Questions and Answers:
By Ken from Colorado on November 7, 2012
I have a 300 gallon tank that is 30" deep. I currently have two 36" T5HO lights that need to be replaced. Would two of these lights perform as well as the T5HO lights? I have fresh water fish in it and was also wondering if it would light up the bottom of the tank being that it is 30" deep.
By Customer Service on November 9, 2012

Answer:
Hello Ken,
We have not run our SL-36 lights on an aquarium with your water depth. However, our product specialist estimates that two of the SL-36 lights will provide plenty of lighting from the top to the bottom of your 30" tank. These lights are not rated by Aquatop Aquatic Supplies to support photosynthetic life so we do not recommend this set up if you have live plants or corals. For planted and reef systems, be sure to check out our SLP and SLR Series. http://www.truaqua.com/aquarium-plant-led-light-36-inch.html

Hello Ricardo,

We have received your recent product inquiry regarding AquaTop's 36" SkyLED aquarium light fixture. SkyLED units do not include controls for dimming the LEDs. Each unit includes three switches to independently control the LEDs. Each unit has white, red and blue LEDS. Please check the link below. The product pictures include a lighting diagram that illustrates the different color schemes and combinations one can achieve by using the independent LED switches.

I have a 150 gallon fresh water tank 72x18x29 I wanted to put the right led fixture on my aquarium so that it will get to the depth of my aquarium what should I do???
By Customer Service on January 11, 2013

Answer:
Hello Terran,
Assuming that your tank is 18 inches deep and 29 inches from front to back, using two SLP-36 lights will provide more than sufficient lighting for a 150 gallon tank and should penetrate far enough into the water to keep you and your ecosystem happy.
Thank you!

Anyone know what the kelvin rating is on these lights? I don't think I saw it anywhere in the product description. I have 2 of these lights and am happy with them for the light output. I'm wondering if plants will grow under them.
By Customer Service on July 26, 2012

Answer:
Hello Jerrie,

We have received your recent product inquiry regarding a 36" SkyLED aquarium light fixture. The Kelvin rating for the white LEDs is 14k. The blue LEDs are rated at 460nm and the red LEDs are rate at 650nm. The SkyLED Series is not marketed by AquaTop Aquatic Supplies to support photosynthetic life. Although if the units are applied to an aquarium system that does not exceed 18" in height, low light loving plants such as Anubias, Crypts and most stemming plants.

If there is anything further we can do for you please let us know.

HI I want to know what is the maxium height with cover this lamp in reef tank?
By Customer Service on July 26, 2012

Answer:
Hello Again Jorge!

We have received your recent product inquiry regarding the use of a 36" SkyLED over a reef aquarium. The SkyLED Series is not marketed to support photosynthetic life. Although if applied to an aquarium which does not exceed 18" they will grow low light loving coral such as mushrooms, zoanthids and most soft coral.

However we are unsure how much usable light an aquarium cover will reduce.

AquaTop Aquatic Supplies does not market nor insist that the SkyLED Series will grow plants or coral but we have many customer who use them on aquariums that house low light loving photosynthetic life.

If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to ask.

By Jorge Higueros from Guatemala on July 26, 2012
In the led aquatop 36 what is the maxium deep of the light in tank and the same question for the 48", for example my tank 70 heigt and is a reef tank
By Customer Service on July 26, 2012

Answer:
Hello Again Jorge,

We have received your recent product inquiry regarding the use of a 48" and/or 36" SkyLED aquarium light on a 70" tall reef aquarium. If you are looking to use the light for decorative purpose they will do well making coral and fish color pop. We do not recommend the use of either unit to support coral growth, especially on a 70" tall aquarium. Useable light will reach a maximum depth of 18".

If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to ask.

By Linda from Gilbert, AZ on August 31, 2012
Can this light sit on top of a glass cover?

By Customer Service on August 31, 2012

Answer:
Hello Linda,

We have received your recent product inquiry regarding a 36" SkyLED aquarium light fixture. We do not recommend setting the light fixture directly on top of the glass aquarium cover. Each SkyLED includes adjustable leg mounts which you could use to prop up and off of your glass aquarium cover. If you are to use the light leg mounts, the unit would sit approximately 2" above the aquarium cover keeping the light fixture out of water's way.

