Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expensive and didn't last I bought this 48" Plant LED unit from Amazon less than 2 years ago. Paid a premium for it while competitors were 1/3 - 1/2 the price. It worked well while it lasted until one day the control unit (white and blue buttons) just stopped working. Somehow the unit reset itself back to default settings and I cannot set it back. The lights still come on, but without the timer controls I cannot use this. The default timer sets this to be on 10 hours which is way too much light for my tank.Probably should have used that money and bought 2 or 3 of other competitors units at least I will have extra backups. Absolutely will not recommend this unit to anyone as long the price remain the way it is today.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great This product is easy to program and looks great, There are only 2 problems, one is that it gets really hot which isn't a big deal and two is that a year and two months after I got it the blue lights just stopped working, I only have the lights on for 10hrs a day and they still stopped working....that's quite a bit less than the projected 50,000 hour lifetime advertised on the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very user friendly I see great plant growth after just 5 days, and my fish are more active. It Has a nice shimmer effect. This replaced a SHO bulb and was a great replacement recommendation from barbara. It does run a tad warm as it has no fan to keep it cool, However it does not seem to affect performance. It can increase some algae growth, but if you limit the white lights to around 8 to 10 hours and do regular maintenance you should be able to keep algae to a minimum. I recommend either wiping the lenses off once a week or place a glass top on your tank to minimise hard water deposits on the lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 24-36" Plant light I was very pleased when I got the light to see the light is very well made. When I turned it on, my excitement level went up.The light is very bright and the moon light looks great. I have no doubt I can grow lush plants with this light.The timer just finishes off the great quality of the light. I will be buying an 18-24" light for my other tank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazing LED I received a 36" Fixture and loved it from the start. The design is sleek and modern which matched the look i was going for with a black metal stand. I ran the default setting on the light and was able to grow dwarf hairgrass and dwarf baby tears with out any problems. I was able to from a nice hairgrass carpet without CO2. Once I added CO2 I had to trim most of the fore and mid ground planted weekly. The build of te fixture is hardy and well designed. The heat plate on the top to absorb heat is a great feature.Overall its a great light. You don't need to combine it with another light to get great results like I read about some other LEDs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Got a couple of lemons Liight looks good but the timer did not work. Apparently simple to set, it kept resetting itself to some random time. I called tech support and they sent me a new timer. Same problem. They sent me a third one. Same problem. Bad day at the factory, I guess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A phenomenal product! I bought this light because my plants were dying no matter how many additives I added to the tank. Now they are growing out of control...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 48 inch model on my 75 gallon is fantastic. I have the 48 inch model on my 75 gallon. I can't believe how well the plants respond to this light. I thought that converting from silk to live plants might be difficult, but this fixture makes it easy. In the three weeks since I planted the tank and installed the fixture, I've grown a lush aquatic garden. This fixture is worth every penny I spent on it.

Will this fit the 60 gallon heartland tank?

I am looking to replace the lighting for my 60 gallon heartland tank with lights that support plant growth. I don't want an open top aquarium and am wondering what hood / light combinations would work for this.
Asked by: jpint
I would recommend a glass canopy and the 48-60 inch Aquatic Plant LED or you could keep using what you have, and simply add two of the Hidden LED lights. These attach to the top frame of the tank, and are hidden beneath it. BREX

I have had my 48 inch led plant light for 3 to 4 years last night half my blue lights went out

the other half are green and red when daylight lights are on but don't light up blue. How can I fix this?
Asked by: CLOwen
I doubt that you can. You could try a new transformer and see if there is a voltage issue. Call our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-322-1266 for assistance. Tell them I suggested you try a new transformer. We don't sell those, but we do send them out as needed. BREX

Plant growing lights for 55 gal kit

I purchased the 55 gallon kit from Petsmart. Do you have plant growing lights that I can replace kit led lights with.
Asked by: MaryAnn
We do not have anything that will fit exactly the little window in the hood. It is only 11.5 x 5 inches. However, you can keep using those leds and add the Hidden LED which connects to the top frame of the tank. It comes in a 17" width, so you will want two of them. BREX

RGB led lights on the aquatic led strip light

Just received my new Marineland Aquatic Plant Led strip light. After installation I see white led lights, and blue led lights, but I don't see RGB colors coming from the lights that I suppose are to provide them (the blue leds, right?) Looks straight blue to me. Does this mean the other colors are not there or that they just look blue and are actually there? If there's a problem, I need to know right away as the plants are very important to me, and in fact, that is why I purchased this fixture.
Asked by: PeggyA
They will just look blue to you as that is the predominant color. At certain angles you may sometimes see red or green, but it is not common. The bulbs do put out all three colors of the spectrum, even though you generally do not see the red or green colors. BREX

What size led plant light do I need for my 20 gallon planted acrylic tank?

It is 24" x 16" so on the tall side. Not sure whether to go with the 18" or 24" led light.
Asked by: tbunny
I would choose the 24-36 inch length which will give you much more light and fit the tank best. BREX

Which LED colors come on with White & Blue buttons

On the Plant Light versions of the LED lights the description show that there are White, Red, Blue and Green LEDs built into the unit. Ehen the White button on the timer is pressed I see all the White LEDs come on but I also see the RGB LEDs come on. Does pressing the Blue button on the timer turn on another set of Blue LEDs or does it just ensure that only the Blue portion of the RGB LEDs have power?
Asked by: TimothyBrungs
Good question! It just ensures that only the blue come on. BREX

Would I be able to replace my 24 gallon Nanocube hood with the Aquatic Plant LED? I want to switch out because the compact bulbs are becoming a pain.

It's a freshwater tank.
Asked by: Mike10
I'm not familiar with that particular hood so do not know if the led strip light will fit, but the plant light will definitely grow most any type of plant you wish to grow. It is for moderate to high light types of plants. BREX
