Question

Which reef capable fits a 20 gal.

I have a 20 gal. 24" across 16"in tall and 9" deep/wide ( not include the sump) will the 24 fit on top with the legs not extended. Will that support zooas as well as an anemone.

While different Zoanthids need different PAR levels, our Reef Capable LED Lighting System is more than sufficient for supporting anemones and zoas. You are also correct that for a 24" tank length the 24-36" (item #33001-02) light will be the most ideal fit. With the legs not extended, the light should perfectly bracket over the top frame of the tank. Please do make sure that you have a protective glass or acrylic full canopy in place to maintain warranty requirements and to keep moisture out.

Question

Lighting - 30 gallon freshwater

I have a reef capable LED 24-36" lighting system for my 30 gallon freshwater tank. After having algae blooms for months without being able to remove it, I have removed all live plants and restarted my aquarium from scratch with fake plants. What do you recommend for the duration of the lighting for daytime and night ?

Plants do not cause algae blooms, they actually help to eradicate them. The light you are using is 10,000 Kelvin for growing coral. It is much too bright for most fresh water fish, and combines with a high nutrient load in the tank, would be the cause of the algal blooms. Even if you only run it for 4-6 hours a day, you will probably get quite a bit of algae just because it is too bright for your application.

Question

Can I use a ramp timer on your reef capable led?

The one Im looking at is the current dual. As I have 2 24 to 36 fixtures. I want a gentle sunrise and sunset. I think the sudden turn on has streesed a couple of the fish. Thanks

We do not make a 3.5 gallon tank. We have 3 gallon and 5 gallon aquariums. This sounds like the Crescent, but I would need more information to be sure. Please email a picture or your receipt to us directly. With that information, we can then better advise you.

You sure can. Just call or email us directly with your information. You would need the version that has two cords that snap into each other. There is no power supply available for the old ones that plugged directly into the light with one cord.

There is a white plastic piece that looks like a screw. This is called a lens fastener. It is not a screw though, just carefully turn it 180 degrees, pull it out, and you can remove the clear cover so you can get to the light bulb.

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.

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!
