Blue Moon Aquatics has recently released three new LED fixtures, simply called the 90W LED, 300W LED, and the 600W LED fixtures. Each sports a massive array of LED bulbs as well as a sleek look and plenty of cooling fans. Read below for all of the technical specifications for each model as well as a description from Blue Moon Aquatics.

Here’s a snippet from Blue Moon’s website:

A fascinating “powerful” light that enhances the fluorescent dyes, growth and colors of corals, clams and invertebrates. It creates an intensive natural shimmering effect throughout the entire tank.

The color temperature and spectrum of the 15,000K 90W LED fixture with its high lumen output replicates the intensity of the sun around a shallow coral reef. It combines its spectrum with a 460nm actinic range and has been created to achieve the blue chlorophyll absorption for zooxanthellae symbiosis.

Scientifically created especially for aquatic use with an excellent light spectrum designed for marine aquariums

Most invertebrates and corals kept in a marine tank originate from shallow waters. Up to 10 ft depth nearly the entire “visible”color spectrum of light is evenly spread.

A blue accenting illumination combined with a full spectrum light of a 15,000K temperature bears therefore a desirable lighting to keep and grow corals.

To create such light the benefits of LED lighting come especially handy: While traditional lighting has often several peaks across the entire color spectrum,the spectrum created by LED lights can be set exactly to the desired points.

Looking at the color spectrum of the Blue Moon Aquatics fixture the uniform curve shows besides the desired increase of the actinic range an evenly spread natural spectrum curve with a reduced red spectral range to ensure a remarkable growth of all corals and invertebrates with endosymbiotic algea.

Features:

  • Low energy costs because of lower consumption wattage caused by the LED efficency
  • Extremely durable with a 50,000 hour lifetime
  • Notable higher light output – compared to traditional flurescent tubes
  • Low operating temperature – never worry again about heating issues The BMA LED fixture comes with three cooling fans that start quietly when operated. They remove the “heat” from the LED heat sink to ensure a long lifetime of each single LED.
  • Best possible eco balance: long lifetime without mercury

  • The LED fixture looks fantastic but unfortunately I don't have an aquarium.

  • want to know

    does LED work for soft and hard corals, or wouold MH still work better? Seems like wattage is comperable

    • a lot of people have kept hard corals under led lighting just fine. they put out quite a bit of light and new technology is making them more and more suitable for reef tanks.

  • Now the latest improvement has, 2 switches to control the blue and white separately to have the effect like sunrise, sun down. It is more helpful.
