Choosing the Right Aquarium Light

Choosing the right light is one of the most important aspects of an aquarium. It can also be one of the most confusing, especially for beginner aquarists. Choosing the best light fixture for your aquarium depends on the needs of the animals and plants you'll be keeping, the size and dimensions of your aquarium and your budget.

Fish and Plant Needs

The number 1 reason to have a light on your aquarium is to enjoy the beauty of the fish, plants and decorations. In addition, the fish need to see so they can get around, find food and interact with each other. But there are other considerations; fish and live plants have specific light needs. Some fish inhabit open water in rivers, streams and lakes, where the light is bright most of the day. Others prefer dimmer habitats among fallen logs or under overhanging vegetation. The same applies to plants; some grow in shallow or open water, where the light is bright and constant throughout the day. Others are found in deeper water or in the shadow of taller plants or overhanging shrubs and trees. It's important to choose a light that is appropriate for the types of fish and plants you keep.

How To Choose The Right Aquarium Light - Aqueon

Light Intensity And Spectrum

Not all light is created equal. Intensity refers to how strong or "bright" a light is. Spectrum is a way of describing the mixture of different colors – or wavelengths – a light produces. Light spectrum is often given a Kelvin rating or "K rating". Light sources that give off a yellowish or warm effect have a low Kelvin rating, while those that produce a crisp bluish-white or cool light have a high Kelvin rating. Most freshwater aquarium lights are rated between 5,500 and 8,000 Kelvin.

Intensity and spectrum are less important in aquariums or with artificial plants, although some lights enhance natural colors better than others. A light that's too intense may promote algae, especially in non-planted tanks. Where live plants are concerned, proper intensity and spectrum can make a difference between success and failure. Water depth is a factor, as well. Certain wavelengths, especially blue, penetrate deeper into water than others, and this can be critical to live plants. Let your local dealer know your tank's height and the types of plants you want to keep when getting advice on the best light  fixture for your aquarium.

How To Choose The Right Aquarium Light - Aqueon

Type of Light Fixtures

There are several types of aquarium lights, allowing aquarists to choose one that best suits their needs and those of their aquarium inhabitants. Aqueon® and Coralife® offer a wide range of full hoods, strip lights and clip-on lights. Here are some common choices for freshwater aquariums:

Standard Fluorescent

For years this has been the most common form of aquarium lighting and it continues to be popular today. Affordable pricing and a selection of bulbs for different  applications make fluorescent lights a great choice for many aquarists. Aqueon offers strip lights and full hoods as well as a selection of bulbs for rectangular, hexagon and bowfront aquariums. Bulbs dim over time and should be replaced every 10 to 12 months.

Aqueon Single Tube Strip Fluorescent Aquarium Light 48 inch

Aqueon Fluorescent Light Fixtures


Rapidly becoming the most popular type of aquarium lighting, these energy-efficient lights offer features that aren't available in other aquarium lights. Aqueon LED lights are available for aquariums of almost any size. They use far less energy than other lights, do not heat the water and the LEDs last several years without losing intensity. OptiBright lights feature higher intensity, programmable timers, output (intensity) and spectrum controls, nighttime moonlights, adjustable sunrise/sunset and moonrise/moonset timers and different color options!

Day/Night Cycle

It's important for all living things to have a regular day/night cycle for optimum health and well-being. In the tropics, where most aquarium fish, invertebrates and plants come from, there are 12 hours of light (known as the photoperiod) and 12 hours of darkness every day of the year. Planted aquariums do best with 12 hours of light, while those without live plants will have less algae with a photoperiod of approximately 8 to 10 hours. Use a timer on your aquarium light to create a consistent day/night cycle. To enjoy your aquarium during evening hours, place it away from windows and set the timer accordingly.

How To Choose The Best Aquarium Lighting - Aqueon

Algae And Light

A commonly held belief in aquarium keeping is that too much light causes excessive algae growth. Algae are nature's way of purifying water and are a natural part of any aquarium. The truth is that nuisance algae outbreaks are more often caused by nutrient build-up than lighting issues. Planted aquarium owners rarely need to clean algae even though they use high output lighting because nutrients are quickly utilized by the plants, thus starving any algae. The trick to preventing algae growth is to manage nutrients with regular water changes, chemical filter media and not overfeeding your fish, along with providing the right amount of light.

