CUSTOM LED COMBINATION UPGRADE:
Please be aware that no color combination of LEDs looks "perfect" to everybody. Each of us have different color preferences, and different goals for our aquariums (such as looking great, growing corals fast, focusing on natural coloration or coral iridescence/pop, simulating natural ocean environments, etc) There is no LED combination where "one size/color combination fits all." You must decide what your goals are and choose accordingly.
*13,000K Full Spectrum JMB Special - This is LED combination perfected by Nano-reef.com user JediMasterBen. It is bright, with crisp color with a bluer tone than the 12,000K. The result is better pop (iridescence) from fluorescent corals, as well as boosting the natural color of nonflourescent corals, sponges, coraline algae and macroalgae. This LED combination does not have any of the bad side effects of using green LEDs, and does not look "green". LEDs included in this selection are 9x 4,000K, 9x Lime, 28x Royal Blue, 10x Cool Blue.
*14,000K Super Full Spectrum - This provides you with a proven combination of LEDs to provide Full Spectrum Lighting (Broad Spectrum) to allow your corals to grow up to 4x faster than in the ocean, while not detracting from their natural coloration. This combination emphasizes all yellow, orange, red, green, blue and purple coral colors and iridescence. It has been proven to effectively grow corals in thousands of aquariums worldwide. LEDs included in this selection: 12X 4,000K, 8X Cool Blue, 36X Royal Blue.
*14,000K Super Iridescence Booster - For a premium upgrade at minimal expense, choose the Iridescence Booster upgrade! This upgrade swaps out 4 of the Royal Blue LEDs with 4 Hyper Violet LEDs. It doesn't change the brightness, nor does it make it overwhelmingly purple, it only improves the color and makes iridescence explode out of corals.
*My Own Custom Combination That I Will Decide - upgrade allows you to swap out the standard colored LEDs for any of the other color Luxeon LEDs. Although we recommend the standard configuration, it is difficult to find the perfect combination that every customer finds completely aesthetically pleasing. The standard configuration is a product of 4 years of testing and refinement, with proven growth rates exceeding the ocean, and we sell to large coral farmers world-wide in this particular configuration. If there was something better, then that is what would be offered as the new standard kit. The challenge has always been balancing aesthetics with maximum coral growth rates, and there is no perfect solution since every customer has different expectations. This upgrade allows you to select the combination you believe will be best for your aquarium. This upgrade allows you to select the exact color combination you believe will be best for your aquarium.
