Just purchased this light. I press button one time to turn on and then press one more time to set color. However, light does not turn off by pressing button, I need to completely unplug it. Is this normal operation or is it defective?
Thank you for contacting us. To turn it off, you have to hold the button until it goes off, not just press it. This will take several seconds.

will this fit my small super fish tank
Not knowing what size tank you own, I can't say, however, it is 8" long, and about an inch in width. By the way, this site is actually for the United States and Canada, and this product may not be available in the United Kingdom.

I just purchased a 10 gallon glofish aquarium kit that came with this light, all it does when I turn it on is strobe through the colors! How do I get it to stop strobing and stay on one color?
When it reaches the color you want, press the on/off button one time, quickly. This will set it.

Do you have to go through the whole color cycling process every time you turn it on in the morning...will it not return to the last color setting. That's kind of pain to due that every time you turn it back on.
Yes, you would need to do that each time.

How many watts does this strip produce?
The true wattage draw varies between 1 watt and 2.25 watts depending on the LEDs illuminated as the device rotates through its sequence. It does not produce wattage, it uses wattage. Wattage is a measure of energy only and does not tell you how much it illuminates. This light is not suitable for live plants, for example.

We sell the Hidden LED Light Sticks in 8", 13" and 20" lengths through local fish stores, and various website vendors. Online, I recommend www.drsfostersmith.com, www.thatpetplace.com, www.petmountain.com and www.petsolutions.com to name a few. This light offers blue and white leds, and is very bright as well as waterproof. It attaches to the frame of the tank.

changing light color
How do I keep this on 1 light color instead of continuing changing colors?
I want to keep it on the white light most of the time.
As it changes colors, keep your thumb or finger hovering over the button. Once it reaches the color you desire to have on, press the button quickly, one time.

led bubbler, that is included in your 3 gallon half moon aquarium
can you tell me who makes or sells the submersible 6 color
changing led bubbler? you do not list this item on your web page.
That's because we do not sell this under the Tetra name, except in kits. We do sell it under our other brand name, Marineland. It is called LED Bubble Ring, item ML90532. Most fish and pet stores carry it as do Petsmart and Petco, I believe.

tetra color changing led lights
Does these lights supply necessary uvb rays needed for healthy amphibians (tree frogs)? If not, do you sell lighting of that type?
No, they do not. And no, unfortunately, we do not make or sell UVB bulbs. Your local pet store should have many options for you though. You should be able to find a UVB for amphibians, but if not, any recommended for turtles will also work. I recommend the dome style light fixture with a ceramic socket and the bulbs that fit them and are UVB and heat combined. Otherwise, you will need a fluorescent fixture and fluorescent UVB bulb. It will not do heat.

Where is the color switch? At the end of the light bar there is a hole but no switch.
The light is blue and only blue. where is the switch supposed to be? There is an oblong hole at the end of the light bar. Is that where the switch should be? What can I do?
The switch is on the cord, about halfway down it. You will see what looks like a 2-3 inch black box with a tiny button in the middle of it.

As the light lands on the color you like and wish to set it on, press the button on the switch one time, quickly.

how do you stop cycle of light and have only one?
After you turn it on, observe the colors closely until you see the one you want. You have to quickly press the button on the switch just one time to get the light to pause and set at that color. Remember, only press it once.

Can you plug the LED light into a timer and have it come on and go off with the time set on the timer
No, these lights are not designed to work with a timer.

Can the LED touch the water?
Because when the tank is full the water level comes to the bottom of the black frame and therefore would touch the LED light when it's clipped on
Yes, it is waterproof.

How many total ights is on this stick????? And does the blue color glow like the glo fish blue does on the glo fish sticks???
There are 8 LEDS on it, but as far as the color range goes, it slowly moves through all of the primary colors so you can get an unknown number of colors, depending on where you stop, etc.
It will not be as intense as the other sticks.

Will this work for glo fish
if I pause to blue, will it show the glo fish very well?
Not like a light designed for them, no. It may show them a little bit, but I would go with the glofish light stick or something similar.

Can ColorFusion LED light be used with a timer?
I have the Tetra ColorFusion LED light and have been pressing the button to turn it on and off every day. I would like to use a timer to turn it on and off. Is there anyway to use a timer with the ColorFusion LED light without pressing the button?
Yes, you would plug it into the timer, after pressing the button to the on position.

i had asked how to turn the lights off for at night. Answer was to hold down the button.PLEASE... WHERE IS THERE A BUTTON ????I do not see any Button
could you please send a diagram, is it on the power cord itself (don't see one there), is it on the bubble stone, or the lights themselves? I for the life of me do NOT see any button. I just pulled the plug, but wouldn't think you'd have to do that. my led light is oval in shape, not round, and it has 6 lights. blue, green, red, blue, green red.... Thanks.
It does not sound like you have the Colorfusion LED light then. What light do you own? If it is just the led bubbler, then what tank did you buy?
Date published: 2015-02-02
how do you turn the led lights off, for at nighttime?
Hold the button until it turns off.
