National Geographic™ Deluxe Programmable LED Aquarium Light
have had for about 2 months, and this thing already doesnt work right. The white lights in it only will glow dull now. For a week i was able to disconnect the power and plug it back in and the lights would be bright again, but now nothing will help. It looks nice at night since the blue lights work well, but what good is that if the white lights are so dull its almost completely dark. I tried everything i would assume it might be but nothing is helping.

Good Light within limits
This is my first LED aquarium light for a freshwater aquarium without plants. Purchased the 24" deluxe fixture with timer. Build quality appears excellent for the money although the transformer seems to run a little hot. Fixture fits very nicely on my 24" long tank under a wooden canopy without the use of the metal legs supplied with the unit. Fixture has white and blue leds - white/blue illuminate for "daytime" timer setting and blue illuminate for night (lunar) timer setting which is "cool" looking. White leds for daytime setting are very bright and white in color which will take time to get used to. Timer setup involves a learning curve. My only real disappointment is that there should be at least two daytime timer settings available not just one. With my previous fluorescent light, I could use a timer to turn lights on in the early morning, shut them off during the day when ambient lighting was sufficient and then turn them on again before dusk. Now I can only use the built-in timer to turn the light on late afternoon (daytime setting) and switch to night (lunar) setting at 8pm and all off at 10pm. The aquarium has to stay dark during the early morning unless I want to leave the light on all day. (Unless someone has found a work around to this issue.) From what I can see, this issue is probably true for most led timer fixtures out there. Of course, you can manually turn the light on and off as desired, but that is not practical.

Excellent Product for the Price!!!
First I purchased one unit just to see if it was any good since it was on sale at PETSMART. Once I set it up on my 90 Gallon Discus Tank I was really impressed with the quality, features and functionality that i immediately used PETSMART online product store inventory check feature to find another location that had one and purchased a second unit. One 48 inch unit is enough for 90 gallon tank that is 31 inches deep. But if you really want a WOW effect buy two! Really worth it. Makes the colors of my Discus pop!
