Question

The new Accent or Hidden LED systems - which addition would be best to promote plant growth?

A year ago I purchased your 37 gallon aquarium with the standard LED lighting, and have been very pleased with the setup. Java Moss & Fern, Annubius, some Crypts and Valisneria grow fine in the tank, but slowly. I am very interested to see the new hidden LED and LED accent systems. I would like to add one of them to my tank to boost plant growth - can you tell me which would be the better option? I have read the technical specs, but don't know how to tell.

One point of clarification. If you are adding either the Hidden or Accent lighting systems to an aquarium with exisiting lighting they will do a great job of promoting growth and showcasing the live plants. The Accent line was specifically designed to help "bump" up the blue or red light in an aquarium to help with live plant growth and coloration. I say give the red Accent light a try. It really makes plants grow fast and look lush.

We actually wouldn't recommend either of those lights for live plants. Of our current offerings you can use either the Double Bright or Reef Capable LED's for low light plants.

We also have an Aquatic Plant LED which will be in stores in the May/June timeframe. This is our offering for live plants. I will send to the charts for both lights so you can make sure that you choose the right light for your needs.

Question

Hidden LED Lighting Sysyem

I have a 15 gallon tank that I want to add the 17" Hidden LED Lighting system to. The design is appealing to me since I can mount it inside the top edge of the tank enabling me to view the fish from above since there is no light fixture in the way.
I have one concern, I read a review that stated this light promotes increased algae growth, is this true? Right now I have a plenty of natural light and a florescent tube light and I have no issues with algae.

This particular light is a 6500 Kelvin, 460 nm light so it is intended for a supplemental light in a freshwater planted or saltwater tank with live rock and some coral. If you do not have such a set up, then yes, you could get algae as the light would be a brighter light than what a fish only, freshwater tank requires. By the way, algae's main cause is organic matter such as excess feeding and lack of vacuuming.

Question

I have your 60 gallon cube aquarium pre-drilled with overflow

My question is what lighting, from marineland, can I use in this aquarium to be able to grow all types of coral? It's 24" deep and I would like to grow whatever I choose and need to know if your new reef capable lighting 24" would be sufficient for PAR and LUX towards the bottom of the tank in respect to coral. Also, do values of PAR and LUX increase if you use more than one light system? For example if I bought two Reef Capable light systems from Marineland in the 24" model.

Thank you for your help in answering my question. I have seen the par and lux values on your boxes and on this site. So you recommend a light for each 12" of tank water. So does that confirm that you can increase the par/lux at different depths by adding two lights together. For example, one Marineland Reef Capable light system 24" is under 60 par at 24 inches, and two would increase the par/lux to 120? I have read that a good target for par is 100 on the sandbed to cover all types of coral, putting the shrooms, zoas lower and the acropora and sps higher. I am trying to figure this all out. Its getting confusing. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

It's well known that we recommend our Reef Capable lights for soft corals, mushrooms, polyps, etc. For hard, stony corals, it depends on the species and their PAR/Lux needs. We have a chart on our site, and on our packaging, giving the PAR/Lux values at different depths. It is up to the consumer to determine what their particular coral needs and whether it will receive enough light in their tank, where they wish to place it, under our light.

We recommend one light for ever 12" of depth to provide the proper ratings.

The power switch is located wherever you want to put it, it has a suction cup on the bottom of it and a long wire that connects both to the light itself and to the ac adapter to power the lights.

Question

Can the hidden LED lights connect to each other ?

I plan to get a 75 gal tank that is 21 h x 18 deep x 48 long. I would assume I would need 4 - 21 " lights. Can these connect to each other at all or would I need to have 4 outlets near by for power?

Two 21" units would be probably be plenty!...that's what I have on my 55g and that's what I recommend you start with...you could always add a third...to power them "together" just plug them into one power strip (OR better yet, a timer operated power strip). Cheers!

No, they do not connect together. Depending on what type of tank you are setting up (fish, planted, salt, etc), two would suffice. These lights are extremely bright with 6500 Kelvin and 460 nm ratings. So I would only recommend more lights if you are planning on keeping difficult plants or corals.

Question

Are you going to offer this new LED lighting system in an aquarium starter kit?

A pre-drilled 55gallon aquarium with a C-220 canister filter and this lighting system would be incredible. All the equipment and wires could be out of sight hidden in the stand giving the aquarium a clean and sophisticated look. Fluval offers at least 3 aquarium packages like that. But that is settling for mediocre and not the best. We have a 29gallon and a 55 gallon aquarium. I am looking forward to purchasing another aquarium in the next few months that is at least 55-75 gallons. A kit such as this would be next to impossible to pass up.

It depends on the size of your aquarium and where you place the light in relation to your filter. The beauty of these new systems is that allow you to place the light anywhere in or around your aquarium. I personally prefer attaching the light in the front of the aquarium and letting the light shine from front to back. There are several mounting options so it will work well with a power filter.

Question

could this LED fit across an open span of tank, rather than be installed in the frame?

LOVE the idea of this LED light--I've been fruitlessly searching for a brighter 16" fluorescent tube for the hood of my 20 gallon planted hexagon. I've been thinking I'd have to shine a growlight through the side of the tank, but a light like this new LED would be a much better option. However, the LED is too long to be installed in the frame at the top of a panel of my hexagon tank. But if I spanned the LED across the open water of the middle of the top of the tank, it would fit, though falling slightly short of each end touching the upper frame of a panel. I think I could cobble something up to get the LED to touch the frame at either end. SO: I am curious if this LED's case is stiff enough to span open water and hold up to the current created by my penguin 150-- or perhaps the LED could be affixed to the underside of my hexagon's hood?
thanks in advance for your advice!

The bracket that holds the LED is rigid and I think you will have success with your method of attaching this system. It also comes with suction cups so you can attach this to the inside wall of most aquariums and the light is fully submersible. Let us know how it works!
