8" led lights
What is the wavelength(nm)on this light?
We have not measured the nm on these lights as it is not recommended for marine life or plants. The bulbs are basic blue leds.

Is this waterproof?
When clipped to my Tetra 10 gallon tank (regular tank, not glofish-specific), and when the water in the tank is filled per instructions (just under the black part on top such that water level is not visible from the front), this light slightly touches the top of the water. It's not submerged, but it does touch.
Is this safe? The light seems to be fully encased, so I haven't worried thus far. Also no problems thus far. Would like to know if I can continue as is, or do I need to lower the water level?
This is perfectly fine, it is waterproof.

do your blue led lights show fine particles
I have a 20 gallon long with 5 danio glofish and 5 tetra glofish and two albino corys. The tank been running for 6 months. I have done my regual water changes,timer on the lights, proper cleaning of filter. and have a power head as well. The only thing I can notice that does not seem right is i Can see the really fine particles. I have used products before to see if they get rid of them and I cannot the only other thing that i see weird is that my nitrates and nitrites are high, but every thing else looks good. My ph is great alkaline is water is good no chlorine or nitrates and nitrites coming from the water thats coming out of my faucet. Please help He
Our blue lights do enhance the "shimmer" effect of the aquarium's water movement but should not be a reason more than any other light source to show free floating particulates. If you are showing high nitrites and nitrates, you may be overfeeding or not removing enough of the biological waste load with each 25% water change. We recommend you increase the frequency of your small, partial water changes while reducing the amount of water you remove each time. In other words, instead of completing a 25% water change every two weeks, try removing 10-15% of the water (using a gravel vacuum) every 5-7 days. We suggest you also reduce the amount of food that you are adding into the tank until your water quality improves. Lastly, to help break down your nitrites, try adding our SafeStart product which introduces beneficial, nitrifying bacteria into your tank.

will a blacklight hurt my glofish ... and do they need to have a dark tank to sleep
I have a led light that changes color but it is very bright and it doesnt leave any dark places in my tank i have it mostly covered so it gets dark at night ... do i need to keep it covered or are they ok with it not getting completly dark
A blacklight won't hurt them, no, but it won't show their colors properly, either. All lights should be off for at least 8 hours a night.

We have the 2.5 gallon tank and need a new light. Is the blue LED light on the website the right one? A light came with our tank.
The light we have can be switched bt blue and white
We do not make a 2.5 gallon tank, so I'm not sure which kit you own. However, the one in the link is blue only, so I do not think it would be the correct one for your kit. If you email a picture to us directly, we can probably figure it out and make a recommendation.

where to install my glofish led lights
I have a 20 gallon long and I bought two glofish 6 inch led strips that clip on. I just want to make sure that I am installing the correct and make sure I put them in the right place. I just want my tank setup to be perfect.
Where to install them is personal preference. We would recommend centered, either in the front or the back.
