So i received my Aquarium Fish International magazine for may 2012 today (why its always dated 2 months ahead i dont know) and I sit down after a long day of work and turn the first page and
"We Made the Sun Obsolete.... Marineland's Aquatic Plant LED Light". In my mind I'm thinking yessssss finally! I'm in the process of changing most of my bulbs in my house to LED lighting and switched one of my two tanks to LED (my 29 gallon that does not have high demand plants). My other tank (75 gallon, more light demanding plants) I'm currently using t5-ho bulbs and I always wanted to switch over to LED to save even more electricity.
Now finally it looks like i can without having to piece together my own fixture. I quickly went online to look for places that sell the new LED aquarium plant light but it looks like it is still new so did not find any information on them yet around the web.
Everything went back to Marineland's website... Marineland's website for the plant LED
looks like they have:
1W 6,500K LEDS
I can't wait for this fixture to go mainstream, I'm assuming it will be pretty expensive, especially considering it has a timer system built in for day and lunar lights... and as you know, manufacturers tend to skyrocket the prices when they include that feature.
Has anyone seen these around yet? Or have any thoughts on how much it would range in price?
