JBJ LED 28-Gallon Nano Cube

I’ve had the distinct privilege of getting to play with the brand new JBJ LED Nano Cube aquarium this weekend, and I must say that I was quite impressed with the new lighting scheme. The aquarium is based on the standard 28-gallon JBJ Nano Cube, with the only real change being the lights. The hood is well ventilated and the lights put out a nice mix of blue and white color. The filtration scheme is the same as in the JBJ 28-gallon metal halide system, and still includes the Ocean Pulse wavemaker and removable media tray for using carbon or other media.

This new Nano Cube features twenty-five 3 watt 14K LEDs for daytime viewing, four 3 watt actinic/466nm LEDs for dawn and dusk effects, and two 1 watt moon light LEDs. The total wattage for the lighting system is 89 watts and the bulbs have a lifespan of about 50,000 hours. And according to JBJ, the 89-watt high-intensity LED system provides comparable PAR output to that of their 150 watt HQI canopy system that adorns other 28-gallon Nano Cubes, which is quite impressive. And don’t forget, with LED lighting you can get the same shimmer effect that you would with metal halides.

    Thanks for the post. I want one of these but the price is way up there!

  • i've seen them for as low as $600 locally. a bit steep, but still pretty cool. not to mention more volume and about $900 cheaper than an elos mini. though it's really hard to compare the two.
