Barrier Reef's 42" NOVA Flare LED Pre-Sale
After months of design and testing we are finally ready to launch our new, custom tuned EverGrow LED fixture. This will be a Barrier Reef exclusive and cannot be purchased anywhere else. We took the NOVA A6 platform, doubled it, and added 430nm epiLED and 440nm Bridgelux LEDs to our already amazing mix of LED chips. We also increased the number of moonlights. We packaged it in a 42" fixture so it will easily fit in a 48" canopy. It has great coverage over a 48"x30" footprint. This light is really for 120 gallon or larger but you can put it on 75/90 gallon tanks. Simply dial down the power. You might be better off with two IT2040 or D2120 for the smaller 48" tanks though. They have more than enough power, will save you on up-front cost, and use less energy.
Our pre-sale special will launch during the Anniversary Sale November 2nd, and run until the end of November. We expect to receive the lights in early January. This light will sell for $849.99 after the pre-sale, but you can reserve yours at $799.99 with pre-payment. For local customers or phone orders we can take 50% deposits. Our website does not allow for partial payments. (Not Online Until Nov. 2)

New for 2014! We designed this fixture and asked EverGrow to build them for us. You will only find this fixture at Barrier Reef Aquariums. This controllable light has been custom tuned by Barrier Reef Aquariums to have a crisp, bright 14K look when both channels are set to 100%. The built-in controller has an LCD touch interface, and allows for dimming in half hour, or one hour intervals. You can program a sunrise, sunset, and moonlight, using the remote, or the touch keys on the unit. The two channels (whites/colors & purples/blues) are all separately programmable. It contains 144 x 3w BridgeLux and epiLED LEDs running at a max power of 360 watts. It includes 36- 12K White, 8- 6500K White, 16-420nm Purple, 4-430nm Purple, 8-440nm Blue, 52- 450nm Royal Blue, 12- 480nm Deep Blue, 4- 520nm Green, and 4- 660nm Deep Red LEDs which have been custom selected to excite as many pigments within your coral as possible, while providing the needed energy for zooxanthellae photosynthesis. It also contains 6- 480nm Blue Moonlights which are on their own programmable channel. 90 degree optics are also utilized to ensure our highest PAR levels capable of growing SPS, while avoiding the "disco-ball" effect. We have also added an aluminum fin heat sink. The fixture measures 42" x 11" x 2.8" and gives great coverage to a 48" x 30" area. Finally, be sure to check out our 2 Year Warranty. The current photo is of an early prototype. The only difference between the final version is that the center gap has been made 3" narrower. We will update the photo as soon as we receive new images.
