I have two on the front rim of my 75. I love them as a blue-white accent, but don't think they're really sufficient by themselves. They do brighten up the front of the tank significantly, and highlight fish with blue coloration, as well as provide some glitter-lines wherever the water's surface is disrupted.

I did have one fail on me - water got into it, and the inner workings got mouldy ... and died.

"Moonlight" is very blue, LOL. I like the morning/evening look with just the moonlights on in front and the N/O T-5 in the back turned on:

I put a couple together and made a light bar for a 10 gallon shrimp tank. You can turn just the blue lights on. I haven't submerged mine so no worries of leaking. For what they are the price is a little steep but I like the idea they are a standard light tube diameter so retrofitting a hood takes a couple clips.

Sent using voodoo through my phone to your retinas.

I wanna see the red. I feel that my marineland db led washes out the color of my tank. If I put my old t8 fixture, everything looks awesome.
