Interesting thread, Is it a better combo with dual 7k ray2 and monsterRay or the new fugeRay Planted+ with the dual 7k ray2?
anyone got pictures for comparison?
Better is a relative to many things, budgets, goals of the scaper, type of plants kept, etc... Photos wouldn't prove any more useful than having the actual lighting specs explained since a majority of folks use the "auto" setting on their cameras or rely on camera phones.
In all types of planted aquarium lighting, not exclusive to LEDs, a balance covering the full spectrum will always be a safe bet to plan for.
If one were to pair the RAY II with Planted+, there would be an abundance of blue light with little red in ratio. That would provide a very high par but the lighting would not be balanced. Hence the trend in introducing red and full spectrum LEDs in the marketplace. There's plenty of info on these lamps if you take the time to google online.
A viable alternative would be pairing two Planted+ LEDs which may produce more more light PAR than the RAY II and MonsterRay combination.
I only have a single Planted+ fixture so this is merely a hypothesis. Would love to get feedback from anyone that has two Planted+ fixtures.
