Ok i was set on the Evergrow pro, now its out of stock and i am looking at other units these people have ...

LEDZeal Malibu S300 Marine Aquarium LED

was looking at this , all lenses are 120deg whereas id go for 120 round the edges and 90 in the middle as i have that choice  with the pro.

I dont want anything ive got to control with either a tablet or a android phone .

As you know i want to keep LPS and SPS  the tank is a 6 footer but has big braces at either end with a small brace in the middle so there are 2 apetures of approx 2x2foot  that are glassless the foot either end is covered by thick glass .

I was going to go blindly to the Evergro Pro , but its out of stock  and im wondering about this one above , its pretty controllable  .Bridgelux LED`s


Hmm the website has been updated and it looks like they have changed the spec , im sure it said 103  LED`s now it say`s 99 .....

I have heard nothing but good things about them! The thing that put me off them was the cheesy aerial coming out of the remote and the metal connector for the light controller. I know my Evergrows aren't that aesthetically pleasing but that's what stopped me purchasing the Malibu's.  :lipsrsealed:

Yes I rung the monday in Xmas week and emailed but got no answer, left my number and havent heard, on the offchance i rang today  and still nothing , so i guess thier not back till next monday?


Changed spec and upped the price ....but the spec seems down and not up to reflect the price increase . Plus theres not any realy detailed info as there is on the Ledzeal one  .

Now I can see the difference there appears to be a version 2 of the pro ..less led`s  102 Vs 99 . Exact specs dont appear to be given as in the other units and i think this is because as has been mentioned in another forum there are copies and the vendor does not publish the exact specs.


This is a shame as a dumbo like me can only compare units by compareing complete specs .


I dont care a great deal for the LEDZeal  unit as you have mentioned Carl  the remote looks naff and if corners have been cut  on that  where else have they been cut , plus the big  thing for me is 120deg lenses all round which spreads but does not penetrate ,whereas id have 90deg  with outside lenses at 120deg  on the Pro  .


Evergrow IT2120 ProReef V2 Marine aquarium dimmable LED unit

Logic tells me that the Version 2 now on sale but out of stock is most likely  an improvement  over the original , but why the less LED`s ? 


Im busting a gut waiting till i can get hold of these people ,i dont do waiting well , im an impatient bitch which is why i waste so much money on daft light units  and why im trying not to do that again this time  .


The opening on top of the tank is only just about 4 foot it was made (the tank) for the Guisemann twin unit , it also had masses of daft taps on top of the tank for the reef clean/closed loop, and other stuff... hence i guess the bloody great braces, the rock has to be arranged to accomodate this . So having the smaller size unit would be ideal , especialy with the 120deg lenses at the ends and back/front.


So .....edging towards the Pro ..except they havent got one ....... :angry: :cry:

Carol ring the mobile number as I know he won't mind....he's forever pushing his lights so he'll be happy of the custom.

If he doesn't want to be contacted he will turn his phone off so you won't disturb him.

JUST RING HIM!!!
