JBJ Lighting


Let there be light! Be the first upgrade your 24g Nano Cube Deluxe (Model: MT-50-LED) into our new 28g HQI canopy. The first HQI metal halide system integrated into the canopy to keep the aesthetic appeal with the high powered lighting that is required for SPS, CLAMS, and LSP species.

Our new HQI Canopy Upgrade Kit includes the following:

  • 150 watt/14K HQI Metal Halide Lighting with Remote Ballast.
  • 4 Blue Nite-Vu LED’s positioned on all 4 corners for an even light dispersion with its own remote ballast for timer usage.
  • 4 Cooling Fans (3000 RPM each fan) integrated into the hood.
  • Integrated Thermal Protection Chip that automatically shuts the HQI lighting OFF as an added safety feature if the fans were to fail.

EASY as 1-2-3

The new HQI canopy was designed to perfectly fit the 24g Nano Cube Deluxe
    1. Raise the existing canopy up 90 degrees from the tank and unsnap the canopy from the 2 hinges located at the rear tank frame.
    2. Insert the pump power cord and heater cord into the new HQI canopy. Rubber grommets are included for easy install.
    3. Snap in the new HQI canopy into the same 2 hinges. You’re done! Plug in and enjoy your new high intensity shimmering reef aquarium.

Great lighting, heats up takn

This hood quickly and easily fit my 4 yr. old 24 g nano cube. Lighting quality is great and my corals are thriving. The one major drawback is that it very quickly elevated the temperature in my tank 10 degrees. Clearly the fans and "special plastic" are not sufficient for heat dissipation. I ended up buying a $300 chiller to go along with the hood and would plan on doing so unless your tank normally runs at a pretty cool temp or you are ok with an 85+ degree tank.

Be carefull

This upgrade was not what I expected: 1- Unit does not fit flat on top of aquarium so that light feeds to the outside when closed. 2- Suppost arms that keep the top from going back too far will not fit this top. Nothing to hold the top up. Broke hinge trying to work on reef while holding top open with one hand and working with the other (diffilcult). 3- Front opening is too small and not very usefull. 4- Noise from fans far exceed the old unit.