If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Great Value and Tank Looks Amazing
June 12, 2012
If you need lighting to provide you a bright tank and a great shimmering effect, but are working on a budget, then this is your light. I was impressed initially by the fixture itself. It has a clean, streamline design that looks pro-grade. While it's very light in weight, the design's fine lines maintain a quality look. I wasn't sure at first of the simple plastic legs, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were easy to install, and mounted effortlessly to the tank. It sits at a nice height and sets securely. The cord was easy to work with, and the finished product looked like a high-end light. As for the light itself, I loved it. The LEDs are bright and penetrate deep into the tank. The glow is cool and consistent. I leave all 3 colors on a once, and it just fills the tank with a even, cool white light. The ripples, waves, and bubbles really glisten, picking up hints of blue and red, and the fish really sparkle. Any fish with a potentially shimmering color, really pop under these lights; its like I'm looking at a new set of fish. The fixture is silent and easy to slide to and from the foreground and background. Some buyers might want a more nailed down location, but the light-weight body won't provide that. Its quite cool to the touch, and markedly cooler than my old T5HO. I'm also looking forward to some energy savings from my previous light. I still can't get over the price; I feel the value is unbeatable. When you see this thing in action, you'll be amazed it didn't cost more. I usually fell that "you get what you pay for", so I wasn't expecting to be overwhelmed, but this light really surprised and impressed me. Only con: I like to keep a couple of low maintenance live plants in my tank, and they don't seem to be responding well to the LEDs; but its perfect for non-planted tanks. *I've only had the tank for a few weeks, so I can't comment on "Durability", but so far, so good.
Pros:
Easy to Use, Good Value, Effective, Safe
Best Uses:
Large Aquariums, Freshwater Tanks, Small Aquariums

cool lights
June 11, 2012
I purchased 1 SkyLED 36" for my 40g breeder tank and I am totally satisfied with its performance, I used to a run the marinland LED. But these light are bright and it brings out the colors of the tank. This light fixture is also light in weight and easy to mount. I would highly recommend this light for anyone looking for a quality LED lighting.The best feature is the ability to change the coloring of the light. There are blue, red and white lights and can be used in any combination to create different effects. . I am very satisfied with this company and will be doing business with them in the future.

Great Value! Beautiful light cast.
May 18, 2012
I use this LED fixture on a 58 gallon Oceanic freshwater aquarium. The aquarium is tall and the light penetration is very good. Shimmer effect is minimal as opposed to other lights I have seen in use. The moonlights provide a great effect and brings the fish that hide out into the open so they can be observed. The build quality is great and the fit onto the aquarium was very good. This light is a very good value. The regular price is ridiculously over-inflated to show the savings. We use all of the LED's during the day. The red and blue bring out color in the aquarium. A version with multiple cords to use with multiple timers would be appreciated. I'd buy this light again.
Pros:
Good Value, Effective, Easy to Use
Cons:
Can use with only1 timer
Best Uses:
Freshwater Tanks

SkyLED 36"
March 10, 2012
I purchased 2 SkyLED 36" for my 72" 150g fowlr tank and I am totally satisfied with its performance, features and value of this light. I used to a run power compact flourescent light and this LED light was bright and it brings out the colors of the tank. The best feature is the ability to change the coloring of the light. There are blue, red and white lights and can be used in any combination to create different effects. This light fixture is also light in weight and easy to mount. Also comparing the cost, lighting outputs and versatility of the SkyLED to other manufacturers, you get the best bang for the buck. I would highly recommend this light for anyone looking for a quality LED lighting. I received a tracking number within a couple of days and delivery in about a week. I am very satisfied with this company and will be doing business with them in the future.

My Aquarium Looks So Good!
October 3, 2011
The LEDs make my fish tank look steller! The color of my fish look great. I can see colors I did not see before. The LEDs shine all the way to the bottom of my tank and give the shimmer effect of natural daylight! At night I like to shut off the White LEDs and use the Blue and Red LEDs to give my tank a Moon-Lit effect.
Pros:
Good Value, Safe, Durable, Easy to Use, Effective
Best Uses:
Freshwater Tanks, Large Aquariums, Making Color Pop, Saltwater Tanks
