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 2.2 out of 5 by 5.
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 :(

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.

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?

Asked by: Wayne782
It actually has clips and clips to the back frame of the tank. It fits most tanks, 24" x 12", as it is universal in size. BREX

I own this hood, but all of the lights went out. Is there a replacement? Or do I have to buy the entire hood again?

Asked by: The Patricia
The light is indeed sold separately without the hood! It is called the Marineland LED Aquarium Light and is 11.5" long. Here's a link: http://www.marineland.com/Products/aquarium-lighting/LED-Aquarium-Lighting/freshwater-aquarium-led-light.aspx. It is sold through most local fish and pet stores, as well as the majority of vendors online. BREX

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?

Asked by: Tulolan
We would recommend the Penguin 100 or 150 for a filter, and the Precision 100 watt unless your house tends to be cold, then the Precision 150 would be better. BREX
