Shop Ml Led Aquarium Hood
Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5by Lights don't work This is the second hood I've bought. The lights just don't work. It's the same problem I had with the first/original hood. So it must be a problem with all of them. Everything about the thing is fine, except the lights don't function. With my last hood I had to click the switch, then bang on the unit with my fist several times to get one light bar to light up. This went on for a few months (and the fish certainly didn't like it), then it died. So after having it for a year I bought a new one. I figured I just had bad luck. The new one worked fine for only three or four weeks before the same problemt started again. If I bang the lights around a bit they'll flicker, but they won't light up. I've read other remarks online of how they use a bad switch in these things. I'd avoid this system. 02/27/2012
Rated 4 out of 5by Best hood light combo This LED light system is efficient and functional. The white light is crisp and brings out depth, shadows, and colors in the fish. The Blue "Moonlight" setting creates a calmdown time for my fish before I give them darkness. The LED light fits into the tank hood as one integral unit. The light stays put when you lift up the hood for feeding. The hood has a protective clear panel protecting the LED light from moisture in the tank. I just love it. I searched until I found the size tank I wanted with the LED light system. I am not dissapointed. 02/26/2012
Rated 4 out of 5by Nice clean light/hood combo! I really like this hood/light combination. You have easy, full access to the top of the tank without having to remove the hood or light (assuming you're against a wall to lean it against--turn off the light when you do this!). It looks very sharp and clean with its bulged-up center. This keeps it away from the surface of the water and therefore likely won't grow algae like the flat, glass tops do. Installation was a piece of cake. I use an undergravel filter/powerhead combo (I know, so old school am I!) on my 29 gallon tank and I had to move the powerhead/tube over a spot since the hinges/hood slightly interfered (I like to hang my powerhead off the tank and not use the suction cups) but not a big deal for me. I can't give it 5 stars for two reasons: (1) I don't use an above-the-tank filter so now I have a large opening in the hood that I need to close somehow. This area should come with a filler piece that can be cut up to accommodate one's setup. (2) The LED light is about 1/3 the width of my 29 gallon tank. I'd like to see something a bit longer--at least 1/2 the width would be nicer and eyeballing it looks to me like it would fit fine without too much compromise to the current excellent design. 07/27/2011
Rated 3 out of 5by Very good first led hood of it kind. More development needed. I was very excited to purchase this Hood set up. From I can tell and from all my looking around at varios pet stores locally and on the internet this is really the first of its kind that I have seen. So two tumbs up for that. I only rated this product 3 stars because of 3 major issues I have with this hood. Fix my Issues and I say it is a 5 star product. 1. You can't use live plants with this system. I wish they had Double Bright versions or Reef vesions so this issue is corrected. I am buying a supplemental lighting system to correct this becasue I like this product. 2. For 55 Gallon longs there is a lighting gap in the center because you need two hoods and the Led strip does not cover most of the surface area of the water like conventional fluorescent hoods. I am surprise to see that Marineland missed that. 3. While the flip top hood is great for acess for the entire surface area of the water and easy to acess your tank. Try cleaning or setting up the tank with very little lighting to see what you are doing. Again I am surprised they missed that. Overall the product is good. Daylight shimming is not as advertised but the moonlight shimming and brightness is spot on. I hope they make other versions of this product and improve on this design. I see a future in Led lighting. I also hope they make the lighting color a tad warmer. 05/14/2011
