Slim & Elegant
Built with a slim and low profile body, the R420R LED Lighting System is design to seamlessly merge into your living area with elegance. The R420R also comes with both pendant mount hanging kit as well as tank-top mounting frame (adjustable from 22" - 36"), whichever suits you better.

Overall dimensions:
60cm (20.5") wide, 28cm (10") deep and 2.2cm (0.9") thick.

User Programmable
With 2 channels and 6 time-points: users can program their own photo-period for their aquariums and fully control the intensity of light their aquarium will receive from dawn to dusk.

Aerodynamic Design
The R420R Lighting system deploys an ingenious aerodynamic design which draws cool air from underneath the fixture, through its body which also serves as a large heat sink, to dissipate heat passively.

Redefined Efficiency
The R420R LED Lighting System redefines the term efficiency, 100% passively cooled, utilizing highly efficient high intensity LED chips from Cree, drawing 120W of power but can out-perform 250w metal halide fixtures.

Enhanced Growth and Coloration
The Razor Lighting system is designed to provide all ranges of color spectrum required by corals and plants to enhance their growth rate, improve their coloration and at the same time give your aquarium the most aesthetically pleasing combination of colors. The Razor will meet the requirements of even the most sophisticated group of reef hobbyists.

410nm/420nm Super Actinic
The Razor Lighting system also utilizes the 410nm/420nm Super Actinic LED chips: the spectrum that is crucial for the success of any reef and water plant aquariums. It is required by Chlorophyll A for photosynthesis, where absorption peaks at 412nm.

Passive Cooling
The Razor Lighting system is designed to be 100% cooled passively. The body of the Razor is crafted entirely in aluminum, serving as a large heat sink. Together with an ingenious aerodynamic design, cool air is channeled through the bottom of the fixture and heat is dissipated through the aluminum chassis. Pre-installed and temperature-controlled fan that turns on only when the temperature rises past 120F.

Latest in LED Technology
Utilizing the latest high performance high intensity Cree XLamp®, XT-E and XP-E LED chips, equipped with 90-degree optics. The Razor will consume less power yet produce more PAR (Photosynthetic Active Radiation) for even your most demanding corals.

Solid Configuration

Love this little nano tank. Have had it up for a few weeks and all is performing well. As with any all-in-one, there are certain things that you will want to upgrade. So far, here is my plans: Must haves: Innovative-Marine Skim Mate (protein skimmer made for this nano - on it's way) Innovative-marine MiniMax Reactor (made for this nano as well but currently out of stock) Innovative-marine Spin Streams (purchased with tank and seem to be working well) Upgrades: The pump that comes with the unit is somewhat not up to par current-wise. I have some larger spares that I will be replacing it with. Would rather have one larger pump versus two smaller ones for heat purposes so I'll replace it with something with more power to create a stronger current. Unknowns: I am a big fan of Miracle Mud and I'm not sure where I can address my refugium requirement in this nano. Both available slots are going to be use by the skimmer and reactor so all that is left is the main pump chamber. With the larger pump I mentioned above, this could not be used as a refugium any more. For now I have just loaded that chamber up with Bio Balls. Don't want an in-tank refugium for sure so I may have to make something to act as my refugium. Over all, the tank is beautiful and the light fixture is awesome. Very happy with my purchase. The 4.5 stars is only due to the lack of real refugium space.