In aquariums, the term "nutrients" refers to nitrate and phosphate, which typically come from fish food and the resulting fish waste. But there is another source, which is tap water. Many tap water sources contain high levels of these impurities and performing water changes with nitrate or phosphate-laden water will not reduce levels and may even cause them to rise. If your tap water contains high nutrient levels, use reverse osmosis (RO) or deionized (DI) water with Aqueon® Water Renewal added to fill your aquarium and perform water changes.

Choosing the right light for your aquarium enhances its natural beauty and ensures the long-term health of your fish, plants and invertebrate life!

Best Clip-on Lights for Aquarium and Fish Tank (Review &Guide)

In the previous article, we discussed aquarium lighting in detail. Now, let’s look at the best clip-on aquarium lights suitable for small fish tanks.

So let’s get started.


What is a clip-on aquarium light?

A clip-on aquarium light comes with a light fixture and a soft-touch switch or a clip that allows you to clip it over the fish tank glass. For small fish tanks, a clip-on aquarium light is the perfect option. They usually produce less light than larger fittings and that makes them ideal for smaller tanks or areas where targeted lighting is required.

Best Clip-on Aquarium Light Review

1-ECtENX LED Aquarium Clip-on Light (With White & Blue Colors)


The ECtENX LED Aquarium Light is a durable, energy-efficient, and dual color LED light (white and blue) to light up your small tank. The clear white light looks amazing during night time and can be used to enhance colors in corals and fish.

The white and blue lights work perfectly and are absorbed by the chlorophyll of aquatic plants. You can buy one LED light for a 5 to 20-gallon tank and two for 20 to 55-gallon tanks.

Shop now at


The advantage for choosing Blue and White ECtENX LED light is that it provides enough light for aquatic plants to grow healthily.

Moreover, vibrant colors make your fish tanks more alluring at night. And lastly, it is easy to install and comes with an affordable price tag.


The disadvantage, as reported by some people, is the issue of light flicker and a larger wall plug that was difficult to fit into a crowded socket area.

2-Aqueon Aquarium Clip-On LED Light


Aqueon Aquarium is a freshwater aquarium clip-on LED light with a set of 21 bright LED lights for shimmering illumination. It has a 2-way soft-touch LED control for on and off. It can be conveniently mounted on frameless or framed aquariums with mounting screws.

These Aqueon lights will offer vibrant and clear lighting to create a thriving environment. It’s a brilliant option to support your aquatic corals and plants. These lights are most ideal for aquariums 20 gallons or less in size.

Shop now at


They come in a set of bright LEDs to support your fish tank with an affordable price. It’s great value for money with high PAR outputs and a sturdy metal construction.


Some people say that the only disadvantage is the set of bright lights, as they are pretty vibrant with high intensity that can be difficult to look at.

3-Finnex FugeRay Aquarium Clip-on LED Light for Planted Tank (Plus Moonlights)


Finnex FugeRay Aquarium LED light is a series of identical LED lights in a clip light molding. The lights are joined in an even manner to fulfill the requirement of medium-light fish tanks. These lights come with 660nm LEDs to boost chlorophyll photosynthesis.

They can last up to 40,000 hours and feature a moisture resistant PC Splash Guard to guard against any water mishaps. The light spreads around 10 inches and it is ideal for a 10-gallon fish tank.

Shop now at


To offer light durability, the circuit board is manufactured with high quality aluminum and the fixture acts as a heat sink.  It comes with a very pocket-friendly price. The PAR rating for Finnex FugeRay LED light is 35 at 12 inches high.


Some people note heat output from the control box. Also, the 180-day warranty is a bit shorter than its competitors.

4-Astra LED Nano Fish Tank Light for Saltwater+Freshwater Planted Tank & Coral Reef Tank


The Asta 20 is an attractive light with some brilliant features. One of the best things about this light is its versatility. The long gooseneck allows you to clip it on and then place it wherever the light is needed most.

Even more important is the dimmer capability of the lamp. You can adjust the brightness to suit your tank’s needs.

The light can be controlled via DMX with Wi-Fi, although this costs extra. The housing is made with metal cooling fins for quiet operation.

Shop now at


The biggest advantage of the Asta 20 is its flexibility. The long gooseneck and customizable lighting spectrum allow this light to be used in many different applications.


A few people commented that the lights turn pretty hot when they are on for long periods.

