In one of your answers you stated that this light would be perfect on shallow tanks. What depth do you consider a shallow tank and what is the maximum depth that this lilght will work at?
By Customer Service on July 16, 2012

Hello Errol,

Less than 16".

Happy but a little disappointed
August 6, 2012
I was very excited to have ordered my FIRST set of LED lights... the day it arrived, I was plain ol' giddy. Overall, I am VERY happy with my lights but a little disappointed in the construction of it. The switches seem pushed in and misaligned with the outer casing... they still work but seem pushed in.
Pros:
Effective, Easy to Use
Best Uses:
Saltwater Tanks, Large Aquariums

Pleasant surprise
July 30, 2012
I have a 50gal tank we've just started and I couldn't use a Marineland LED light because it really did not have the length. This is truly 48" long. Good lighting with a simple set-up. Excellent choice if you're looking for a good quality lighting solution.
Pros:
Perfect size, Easy to Use, Effective, Good Value
Best Uses:
Saltwater Tanks

alot of bulbs...needs more bang
July 8, 2012
The lights do have a shimmer effect. Sleek design. They look very good. I bought 2 48 inch sky lights for a 55 gallon salt reef. Not enough light. I will need to purchase 1 more for adequate lighting. For 500 dollars I could have bought one light fixture that would come with storm effects and so bright you need to turn it down or burn your corals. I give it 4 stars because they really do look good. Just need to purchase 3 for a 55 gal. If I could have light the tank with just 2 I would give it a 5 but I will need to now spend more money.
Pros:
Easy to Use, Good Value, Effective, Safe, Durable
Best Uses:
Freshwater Tanks, Saltwater Tanks

Pros:
Good Value, Effective, Safe, Sweet, Durable, Easy to Use
Cons:
No cord for each lighting
Best Uses:

The SkyLed 48" Aquarium LIght
June 9, 2012
The porduct sits on top of the 55 gallon fish tank and it's easy to lift the lid of the tank to feed my little critters. I can change the mood of the tank with the different lights. Three lights and three switches. It really adds on the my other lights in my tank. Nice depth. It really is all great just wish it were wider I almost want to buy another one. This is a great product and you can't beat the price.
Pros:
Durable, Good Value, Safe, Effective, Easy to Use
