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.
*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: 20X 4,000K, 10X Cool Blue, 40X Royal Blue.
*13,000K Full Specturm 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 nonfluorescent 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 4x 4,000K, 4x Lime, 14x Royal Blue, 6x Cool
Own Custom Combination That I Will Decide upgrade allows you to swap out the standard colored LEDs
for any of the other color Luxeon ES 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.
When adding the upgrade "Plug-and-Play Completed System!," the item "Thermal Adhesive, thermal paste, #6
Screws" will be deducted from the included item list (because we
used it to mount the LEDs to the heatsink) additionally, other items may
be consumed and the remaining portion will not be sent in the package.
Length tolerances of heat sinks are ± 0.5" and 6” for wire and
expandable wire sleeve products. Other items will be added to the kit when
selecting the “Plug-and-Play Completed System!” option -such as interconnecting plugs.