5-Wave-point Micro Sun 6,500 k Daylight High Output Clip-on Light


Wave-point Micro Sun LED Fixture Lighting is another great option for saltwater environments and freshwater aquariums. They are equipped with super blue and white daylight lamps surrounded by a sleek aluminum hood with heat removal technology.

The hood and light can be adjusted using two hinges that lock into place with screws. The light attaches to tanks with a suction cup and hook system.

Shop now at


The biggest advantage of Micro Sun lights is their water-resistant construction that can survive accidental immersion.  


This light will heat up so it needs good air circulation to avoid overheating problems.

6-Finnex Stingray LED Clip Light


The Finnex Stingray LED light is a nice-looking light for smaller tanks. One of the distinctive features is its white casing. This makes it suitable for tanks that are not hidden or against a wall. The light isn’t trying to disappear.

At 4 watts, this isn’t a great light for huge aquariums. It will be perfect for smaller tanks and nano tanks.

The fitting is a simple clip bracket with a screw for tightening it. This design works very well for rimless tanks. The gap of 0.6 inches allows this to work for tanks with a rim up to ½” in thickness.

Shop now at


The 7000K light spectrum makes some fish really stand out and produces nice shadows in planted tanks.


The light isn’t very bright so application choice is crucial.

7-Coralife Marine Aquarium Clip-On LED Light


Coralife marine light is a multi-functional and a versatile light that can be used for fish tanks as well as for garages, workbenches, plant seedlings, etc. The clamp is sturdy and the slim positioning should keep the attention on your fish and not the light.

Controlling the light is simple with the 3-way switch. All on, blue on, or all off are the only three options. There are 60 LEDs to light up the tank and promote fish and plant health.

This light is great for smaller tanks. If you want a light that is effective for a nano cube or small betta tank, then this is a great choice. The slim fitting and fixture will not draw attention away from your tank.

Shop now at


The biggest advantage of this lamp is its simplicity and cost. It is one of the most affordable small tank lighting solutions on offer.


A big disadvantage is the lack of flexibility. The neck is fixed so the lamp will not be adjustable once placed.

Our Recommendations

For Fish-Only Tank

Our recommendation for a tank with only fish is the LED ECtENX Aquarium Light because it offers two sets of white and blue lights and is super affordable.

Without plants to support, the lower level of light is not a problem. Using both blue and white lights can help showcase your fish. The gooseneck can also be adjusted to light up one side of your tank while leaving the other side less bright.

For Fresh-Water Planted Tank

The planted version of Aqueon Aquarium Clip-On LED Light is suitable for freshwater planted tanks as it is ideal for growing plants. The set of 60 bright LED lights will support your aquatic plants and help to grow lush plants effectively. It is less expensive compared to other lights and will easily support a 20-gallon freshwater planted tank.

For Saltwater Tank

Now for saltwater tank, we have two recommendations, first is the LED Aquarium Lighting Nano Fish Tank Light. It is a great option for coral reefs and other saltwater plants because the light provides equally distributed illumination throughout the tank. The light can be customized with four different spectrums to achieve the best results.

The next one is Coralife Marine Aquarium Clip-On LED light as it offers a set of 60 bright LEDs with a blue spectrum to give off a deep sea look. A cool white to blue spectrum is the perfect option for saltwater tanks as it helps to grow corals and enhance tank colors.

Other options for Small Tanks

If none of the above suit your needs, then we have a few other options for you. These are a little more flexible and could be used for different applications such as a vivarium, combo tanks, and grow tanks.

1-MingDak LED Under Water Light (White/Blue Colors)


MingDak LED Aquarium Light is the most cost-effective option for small tanks. They are 20% brighter and offer longer performance compared to regular lights.

The basic 7.5-inch light has a set of 18 LEDs that is beneficial to illuminate your tank and enhance the existing fish colors. They work great underwater and use low voltage, so you don’t have to worry about using too much electricity.

Shop now at

It is more than sufficient for a 20 to 40-gallon tank which is a great return on such a low investment. The electric cord is longer than others so you can place your aquarium anywhere you want.

2-Simple Deluxe Clamp Light with 5.5 Inch Aluminum Reflector


Simple Deluxe Clamp Lamp Light is a 5.5 Inch Aluminum Reflector manufactured with a scratch-resistant vinyl sleeve and a spring-powered steel camp with an adjustable ball joint. It has a 60-watt medium base bulb, an on/off push through a switch, 6 feet cord and an adjustable ball joint for focus light area. It’s a great choice for a cheap start and flexible use.

