a separate moonlight switch is certainly an appeal in one fixture.

Any progress on this Lowe? Going to be upgrading my 3g to a schuber 6 in the near future, but led lighting options are tough to come by in this size. I would love to see a 36" version as well.

Surely. Sizing and models are as follows:

Ray 2 - Dual Beam High Output LED:
(end of March)
60cm: 7000k+10000k Combo | Actinic Blue
45cm: 7000k+10000k Combo
40cm: 7000k+10000k Combo

(tbd)
60cm: 10000k+Actinic Blue
45cm: 10000k+Actinic Blue
40cm: 10000k+Actinic Blue

Fuge Ray - LEDs +Moonlight
(end of March)
10": 10000k +moonlights

(tbd)
12": 10000k +moonlights




Picture where you can see the difference between the Ray 2 High Output LEDs and the FugeRay which includes moonlights.




As far as specs go. A quick test with the Par meter over the 4 Gallon Schuber Wright (about 10" high all the way down to the bare bottom) produced a reading of:

All models will have a degree spread of 120
12" FugeRay Sample: 38-42 μmol/m2/s at base
12" Ray 2 Sample: 92-102 μmol/m2/s at base

Sweet! Thanks for the response. A couple more questions for you. I personally like low light/low tech setups. Since the fuge par values fit my needs better, will the 12" fuge have enough spread for the Schuber 6? Next, two power cords for 10k and moonlights? Once these hit the market, we'll have to add them to the LED compendium thread.

HI. I can take a picture of it on a Schuber 6 for you when I have time. Spread should be no problem as the degrees are 120. There will only be 1 powercord so on a timer, you would have to manual switch it if you only wanted just the moonlights on.

The one on the breeder box is the fugeray. The bigger fixture (2" bigger) is pictured above.

If it is a standard 2ft tank, then yes, the 60cm will fit perfectly for you.

Sexy stuff. My brother just picked up one of the Finnex 4g curved glass tanks. Very nice construction at a great price. Can't wait to move so I can have a dedicated fish room.

Thanks! If he has any questions about the 4g let me know. Here's a pic of the Ray II on a marine aquarium:

Also, one of our smaller models we developed to test floating over our breeder/refugium

Oh man the 30 cm and the smaller light with High output would be ideal! I tend to have all high light pico/nano tanks so I can grow HC, downo,i and erios. Please make these soon! No one has these on the market yet.

I like that you ask what the buyer wants. I realize this may be too late, but I'll say it anyways.
I'd like white moonlights with a built-in photo-cell in the fixture that automatically turns on when it's dark or when the main lights go off. It eliminates the need for a physical switch/separate timer.

I enjoy my moonlights, but hardly ever get around to all the tanks to switch them on.
