Comments: This is the best lighting system I have ever seen.
Marineland Double Bright LED
(Posted on 7/9/12)
Comments: This is a great light, the shimmering effect mimics that of the natural enviroment and the light is directed more in the tank rather than all around the tank on the floor. The light is not quite as bright as my dual buld T5 but the brightness is adaquate for a Fowlr or freshwater tank.If you are doing reef be sure to get the reef version of this light or put 2 of these side by side. The light is streamline and looks great on the top of the tank much better than the bulky T5 lights and generate much less heat. My fish seem to love the light. I highly recommend this light for any saltwater Fowlr or freshwater Tank, and the price is great.

Comments: I absolutely love this LED lighting system. The Day light is amazing and bright. It's the night glow that shows up my tank. I have glow-in-the-dark fish and they show up beautifully.

Comments: This product is great! Quality good. The lighting enhances the beauty of the tank. My family likes the blue light or 'night' light as we call it. It changes the atmosphere and looks so cool at night.
Outstanding LED lighting unit

Comments: Gone is the dull white haze of expensive, energy draining full spectrum tubes. Not to mention those awfully shoddy fixtures that haven't changed at least since I was a kid some 40 years ago.
Having looked into alternative lighting in the past, the setups were either too expensive, ran too hot or were difficult to install.
One thing is certain Marineland has a hit on their hands.
The unit is simplicity itself. A sleek and smart design it's as functional as it is beautiful.
Solid build quality, no need for special wiring - and installation is a breeze. Simply place it on to your glass canopy, turn it on and get ready to have your jaw drop.
The light from this unit is nothing short of gorgeous, it pours out crystal, pristine and brilliant. The "shimmering effect" is subtle and really quite remarkable - the Lunar mode is almost surreal it's so beautiful.
The unit itself is so incredibly thin, you'll have no trouble fitting your canopy over the top of your tank. The lights rest about 1/4 inch above the glass tops - and you'll of course want to place them in the back.
The end brackets are fully adjustable and make for a perfect, snap in fit.
There's a lot of bang for your buck here :
* The day light LED lights consume only 35 watts as opposed to 80 for a single fluorescent bulb.
* The Lunar LED lights are spectacular - and allow you to watch your fish without disturbing their natural sleep/rest cycle.
* Each LED is covered with a Polycarbonate lens - this not only protects the bulb, but helps to create the "shimmer effect" hobbyists are raving about.
* Everything you need is controlled by a single side switch. Daylight, Lunar and on and off.
Nothing I've seen re-creates the look of actual sunlight as perfectly as this - it's that spectacular.
Youl get an impressive 17,000 lifetime hours, Daylight mode, Lunar mode, an incredible Shimmer effect that's bound to just knock you out - and a whopping 1800 Lumens of clear, clean light.
