Amazing light and awesome customer service By Alejandro on 7/23/2018Alejandro would recommend this product to a friendNew to reef keeping and I bought this light for my 10 gallon nano reef aquarium (12x12x15 inches) Has a really nice purple hue to it and it makes the tank look awesome with the corals and clown. The first light I bought came in defective and RapidLed Customer service replaced it for me fast and hassle free. So far I’m very impressed and the tank has been happy and thriving for about a month now. I would definitely recommend
Very Nice light By Jeremiah on 11/7/2017Jeremiah would recommend this product to a friendI'm using this on a mixed 5L pico tank at about 50%. Corals love it. Got a Lowes lamp dimmer for this, and have flicker anywhere under 50%, not the light's fault. So I do wish BRS or Rapid would sell a gooseneck with a dimmer.. but alas... The light itself though does not get hot puts out a nice almost light lavender over all color. I'd get another one in a heartbeat.
Nice lights but don't last By TLR on 5/25/2017TLR wouldn't recommend this product to a friendBought two of these 8 months ago. Corals loved the lights and I was very happy with them until one died today. Not just one LED but the whole lamp simply clicked off. These are in an open air environment in an open fixture. There should be no over heating issues. A lot of money to have go so soon.
very nice By saltchip on 5/7/2016saltchip would recommend this product to a friendI have very happy with this light. Nice color etc. I have it on a 20 high. There are not any sps in that tank. I plan to try one though. The dimmer I purchased is a Lutron credenza for cfl and led lights. from A big box store. It is pretty long like an extension cord and works well. No flicker. The light has an 80 degree angle. I will buy another.
Great light! By JeffL on 4/28/2016JeffL would recommend this product to a friendThis was the perfect light for my 10g tank, super easy to install and use. Had an old light fixture from Target that I repurposed and just took the lamp shade off of. Wife thinks it looks great as well!

Hi I purchased this light for a 5 gallon and it's like 8-10 inches deep and I have the light about ten inches above the top of the water. How high should it be. Will it grow sps coral? And the triac dimmer I can't figure out what it is and can't find a reputable website to buy from. Do I need a triac dimmer?
Your owners manual for this rapid led is showing a kessil light. Is there one that goes with it
