Matsnork So I thought this thread needed a bump since info on this fixture is hard to find and its been on the market for about a year now.

Is this light the beez kneez?

pwolfe I shot an email to the guys at coralvue to see when the 8000k version will be available in the states.

They are expecting to see it stateside around the 2nd to 3rd week of January.

SpecialEffect I went out and baught it. I'm in love lol.
I played with the settings and they go,

Remmeber from the start point to the end point it slowly rises to that %..

8am - 2pm: 1-5% both channels

2pm - 4pm: 5-50% both channels

4pm - 7pm: 50-100% both channels

7pm-10pm: 100-100% both channels

10pm-1130pm: 100-1% channel b (blue/warm light aka moon light)

1130-8am: 1%

Basically i have a "true" light period of 9 hours.

The second i had the settings right it was at the 100% setting and instantly i had pearling going on everywhere... first time this has happened!

Better pictures when i have access to a dslr!
These pictures dont even nearly show you how nice and alive these plants look now. its insane.

Where in canada did you find one? Any online sites?
I searched around and there ~530$... All over montreal is like that. I even spoke to the distributor (he guided me to find someone with the 8000k... Wasent hard since 10000k isnt sold in canada) prices are all the same sadly...
Even the 8000k model is used for corals? Because they boast it for planted tanks



Thats the chart for the 8000k model

TexasCichlid I will watch your journal. That's a nice write-up. That's a heck of a lot of PAR.

My 12g is a month old and I've used one of their 36" fixtures from start up. I would post my beginning photos, but I've rescaped the tank since then, so the comparison wouldn't be accurate. That being said, my 30-C is a week old now and running one of their 12" fixtures if you would like to keep track of growth.

As another poster said you don't need all the blue leds you have listed.
Configured right you can achieve very good PAR and a Coloring Rendering Index of 98. Sunlight = 100 See this thread http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=198196

TexasCichlid What are you wanting to grow that requires so much light? This a 48gallon farm tank with some sort of unusual plant that needs it?

SpecialEffect Jusy to confirm my LFS actualy
Has the 8000k setting... Should i get the 120 or the 160? Price difference of ~100$... I was thinking 160W and then just dimming it.