Check list before buying a clip-on light for your tank

We’ve given you quite a few options and even made some recommendations. There are hundreds of different lights available. Let’s finish with a simple checklist to help you make your own choice.

1-Is it suitable for your plants or corals needs?

You know your plants and corals. Low light needs, high light requirements, foreground, background, and living coral are all different plant and lighting requirements that could be in your tank.

One of the best things to do is make a list of your plants and their lighting needs. Consider where each one is located so you can choose a good light for your plants.

2-Is the light size fit for your tank size?

There are three different aspects of matching lights to tank size:

  • Ensure the light is long enough for your tank. If you have a wide tank that is not very deep from front to back, then you may need two or more clip-on lights to cover the entire width of the tank.
  • Check the light is going to reach the middle of your tank. If your tank is squarer, then a clip-on light may not reach the front of your tank from the back. Longer goosenecks can address this problem.
  • Finally, check your tank’s water depth. Light doesn’t penetrate very far into the water. These clip on lights are not the best for tanks with water depth greater than 12″.

3-Can it be clipped on your tank frame?

Do a quick check to make sure the clamp will fit where it’s needed. Rimless tanks may be too thin for certain clamps while tanks with a thick, chunky rim might be too wide for others. Check this to avoid disappointment.

4-Lighting Options and Flexibility

Consider what you need and want from your light and then choose the features that will deliver your desires. For example:

  • Some may want a bright light that is dimmable to look after certain species of fish.
  • Blue light may be a requirement for marine tanks or people who want constant illumination but not algae.
  • A broader color spectrum may be desirable to highlight specific species of fish.

Think about what you want to achieve and then choose a light that will do it for you.

The Best 4K Aquarium for Relaxation II 🐠 Relaxing Oceanscapes - Sleep Meditation 4K UHD Screensaver
Updated: January 25, 2021 - By: Lucas - Categories: Equipment

Lighting is important for small tanks as it is for big tanks. Having the right lighting not only helps to grow healthy and vibrant plants but also make the colors of your tank pop.

For a small tank, finding the right lighting can be an uphill task. If the light is too strong, you will have an algae problem, and if the intensity is too low, the plants will suffer a slow death. You also have to contend with the lack of space to install the lighting fixture.

This is where clip-on LED lights come in handy. To make it easy for you to find the perfect light for your small tank, here are reviews of four excellent options for small and nano aquariums.

The Finnex FugeRay Planted+ clip light is ideal for a small planted aquarium or a saltwater filtration sump. The PAR @ 12-inch depth is 35. However, because this small clip light is mostly used for nano planted tanks that are usually lower than 12 inches, it can work well for even medium light-demanding plants.

Besides white LEDs, it is integrated with blue and red LEDs to adequately lit the aquarium and gives a vibrant feel. It offers two lighting modes with a switch button for daylight with all LEDs on, moonlight with several blue LEDs on, or all the bulbs off. In the daylight mode, the 660 nm red LEDs provide a true wavelength that favors photosynthesis in plants.

The LED bulbs are housed in an aluminum case for better heat dissipation. They are also covered by a PC splash guard, which safeguards them from any water mishaps and moisture. Because of this, the LEDs can serve for an extended lifespan of up to 40,000 plus hours.

The fixture is very slim and light. Since it comes in a clip modeled fixture, it is effortless to install. You only have to slide the aquarium wall into the groove of the gooseneck and use an included nylon crew to fix it over the tank.

You can use it for your Betta fish tank, shrimp, or other tropical fish. The light also benefits to grow plants with its two white daylight modes.

Light modes and timerLight modes and timer #ad

This clip-on light comes with an in-line timer for automatic control. The timer is simply designed with three lighting periods (6/10/12 hours) to choose from. Just turn on the light one morning and choose the lighting time you want the light to be on and it will remember your setting and repeat the same lighting schedule day by day.

The in-line timer also allows you to dim the light by adjusting the intensities of the blue and white channels. So, you don’t need to worry about if the light is too bright for your fish in case you have species that prefer soothing light. If you have Betta fish and some low light plants such as marimo moss balls, anubias, ferns, e.g. you should dim the light to fit the plants.

The setup is the same and as easy as other clip-on lights. It comes with everything you need to attach it to the rim of your aquarium.
