It's been ten years since I set up a planted tank. I was imoreseed with how easy this light was to set up. It doesn't get as hot as other types of lighting. Changing the program of the different light spectrums to meet my needs was easy. Most importantly the plants have been doing great!

Love the light with the effects and plant growth stimulation. The timer is great as well and simple to set-up. If you are looking for an effective, simple, and low profile light where most of the light goes into the tank and not lighting up the whole room, this is the light for you.
