Are the optics on V2s changeable? If so has anyone done it?

I believe they are the same style of lens that has been used for years, it's just that they now look out through holes in the aluminum case rather than through a sheet of glass. You still need to take the case apart to gain access to them. But I've never changed ant on my fixture.

If I could get 120 degree or even wider angle lenses for the red, green and violet leds so they would blend better, I'd consider doing it.

Why do you want to change lenses?

For better blending. I would put 120 on all the whites, reds, greens, and violets.

I'd also be interested.

I emailed reefbreeders last week looking for an answer, but haven't heard back. I'm making a lighting choice soon and if I can't get confirmation I'll have to pass on what would've been six 24" models.

My apologies- I think I saw an email like that, did you check your spam folder?

The optics in the light are 100 degrees- there aren't any wider optics available at this time however we are actively working on sourcing some.

I saw some people just take the lens out all together on the red and greens. I was about to but decided to see what it was like before doing so. I like the potential splash protection.
