I just sent them an email asking, we'll see if I get a response. From my past experience using an 18", the legs for the light were rated "up to 20", and it just barely fit, but was real wobbly and I was always worried it would slip and fall into the tank.

If you have a sheet of glass over the tank, it won't be an issue.

I am wondering if the 16 inch will fit my 15 1/2 inch tank??? If the legs are adjustable I am assuming it would.
I am talking about the Ray II Ultra Slim High Output 16 inch DD one with 7,000K/10,000K

The small ones are only 4-5 watts, is that enough for a planted tank?

shawndoc
03-29-2012, 09:48 AM
From Finnex:

You can safely extend the legs out approximately 1" on each side. So if it's exactly 20" across, you should be fine.

shawndoc
03-29-2012, 10:05 AM
Unfortunately, wattage doesn't tell you anything about LED light output, its only useful for comparing fixtures using the same LEDs. Different LED manufacturers will output different amounts of light at the same wattage.

Luckily, Finnex was nice enough to list PAR value on the small one:
12" FugeRay: 38-42 μmol/m2/s at base 10" deep

So the PAR value tells you the actual light output, and you should be able to google the plants you want to grow and see what PAR value those plants need.

I am now thinking about ordering on my own because shipping is only $7 UPS ground for two of the smaller fixtures and $5 for the 24".

daobn24
03-29-2012, 12:45 PM
I was thinking that but someone mentioned that it'll only cost $5 for shipping. I figured it'll cost the same or even more to arrange pick up. Unless we have a large order maybe we can get a price break from Finnex? I'm in for 1 fixture

According to this link:
http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/lighting/160396-led-lighting-compendium.html


Values between 10-30 are considered low light.
Values between 30-80 are considered medium light.
Values between 80-120 are considered high light.
Keep in mind that these values are what is currently accepted by the community as accurate, and aren't set in stone

So the 12" would be considered medium light at 10" deep.
The 24" would be considered high lighting at around 10" deep.

The reason for noting the depth, is that obviously water will absorb the light. So the more water between the light source and where you are measuring the reading, the lower the PAR will be.

So for short plants like HC, you'd target the PAR for the bed of the tank. Where for stem plants that grow up, the bulk of the plant will be much higher and therefore get more light.

Too bad the 12" and 10" are not bright enough as I would like, otherwise i would get them. Good price and looks great. Hmm maybe Ill try the the 10" since its a 7000K led. So its $30.59 with or without the discount? I use the 12" wavepoint LED on a tank with Mini M dimensions and it has 16 watts of LED all white. It is high light for the tank and you can grow absolutely anything you want. They are $80 but the fixture is way cool. It resembles an ADA light. Beats the archea light in looks, price, and performance. Im going to use two wave point LED's on a ADA 60P for a total of 32 watts LED.Even wavepoints's 6" LED pushes an incredible 8 watts of power and runs about $60 bucks.

Sorry to be a spoiler, but ultra thin, high wattage LED fixtures without active cooling will not last long. It doesn't even have noticable fins.

All the lifetime quotes for LEDs are taken from suppliers datasheets, which almost universaly state that the estimates are based on the LED being at 25 degrees celsius (at the chip) the whole time. LED light output irriversably drops over time (faster if it's overheating), plus at any instant in time LED light output is lowered by higher temperatures. (I read waaaay too many datasheets when I was messing around making DIY LED lights for my coral tank 2 years ago)

It's cheap, but I wouldnt get rid of your old lights.

Haha, party fowl. Good info though. Finnex claims that the unit itself acts as a heatsink. But then again I really don't know much about LED lightings.

"To extend LED bulb longevity, the circuit boards are built with high quality aluminum and the fixture itself acts as the heat sync to allow ample cooling and superior heat dissipation."

Hello Stan

To expand on what I believe to be a narrow, though partially true statement, wattage spread over an increased array of LEDs in turn will disperse heat build further leaving luminous output stable meeting manufacturer expectations. Our largest fixture to which I believe you were referencing when you stated 'high wattage', the 2' RAY II is 20 total watts spread throughout 192 tenth watt LEDs. Your statement is nothing but valid for a high watt single bulb fixture (the reasoning why the Schuber Wright bulb was developed and won an award). But for this unit as well as other high LED count units, that blanket labeling may not hold true.

