We decided it was time for an updated set of photos for Aquatic Life's fantastic set of entry level reef LED fixtures. Hope you enjoy it! A quick side by side comparison of the Aquatic Life LED fixture up against the competitor's fixture. It is important to note that the Aquatic Life is actually much brighter by comparison, but in order to properly photograph the colors without the photo being too "bright" and washing everything out, the camera settings were changed. Here is a photo comparison using the same aperture and F-Stop settings, with automatic white balance. You will notice that the Aquatic Life fixture is quite a bit brighter which takes away color (creates white hot spots) and detail from the photo. A better view of the Aquatic Life fixture standing alone over the 20 gallon reef aquarium. WOW were we ever impressed! All corals in this system started out "brown" and were taken from the bottom of the barrel so to speak. This was our way of testing the fixture's capability in enhancing coral coloration. Many SPS corals were only exposed to this aquarium for 3 - 4 weeks. The Aquatic Life 1.0 LED fixtures certainly bring out the best of corals! Most people only see colors like this in their SPS when using Metal Halide lighting, or 6+ bulb HOT5. The Aquatic Life LED fixture certainly does the trick! This coral used to be completely brown! Newer additions that are showing good coloration under the new fixture. The bleached coral is restoring coloration, while the browned out coral is enhancing coloration. A series of top down photos to show the true colors of the corals in the aquarium. Thanks for checking out our photo-review of the Aquatic Life 1.0 24" 36w LED fixture! One last top down shot!
