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.

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

The maxspect will provide a TON of light and most of it probably not in the right spectrum, it's meant for growing coral.

Also, they should retail for less than $500 Canadian based on the last time I saw one locally, might want to look around before committing to buy it if you are dead set on getting this light.

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

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.

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.

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?
