It's user feedback like this makes it all worthwhile to us

That is disappointing to hear that there won't be any realistic way to make it backwards compatible.

That's the reason I have 7 Current Plus+, just to replace 2 CoraLife CF / t5 fixtures and still have the plants looking 'natural' to my eyes. I can get the PAR and coverage with multiple fixtures (grrr), but not the spectrum.

Energy savings? Cool 'useful' effects? Just look at the $$ it cost me to get on the affordable LED bandwagon.

Will the new fixture be able to provide High light to those of us with deeper (24 inch +) aquariums? I love my Ray 2, but have to buy multiple fixtures to get high light - and that's never fun

I second Veritas on that, all the gimmicks are nice but if you can achieve nice par for deeper tanks that be great.

+2 for that. I have the Ray2 over my 55 and ordered a second LED from a competitor with more features and better spectrum as my second fixture to provide high light. The Ray2 turns off a little before the other fixture runs a 15 minute sunset cycle...

One of the fixtures is currently putting out about 20-25% more PAR at the moment. We have a handful of fixtures with many various features we plan on introducing to you guys.

The strongest fixture we're probably going to go with a blend of 4000k, 6500k, Amber, and true 660nm red LEDs. I'll post pics on a tank once I have it available. Suggestions?

I've upgraded from Quad T5HO to 3 Finnex LEDs this week, and I only have one suggestion.

the plastic leg mounts aren't wide enough to fit around my tank, is there a way to get bigger ones?

I would also like to see if there is a chance to get legs that mount 3-6" above the tank

Hey there, the inner most portion of the leg is removable. Give it a try and let me know.
