Hi guys,

Anyone currently using or have used Maxspect Razor 120w LED light fixture? I am trying the find out which setting will give me good par intensity and colors spectrum. I running it on 30G cube, will be adding some softies and Zoas.

Par meter is too expensive to test it out.

Thanks

You might want to read through some of these threads to get an idea of settings.

Yes, I ran two on a 50G cube for years, and just moved them over to a 65G tank, so comparable to 2X your setup. While I feel I had some challenges with some coloration on SPS, it was more than fine for LPS, softies and zoas.

I just ran some PAR tests with an Apogee meter and with a Seneye. I was running them at 45% white / 70% blue and the PAR levels were fine for LPS/softies, but I needed to crank it up to 55% white / 95% blue to reach 250-350 PAR on my upper rocks for SPS. The Seneye reported about 75% PUR at these ratios.

One thing I'd recommend if you still had the original 16K LED pads is to upgrade to the newer 15K ones - the 15K ones when I tested yield 20% more PAR with the exact same wattage consumption. You can order the replacement LED pads directly from Coralvue - in the U.S. that was the cheapest price and free shipping. It is fairly trivial to swap out the pads, just keep track of the + and - terminals as they are in differnet places on old and new. The only tricky thing is working with some pretty small screws.

How much is the fixture above the water surface with these PAR readings?
