Question

Lighting for an old pentagon

I have one of your OLD pentagon aquariums. While the tank itself is holding up great, the lights, no so much. With dried cracking plastic and dry electric cords it is time to replace them. I have looked for replacement fixtures with no luck and I am hoping to find help here.

The old fixtures are 18 1/2 X 2 1/2 X 4 inches. These are two that originally came with the set up. Both hold one 15 watt' 18 inch T5 bulb. Where do I find these replacement fixtures? I am even willing to go to an LED or T5 HO type fixture if needed.

Thanks in advance.

The only hood with light fixture that we have available is for the 44 gallon pentagon. The light strip itself is not available separately. I would recommend the 18-24" LED light. I am not sure which of the LEDs to recommend, since I do not know what you require exactly in a light, but the light itself is 16 3/4" long. Just pull the legs out of each end, and rest it on the glass partition. It is closer to 6" wide, but you have approximately 1" of fixture space on each side of the bulbs themselves, so they should be centered perfectly over your tank.

Our lights have not been tested for ramp-up timers or dimmers. I do not think they will work and I suspect the built in timer would also create an issue. When the ramp-up timer resets to zero power it would be like a power outage to the light and our built-in timer would reset to 3:00.

Yes, it should be. Keep in mind you will have dark areas on the ends, so put your low light plants in those areas.

Question

How do you get the LED light to snap in place?

I have two 12x24 hoods with LED lights and neither one will snap in place. I'm ensuring the back two tabs are in place first, but then I can't get the front tab to snap in place. The LED is not secure and can fall out when the hood is raised. I have also tried a third LED light without success...what am I doing wrong?

I doubt you are doing anything wrong. It sounds like you are doing it correctly, and it is not that hard to snap them into place, so something else may not be right. Do they go down and sit loosely or do they refuse to go into place? The answer to this question would help us to determine what we need to do. I recommend you call into us at 1-800-322-1266.

If you are trying to use it for house plants, I don't have a definite answer for that, since we have never tested these in that application. However, as it grows aquatic plants, I would think that the light would be beneficial to house plants as well.

Question

18" to 24" reef capable lights

I have a double bright Marineland LED light and really like it but I was to upgrade to a Reef Capable. I talked to someone at a local saltwater fish dealer and they were saying they are not sure about your reef capable lights because they only have a blue and white light where as others have blue, white, red, green, ect. so they have more spectum feeding the corals. How does yours compare to the multi color reef lights?

The algae in coral have adapted over time to use blue light (420-460nm) for photosynthesis. The reason being is that red light is particularly weak and gets absorbed quickly by water. So in the depths of the ocean, blue, a much stronger wavelength, penetrates deeper. The red, green, amber LEDS…all those are to make your coral look nice, not actually “feed” them. If you are looking for supplemental light to showcase the beautiful reds and oranges in your tanks I recommend our Red Accent Submersible LEDs. They are affordable, have flexible mounting options and are easy to use.

Question

I bought my son the 10 Gallon BioWheel LED Aquarium Kit for Christmas (2013) and the LED lights have quit working.

It progressively got harder to switch from the day to night settings and now, when you push the switch back and forth, nothing happens. Is there a warranty for the lights? Do I need to talk to the petstore where I purchased it? Is this a normal problem?
Thanks for your help!

All of our leds have a one year warranty. Make sure to always use a glass canopy and a power strip with surge protection. If you are just past the one year mark, we will still replace it, give us a call.

Question

Interchangeable LED light panels for hood?

I was just given two of your LED hoods for my 55 gallon freshwater aquarium. I really like the design and setup of these hoods, and they light the aquarium well (for fish), but it would be nice if the lights were sufficient for live plants. I was wondering if Marineland has any plans to make interchangeable LED light panels for this hood design? For example, one could keep the same hood but swap out the current LED panel for one appropriate for aquarium plants?

Unfortunately, that would be a question for SeaClear. You would want some sort of glass canopy unless they sell acrylic ones. We would not have anything that would fit their tanks.

The Reef Capable is recommended for all types of soft corals, but if you have hard corals, you need to check their PAR/Lux requirements against our chart to see if the light is strong enough.

We would recommend two lights on your tank.

No, we do not sell replacement bulbs, as they are wired in a special way. If you are within the one year warranty, give us a call. 1-800-322-1266.

Make sure you are using a glass canopy underneath and that it is plugged into a power strip with surge protection. You would need to ship the light back to us, for replacement. Include your name, address, and phone number in your package.

For freshwater plant growth we recommend the Accent LED Lighting System in red 17" (item # NV33108.) This LED gives off a 660nm measure of light which is part of the RGB spectrum. This "color" of light is what plants utlize during photosynthesis.

Question

Will this be enough light?

I have a 36 gallon bow front aquarium. I want to buy one of your Aquatic Plant LED lights, for a 24-36in aquarium. Will one light be enough for my plants, since it is a bow front, which is a deeper tank? Thanks. Also, what is an excellent CO2 system for my tank? I don't want to build my own.

While Euro tanks do tend to be deeper, the PAR/LUX at 24" of depth is still rated a 83/4810. Higher up, at a depth of 12", the PAR/LUX measures at 172/10530. The only downfall with bowfront tanks (as you know) is that shadowing can be a problem. One of the reasons that our LED lights are such great growth lights is because they contain lenses that concentrate downward. This ensures light energy is not wasted as the light penetration only angles outward up to 45 degress. Because of this, you may want to think about adding in our smaller, submersible red Accent LED Light at the bow of your tank to ensure there are no "dead" spots.

We don't currently offer any CO2 systems, but try giving Drs. Foster and Smith a call at 1-800-381-7979 as they do have many CO2 systems available for sale.
