48 Inch IceCap Reef Illuminations 6 T5 + 2 Tubular LED Moonlights (470nm Actinic LED) Fixture - Black Information

IceCap - Reef Illuminations

With nearly twenty years as a leader in aquarium lighting the decision to offer a full fixture was not made lightly. Our first fixture had to be done right. We spent time talking with a cross section of the industry. We spoke with members of reef clubs across the country and with some of the smartest people we know, our resellers!

The first Reef Illuminations™ fixtures were shown at MACNA in New Jersey. Comments from the attendees were positive beyond our expectations. The quality of the sturdy Aluminum fixture and the integrated Tubular LED Moonlights™ Blue LEDs were just two of the most popular features.

Reef Illuminations will be a series of fixtures. The first two fixtures of the series are a 4ft T5 with Tubular LED Moonlights™ and a T5/Metal Halide combo with Tubular LED Moonlights.

Reef Illuminations Construction
The body of the fixtures are a very substantial, lightly textured, coated Aluminum. The Aluminum dissipates heat more efficiently than most construction materials and the chemical coating assures the fixtures stay shiny and corrosion free for years. Under the covers they are equally impressive. Wiring meets and exceeds the toughest specifications; internal components are held in place by bolts with washers the preferred assembly process instead of screws. Power cords are 3 meters (10ft) for increased safety. The T5 fixture, as configured, does not require additional cooling.

Reef Illuminations are designed to emulate a specific environments
The health of a reef display is dependent on an abundance of the correct light. Our market research uncovered a need for a quality fixture to provide the correct amount of light for a reef display of soft corals, zoanthids, mushrooms, large polyp stony corals, and some lower-light, small polyp, stony corals. Don’t confuse lower light with lower quality light. Some fixtures don’t put out much light because of poor design. We’re putting out the right amount of light.

  • 2 tubular IceCap LED Moonlights (included)
  • 6 HO T5 lamps (lamps not included)
  • Sturdy aluminum body provides superior cooling
  • Chemically treated to never fade, rust, or corrode
  • Internal HO T5 ballasts
  • 3 power cords: 2 for T5 lamp groups and 1 for LED’s
  • Integrated highly reflective aluminum reflectors
  • Acrylic lens to protect lamps
  • Silent and cool-running, no fans required
  • Adjustable solid aluminum legs and wire hanging hardware included
  • 10-foot Power Cord
  • 3 year Warranty
  • Size: 47” x 17.375” x 2.125 ”

pretty good

Reviewers Rating Great

Comments: I just got these today and they seem pretty nice. The splash shield was cut just a little bit to big so it didnt fit perfect. Had to really work it in there and even when it got in it is slightly warped. This unit is wide. It covers almost the whole top of my 90g. Its about 17inches wide. It puts out a good amount of heat when in a canopy but is ok without. Definitely get a fan it its in a canopy. They do not have switches to turn them on and off which kinda sucks. Legs are sturdy and they also come with the hanging kit which i havnt used yet but seems pretty well made. The moonlights look amazing. I paid 400 for them and i feel that thats a good price. I would not pay the 800 they ask on ice cap website. Overall i think there a good midgrade light.

Heavy Duty, Low Heat

Reviewers Rating Excellent!

Comments: Extremely heavy duty, built like a tank. Puts off serious light and much less heat than other MH lighting I have seen, the dual cooling fans drastically reduce the heat. The lunar LED's are unbeilevable, nothing else on the market compares. Expensive, but if you have the budget, can't beat the quality of light.
