MARINELAND® Hidden LED Lighting System
Very unique product
I bought this light because of the low profile, natural lighting effects, ease of use, and my positive experiences with other Marineland products (filters, tanks, underwater lighting & bubble wands, heaters, etc.) I have bought good products from a few other companies, but I tend to gravitate toward Marineland products, as I know, from past experience, that I am getting top of the line products that last, perform well, have great features, and look great. I know that once I bring home a Marineland product, I'm not going to be disappointed. I know that the product is going to enhance the tank without taking the focus off the fish, not to mention ease of use. It's not bulky or heavy, and allows unobstructed view from the top of the tank for those who have glass tops. Plus, it makes it a lot easier to perform water changes and other maintenance to the tank, because you don't have to move a bulky light hood every time you need to gain access. I like that there are different options for mounting it- a deep groove to slide the inside lip (of the upper black tank rim) into and suction cups that allow it to be mounted to the tank glass. The light angle can be changed by turning the built-in knob at one end of the bar. The only thing that I would like to see in the future is an option to replace the light tube part. Other than that, this light is THE answer to eliminating extra bulk and creating a streamlined, elegant aquarium

Had problems; Marineland replaced the unit immediately.
I wrote a review which wasn't flattering and was contacted by Marineland to review the problems I experienced. Because the original unit wouldn't adjust the lighting down I was sent a replacement. The new unit adjusted as desired and is now a supplement to the main lighting, which is the 48-60 Reef Capable with timer. The extra lighting is a real plus in my 75 gallon reef system although it is designed for smaller aquariums. The concern shown by Marineland for satisfying their customers was in my opinion, superb.

Trouble with instructions.
I bought this product to supplement the lighting in my reef system. The clips didn't fit so suction cups were used and I have to 'refit' regularly when the lights detach and float away. Neither could I redirect the lights downward so they light forward causing rapid algae growth on the front viewing of the aquarium. If I cannot correct these issues I will remove the system from my tank.

Bought this product for my 10 gallon tank, and it works great. the installation was a breeze and like how you can angle the leds and how easy you can switch from the blues and whites. only down side is the suction cup for the switch doesnt stick well, maybe that is on my part. But overall it is a good product
