View Full Version : lumenarc II mini vs Lumen max elite

My apologies, I'm sure this has been asked many times before.

I've read that lumenarc's are the best reflectors but these two seem like they're the same thing. They seem very similar in shape. The main diff i can see is the lumenarc is made from flat metal and lumen max is made from "wrinkled" metal. What is the difference in effect?

Both same price when you add the sunlight supply cord to the lumenarc which i will need for connecting with galaxy ballast. The only cost difference is that i can only seem to find the lumenarc reflector on thier own website and thats all i'd be buying from them so I'd have to pay shipping from them but the lumen max i would be adding it onto a large order where I would be paying shipping already. Should i pay the extra shipping to get the lumenarc? Like many other reefers nowadays, I'm on a tight budget.

I have the lumenmax elite (only its the HQI version) above my frag tank, and I love it. I am thinking about putting them above my DT.
