Questions & Answers

19 Customer Questions

will this light work for my glo fish? will it make my fish look like they are glowing?
Answer by ChewyJan 11, 2020
In most cases, the best light for GloFish is a LED light that has a mix of white and blue LED's. This light fixture features white, red and blue LED lights, bringing out vibrant colors in fish, plants and decor.

How many lumens/kelvin/watts is the 30-36 light?
Answer by ChewyApr 21, 2020
The OptiBright fixtures have LED’s of different color (white, blue, and red), so the correlated color temperature will vary depending on where the sensor is place and which color chip is most directly overhead. White LED’s are 8000 kelvin. Blue and Red are not assigned a correlated color temperature because they are not white lights.

Does this light get warm? Will it increase the temperature of my water? I have axolotls so temp has to stay on the cooler side. Thanks!

Nice and fancy looking! Functionality is ok, someone mis-measured 18".

The light says 18" minimum, It's over 18" long though - more like 19.5". I wanted it to set inside my 18.25" long window on my aquarium, instead it straddled the window and slid around when my cats jumped around it. Not to mention is was fairly dim for 24 LEDs, but I guess that's why it's on sale.

Good light fixture

Basic light fixture that can be operated manually or connected to a timer. I purchased this model to replace an old Coral Life unit that had developed an electrical short. This Aqueon model offers only two light options-white or blue. It is not programmable; however you do not need to have an IT certificate or a cell phone to operate it. If you just want a basic reliable aquarium light without fancy options, this unit maybe an option for you.

Nice Light

Really like this light, especially the simplicity of it. It puts out a bright crisp light on my 55 gallon tank. Looks good on the aquarium too. I especially like the soft touch, on off controls built into the housing. I liked this so much I got another one for my 29 gallon tank.

stoped working after 2 months

The touch censor for the daytime light stopped working and won’t turn on at all after two short months. Extremely annoying, and will have to buy another light now

Fit 20 long perfect

Perfect light, works great, quality appears very good, owned for about a month so far, fit my 20 gallon long planted aquarium. Works great on top of clear cover and looks better than the standard aquarium hoods with built in lights.

good lighting

I purchased this light about a year ago for my 60g aquarium and it works wonderfully. The only issue I have had with this light is when I first got it I would have to unplug it to turn it on/off because the sensor wasn’t working. But somehow it stopped giving me issues and turns on and off correctly. I liked this light enough to buy another one for my 90g aquarium too.
