Coral Box Moon Led

Hi all.

I am wanting a nano led for my Aqua 40 and I have come across this one,which is a Coral box moon LED

I really can't find that much information on it so does anybody have one or know anything about it?

Also I want to keep mostly Sps.

Not had one but a quick search and the the consensus seems pretty good they're wi fi controllable most have said great for lps and some have had success with sps although it would be a risk with the more trickier sps

Thank you for that Bob,maybe if I place the Sps at the very top you may get away with the moon led?

Also do you know if the maxspec razor fits on the Aqua 40 nano tank?

Different SPS require different amounts of light. As long as your flow is strong and there is a decent amount of light they should be fine.
I would always say start the intensity low and slowly build it up. The corals will lose colour (Brown out) with too little light but will colour back up when the lighting is tweeked.
If you burn your corals there is a much less chance of them recovering.

Thanks for your input Dave,that's the thing is the moon led sufficient enough for Sps I know the unit users cree LED so on paper it should be good enough,but I could do with some more information regarding the moon led.


Thanks Dan

Sorry Dan I can not answer that, to be honest I wouldn't risk it with SPS as some are far more demanding than others. After a quick browse of the net I can not find any articles saying yes or no.
I run 3 Radion XR30 pros over my reefer 525XL on 45% and have massive growth and great colours- My advise Radions all the way expensive but worth it.

Looking on fish streets page they have a post about it apparently it uses 5w Crees although it doesn't give details of colours so considering most LEDs use 3w should have quite a good output I've googled it and there's quite a bit about it with videos

Magic Bob,well 5w output is not bad at all so I think I may give them ago also I will start with montipora ect at the top and then try some acropora if the montipora look ok .

Thanks dan
