AquaBeam 1000 HD Ultra Units Now In Stock!

After teasing customers and hobbyists with our demo units at the Reef-A-Palooza and IMAC shows earlier this year, the production models of the AquaBeam 1000 HD Ultra units have finally arrived. These great little lights pack a big punch and are a great option for lighting nano tanks or to use as a spot light in conjunction with supplemental lighting from AquaBeam 500 strips. We have tested these units in house using a PAR meter and have found that the output is quite comparable to a 150W metal halide, making them ideal for mixed reefs with hard and soft coral.

For those who are unaware of the benefits of LED's, you should know that they are a great alternative to conventional lighting and are far more efficient than any other lighting system on the market. While the up-front cost may be somewhat greater than a complete metal halide or fluorescent lighting system, after 5-10 years of changing the light bulbs and the cost of electricity (which only seems to be increasing), the other systems will end up costing far more. For the AquaBeam 1000 HD Ultra units, the LED's offer a minimum of 50,000 hours of lamp life. In addition, you can expect to have substantially lower running costs and very little maintenance costs...if any...over the same time period. In the unlikely event that a problem arises, the unit is guaranteed for 5 years!