To add, the RAY II and FugeRay LEDs are built on an aluminum circuit board attached to a unibody aluminum hood combined by heat sync compound. The entire fixture acts as its heat sync allowing us to offer a slim unit.

And finally, I do not find this unit to be cheap, in all senses of the word. LED quality is just as important when determining LED life and how much heat they withstand. If you want cheap, by using an inferior LED manufacturer, this unit could be produced for near half the price and would be no different than the units flooded on eBay shipped out of China. In fact, we have developed this unit using not one of, but THE LARGEST Taiwan LED manufacturer with global sales offices in Germany, Japan, Sweden, various other countries, and a subsidiary in Texas. LED quality will certainly not be an issue.

My apologies for the long post. Stan, great information bringing light to the negatives of LEDs but there are surely other factors to consider with every case. For those investing in a higher watt fixture with limited LEDs, do take Stans post very seriously.

Without a doubt. Those at the MAX who saw them in person can certainly vouch for that if they did pick them up. RAY II's were leveled upon each other and even then they were still not hot IMO.

I touched one at the show, and can vouch it was fine. Low power LED's don't throw off that much heat, and as Stan mentioned, most mfgs spec them to 25C operating temperature, or around 77F, so the housing should never reach above that except when the ambient temperature itself is higher than that.

I've got a (non-Finnex) LED fixture I purchased originally for my Chang tank. It is 5 x 1watt LED's crammed into a tiny fixture, and the heatsync never feels warm to the touch.

Even without a heatsync, I don't think most LED's would get very hot. The heat sync is there to help maintain operating efficiency and the life of the LED.

I was about to order the 24" DD

But just wanted to be sure that this the the best choice for plants.

Based on the description, there is a Dual 450~465nm High Intensive LED strips version available... while the DD is the 7,000K + 10,000k LED combo..

am I missing something?

The Ray II comes in different lengths as well as Dual High Output LED combinations. Users have the options of a 16", 18", and 24" fixture to meet their aquarium needs. Models are either equipped with a Dual 7,000k + 10,000k LED combo, 10,000k + Actinic combo, or Dual 450~465nm High Intensive LED strips.

for what its worth there is a difference in the height from the water level and the LED covers the full width of the tank unlike the Archaea light. I'm planning on mounting it to a hanging lighting system.

Cons:

The mounting legs are weak, extending it to fit my 10g makes it unstable and sag a little.
Power cord is too short. I have to use and extension.


It is a bit more blue than my t5ho setup (6500k and 10000k bulbs). Overall I like it, but it can definitely be tweak to be even better.

at 18" (which is what I think you meant by max width) it is solid. But a regular 10 gallon tank is 20" long so I had to extended it 1" further on each side, making it sag and I'm not confident that it will hold for long. Good news, I cut up some wire hangers and they make better solid legs.

I was referring to that I have the 24" version with the legs at the max width and there is no sag, but the legs on mine dont extend past the end cap.

to see what you are talking about I just adjusted the legs so they are approx 1" extended past the end and i see what you mean by "sag" but once the legs are within the slots I dont see any reason why they would pop out. it doesnt weigh enough to force them out of the slots

That's what I meant, extending it past the end cap to make up for the 2" required by a 10g tank. Mine is the 18" version.

Bryan mentioned they are considering a 20" version, which would be great for 10 & 18 gallon tanks. I ordered the 18" anyway. I'll probably skip the legs and just put it sitting on the glass lid on my 18 gallon.

I had it shipped to my work, so I won't get it until Monday.

Got mine today and was testing them out. Had to extend the legs out just a little over my 63cm Mr. Aqua, so it sags a little, but should hold. I also agree, power cord is too short. I also am considering hanging mine.

Not sure if they provide more light than the four bulb t5ho setup I have. It looks...about the same?

Since they sit so low over the tank, the light has less chance to spread out. Stems that have reached the top don't get light unless they're directly underneath. Again something that could be fixed with raising them some.

Overall I am interested in them. I don't think I'll be using them exclusively just yet, but maybe as a supplement while I get used to it and figure out how to raise them some.

