Has anyone bought anything from all pond solutions and how do you rate their more 'budget' stuff

Just bought this light bar from them. Must say im impressed for £40. Doesn't feel toooo cheap and plasticy.

Fantastic heat distribution the light is cool to the touch after 12hrs and casts a nice bright even white light.

It says it encourages photosynthesis but im pretty sure that's just jazz wording to sell. Still it's all i can afford for now so it will be getting put to the test with some vallisneria and elodea... nothing too strenous for it hopefully.(only had it 3 days)

Anyyyyways.

Was wondering if anyone has had the light long term and can give a review of sorts. With the heat distribution being so good ik expecting a long life.

Also hows it been for growing your plants

I have one of the PLED lights but because it not controlable and very bright l still prefer my t5s Think they are ok if you have floaters to shade the light a little esp with slow growers. Marc md fish tanks is using them on his plant holding tank . The £10 nano lights are good value IMO

Their stuff does get some differing comments, but from our own dealings quiet pleased with them.

We purchased one of their Surface skimmers, not as fancy shaped as the Eheim one , but a fraction of the cost.

What really surpirsed us was how quiet the pump was, yet a good strong output, so pleased that we got another of the same.
Its little filter pad is very good a catching loads of debris and can be changed easily and quickly in situ.

I think this is a rebadged sunsun light (from the ADE line). I've got the sunsun ade 400c (which is strange as that's the only length all ponds solutions doesn't have) and I really like it. Build quality seems really good and solid. The brushed/polished metal casing gives it a real premium feel and works well as the heatsink for the LEDs. Like you said, it doesn't get hot at all. It is also really bright. Should be able to grow most plants, providing the tank is not super deep.

Yeah im super happy with mine really can't argue for £40. My tank is only a little over a foot deep so not hard on the light by any means.

Haven't heard of sun sun before will have to have a google.
