Hello,
So, I have been searching for a Led light under 200$ that has this particular option, I saw a "Galaxy Hidro" model that uses your phone to program the rise ip and down of the light's intensity.
Anyone knows of some other brands to look at it?
Right now I use an Ocean Revive T247 and it's a really good light, but Ihave always wanted that option.
Again, budget is 200 tops. (Have to save $$$ for the X-Mas kid's gifts)
Thanks a lot for the help!

Thanks for the info, But I'm not quite sure if the SuperLux model has a sunrise/sunset program, does it?

It doesn't! It has on/off timers not a sunrise/sunset controller.

The Galaxy Hydro you were looking at is the same thing, on/off and dimmer (by wifi) but not a sunrise/sunset controller.

I don't think any of the 'quality' Chinese fixtures have controller systems for $200 or less. ReefBreeder, OceanRevive and others have one for $325.

Be careful not to get a fixture that offers cool controller ability but has 0.5 or 0.75 watt leds like Current. If your tank is 12" deep, OK, if it's 24" deep, this won't grow your corals. Even they admit that 24" deep the PAR is almost zero!

Current USA Orbit Marine LEDs have it. You can program it for 0-60 mins for sunrise and same for sunset. You can set the intensity as the time moves on.

Like, You want it to turn on at 6am and by 7am you want it to be at 60% intensity. It will get brighter by 1% every minute.. And it fits your price range

Orbit marine's are not a good choice for mixed, softies you will be fine and maybe some lps but thats about it.

Check these out. In your price range. Density is much lower than Reefbreeders though.

They are great for planted tanks but I have no exp. w/ them on sw..
MAYBE someone here has..

I pretty much would guarantee the best in that price range for what you get..

Afte x=mas you can just add panels..

Sorry, thought you just meant dimming and brightening gradually over a couple hours.

I don't know how big of a tank you're wanting it for, but I bought an AI Prime recently and it has a programmable feature (even lunar and storm effects). You can control it from your phone or computer and it sells for $199. (I really like mine!)
