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

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 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Built for Aquarium Moisture Light failed just after one year due to rust inside the light switch: The switch would no longer move between on/off/blue. Initially not a big deal, as it finally froze in the on position, and we simply hooked it to a timer. After another couple months, however, the light quit altogether due to rust in the plug at the light, itself. This product is not built to handle the moisture inherent in an aquarium environment, and it makes me suspect of other Marineland products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would be great if these lights could be repaired this light and hood combination came on a 20 gallon Marineland tank setup I purchase from Petsmart. the light works OK it's only good for a freshwater aquarium it definitely should not be used for saltwater unless you just have a few fish. the light is bright but not overly bright I really actually liked it when it worked but within a year three different LED lights have gone out and only two blue lights still work there is no way to repair it there is no bulbs to replace you just simply have to throw away something else in the trash and buy another one. when looking at LED lights look at the life span in hours and divided by the number of hours of daily use and you'll see this one really not designed to last very long.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good general purpose hood. My cat has a love/hate relationship with the 30 gallon version of this hood. She likes the broad surface to sit on and chase the blue gourami but she hates the splashing from the Bio wheel filter. As for me I like it for the most part but one of the hinge clips snapped just a week after installation making opening the hood a two handed operation. Overall a good buy for the money but I'm not sure I'd buy the same again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall quality product without the doorbuster price tag I bought 2 of these (24", 30") as my 1st LED hoods as I am a purist and I couldn't be happier with both hoods. I was so happy that I purchased a kit from a local big chain store but the error was the brand I bought thinking it was LED just like my 1st two........BIG mistake! I bought a 55 gal. Top Fin kit with LED hoods & all around they are inferior to Marineland brand. The Marineland brand has a day/night feature that my Angelfish luv......especially when tending fry. The hood hinges work great whereas the Top Fin had zero ways to attach it to the tank (even though it was a "kit" which means it should be complete except water & fish) My only complaint is the lack of details relating to the PAR values for these products as the old watt/gal rule is null with LEDs. I would definitely add this to the store packaging & the leaflet accompanying the hood.

Do you sell an improved replacement LED insert module? I've had the 30 inch hood for 18 months but the LED module no longer works. I'm guessing the humidity corroded the contacts, since rust appears on that part.

Asked by: French Guy Bob
Yes, we do. It is item 32996. It is sold through local fish stores, pet specialty stores like Petsmart and Petco, and online, through various vendors. We do not sell direct, unfortunately.BREX

I Purchased 2 months ago 24x12 LED light hood and switch is broken already. only way to turn it on or off is to plug it out of power outlet. is this part under warranty or I Need to waste another $80.00 for new light?

Asked by: Andelko
First, the unit and the hood itself have a one-year warranty and we would happily replace it for you under the warranty. A direct email via the contact us page or a toll free call to 1-800-322-1266, and we can assist you. We will need either a copy of your receipt or the lot code off of the light itself as well.Second, the light is actually sold separately as the LED Aquarium Light, and the MSRP is between $40 and $60. Sold by itself, there are additional costs for packaging, handling, shipping, etc, that are taken into account.BREX

Do the LED lights in these hoods provide the proper spectrum for aquatic plants?

Asked by: ctonyperry
No, they do not. They are equal to a single standard fluorescent tube, about 5000K.You would need the Advanced LED Light Strip for low light plants and the Aquatic Plant LED for high light plants.BREX
