Peak at 660nm generally means 660nm diodes are present..though seems like they use both red (second largest peak) and deep red..

Finnex finally updated their site and it's on there now. They call it "CRV Series"

Sorry to dredge up a slightly aged thread, but just wanted to express my own frustration over this mess. I bought the new planted+ cc on Amazon last month. Been waiting on that for a while, and I finally noticed enough LEDs going out on my much older Ray model, to justify the purchase. The Amazon listings were confusing; it kept going out of stock, and mainly I didn't want to accidentally buy the older model, and there was no mention of "V2" in the listing. So I even checked the model number on the Finnex site and confirmed the "KL-C" was the V2 I thought I wanted. I happily ordered and received it. Then I set it aside for a bit until I could make time to design and rescape my tank.

Fast forward to today, when I'm ready to get started on that rescape. I had a brief moment of doubt as I unboxed the light, so I just searched the model number, KL-C30A, to make sure I got it right. That's when I found this thread and discovered my misfortune.

Seriously, Finnex. The product listing on the website have changed. The Amazon listings have changed. A month ago, on June 2 when I ordered, I don't recall any mention of KLC and CRV options on Amazon. There was no distinction made that there was a lesser model and a "better" model available. I believed I was ordering the latest and greatest that Finnex had to offer. Granted, I wasn't expecting the greatest LED light known to man, but I did believe I was getting all of the available features that Finnex puts into their lights. I was pumped about that.

Now, even though I think I still have a great customizable light for my planted tank, I can't help but feel a little disappointed that I didn't order what I thought I ordered—and all because of confusing merchandising and a modified Amazon listing.

I haven't turned the thing on yet, and I would send it back, but I'm now a week over the 30 day return period. Oof.

Anyway, that's the end of my rant. I'm glad they have the listings corrected and more clearly distinct (with a product line comparison table) now. I just wish they had fixed their listings before I decided to order. Alas. Back to cleaning my new sand and setting up this new, slightly less red, light.

In my experience, Amazon will very likely swap do an exchange for the model you THOUGHT you had purchased. You'd flag it as "inaccurate website description." You just need to use the chat feature on their support page. They will likely be more apt to do an exchange vs a simple return if you tell them exactly what you told us. Excellent customer service.


And yes, Finnex needs to get it together with their marketing and product line names. (Or lack thereof).

Also, I tend to notice that Amazon's listings, when they show a "newer model available," can be wrong a lot of the time.
