Question

i have a 32980 light, my power went off for a couple of hours yesterday, and now i can't get the T5 and LED lights to come on. What's wrong?

I've reset the schedule and no luck. The HQI light will come on with manual override but not the other two. Also, on the timer, I can change the hours, but the minutes will not change. Please help!

If the unit was not plugged into a powerstrip with surge protection it may have received a jolt that short circuited it. Call 1-800-576-6277 for assistance.

You would need a new hood, as light switches are not available separately, since they have to be wired in.

Question

Programing the timer on the light system

I have a marineland LED light on my saltwater aquarium and the light was unplugged and now the timer is not working. This was placed onto the tank by someone else and don't have a manual or anything. How do I reprogram the light so that the fish have heat over the weekends when no one is here to take care of the tank.

LED lights do not provide heat. Heat escapes out the top of them, not the bottom, so they will not keep the fish warm. As for a manual, you can download that straight from our website. Go to the product page for your light and click on technical details. You will see a link for the manual. Instructions for setting the timer will be there.

5500 Kelvin. You would need to supplement it if you wish to keep plants.

Question

Is it normal for the Aquatic Plant fixture to run so hot?

It raises the temp of my water significantly and is almost too hot to touch. I've had it less than six months and I'm starting to wonder if it's somehow broken? It works fine otherwise, just gets so hot.

Heat escapes out the top of the light only, not below. Therefore, it would not be able to heat your water at all. This is one of the big benefits of LED lights.

It releases this heat in a cyclical fashion. In other words, it will be cool to the touch for a few minutes, then it will get hot. And yes, it gets quite hot to the touch when it is releasing the heat. Again, this will not increase water temperature; that would be a different issue with your tank.

Question

How deep will the newer LED lights (that mount to the rim or inside with a suction cup) shine in a 48x24x30 (#97009) or deeper tank?

Would it be to bright for certain sea life nearer to the bottom of the light?
What lessons were learned to make this a good choice?
Does it function as the sun and moon for the benefit of the tank?
Thank you in advance.

Question

LED lighting for 75 gallon freshwater tank

I just went from a 40 gallon breeder with a 36-48" double bright LED and a 21" hidden LED to a 75 gallon tank. I have 2 17" hidden LEDs in there already and would like to get a 48-60" LED. I have anubias in my 75 gallon tank along with floating water sprite. My main concern are my anubias. Which LED system would be best for a 75 gallon with low light plants (the 2 17" LEDs are in there already). Thanks.

The Double Bright should be fine. I have anubias in my 38 gallon and it did really well under a single Double Bright. With the Hidden LEDs supplementing the DB, your anubias should be ecstatic and even bloom for you. I moved up to an Aquatic Plant Light to add some high light plants, and the anubias blooms more often, but it did not make that much difference to it.

First, make sure it is plugged into a power strip with surge protection and not directly into your outlet. Second, you need a glass canopy underneath it to protect it from water damage.

If all of these things are already in place, then you may have an issue with the adaptor itself. If you call into our support staff with the lot code (number stamped on underside of light at the same end as the switch) they will be happy to help you. 1-800-322-1266.

Question

Replacement part for lighting

We bought the standard 20-gallon aquarium kit. The power cord that plugs into the overhead light that slots into the top of the aquarium has developed corrosion at the jack and I would like to replace it. But I cannot find that on your list of replacement parts. Please let me know if this is available and for how much.

Question

replacement lighting assembly for 25gal tall 24"x12" eclipse hood

I have had my tank for many years and the lights just stopped working, one flickers and the other doesn't work. I believe its called the Eclipse 2 (24x12 inches) Can I replace the light fixture only? I have bought new bulbs which is how I found out it wasn't the bulbs. I would like to order the new light fixture instead of a whole new hood since the filter works fine.

Unfortunately, that is no longer available. You would either need to replace the filter and light, essentially the entire top, or you could replace the light by inserting a Hidden LED fixture under the frame of the tank.

No. It would leave a lot of shadowy areas as the light fixture itself is only 48" long. The legs extend out to grip the ends of the tank. We would recommend 2 of the 36" lights in LED as well.

Question

Broken hinges (not clips) of LED Aquarium (30"W x 12"D x 22"H)

The hinges of the hood broke. Since the hinges are attached to the hood I presume I need a whole new hood. Where can I get it from? What are the advantages of LED vs flourescent lighting?

Yes, that would require a hood. We sell hoods through independent fish stores and several websites like www.aquariumguys.com, www.thatfishplace.com, www.petmountain.com, etc.

LED is cooler, more energy efficient, and does not require light bulbs to be replaced.

There may be a wiring issue, or the voltage in your area may be a little low currently or acting erratically. Make sure the unit is plugged into a powerstrip with surge protection as well. This will prevent any stray voltage from affecting it.

Our Eclipse hood units are a discontinued style and we no longer have stock in the replacement Hood Lamp Base Assembly for your PFE3. If your filtration is working and you are open to other light sources, please look into our Hidden LED Light System in the 21" length. You can learn more about this light below:

Is your tank a Perfecto tank? Does it have an anchor on the bottom of it? Our 48 x 13 hood comes in two sections, and you have to have the center brace.
