AquaBeam Ultima 1500 NP

Nature Perfect

This light was designed for diffused and evenly spread light, with the perfect coloration and distribution while still being strong enough for Soft Coral and Large Polyp Stony Coral aquariums. A separate Nature Perfect blue channel makes for more realistic twilight & moonlight modes, enhancing the fluorewcence of your corals throughout the day! The 1500 Ultima NP is powered by 6 of the latest CREE XT-E PowerLED's running at Fiji Blue and 'Ocean White'. These are complemented by 4 Osram Olson NP blue LEDs. What is most impressive about these LED's is the improvement in their efficiency. These have the same revolutionary passively cooled design that is featured on the rest of the AquaBeam line, meaning hearing those cooling fans is a thing of the past.

Mounting the 1500 Ultima NP is effortless using the various options available in the TMC Modular Mounting System. As with TMC's other LED lighting products the 1500 Ultima NP provides over 50,000 hours of light and comes with a 5 year guarantee. Perhaps the strongest selling point to these units is their efficiency as they have a much smaller energy cost than alternative lighting solutions such as Metal Halide's, Compact Fluorescent (PC), and even T5 lighting. A great way to help reduce your carbon footprint!
