The superior field of LED lighting has a new player: the AquaBeam 1000! Touting ten intense CREE LED's @ 3 watts each in it's ~8" square waterproof case, the AquaBeam 1000 is rumored to rival a 150w halide. The LED's range from 14k to 50k in color temperature, so colors should really pop underneath this nifty, modular fixture.
LED really is the next generation of lighting in all aspects (not just for aquariums!) and I'm glad to see the hobby moving towards more efficient forms of lighting. Kudos to our allies in the UK at TMC for taking the plunge!
Luckily for all CA blog readers, I have a few contacts, and am working to procure a review unit once distribution (from well-known livestock provider Quality Marine) starts! Update: please see our review of the AquaBeam 500!
