Standard Double LED - "The Standard in Planted Aquarium Lighting"
Welcome to a better planted aquarium. Our Standard Double LED Planted Aquarium Lights were made to make your plants grow like crazy.
We have to copy the sun remember?
Our LED Aquarium Lights have become a favorite in the aquarium plant hobby. They easily and quickly enhance the look of low light aquarium plants and will bring you to the "Tier 2" aquarium plants.
We have multiple customers with over 8 - Yes I said 8 of our Standard Double Planted Aquarium LED Lights. Why? Because they give your plants what they need.
Our aquarium led lights deliver what is called the best, "Spectral Composition" You and I both know there are all kinds of different colors of lights you can use in your house. Well it is the same with LED Lights. Not all LED's put out the correct spectral composition. (Even if they might look bright to your own human eyes.)
The Standard Double Aquarium LED comes with TWO PACKED Rows of LEDS. (Hence the "Double" in the name)
How packed ?
Our best selling size, the 48 incher, has 108 LEDS... On one half.
YES- 216 LED's... the correct type of LEDs in our 48 fixture.
...and that 48 inch fixture only pulls 48 watts of power!
(A 48 inch fixture will fit a 40L, 55, 75 or 90 gallon)
These lights are called the "Standard Double" because they will fit most standard aquarium sizes. The Standard Double is best suited for aquarium that are up to 24 inches tall. (Any aquarium deeper than 24 inches should consider the "Blaster Series')
Our LED Aquarium Lights will fit most standard aquarium lengths. They come with legs and we recommend that you run them directly over your aquarium...without a hood. That said. If you have a glass lid, you can just lay them right over top of the glass. This will reduce the amount of light that reaches your plants however.
While LED lights are slightly more of initial investment, unlike t5 bulbs, THEY LAST FOR OVER 50,000 hours! (or 5 years!) Not to mention, the light they give off is just better!.
OUR AQUARIUM LED LIGHTS ARE FULL STRIPS- You aren't paying for a fixture and asked to "Stretch this out to make it 48 inches."
NOPE- Our LIGHTS COME STACKED with LEDS in them. Only the last inch doesn't have LEDS in it.
Again, Our lights have the spectral composition that your plants need. While we don't supply the exact spectral composition, or PAR Value (PAR is just a measurement of light in a range- but not the ACTUAL Nanometers/ Spectral Composition)
CUSTOM SIZES AVAILABLE AT NO EXTRA CHARGE! (Just purchase the next size up and let us know the exact length. Put a note in the comments. "I bought a 48 inch, I need it 44 inches")
Look- If you aren't happy with the lights after 60 days. Simply SEND THEM BACK FOR A FULL REFUND. We will even cover shipping!
Grab some of our BEST SELLING LED AQUARIUM LIGHTS and be ready to have your planted tank blow your mind!
(Don't take my word for it. Look at all of these pictures and testimonials then grab some for you and your aquarium.)
Goldfish Member Travis N. is killing it with these lights!
"2 1/2 months in.. no question Dustin your lights are the shit... I couldn't be happier with the results." Travis N.
I had to scrape algae at least weekly just to see in my tanks. I was running triple filtration, 50% H20 changes, water-polishing, everything. I finally figured out my lights were too old. I tried replacing them with cheap LED spots from Ebay. Those made it WORSE! Then I got the dreaded blackbeard algae! OOOF! I was about to throw in the towel on a 35yr old hobby. As a last ditch attempt at keeping my tanks, I decided to try Dustin’s lights. I’ve been watching Dustin since about 2010-ish? I knew he was a good guy who knows his $**t, and I trust him. So I found a buyer for one of my kidneys to raise the money. *cough* Then I slipped in pee at Walmart, and with that settlement and the kidney money, I finally had enough to order them, and let me tell you, what a difference! First off all, it is SO nice not having to struggle with big lights in my way! These little strips are barely there! And the dimmer switches not only allow you change the brightness, you can also adjust the color temperature, which is nice for adjusting the ambient light while entertaining. But most importantly, my algae stopped dead in it’s tracks! (The BB algae took a little more work, of course... but still.) No more quickly scrubbing tanks every Friday night before our friends arrive! And THEN my plants started to grow! Plants that were all green and boo-boo lookin’ sent up new shoots that were fuller and more robust than the old growth below them, AND they were yellow and red and orange, like they were supposed to be! I can’t recommend these strongly enough. I have no regrets. I don’t even mind the dialysis, as long that algae is gone. One last thing though- these are bright and will do well in almost any setup, but if you have a tall tank and light-hungry plants, and you wonder if you should get the super-blasters, do it.
Just hooked this light up and it’s the perfect strength for my low-med tech tank. I can’t wait to see the plants grow!
First impression is great. The light is beautiful, slim lightweight design and two buttons to change the color of the LEDs. My only complaint is the lack of and on & off switch but its not something I will need anyway as it will be on a timer soon. Lovely red and whites to make a golden effect i love without tannins.
I used to believe that any old aquarium light would work for a planted tank. I've used generic aquarium hoods with florescent lights, I've tried Fluval AquaSky LEDs, and a few off brand LEDs from Amazon. Some of my plants were surviving sure, but I never had those flourishing aquariums you see on social media. I finally caved and decided to give Dustin's Standard Double a try and the difference in plant growth is phenomenal. My plants are no longer just surviving - they are thriving. Top that off with some Growth Juice and I finally feel like a real aquascaper. I'm slowly switching all of my lights out for the Standard Double; two down, 2 more to go!
Well finally got standard duo led light for my 125 gallon tank I am setting up. there was miscommunication about the tracking number in the beginning. But Dustin or somebody got right on it and put me at ease. So when I first put them on my tank they didn't look so bright and I went oh what the heck. Anyway I set up a timer and went thru dimmer setting to make sure it was all the way up. let them run for awhile. There must be a little burn in or break-in time. After that there pretty bright. I won't be able see how they do on plants for bit. My tank is just a box of water right now with some filters going and heater right now. It has been sitting for awhile and I wanted make sure everything was going well no leaks equipment worked. Get idea how stuff works before jumping in. I have the dirt, substrate and filtration everything to start except my one item the 3d background which I am waiting for. But that's from another company. Then I can start my setup and then plants.
