That is odd, although I don't have any experience with Nicrew. I know on my older current satellite 48" strip light, it came with a remote allowing you to change colors, intensity, patterns, etc. I kept it plugged into an old school mechanical lamp timer. The light would always power up to what I had it previously set to. I never really played with it. Set it and forget it kind of thing.I did plug it into a timer to see what happens tonight & more importantly, tomorrow. The problem is it doesn't "wake up" the same every time. Heavy vs lighter fingered button pushing? Maybe it's a cheap LED thing...
Fingers crossed for white factory settings, not moon blue.
oh noNicrew is affordable and good, I like their lighting.
For "medium" id suggest either the Nicrew Planted Plus, Nicrew Classic Plus, or Nicrew SkyLED Plus (which you can dim for as it can be high light full brightness). Of those, I love my SkyLED Plus lights, they do well.
But, if you can get JC&P full spectrum, I love those best. In built timers, and they do really well for plants, even medium light. On par with Nicrew for price, but doesn't seem like they're widely available everywhere.
Here are my two 20 gallon longs.
First has a 30" JC&P full spectrum on full brightness with a layer of water lettuce and vals up top

Second is a Nicrew SkyLED Plus with a dense layer of duckweed and water lettuce

Can get an idea of how the lighting looks on the tanks themselves.
The JC&P does well for my red Ozelot. New leaves grow in a deep wine red under that light.
