Questions & Answers for Marineland Sophisticated 24 Hour Lighting System

Question

60" Marineland Pro Lighting System

I inserted the two 150 watt 14,000k Metal Halide bulbs with the flat ends with one edge aiming up and the other edge aiming down.

Is this the correct method?

They can only be inserted in the fixture with the bulb nipple facing down or facing up according to the flat ends of these type of bulbs. Is this true?

The lamps do have a nipple, and the nipple will either face directly up or directly down. Either will work and either is acceptable.

I'm pretty sure the 24 Hour Lighting System won't fit within the hood of the Eclipse 3 regardless of what you remove. Also, you would need to be careful of heat issues with the HID bulbs in that fixture. You are probably better off to just replace the hood altogether and just use that light over a glass canopy with a hang on the back filter or canister filter. Please let me know if I can help with anything else.

Question

metal halide light wavelengths

I am interested in learning what wavelength your metal halides put out in nanometers. The Truvu tank I have is made out of acrylic and Truvu has told me that metal halides are fine to use with it as long as the wavelength is above a certain nanometer.

Thanks.

Question

Will there be any upgrades to the Lighting controller?

1. I would like it to be back lit.
2. I would like to double the amount of daily cycles for the LEDs and T5's
3. I would like to have the 4 T5's split into banks. for two outermost 420nm and two inner most 460nm. I realize this would probably require a transformer mod but first the controller. Something to think about.

I love the Lightning system. - My Wife says she is going to hang it over my casket during my calling hours. LOL But it is worth the expense.

Paperwork that came with the system does not specify what the LED spectrum is. I did find that it is a 1watt moonlight. If I can order from you please let me know cost or where else I can get them from. This lighting system has only been in use for 8months.

Hello,
The legs on the sophisticated lighting systems do not expand beyond the length of the light. They are cosiderably heavier than our other lighting systems and need the support directly underneath the fixture. You can, however, purchase the light hanging system to suspend the fixture over the aquarium. It is item ML90464 and can be ordered online or through a local Marineland dealer.

Hello, and thank you for your interest in our product! If you are looking at the Sophisticated 24-Hour Lighting System, this light contains high intensity HQI lamps, HO T5 actinic lamps, and LED lights to replicate the moon light cycle. This light has the proper amount of lumens, PAR and LUX to provide vital energy to photosynthetic corals and anemones, and is ideal for reef tanks that require high lighting conditions. The actinic blue lamps recreate conditions found in deep water and provide the light necessary for photosynthetic corals in reef tanks.
