Focused Lumen Output
While a couple of "NOTCHES" below the AquaRay AquaBeam and GroBeam line of, these are an excellent inexpensive choice for a planted Hexagon Aquarium or Marine Refugiums
As with any well made/premium LED light fixture, these have heavy cooling fins and weigh more that even a common "screw in" CFL (1 lb.- 12 oz.)

LED LIGHTING SUGGESTIONS (for LEDs sold on this page)
For those who like excellent full feature LED lights, with built in controllers that are ready to go out of the box, this may be the LED light for you!
While definitely not a low end or inexpensive LED Reef Aquarium Light, this LED fixture provides many of the bells and whistles many like, albeit without PWM technology and with lower PUR values than the "best of the best" AquaRay AquaBeam or GroBeam line of LED lights.
When compared apples to apples to comparable full feature LEDs; the ZetLight is clearly the better choice over the similar EcoTech, Aqua Illuminations, and Maxspect LED Lights. Definitely our best LED on this page!
Reference this article for more as to what determines a better aquarium light:
Aquarium Lighting; Facts & Information
TMC LED Light Strips
These are an excellent source of GOOD supplemental aquarium lighting and can actually be used as a compliment to TMC ultra premium AquaRay line of lights, as well as any other light system (or even by themselves for certain applications).
The red strips make an excellent compliment to AquaRay GroBeam or AquaBar 500 LED Lights to provide the added red light plant Photosynthetic Chlorophyll synthesis (phase 3 of PAR)
An excellent 2nd choice for planted freshwater aquarium keepers. While not the best patented Cree emitters used in the GroBeam LEDs, these provide an alternative to the "low end" Fluval and Finnex aquarium LED lights for those on budget, but desiring a simple out of the box plug and go LED light, that also has quality circuitry and a better warranty.
PAR 38 LED
The 2nd generation PAR38 LEDs we sell (all PAR38s currently available are 2nd generation or older) is capable for some basic reef applications (softies, etc.) and most high light planted aquarium or hydroponics applications.
As a generalization, this PAR 38 requires .7 to .8 watt per gallon for high light planted aquariums and 1 watt per gallon for Basic Reef Aquariums (soft corals and most anemones, NOT sps corals, maxima clams, etc; for these the AquaRay LEDs are recommended)
The PAR 38 is focused LED that is excellent for hexagon aquariums or direct placement over a potted plant.
The light spread is 8" by 8" at 12" from the aquarium; so as an example, Two PAR 38 LEDs should easily work for a planted 30 Gallon Hexagon Aquarium.
