would be able to adjust to the lenght of the tank properly.

What is the actual width?
What is the actual width of this unit. I would be interested in the 36" length but I can't find detailed info on the other dimensions. Can you please provide detailed dimensions for this as well as for the Aquatic Plant LED Light with Integrated Timer.
All of the LED light strips are 6" wide, and stand 2" tall. The actual lengths are 1.25" shorter than the shortest size in the range. For example, a 36" -48" Advanced light is 34.75" long, not including the legs. The legs can be adjusted from 36 to 48 inches.

Use on "open water"?
Can this light system use on top of my 'open water" tank?
No, a glass canopy is required to protect it from splashing and condensation.
It is water resistant, but not water proof.

In a previous answer you said this light is only for freshwater. Then why does it say it is for freshwater and saltwater in the item description?
The LED strip light can be used in a fallor tank (saltwater fish only), but cannot sustain any coral growth at all. Typically we see that saltwater hobbist, tend to grown into reef hobbiest and this will not be the proper light source. Therefore, we typically do not recommend the use of this light on a regular basis.

Can this light grow coral?
I am thinking about purchasing a marineland advanced led light. I know it says twice the light as florecent but I want to know if it's powerful enough to grow corals? Also I have a pink tip Haitian anemone and I was wondering if the wattage would be good for it too. I currently have a 29 gallon aquarium. Thanks for any and all help!
No, this light is not rated for marine at all. It is for freshwater fish only, but will grow some low light freshwater plants. You want the Reef LED Strip Light which is 14,000 kelvin.

What causes the Marineland Advanced LED Strip Light to go out?

If no lights are working at all, check to make sure the power supply is properly connected. You or a pet could have actually hit it and loosened the connection, not just at the plug, but where the transformer snaps into the pigtail cord, for example. If everything is connected correctly, then check the outlet or the power strip, and check for a green light on the transformer. If the transformer has failed, call us.
