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.

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 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.

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.

I have a 24 x 12 aquarium hood with a led light. The switch on the light has gone bad. I was wondering if it's possible to purchase just the light module to go with the hood?

Asked by: Paul222
Yes, the light is sold separately through most fish and pet stores, as well as various vendors. It is simply called the Marineland LED Aquarium Light. Costs around $30-$35, depending on the retailer. If your light is less than a year old, however, you can call us and have it replaced under warranty. 1-800-322-1266BREX

The light for my 10 gallon is very dim. Barely on. I have the marine land Aquaium kit. Can I order just a light bar and how much are they? 

Asked by: Snowy
We do not sell direct, but light bars are indeed available separately through local fish stores, and various online vendors. It typically runs around $30. The light has a one-year warranty as well, and if you have had it for less than that amount of time, we urge you to call us directly at 1-800-322-1266.BREX

I need a hood for my 10 gallon saltwater tank. I have two clown fish, two cleaner shrimp, crabs and snails. Will this work? Is it as bright as the 15 watt florescent bulb?  I use the 50/50 bulbs. Is the quality of light similar? Do I need A lens cover? 

Asked by: Bob I
No, it is not of the same quality as a 50/50 light, it would be more like a normal fluorescent bulb. And yes, you need a lens cover to protect the light from the water.BREX

What is the actual size of the 24x12 LED hood.  The Marineland hood(s) I currently have are 11.5x23.  24x12 will be too big.

Asked by: buster33
All hood sizes that are advertised or promoted are rounded up in size. If you are currently using a Marineland hood, this one will also fit, but we are unable to provide actual hood measurements. BREX

I ordered the 10 gallon hood because of the advertised perforated filter hole extension. Other hoods just don't have a large enough hole. Well, I got the hood and it doesn't have any perforations to make the hole bigger... Options?

Asked by: Katmarie_14
The 10 gallon has an opening for a filter, but does not have the extended portion. Only the larger hoods have that extension. If you wish to use a larger filter than this hood will not work for you, unfortunately. I would recommend returning it for a glass canopy which has a plastic 2" strip along the back that you can cut to whatever length you prefer or need.BREX
