Please Read

Reminder: ColorCast is an accent background light, not an aquarium light fixture. It is not intended to be used as the only light source of an aquarium.

The ColorCast Background lights are designed to be used alongside a regular aquarium light, it's not a substitute for an aquarium light. For best color blending and immersive effects pair it with a ColorPlus Aquarium LED.

What is a background light?

Regular aquarium lights illuminate the entire water column, resulting in excessively bright, monochromatic aquariums. The ColorCast background light only illuminates the back glass of your aquarium, providing depth and softens your lighting. This design makes it possible for your aquarium to be rich in color and dim at the same time, creating beautiful ambient lighting for the entire room. During the day it adds a rich color-pop to your aquarium and at night it creates a soft and warm lighting effect.

Aquariums Taller than 20": The included 18" tall background film works flawlessly with aquariums up to 20" tall (As the bottom 2" of the glass are always covered by the gravel) If you have an aquarium taller than 20", We recommend you to get the Serene Extra Tall Background Film.
