    Picked up a 48in national geographic LED light today. Beyond happy with the build quality and colors! Not to mention it was only $75! This pics do not do it justice, its much whiter light. The fish colors popped a lot though! Newlightfull.jpgNEW LIGHT.jpgNew Light1.jpg

    Does look fairly bright! How many LEDs does it have? Also does it have night effects/blue lights? Glad you are happy with your purchase!!

    Thank you for reviewing and providing your opinion! I've personally have not bought any Nat Geo items, but have heard only good about them, so i might have to give them a try, plus a 48 inch LED bar for $75, that's a good deal. By chance, do you have any PAR data ?>

    I like the looks of that fixture. I am going to Petsmart and get the 48 inch. Hope it is bright enough for my 72 gallon bow front tropical tank. The price is sure right.

    Nice looking light again, does it work well with your live plants?

    I went to Petsmart and got the Nat geo 48 inch led. I am sorry to say It lasted 3 days and several leds went out and several stopped working. I returned it back to them. They had another return one the same one with the same problem. I guess you can get bad in any product and an glad some are happy with them. I liked the price it was good. I turned around and ordered a Current Satillite Plus from Kens Fish good service and fast shipping. It has very good reviews with the different lighting affects and it resonable priced at $119.99. Thanks

    Sorry everyone, been gone for a while. I no longer have the box or info on PAR data but I will say the light is still working fine, every bulb. I definitely love it, and the night blue lights are not over powering like some. I would definitely buy another one. Not sure how it works with live plants. My live plants are running under a t8 color max bulb right now, I was going to get a plant bulb but the color spectrum was about the same and it was 5 dollars cheaper.
