Advanced LED Strip Light

I do not want to utilize the timer feature. Is there any way to set this light to manual mode only so it only turns on when the button is pressed?

* 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!!!!!!!!!!
Asked by: EMROWI
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. MINI

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.
Asked by: Tankplanter
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. BREX

No, a glass canopy is required to protect it from splashing and condensation. It is water resistant, but not water proof. BREX

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?
Asked by: nyyanks937
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. MINI

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!
Asked by: meagan0340
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. BREX

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

I've only had mine a month I bought it off Amazon loved it then it just stopped working
Asked by: Cody1977
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. BREX

Good For Plants?

I have a 55 gal marineland tank with the basic LED lights that it came with, I have some different low-med light plants and am not getting as much growth as I would like (use liquid co2 and ferts too). Will this be a good light for plant growth? (right spectrum/output). Thanks so much for any help!
Asked by: Honeygirl
No, these do not provide the correct spectrum. They are only 5500 Kelvin. I would add the Accent LED in Red or the Hidden LED. Or completely switch to glass canopies and utilize the Aquatic Plant LED. BREX

Marineland Advanced LED Aquarium Strip Light

Can the Marineland Advanced LED Aquarium Strip Light be used to grow corals in a 10 gallon reef tank
Asked by: slugger
Ideally you would need a light that is within 10,000 and 14,000 kelvin with PAR of at least 150 at 12" (for low light corals such as mushrooms.) Our Advanced LED light may sustain very low need corals, but we could not guarantee these results as the PAR and kelvin ratings are much lower (PAR ranging from 61-102 @ 12" varying on light length and kelvin temps in the low 6000 range.) For any reef tank, we would recommend our Marineland Reef LED lighting system. ML2

My new 18-24-inch light is blinking and showing a malfunctioning clock

Sorry, I initially posted this to the wrong product (non-programmable light). I think I'm on the right one now! I just unpackaged this light and plugged it in about half an hour ago. It initially showed the 3:00 time and shone steadily for about 5 minutes, and then suddenly began to blink off and on. The clock isn't working right, it flashes from 1111 to 2222 etc. through to 9999, then goes to 3:00 where the light flashes on (whites) twice. Then the display goes back to 1111, and the cycle repeats. What am I doing wrong? What should I do to fix it?
Asked by: China
Not sure that you can fix it. Are you plugging straight into an outlet or a powerstrip? If straight into an outlet, try to plug into a power strip with surge protection in case it is a voltage issue. If this does not work, return to vendor for an exchange. BREX

Wattage output and product suggestions requested

I have a 46g euro/bow front tank (36"L x 16.5"D at widest point of the bow x 21"H) with full glass only canopy. The ensemble came with 2 connected/in-line white and blue led light bars that snap into place along the front edge, hidden. These seem to be efficient enough, but I have a planted tank (low to medium light requirements) and am looking to upgrade the lighting. Prior to this ensemble, I have never dealt with LED tank lighting and am needing to know what the wattage output is for the 36" option. Using the lowest average of 4 watts/gallon, I need a minimum output of 184 watts. What is the wattage output of your Advanced LED strip light? And your Aquatic Plant lighting system? Which option would suit my needs best? As appealing as they are, seeing as how I have a bow front, your offerings of Hidden LED and Accent LED strips are not applicable. Finally, my tank has a 2" wide black plastic separator/support in the middle running front to back. Given your light assemblies sit on top of the glass (as opposed to my current strips which mount under the glass), will this cause any issues with proper light disbursement throughout the tank? Thank you for your time and assistance!
Asked by: KA1OTE
I will address the wattage question first. Wattage actually addresses amount of energy the light uses, and not what the plants actually need. Years ago, with fluorescent lighting, it was just by trial and error that hobbyists discovered that 2-3 watts of light would provide enough light for live plants in an aquatic environment. What your plants need is 6500 Kelvin. The Advanced LED is just under 6000 Kelvin, and has half the Lux requirement that the plants need. The Aquatic Plant LED is 6500 Kelvin, and has the amount of Lux (lumens essentially) that the plants require for proper growth, etc. That being said, most low light plants such as anubias, java fern, etc, will do alright under the Advanced LED (I've had a tank set up this way with much success) but to really appreciate a planted tank and reach its full potential, the Aquatic Plant LED is the way to go. By the way, if I quoted wattage to you, it would be vastly different, as LEDS use much, much less wattage than fluorescent bulbs. In regards to disbursement of light, you just need to make sure the leds are not fully hidden from the plants via the middle hinge. I have a 38 gallon with the canopy and the Aquatic Plant LED Light, and the hinge has never been an issue. I have to prune weekly, and my tank is bursting with plants of all sorts. BREX
