Be certain to use a large air pump. With that being said, this is working great to bust up some co2 & add a little lighting under some casework for awhile in the evenings.
I love this! I have a 3.5 gallon tank and should’ve done a bit more research so it’s big for my tank but that’s my fault. I will still use it for the light and occasionally for some bubbles :D
I've only had these for a short time, but I love them! I put 2, end to end in a 75 gallon and they work great. Make sure they are level, so your bubbles are evenly distributed. At night it shines on the ceiling with a soft blue glimmering glow that makes a perfect night light.
So this wand looks cool and lights up the castle in my aquarium but it has a small section where the majority of the bubbles come out all at once. Not a lot of tiny bubbles evenly spaced along the length like I expected. Not sure if there is any way to force it to evenly spread the bubbles out. I have the valve installed and if it is turned down at all, air escapes only from the space close to the end. If it is all the way open it does make it down the full length but so much comes out from the section of tube closer to the airline. Not sure if I will keep it or look for other options.
The Aqueon Flexible LED Bubble Wand is exactly what I wanted! It's beautiful! I have a 5 gallon Betta tank with a Corydoras catfish and 2 snails and wanted a little more movement...this is perfect. Because it's a small tank I added a valve to control the airflow and buried the wand under the gravel to suppress the brightness of the LED. I couldn't be happier with the results! It would have been easier to install in a new set up, but who knew? Definitely recommend! Love it!
The lights themselves were very pretty, but as a bubble wand...very few bubbles come out. Disappointed and do not recommend.
Nice and flexible, so you can shape it how you want. However, the more you mess with it, the more likely the plastic clips will pop off of the lights or bubbler part. Not broken, just annoying to get it bent just right and then have to pick it up again to reattach them (my ONLY complaint). . . . Also, I read a review, before I bought this product, that spoke about how it won't stay anchored to the bottom. I found that the suction cups work REALLY well on the bare tank, or digging a trench in your gravel, placing the bubble wand in the trench and then burying most of it with just the lights and bubble tube showing will keep it anchored as well. . . . Another thing, the 2 functions of this product can be used INDEPENDENTLY. The LED just needs to be plugged in (WALL PLUG INCLUDED) and the bubbler NEEDS an AIR PUMP and TUBE that also gets plugged in. So if you don't want the lights on the whole day, you can plug just the lights into a timer while the bubbles can be always on by plugging that part into a normal wall socket. BONUS: The blue LED lights reacted with my glow decor for a cool nighttime effect!
For this application. in the beta falls tank, I would not recremend.
Always had good results from this brand before. The lights worked but didn’t blow bubbles. Am returning item for an exchange. Confident new item will work for me.
I love this bubble wand! The blue lights are beautiful & the bubbles work great for oxygenating the aquarium water!
