Current LED Plus 48-60"
Awesome product. After a lot of research I decided on the Current USA LED Plus. You spend so much getting a tank ready ....I'm so glad I topped it off with this LED light. Its exactly what I needed for my 55 gal. Cichlid tank. The lighting possibilities are limitless. Once I plug it into a timer, it will be perfect.

New loyal customer
This is an awesome light! I'd also like to compliment your packing staff. They did a great job. I was at work when it was delivered and a big storm blew in. When I got home I found my package out in my yard about 300 feet from my porch. Not only did it get blown around but we got about four inches of rain that night. My light came out of the box with no damage.

Very adequate for growing
All the hobbyists that say this isn't enough light for growing plants are probably doing something else wrong. These lights are more than adequate for growing plants. They are rated at 6500 K. I have 3 of them on a 220 gallon lushly planted tank and all plants are thriving and growing fast.

Love the light. Actually everyone who's seen it loves it. Pretty much completely adjustable from super bright colors to really low settings. And all available from the remote. Glad I got the remote model as well. It's a nice convenience. The light does not get hot at all and comes with good instructions and button layout on the remote. A+ :)

This light is outstanding --even more so if you consider the price. I did add a ramp timer so the tank comes on with a "sunrise" and shuts off with a "sunset".The custom colors and effects give you an incredible amount of control over the spectrum and the mood.I may have to look at replacing my existing T-5 lights on another tank.

Iove it. I wish, that it has a built in timer. Would be nicer, if I can bring up a little more red color. Good price by the way.

Easy to set up and use. It seems to be having a very good effect on my plants and the fish behavior seems to have changed, they seem to be much calmer.

I had an Ecoxotic light with these color effects but it cost three times the price an had all kinds of wires and plugs. This light is just plug and play; excellent value!

The light is amazing. I've never seen colors in a fish tank as this light produces.

My purchase of the USA Satellite Freshwater LED 60" was a good choice over "florescent". I really like the rolling clouds effect and moonlight and lightning effect's. This is a good product and I do not regret buying it. Having said that....It was still to small for my 6ft tank so I just rigged it to fit rather than use the bracket's that extend even to the limit it was still to small. The remote is spotty so changing settings from my couch is a little frustrating. :( Also of all the choices to choose from I seem to only use the weather settings choices and have not mastered the "customize your own colors" buttons, OR the memory or add or subtract colors buttons. I'm giving the product 4 stars to leave room for improvement ie, better remote control (because that's a nice feature), longer to fit a 72" tank end to end (no shadow spot's) and the custom coloring seem to be a "token" feature that I really have not found to be useful or exciting to use so now the buttons are just a waste of space. SO 4 STARS IT GET'S FROM THIS CUSTOMER!

My fish seem to really enjoy this light. Have this set up with "Current USA Single Ramp Timer" and it works great. The LED lights are a little jumpy for the first 1-2 minutes as it ramps up for sunrise mode, but the fish don't seem to care. With the Timer set to sunrise/sunset you have to stay away from the effects otherwise the lights flicker as they come on. Not a problem with instant on timer but then don't waste your money on the ramp timer. Seems like a well built product, low profile, I would buy it again.

the brackets are a little week when full extended to cover a 4 foot tank but the lighting features are cool, spent several hours playing with the settings, scared my eels with the lightning effect

This is a very nice product and lives up to its word. I only purchased one to try on one half of my planted 120. I will be buying another to go on the other side. However, I will not be using it for my exclusive light source. I am sort to say I just don't believe it has enough umphf to get to the lower reaches of the tank. But that being said, it is a great accent for viewing my plants and pets and I am still having a lot of fun creating 'moods'. Funny thing, I actually believe different lighting brings about behaviors I have not seen in my fish previously. I would love to see an app that would allow me to control the light from my phone. One other thing that would truly make this a GREAT product would be a built in timer and to be able to turn the light on with a touch of a specific button. As it is now, if I turn it off at the brightest setting that's where it turns back on. I would prefer it if I could just turn on, say for instance, the dawn feature without having to startle the heck outta the fish. Thanks for a fun product!

Love it- it looks beautiful and love all of the different settings. Well worth the money and better priced than pet stores locally in my area!

current led plus
I received the Current led full spectrum fixture a couple of days ago & have it installed on a 65gal. freshwater tank with live plants .I have the remote set on the full spectrum. I will experiment with the various settings to see what will be best for the fish& plants.So far it seems to be a great light fixture
By HARVEY SUGERMAN on PetStore.com - Sep 22, 2013
I have this over a planted tank. The full spectrum setting looks good. I like the remote more than what I thought but it would be better to have a built in timer. The other colors are token colors. It has built in effects but there is no way to program them over time they are push button effects.

I just recently purchased the USA Satellite LED light. I have already began to notice my plants are loving it. The fish even seem more relaxed. I love how you can adjust the lighting from daylight to night plus have storm effects, cloudy day, full moon, no moon. I set it every day to what the day is like outside.

Incredible fixture on a budget
Right out of the box you could feel that this wasn't some cheap & flimsy aquarium fixture. This is very high quality. I am growing various plants such as crypts, java moss, aponogeton bulbs, java ferns, and marimo balls with this and they have all been getting incredible growth from this. The ability to change the color spectrum of my tank is great because I can put any color I want to bring out the colors of different fish. The dynamic effects are very fun to play with too even though the only one I use is the sunset effect in the morning and at night. Overall 5/5 best bang for your buck hands down.

freshwater LED lights
I am very happy with these LED lights for my 75 gallon freshwater tank. You can change any color spectrum with the remote. All the colors pop and the lights give buttersmooth balance in my tank. Very much worth the money, have no regrets. Thank you marine depot for an excellent product!

Great Light for the $$
Have to say after 40 years of fresh water fish keeping I have had every light ever made. This Current USA Satellite Freshwater LED Plus fills a long needed gap in the fresh water world. I am using it on a 75 gal Discus tank with several low light plants. The fish are more active during the day with rolling cloud cover as opposed to a steady light source. Works well with an external timer, low profile, no fans, no noise, easy use remote. Your not going to grow a jungle with this light "my opinion". However if your looking for a good all around affordable LED light you can't go wrong with this one. My children are grown now but if this was available 20 years ago they would have had hours of fun with the remote.
