Important shipping notice!! Our factory will be closed from 2/1/2019 through 2/13/2018. Orders made during this time for items not in stock in our California warehouse, will be shipped out on 2/15/2019 in the order they were placed. Please anticipate delays and consider before ordering if timing is critical to your install.
Compare to our competitors that cost $1599.99 and do not come with the WiFi controller or our spectrum!!
For commercial applications, comes with USA or International plugs. Operates on 110v-240v. We can add custom length power cords if needed. Recommend professional installation, units weigh over 40 pounds each.
So what makes this spectrum so great, besides the great aesthetics it provides?
Simple, where most black boxes like MarsAqua, GalaxyHydro, Reef Radiance, Evergrow and Reef Breeders use a shotgun method approach, loading in as many different diodes as possible, hoping to hit the right wavelengths, we instead, as seen below, hit all of the key photosynthesis points hard. No wasted energy in wavelengths that do not benefit coral growth and color.
The cross point of Chlorophyll A and C is 447nm, that is where Zooxanthallae are most efficient. We hit it very hard. Also note 420nm is where Chlorophyll A peaks and we hit that hard as well. We have more 420nm than any other black box. Also note 420nm is a trigger wavelength that tricks corals into thinking they are in shallower water, resulting in development of more protective pigment "Color". Note we don't hit the 470nm peak of Chlorophyll C as hard, there is a valid reason for this. Chlorophyll C saturates at a lower photon energy, and has a much lower density in most typical corals than Chlorophyll A. This means adding more energy there adds no value after a point. Instead we do something no other black box lights do, we hit the secondary absorption point of the cartenoids present in the Chloroplast hard. The cartenoids absorb the 490nm wavelength and convert the energy into a source the chloroplast can better use. The Cartenoid Peridinin is present in higher concentration than Chlorophyll C as well. We also hit the 660nm peaks of Chlorophyll A&C. Finally we have 395nm True UV, which not only adds to coral flourescence, but development of protective color pigments by again tricking the coral into thinking it's in shallower water. The issue with true UVs though is that the UV actually destroys the lens over time. We have solved this problem by finding a better quality diode with a silica lens instead of plastic. Makes for a little more expensive diode, but it will last more than the 1 year max you get out of a typical plastic lens. For our white channel, we have just enough green and yellow for aesthetics, with the bulk of diodes in the 14K range. We also have 20K diodes, something no other black box has. This provides for a crisp white with hints of blue.
That means our light provides more PUR than any other LED "Cannon" or "Pendant" style commercial light, while helping to provide coral coloration only possible with T5s before.
Same spectrum as our ULTRA light in a powerhouse that can light to a depth of over 15' and effectively grow coral at 72" water depth. Note we do not unclude True UV 395nm diodes that we have in our ULTRA, as the shorter wavelength will not penetrate into deeper water, so it would not be as effective as in typical residential aquariums.
Shipping: All photon torpedoes are made to order and ship factory direct. Please allow 2 weeks for assembly and shipping, then an additional 3-5 days travel to your door. For orders outside the USA, any local VAT or GST will be due at delivery, we have no way to collect at check out.
