- 3-year warranty
- Easy-to-use, in-line remote
- Highly water-resistant
The Easy Plant LED Light was designed to be easy, while also being affordable and long-lasting. This was no easy task as we had to evaluate every feature to make sure it justified its cost.
We started by giving it a 3-year warranty. This meant every feature afterwards had to lend itself to longevity. We made it HIGHLY water-resistant. One of the main ways lights go bad is from water, whether it's from being knocked in or it's getting sprayed with water from an air stone. Plus, our light has the ETL certification, which covers the UL listing, CSA listing, and several other North American safety standards.
How powerful is it? We wanted a light that was bright, grew plants, and made fish look great. However, it needed to work on aquariums of any size. So we made it adjustable. You can dim the light down. At its brightest, it has the most light output of any light we've ever sold. However, you can dim it down 6 levels to get the perfect level for your aquarium.
With it being so bright, does it get hot? It does get warm, but we paired efficient LEDs with an efficient ballast. We also redesigned the housing to be more robust and dissipate heat better. You'll see competing lights that are 10% to 50% less efficient. This adds up to more heat and more money spent to get the light your plants need.
Next up was making it easy to use. Therefore, we purposely made a simple, in-line remote with limited options. It has a mode button that cycles between on, off, and night time mode. Then, there are two buttons for up and down to adjust how bright the light is. The light has 10 brightness settings — from 10% to 100% brightness — and the display on the controller shows the current light intensity. (Yes, it saves its settings in a power outage or when using a timer.) This means you can share your settings with others easily. "My 20-gallon tank uses the Easy Plant LED at level at 60% and I've been growing these plants."
Does it have sunrise/sunset mode? Can I change the individual LEDs? These features didn't make the cut. The price increase and loss in efficiency in the LEDs didn't make sense when achieving our goals of the best possible light that lasts a long time while remaining affordable.
Perfect combination of construction and utility. Not only love the fit on my tank and and the durability of the light but I can see that my plants are growing so much better after upgrading to Aquarium Co-Op light. Totally satisfied.
I really like the aquarium co-op light. It’s not fancy, but it does the basic things I need l, and it does them really well. I love that you can use it with a timer right out of the box. I really don’t enjoy fiddling around with components and putting multiple things together to make something work. Before this light I was using a hygger, and I do like those lights a lot for the price point, but the co-op light is just so much better without breaking the bank. Definitely worth it if you’re just getting into the hobby or looking to upgrade what you have.
The difference this light has added to the look of my aquarium is so nice. The fish immediately seemed to notice and are out and about more. My plants are doing well & I hope to be adding more soon.
Easy as pie light. I like the adjustable settings.
This light works great, I like that it saves your settings dispute being unplugged or controlled separately by a smart outlet. Overall this light is of a high quality.
