Marineland LED Double Bright Lighting System Review

Marineland LED Lighting

The Claims
Marineland claims that its LED Double Bright Lighting System delivers 600 lumens per watt of electricity, that the light penetrates deep into an aquarium and has the shimmer of true sunlight. It also claims that the LED Double Bright has 17,000 hours of life.

The Tests
The Marineland LED system that I tested was the 24-inch to 36-inch model. It has 12 LEDs in three rows of four. The two outer rows are daylight white, and the inner row is blue. More>>

I have several of these lights that are on my 40 gallon planted aquariums. My plants do very well.
