Kuramata VS. Mothra! More Sci-Fi Lamps From Japan
The incredible aquarium light fixtures by Kuramata are our next highlight of Japanese aquarium products. These HID/LED/FL fixtures really capture the Japanese style and would seem more natural orbiting Earth than over our aquariums. From the Farufarra with its array of LED discs to the big guns of the Rajjo - these aquarium lamps are out of this world!

I can't decide which one is cooler!

They sure look nice.

They don't appeal to me and that's putting it nicely. Maybe if it didn't look like they had some spare metal and decided to screw and weld lights on in a random half arsed manner it would look nicer.

I am with you about ballast placement but I think part of that 'look' is because they want the spots to be able to move around for best placement. Their newest one shown - the Pianetta - looks more refined than the others to me.

Those look pretty cool. I'm not sure I understand what you mean about spare metal etc, they look pretty sleek, modern and adjustable to me. Maybe take another look? It actually looks very utilitarian if you ask me. If that's what you're looking for they look nice.

Any idea on export possibility Matt?
Pretty soon here we will need more Japanese members or maybe fund a Holiday for Steve along with a bunch of boxes and a shopping list

a while back we had a discussion about the single 70w spotlights that were only like $50
but there was no way to get them shipped overseas and the power adapters were kind of spendy.
hopefully the US makers catch on
