Question

lighting on fresh water aquarium

Can I use a fluorescent strip on a 55 gal tank with gold fish that does not have a canopy?? On the product info it states that the strip can be used with a glass canopy but it does not say if the strip HAS to be used with a canopy. I have new fluorescent replacement bulbs but the strip has stopped working. I am looking to replace the strip and want to be sure it can be used without a canopy.

All of our non-submersible lighting systems (whether it be our flourescent lighting or LED lighting) MUST be protected by a glass/acrylic canopy as these components are not waterproof and can be damaged by moisture. Damages resulting from moisture (no canopy in place) will void any warranty on these items.

Question

Attatching the LED light fixture.

I just recently purchased the 20 gallon Bio-Wheel LED aquarium kit and the LED attachment is not locking into place. Is this a manufacture defect? If so, how do I go about getting it fixed please?

MissyBlue,
The light in the LED aquarium kit can be tricky to lock into place the first go round. Try sliding the light into place at an angle so that the 2 tabs in the back of the hood connect into the channel on the light itself. Once these tabs are lined up, press the front of the light into place. This should "lock" the light down into the hood.

If you are still having problems after trying this, please contact our customer service department Mon-Fri 7:30 AM - 5:00 PM at 1-800-322-1266.

Are you plugging it into an outlight or a power strip with surge protection? If the former, try a power strip to control the voltage going through your house as it can vary. If you are already plugging it into a power strip, you may need a new transformer. Call our support staff at 1-800-322-1266 for assistance.

Question

Modify lighting hood?

I need a new aquarium hood for my 55 gal. aquarium. My current hood has four lights two reg. bulbs & two high intensity (sunlight) bulbs. Would it be possible to substitute one bulb with a black light bulb that would show off my glow Fish or is it best to just buy a separate light for that? I need advice on how to show off the glow fish additions to my tank! Thank you very much for your advice and assistance in advance!!

If you do not have live plants, I would just replace the two sunlight bulbs with black bulbs, if the fixture allows for this. Otherwise, since you just want to show off the glow fish, buy the Accent LED in Blue. For your size tank, we would recommend two of them.

Question

Will the Double Bright LED provide adequate lighting for plant growth in a fresh-water tank?

I have a 46 gallon bow front tank with a 36" glass canopy. I was using an Aqueon T8 24" 8000k light, which provided nice color for my fish and was working well for my plants. I need to replace my lighting system. Will the Double Bright LED provide adequate light for plant growth in a freshwater tank ? Since this is lower K rating than the 8000k, will the blue LEDs help to offset the difference and help make the fish colors 'pop' ?

Would the 24-36" be adequate or would I need the 36-48" ?

Do you have any other recommendations, such as a T5 style system, that I should consider ?

Thanks

It will definitely not be as bright as 8000 Kelvin, but plants require 6500, not 8000. The DB, however, is only 6000. The blue lights will not help with plant growth either. We would recommend the 36" Aquatic Plant Light.

So it sounds like you have the 55 gallon kit that comes with the light bars or the lighting strands. These are not going to provide enough light alone, for live plants. You could add two of the 21" Hidden LED lights which are great for plants at 6500 Kelvin.

Or you could purchase glass canopies and an Aquatic Plant LED, 48-60" in length, if you are planning on getting really serious about live plants.

As long as you center the corals under the light and not out towards the edges of the tank, it should be fine. We would have recommended the 36-48" light for your purposes.

Light choice for a 65 gallon saltwater fish only tank

For a 65 gallon saltwater tank ( Dimensions 36 W X 24 tall X 18 deep) do you recommend one double bright light LED in the size of 24-36 or 26-48? Will it be bright enough for the depth of the tank or would it be better to purchase two 24-36 double bright lights?

Hello,
We recommend starting with one 36-48 inch Double Bright LED lights so that it will span the width of your tank. The light should most definitely be sufficient for a tank with a depth of 18". If you feel that that first light is not bright enough (we think you will be pleasantly surprised at the power of this light) then you can certainly look into adding a second.

Kind Regards,

You would need more than two of the Hidden LED lights. You would need like 4 of those or we would recommend 2 of the 48-60" Double Bright LEDs, or if you want live plants, the Aquatic Plant Light.

Question

The Proper LED Light...

Salesmanship aside, which is the best LED light fixture for a 45g tank? My tank's dimensions are identical to one in a question asked labeled: 'Will the Hidden LED lighting system work on my tank?', however would 2x21" hidden LED's be enough to grow medium range plants? I'm looking at either that or the Aquatic Plant Lighting System. Thank you.

Yes, 2 of the Hidden LED should be enough as that light is 6500 Kelvin. One in front and one in back, would work well. However, the Aquatic Plant LED is definitely the better system as it also offers other spectrums that plants need, such as red and green ones. You would pay a bit more for the 36" Aquatic plant light though.

One should suffice for that tank even though it is 18" deep. We usually recommend two for a tank that deep, but yours is also shallow, so I'd start with one. It should be enough, and two would cause too much algae, in my opinion.

Question

Can my Marineland light have any exposure over the tank water?

I have two holes in the glass canopy of my Innovative Marine 24 gallon nuvo. They are each about the size of a 50 cent coin - used to pick up the canopy. My Marineland reef capable light covers one of the holes and water condenses onto the light right at that spot. Do I need to buy a new glass canopy?

You definitely don't want condensation damaging the light. It would most likely affect only that particular area, but still...we would recommend covering the hole somehow.

Question

remote timer/driver reef capable led design

Why do you guys not put a remote timer and driver on your lighting......it would be very simple to do,that would solve the accidental drop in that most people have encountered.....I too have recently dropped the timer end of the light into the water....I took it apart rinsed it with freshwater and dried it. it worked fine for a week,then the white Iight started flickering,apparently printed circuits does not like salt water,I replace the corroded circuit with a jumper wire and wallah it works again.....it would be very easy to make a remote timer/driver with a three wire supply cord then you could drop it in the water with no problem, even run underwater led's.....from a design standpoint it would be mutch cheaper to manufacture and way less warranty resolutions.

HIdden LED Light switch doesn't work

HI. I've been very happy with my 17" Hidden submersible light fixture in my 10g freshwater tank. I usually leave all the blue LEDs on, in conjunction with another light setup. I like the low level of blue light at night. Recently, all of the lights (Blue & White) come on, and no matter which rocker position the switch is in, all the lights stay on. Can you help me figure out how to get my blues only LEDs to show? Thanks.

You will need to speak with SeaClear as these types of questions will depend on the thickness of the acrylic, etc. As for the filter size, the Penguin 200 would be the proper one to choose.
