Show off your shimmer! Now it is easier than ever to get energy-efficient LED lighting on your aquarium. These full aquarium hoods use an integrated LED Light to create shimmering light in your aquarium. 

  • LED Aquarium Light integrates into sleek, modern hood
  • White LEDs for Day Light and Blue LEDs for Night Light 
  • 3-position switch: On/Off/Blue
  • One-year performance warranty

Marineland® offers three sizes of the LED Aquarium Hoods, which fit most manufacturers’ aquariums on the market today. The LED Aquarium Light snaps into the sleek, contemporary aquarium hood, and is protected by a clear lens that is removable for cleaning. 

Each LED Aquarium Hood comes with at least two sets of frame clips that allow the hood to be attached to the aquarium frame. The frame clips provide easy access to the aquarium while feeding or performing maintenance. 

The Marineland LED Aquarium Hoods are easy to setup, easy to operate, and easy to maintain. The feeding door at the front of the hood is removable to provide easy access to the aquarium for feeding. If left in, lift the hood to feed. There is ample space toward the back of the hood for accessories such as heaters and airline tubing. Using a larger filter? Cut out the marked filter panel on the back of the hood to fit. 


  • Long lasting, Energy efficient - saves money on your electric bill
  • No mercury in LEDs, making them better for the environment than traditional aquarium lighting
  • Daylight LEDs create a shimmering light that mimics the natural underwater effect of sunlight
  • Nightlight LEDs allow for nighttime enjoyment of the aquarium
  • 3-position switch: On, Blue, Off
  • Hinged for easy access


The 20" x 10" does not have an additional cut out for larger filters.
LED Aquarium Hoods is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Similar bad experience I guess I should have looked at the reviews online before I purchased, because our experience with this light is similar to what others have posted. The light stopped working after about 9 months. The contacts where the power source plugs into the lighting unit corroded due to the aquarium moisture and the tip broke off inside the unit. After looking for a replacement it looks like it would be cheaper to purchase an entire new aquarium set than to replace just the light or light/hood combo! Unfortunately I didn't jump on this situation right away and now that a few more months have passed we are just outside of the warranty period so I am sure I am just out of luck. Definitely do not recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Light Light only last about one year. Way too expensive to replace. Can't buy just the removable light instead of buying the whole lid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light I have had this hood and light set up for 3 years now and I am just now looking to replace it because the lights are dimmer now. It has worked wonderfully for my fresh water pants as long as I clean the plastic protector every few weeks. I will be buying this very same product to replace my current one! It's amazing!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not sure yet I bought one in July 2015 and by May 2016 it was flickering. I contacted Marineland customer service, asked about the 1 year warranty and they shipped one out immediately, no questions asked. Hopefully this one past a little longer 0. It's great when it works maybe they could improve longevity.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Light Setup Is Beautiful Til It Fails I've replaced these twice and now it needs done AGAIN. Ridiculous.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful Lighting This hood didn't last a year. The lights starting flickering in and out, the switch had to be delicately centered just right or the lights wouldn't come on at all, and the hinges broke within 6 months. Will not purchase again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT A GOOD PRODUCT FOR THE PRICE Light failed before a year due to rust inside the light switch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I purchased two and with in a few months of use, in each the white light started blinking on and off like a strobe light. No more LED for me. Back to good old fluorescent.

I purchased the new slim 10 gallon from Pet Co in Topsham, Maine the night of January 20, 2017. One of the led lights flickered for about an hour that night but then stayed on. About two weeks later that one went out, now the middle one is out. Help?

I have this hood and was wondering if the LED light that comes with it is suitable for a planted tank. If not do you have any recommendations for a retrofit?

Asked by: Dtourd
We do not recommend live plants with this LED, although some low light plants placed directly below it may do okay. The Hidden LED Lighting System, http://www.marineland.com/Products/aquarium-lighting/LED-Aquarium-Lighting/freshwater-saltwater-reef-aquarium-led-lighting-system.aspx, is designed to clip to the top frame of a tank, and remain hidden, while supplying amazingly bright light. It has a Kelvin rating of 6500K and is perfect for live plants. You could add this in, and have more than enough light for lovely planted tank. BREX

I have a 55 gallon tank. Dimensions are 36.5" W x 18.5"L. What size hood can I use?

Asked by: Senatorfan
Thank you for your interest in this Marineland product! This is not a 55 gallon, however. Depending on the height, it is most likely a 40 gallon Breeder tank. We do not make a LED hood that is 36" long, unfortunately. Our recommendation would be a glass canopy with a LED Strip Light or Advanced LED Light on top. BREX

I took out the feeding door by accident and don't know how to put it back in, can you help?

Asked by: susierodgers123
Great question! It's not easy. You have to line it up sort of at an angle so the tab will slide into the groove along the backside of the opening. BREX
