Hi Gang

So im onto the last part of my new build then I can finally stock my tank. Im looking at picking up the maxspect Razor 300w 16000k 44 inch light for my 90GAL. Any thoughts on LED lights from what I can see these are great. To bad no one has them in stock, I have found them for 825 at Pisces but they are all sold out.

did you try reef wonderland or golds? Golds carry's maxspect lights now , they might not have them in stock but they can order stuff pretty quickly .
As for the light itself I have the 3 pod 16K fixture for over a year now , really have had no issues with the fixture . There is a slight amount of disco effect , does not bother me . Also bought a kessil A350 I much prefer the kessil looks wise and it has crazy shimmer.

Got mine from Concepts Aquarium and they are awesome. The programming is straight forward. I would recommend getting the lens upgrade to get rid of the disco effect and it does add to the coverage.

I haven't heard of the lens upgrade? Concept can't price match Pisces :(

Good to hear. Ask Concepts for the lens upgrade.

Hi all, I am considering getting the Maxspect 300W 10K. I am curious about the lens upgrade that I am reading about on this post.

Can I get some details, including where the upgrade is available? Thanks

I am looking at the 10k vs 16k as I am afraid that the 16k will be a little too blue.
