Lifetime of a Ray2


Hey Finnex and TPTers! I have had a 24 inch Ray2 (7000K+10,000K) fixture for a good year and a half now. What is the lifetime use of a Ray2? I know that it can last 20,000 hrs or higher but does efficiency of the LEDs go down over time? I am starting a mini Dutch setup and I'm just wondering if it would be beneficial to get another fixture

IME, adding the monsterRay to the RayII has boosted the color depth in new growth. Plants which i have purchased red have also maintained their colors. I've managed to do this in my 20g high surprisingly and started applying this same light combination in a 40g breeder. The tank is coming into its own with ferts and co2. You'll see a notable improvement with a MonsterRay supplementing the color spectrums over a planted tank.
