Lights have come a long way and the new smartphone controlled lights by fluval are pretty great. They allow you to program the lights in a number of ways giving the user a very custom schedule and spectrum. This nano light is no different in that regard. Its fits nicely on small nano tanks and can produce more than enough lights for any type of plant. The only limitations i see are when you try to streach the size of the tank. This light in my opinion works best in a nano cube size tank. Ideal dimensions would be a 14' inch cube tank or smaller as the tank get wider the throw of the light isnt very wide so it becomes more of a concentrated "beam" again the light is great but it needs to be paired with the correct size tank wich again IMO wouldnt be much wider than a 14' inch. I suppose you could always attach more than one on a wider tank however it would then make more sense to look at the regular style lights in that case
Unfortunately no way to attach to a small tank with a rim
I bought the nano light. Now own the 24” and 15” for two other tanks! The app is super easy and bug free. They level of control is incredible. Also the shroud is built so that from all side, and even hen viewing from below its nearly impossible from any angle to see the LEDs. This makes it great to view the tank without bright lights shining in your face.
I’ve actually lost count of how many I have. The phone app is really nice too as you can control the output easily.
I run these in conjunction with other lights to hit those sometimes pesky shadow areas. Easy to move from tank to tank when need.
I got this light for my betta, Marley who lives in a planted frameless tank. The light that came with the tank was ok but it did not cover enough of the tank. I love the app for this light and my plants are much happier too. My red root floaters are flowering and spreading SUPER fast and the moss has finally gotten more lush. It’s actually starting to cover the coconut hut I got from you guys too.
I got this light for the advanced timer and spectrum control that fluvial offers with the new firmware update. Since my tank is so small I set the intensity down to 60% and it's timer is set to 8 hours of light with a siesta during the afternoon. Great lamp, a bit too pricey but well worth it.
Great illumination and plant growth. Fits perfectly on my Marineland 5.5 gallon portrait tank. I love all of the customization options. The app is a little confusing, and I do wish there was even just a power button on the light itself, but that's because I'm not the most techy person. I'd rather it had a button and a remote instead of operating it from my phone. That said, best aquarium light I've ever had, and I'll be getting the big one for my 29 gallon tank project here in a few months when I'm ready to set that up. TLDR: Loved it and will buy another!
It’s inevitable, once you purchased one, and get used to the convenience of not having to mess with timers, and you have the light settings dialed in, you just can’t go to any other type of lights for your tanks! I have 3 nano tanks, a planted tank and a main display, and all of them or powered by Fluval Planted 3.0 LED lights, courtesy of Aquarium Co-op!
Thanks to Cory and warehouse crew!!!
The light is great. Thought I had high light until I installed this unit and wow it was a whole lot brighter for sure. The app works great. Only thing I don’t like is at the end of your light cycle you can’t set a specific timeline for the blues to go off. This wouldn’t be a problem for me if the blues weren’t so bright even at the lowest setting of 1% but they are still too bright to leave on overnight at 1%. This forces me to get on the app every night before I go to bed to shut the blues off. Still not a deal breaker seeing as I’ve bought 3 of these lights and all are working great.
