    This looks super sexy. Its pretty cheap too with the 3 feet model at US$200? http://dev.maxspect.com/en/glaive#spec


    What do you guys think of the spectrum and the blue, green red leds? Are they useful for us freshwater folks?

    Worked for me. I like that it has a large peek into the red spectrum.

    Would I be right to say that with blue at 50%, the spectrum would almost look great? There is par ratings on their web site as well. Would not 80-120 par be considered high? Thats at 30cm though. So would likely be a little lesser in a typical tank.

    If each channel is independently controllable there is no reason you couldn't get the exact color you were looking for. Those par readings may have been taken with out any water and you will see a substantial decline in those numbers at the same distance with water.

    I was wondering the same thing about the par ratings.
