Hello, from personal experience- generally speaking, on a large tank that is over 18 inches deep- usually not. However, on your 55 gallon, it depends upon where the anenome is located, if high in the tank - maybe.

Anenomes require a great amount of light to thrive, more often then not, more then most coral species require.

However, multiple units could work quite well.

I run with a combination of halides and the Marineland 48-60" LED fixture over my 165 gallon reef tank (32 inches deep) and it works very very well. I have 3 BBT's and a very large Carpet anenome. It also adds a lot of shimmer to the tank, which I like, and so do my critters. It also allows me to gradually ramp up the light intensity ( I use a Digital Aquatics aquarium controller), this also has allowed me to cut the halide use to nearly half of what it was before the addition of the LED fixture. My present halides are 3 x 150, which previously I had to use 2x 400 watt hallides with four 54 watt T-5's - so:

Previous lighting: 1016 watts and lots of heat.

Present lighting: 520 watts that is on a day/lunar cycle and actually lights the tank better due to better light spread.

This equates to no chiller required now, and less power consumed- there by a substantial savings in energy consumed.

Hope this helps.

Question

Reef Capable LED lighting system

I have had the marineland reef light for a few months now in my planted fish tank. I can't seem to grow any plants with the light. I have a 60 gallon fish tank with a 48 to 60 inch light. The plants I am trying to grow is Java Ferns and Amazon Sword. I tried having the light on for 8 hours a day but the plants turned yellow and started dying. I took the dying plants out last week and put new ones in. I am going to try 12 hours per day of light. Do you know why I am not having success with plants?

A few things come to mind- first water quality- have you tested your aquariums water?

Secondly, plants require a different light specturm then most aquatic critters, Adding a red LED light source (or a t5 bulb(s) of the correct color spectrum should really help.

As well, 12 hrs should be about right- the goal is to mimic the plant (or critters) natural enviroment as closely as possible- read up on what your particular aquariums environental requirements are- this should greatly help you with a sucessful system.

The Reef Capable LED's are not specifically made to grow plants. They can however be used for some low light plants. We also are about to launch an Aquatic Plant LED specifically for plants. They should be available in store in the May/June timeframe.

Question

Marineland Reef Capable LED Lighting System 36-48-Inch for 72 Inch long tank

I have a 72 inch long salt water reef tank. Understanding that the 36 inch LED system is expandable to 48 inches, does the 36-48 inch come with hardware to connect two together to cover the total 72 inches? Will they have to operate independent switches or can they be connected to run on one switch?
Also, I primarily have soft corals in my tank, but would like to add harder corals such as trumpets and brains. Would two 36 inch LED systems be enough correct lighting to sustain them?

Hello, yes these can be connected together - sort of:

If you look at the ends of each fixture you will notice that they use a metal wire that acts as the stand for the light fixture, you can do either one of two things:

pull the stands out of the light- they are simple heavy gage coated wire.

cut one of your existing stands to 4- 6 inches of straight wire (twice for two straight pieces) then insert these into each hole in the fixture- there by connecting them togther. Or, alternatively you can buy the same diameter wire in the length I stated above and do the same thing. (then you do not need to cut anything).

mind you this is still two LED light fixtures - just simply joined together. you will still have two switches - ect.

BTW, Marineland should sell these as a kit (hint hint :) ) As long as I get credit for the idea.

I do not know if this would void any warranty but it works very well.

Hello,

No, you cannot connect them together as you are thinking. Also, they each operate independently via their own switch. We are not sure regarding your question about the hard corals, as we do not know your tank's height, but we recommend one fixture for every 12" of height, so you would most likely need four fixtures, unless the tank is very shallow.

Is this our tank? I'm not sure of the dimensions of your tank but given that you have 48inches for the light, I would recommend our 48-60in light to ensure complete coverage. That is part number 33003.

Question

recommendation and clarification

So i have a 46gal bowfront. It is 3ft across . Depth is about 19-20inches and 17inches at the widest portion. I aso have a plastic division at the top of the tank (probably about 2-3inches wide).
1. would you recommend 2 18" or just 1 36".
2. would 1 36" or 2 18" be enough for my tank size? (i plan to keep softies, maybe some sps)
3. so with the new timer, i can do a dusk dawn effect? Or is it just an external timer built into the system.

thank you

I would recommend that you double check the spectral graph for the Reef LED's just to make sure that you are getting adequate light for your set up. Depending on that, you could go a couple of different ways. You could use (2) 48-60 in lights or (4) 24-36"in lights. I'll send you the graphs separately via e-mail. If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Our smallest Reef Capable LED measures 18-24" so it looks like it may hang over that tank a little bit. I would refer to our PAX/LUX chart to make sure the output is suitable for your needs in that tank. I will send that to you seperately via e-mail for your reference.

Question

Retrofit a Biocube?

I have an Oceanic 29 gal. Biocube and would like to upgrade its lighting to LED's. The lens over the existing lights is exactly 18" long. I would think I could just take out the flourescents and put in the 18"-24" reef capable LED light without the legs, drilling a hole in the side of the lens for the cord. I am concerned about the length of the light strip. If it is exactly 18", it probably won't fit as the cord would also take up some room.