If your eyeballs are correct, that's really impressive. Most LED light set ups in this price range tend to be very low light. I would have been impressed if the light matched a single T5H0. Even the Marineland Double Brights are rather dim and have poor light distribution and are nowhere close to a T5H0.

outlawboss
04-14-2012, 09:02 PM
Interesting. In that case I think that yes, these are impressive by comparison. If I could lift it off the tank by one or two inches, the 120º lighting spread would be enough to cover the stems on the surface. Otherwise I would say it's slightly dimmer than the T5HO setup. I'll go flip between the two a few more times and see if I notice any difference.

what is your water parameters to cause pearlings? is your co2 24/7?

outlawboss
04-15-2012, 12:50 PM
I didn't change te CO2 cycle at all. Just the lights. The CO2 is pressurized from a 5lb cylinder. Turns on an hour before lights-on and turns off an hour before lights-off. Usually, especially after it turns off, I get a lot of pearling as the plants 'breathe', but that first night with the LED lights made the water look like sprite, which I love.

Got my 2 Ray2 fixtures this morning. Very eye pleasing, slim fixtures. I agree cords are too short and legs are alittle flimsy. As I was adjusting legs over my 10g, leg slipped out and fixture fell into tank, but it survived the dunking with no damage. The lighting is a little blue for my taste....

shawndoc
04-16-2012, 01:56 PM
Got my 18" one in. I can confirm that it is brighter that the single 18" T5H0 I have been using. It also doesn't have the annoying flickering shimmer that the Marineland Double Bright LEDs have.

You guys weren't exaggerating about how short the cord is, it doesn't even reach to the ground from the top of my tank.

Other suggestions:
- I think the 18" is fine for a 10/18 gallon tank. Slightly longer rails on the feet would be nice for better stability. 1/4" on each side would probably do it.
- I'd like to see a pure 6500/7000k version for plants instead of split 50/50 with 10000k LEDs.
- Moon lights would have been cool.

04-16-2012, 02:07 PM
It's hard to get a good 6500k that is why most are 7000k. Now maybe a pure 7000K so it's not as white but it'll be more of the blue everyone complains about.

outlawboss
04-16-2012, 02:18 PM
I agree, a pure 7000k would be cool. I am OK with the combo, it's a little blue but tolerable. If the option were there I'd go 7000k only.

After testing for a few days, I am overall I'm happy with mine. I will probably DIY a hanging system, since the legs are just too flimsy for the 63cm tank. I'd like to test them on a new scape when I get the chance to create one.

Thanks Lee...when I saw your og post that your tank was 36" I thought I could use the 24 for my 50 gal tall its 36"x15"X24". Oh well I might still try it. I'm not putting anything in the tank that requires a whole lot of light....ferns, anubias, crypts and moss.

I used LED's (marineland reef ready) for a year when they first came out. Very bright light and plants grew but it gave me unwanted algae and blue green algae. That's when I realized how the PAR was fine, but the Temperature (10,000K) was too hot. 10,000K is great for marine growth, but is a blue green algae nightmare in freshwater.
I get tired of how so many companies orient their products for Marine. I need to find out what LED company will make us a perfect 7500K LED Lamp.

Matter of fact, Anyone want to buy a Marineland Reef Ready 24"?

Feel free to use my photo if you think it will help :D I meant to post when you asked but got side tracked, lol.

Richard is there any news on the group buy?

The start depends on finalizing a shipping destination that will allow for the cheaper commercial shipping address and easy pick up for members. We are working hard to get this organized and will announce it when ready.

Understood. There is also one more source we are working with to use as a shipping address, let's keep our fingers crossed for this one.

Hey, quick question on the differences on the 3 different styles of the lights. Which would you guys recommend for growing plants??

Neon Shrimp
04-26-2012, 07:39 PM
Steven, for growing plants we would recommended using the 7000 and/or 10000k.

update:

mosses and fissidens seem to be doing great, but floaters not so much.
big difference in the floaters in the tank with the LED vs CF tank.

I'm pretty sure I want in on this group buy when it happens.
*The 18" model looks promising, are there plans for just a 7000k light? Am I able to turn off a row of 10K or Ace. lights?

Hey guys, just wanted to also share my new finnex Ray 2.

My previous LED light I thought was decently bright, with good coverage. It looks like this.

This is the finnex.

Yea. Buy it.

FYI, whoever the Finnex rep is that handles TPT confirmed a 36" and 48" are in production. No ETA given, but figure at LEAST 2 months, if not longer.

No 30" planned.

Still discussing 20".

They also have new sizes of the RAY model, with moon lights as well as the RAY 2 model.

There is no official club group buys planned at this time but members are free to start their own to save on shipping cost. It is always cheaper to get a large enough order to ship using a pallet to a commercial/business address.
