    The last thread is a big success on "Tell us your Dream Sump and we will listen" with the success of Eshopps 2nd Generation Refugium launch because of the feedback from 3Reef members. We're going to do it again, this time is going to be the Refugium Light to be used with our refugium sump.

    Here's what we plan to have so far:

    1. use LED bulb
    2. keep it around $49.95-$65.99 MSRP so it's afforable
    3. Designs & Features (what you want): Your chance now to be a designer from a hobbyists stand point of view.

    Keep in mind we will make the light based on all the feedback from all of you. After all Eshopps is a brand built for the hobbyists.

    I'd like a couple greens in there as well. We're growing algae after all, right? :)

    True that. My mix is really aimed at horticulture I guess. That's the mix that the plant growers are using right now.

    6 leds- 3 watts but dimmable on teh bulb to reduce energy consumption.

    color combo- 2 red, 1 green, 2 6500K white, 1 10000k white or Blue.

    water proof housing for it lol just incase it does take a dip.

    the normal housing for the led bulbs take alot of realestate so somthing slim and smaller?

    the availability to replace the led chips to suit the color combo to the person without a ton of work.

    comes with a clamp or hanging kit for it, also if it has an intergtated plug wire make it longer than 6 ft lol thats just to shorrt ;D

    so in short everything for under 60 bucks
