    Really like your videos and setups. I have started my own macroalgae tank. Can you please do another tour update of your fish room?

    The Nicrew breaking after a powercut is strange. I actually had the same issue a few weeks ago with a Nicrew Slim LED. Electrics were tripped by something else in the house. When I came to reset the light timer I found the light unit was dead. Luckily it was still in warranty so the company sent a replacement. I tested the old transformer plug on the new one and it worked so it was the main light that died. Maybe it’s a fault on the Nicrew lights that even surge protecting sockets can’t protect.

    You should do one of this with reef leds. I have a feeling people underrate leds.

    A good video.. I have a small Nicrew set that has been faultless for around 5 years now, but I did have a Hygger set that just stopped working after not very long at all. I think it’s a bit hit and miss sometimes, but they certainly do perform well when they work and are a good price.

    It’s HIGrrr

  6. Tiffany Savoie on May 24, 2023 at 9:36 am

    What’s the best light that will bring cichlids color oht? That won’t break the bank tho

  7. Mitch on May 24, 2023 at 9:48 am

    So you telling me I coulda been using all these spare nicrews I have laying around from my freshwater tanks to grow soft coral and macros?

    I just always assumed they weren’t strong enough lol

  8. Tom Page on May 24, 2023 at 9:53 am

    Over the long term these almost always become dull because they use such poor quality LED. As you can see the electronics are poor too

    I am glad bought the hygger you recommended, since accidently dropped mine into tank and still survived well. Though kinda wished I noticed that the other hygger light had strong lights, would fit my tank much better for better growth. 48 watts ws my current 26 watts is a good amount

    Wonder the par on these
