does this light help with aquatic plants
Answer by ChewyJul 26, 2021
This light provides your tank with the benefit of UVA which helps promote natural behavior.

How does this light attach to my fresh water fish aquarium? My tank is 72" long. Can I use 2 lights end to end?
Answer by ChewyJun 29, 2021
Check to make sure that the light fixture is unplugged before installing on the aquarium. To install using the adjustable sliding rails, adjust the width of the rails to match the width of the aquarium, and securely place the fixture on the frame of the aquarium. Each rail should be extended the same amount, and should not be pulled completely from the aluminum housing. The 13.5 Watt light adjusts to fit aquariums measuring 18-30 inches wide, the 18 Watt light adjusts to fit aquariums measuring 24-36 inches wide, the 27 Watt light adjusts to fit aquariums measuring 36-48 inches wide, and the 36 Watt light adjusts to fit aquariums measuring 48-60 inches wide. They cannot be combined to fit a longer width.

Does this light help land plants
Answer by ChewyNov 17, 2021
This light will provide your tank or terrarium with UVA which is necessary for plants to grow.

No sleep schedule

The customization of the light is wonderful being able to change the intensity is a great option and the ramp up for daylight and moon phase is great but why is there no sleep schedule it seems like if your going to go to the trouble of doing a ramp up and down for daylight a sleep schedule wouldn't have been that much more to include so I still half to turn it on and off that was really disappointing the only reason I bought this light was for the 24 hr timer and without the sleep schedule it is useless other than that for the price it is an excellent light but still a manual one

complicated remote

Light was difficult to setup as your only indication of a success is a specific type of flashing light. I was getting two flashes & when done a red light which is not explained in the instructions which I found out on day two with red light still on that programming was in a fault. Upon second time programming I finally saw the single flash of light with white light on but not able to get daytime or nightime spectrum adjusted for individual light colors without again getting caught up in red light fault program situation. Going to Auto is another feature that seems to bring on the red light fault condition. I have the light running & appears to work sort of but the programming of this unit is a pain.

Awesome product

Got this model 2, 48 inch for Xmas for my hubby . It is really cool I love the sound effects would be great as a sound machine in a bedroom tank. It makes the fish look so pretty with the different light settings. And easy set up. Nice clean design.

Welcome to the Jungle!

I got this for my Pac Man Frog's Bioactive Vivarium. I LOVE this light and the sounds, it helps me sleep too! Feels like I'm in the middle of a rainforest!
