I am almost done switching all my tanks to LED. They use less power, no mercury, and work great. You can use one led bulb or three led bulbs. Mix or match. Fish look great. They are sturdy fixtures. You can use two 24 inch fixtures for a 48 inch tank. They fit on the old hoods or versa tops. They have two bulb types, it come with one daylight bulb.
I would recommend this to a friend!

9 months and plants look great

I bought the 48" light strip for my planted 55 gallon tank and added 2 LED Day White Lamp's to make sure I would have enough light for the plants.
I had reservations about how well the LED's would work since all I had ever used in the past was fluorescent fixtures, even with a layer of duckweed across the top of the water it still delivered enough light to keep the plants below thriving.
(I mostly have amazon swords and other medium light plants, so I'm not sure how well it will work for plants requiring high light)
From now on this will most likely be the only light fixture I will put on my tanks.
I would recommend this to a friend!

the poster above me should keep in mind that par and lux are used for leds.the wpg rule is antiquated and only worked for large tanks in the first place. lumens are what flourescent light users with small tanks should be using.

I have this running on my 75gal soft coral reef tank. It started out as a fowlr but some of my soft corals in my other reef tank were starting to get quite large so i trimmed and decided to move them and see how the light would preform. I use 1 daylight and 2 colormax and my soft corals are doing great. They are growing just as fast as they did in my other tank. They are low watt but you can't go by watts to measure led effectiveness. They light up the tanks nicely and make the color of my fish pop. They also give the neat shimmer effect that my MH bulbs do on my big reef tank. I got in contact with Aqueon and they said they are releasing an Actinic strip in a couple months so they should be even better for soft corals. Good product at a Great price you can't go wrong

Waste of money

The reason you can't find out how many watts these things have on the website is because they don't want you to know its terribly low! For the 20" each led strip has 2 watts, that means if you spend an extra 44$ on the 2 that dont come with it you get up to 6 watts, I have this on a 5.5 g tank which gets me just barely over 1wpg and that means no plant growth. The people that buy low watt led lights would be the ones that don;t get real decorations(plants) because they are too expensive, so who is going to buy a light this expensive? Not to mentions how depressing the lighting looks, no colormax doesnt change a thing, it still looks terrible and dim.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
