That would be great, as the 90-H is not very common.

It was designed to provide high lighting for reef applications and it seems like the 8,000k was an afterthought. Had they designed this light specifically for planted tanks I believe they would have used wider lenses. Spectrum looks great though and should be a nice addition to planted tank lighting options.

correct. When I spoke to Jeremy about this, the conversation had been prefaced on the fact that I have to mount my light on the tank which is what led to the comment about the tight beam. Hanging this fixture will certainly provide more coverage, and the cree emmitters put out plenty of light. Even at 18" above the tank Im sure its got more than enough output. I doubt that anyone using this light for a planted application will need to run them at 100%.

Imi Statue I don't believe they are out yet, but you can write these guys and have them tell you.

Green_Flash Coralvue said they are getting them in early January.

AFAIK Coralvue is the NA distributor for Maxspect.

cobra Don't see any of the 8000k units there.

The 10000 and 16000k units can be found all over.
