Hidden and Accent LED Lighting Systems 17" Hidden LED
Great cheap lighting option
I was looking for a cheap little lighting strip to use over my QT tank. I have an eclipse hood that builds up condensation/humidity so it needed to be waterproof. All the other options are a lot more expensive. This light is strong enough to light up the whole tank. I am picky about color blending and usually dont like LEDs but I have no complaints about this fixture. It also mounted in seconds. I am extremely pleased and I'm thinking about purchasing a few more to provide dawn/dusk lighting over the reef tank. I'm not expecting it to grow corals or anything, but for the price it is a great way to light up a tank!

Great LED Fixture
I purchased this fixture for my 13g aquarium in the office. The hood that came with the aquarium only had a few dim LED's attached to it, and I needed something stronger to use live plants. This light works perfectly and makes the tank look great!

My wife purchased this for me 10 months ago. Since day one it has been suction cupped under water. I have had no problems at all with condensation or any bulbs going out. I mainly use this light for an accent with my t5 bulbs. It just gives a little shimmer to the water. Don't expect to grow coral or anything.
Over all I really like this light. I plan on buying a second one for my new tank I am cycling now. If you are running fresh water or a fish only salt water you may be able to use this as your primary light. Otherwise I would just use it as an accent light.

Great light, great price
I got the 21" hidden LED light to add enough light to support my aquatic plants.
I have the Biowheel 20gal kit, and the stock lighting is not meant for planted aquariums. I was really impressed with how this inexpensive light perked up the plants in my 20gal high. It was brighter than I expected it to be, and it was much cheaper than other light systems. I found that this site was also much cheaper than anywhere else.
The light snaps nicely to the frame of my tank, and you can't even tell it's there. With the 21" light, I have about an inch or so on either side of the light to the edge of the tank. I like that you can adjust the angle of the light, directing it exactly where you need it. It's great that it has optional suction cups for different mounting options. There are enough blue lights in it that you can actually see everything in the tank when you have it on moonlight setting. Overall a nice product, I'm glad I bought this and didn't have to spend a lot of money.
