Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKED FOR ME I bought my 1st one in 2014. Light switch worked fine until 1st of this year. No problem with hinges. IF i had a complaint it would be about the "window" for the light which is acrylic and DISCOLORS so clean OFTEN. I am ordering my 2nd one today so you can tell i think it is a good buy, etc.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great light if the switch lasted Have had the hood for under 2 month and the switch is already broke. You have to force it in place for night setting and the day setting barely works

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great light, Poor Quality Hinges The color of the LED is ok - not as good as incandescent, but still makes the tank look good. But the quality of the hinges is garbage. I only switched to an LED hood to be more energy efficient (I simultaneously changed all of my home lights to LEDs). The hinge that connects the hood to the tank broke after 6 months. Shocked at the poor construction.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't last long On our second light in our 10 gallon tank. They only last a few months before the switch malfunctions. Petsmart doesn't seem to carry them any longer. Looking for another option.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Light works great, but the 2 hinges broke easy. Love the look of this hood on my tank, and the LED light works great for me. However the hinge system that holds the hood on broke after only about 5 months. They are hinged by a very thin plastic bar on the lid. Now when I open my hood I have to keep it from falling in the water. Pretty disappointing because I have been a Marineland customer for years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Light doesn't last. The hood is nice on my 30 gallon tank, but the light only lasted about a week. I'm looking for a replacement.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointing switch has never worked right Within 2 weeks of setting up my tank the switch was glitchy and now after 2 months I have to tape it to keep it on. So sad cause the rest of the kit is great

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the good but light does not last I love the features and simplicity of this good but I've had it for less than 6 months and the switch for the light just broke! Completely stuck in place no matter what I do. Was just about to plant some aquatic plants in there this afternoon too :(
Date published: 2017-04-08
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the two light features hate they don't last Love the bright light and then the dumb blue for at night just hate that they don't last long. Had mine for just over a year and go figure it stops working. For a light to cost so much you would expect it to last longer than it does. As nice as this product was in the beginning I don't think I would waist that kind of money on a light like this one again.

I'm a novice...have 10 gal and just bought this hood. Can anyone tell me what specific live plants to use with this LED lighting? Thanx.

Asked by: jtango
This hood is not rated for live plants, however, anubias, java fern, and crypts will generally do okay with it. For higher light needy plants, add a Hidden LED which will snap to the front frame of the tank. BREX

Is there a way to prop this open. It rests awkwardly on the Penguin 200 filter [29-gallon tank] when open. Also is there a way to remove it completely for tank maintenance?

Asked by: RKlier
Yes, it has hinges that should hold it up for you. Also, you can remove it from the hinges, although that has to be done pretty carefully, and can be tricky. BREX

Does this hood fit over the top edge of the tank or does it sit on the little "lip" inside the top? The "lip" on my tank is about 23.125 x 11.5. The tank itself is 24x12x16.5. Will the 24x12 LED Light Hood fit my tank?

I have been wanting to find a led light system to use on a 29 gallon tank growing low light plants in a terrarium. Are there any marineland hoods that would serve this purpose?

Asked by: mark99
Hello mark99, This LED hood light will grow some low light plants for aquatic purposes such as java fern, anubias, etc., however, the light itself is only 11.5" long and does not stretch the entire length of the tank. A couple of other options would include the Hidden LED in the 21" length or a glass canopy with the Advanced LED Light Strip. BREX

I have a 30 gallon tank and I like the day/night hood. Do you make one that fits a 30 gallon or what would y'all recommend for lighting?

Asked by: Matt S
Hi Matt S, If you truly have a 30 gallon tank, which is 36" long, no, we do not make a hood for it. We would recommend a glass canopy and the Advanced LED or the LED Light Strip. Both of these have blue and white lights, the Advanced LED has a timer, and slightly higher lumens. BREX

What filter and heater is compatible with the 20 gallon hood?
