Vertex Aquaristik is releasing a big brother to their Illumina 200, the Illumina 260. There isn’t much information available on this new Illumina 260, but it is confirmed that the light will feature Cree LEDs and is 30% brighter than the older 200 model. If the 260 shares any similarities with the 2oo, it will probably also feature an on-board controller which will allow hobbyists to create many different dawn to dusk effects and even weather simulations. Additionally, the Illumina 260 will most likely come in a wide variety of sizes from 1′ to 6′. There is currently no official price or power consumption information on these models, as Vertex only announced the light a week ago, but as information comes to light, we’ll be sure to update.
