The four photos on the top show a 30cm (12") cubic tank made of starfire glasses. Two ComboRay CR-30 units are mounted on top of this tank with the specific rotatable mounting stands. One can see that the tank is so bright under the two fixtures consuming only 24W. One of the units is composed of 3 x 7,000K CW + 3 x 4,000K NW LEDs, while the other is composed of 3 x 420nm VL + 3 x 450nm RB. Each LED is equipped with 90 degree optical lens to concentrate the light into the tank. Unlike usual LED lights, the two CR-30 units with rotatable mounting stands make it possible to bring certain lateral light to the tank, leading to an insignificant light shielding resulted from the rockscape. The tank owner is going to have this tank kept with dominant SPS corals and some unique zoa species. The maintenance of such a small tank is understandable in terms of water capacity. Frequent water change as well as the temperature management might be the key points to keep this tank in good condition. Let's just wait and see how this project will be proceeded soon in the near future.
The videos show the test of IR remote function of ComboRay series products. With the installation of a IR signal sensor circuit board inside the ComboRay unit, users can individually control the odd and even LEDs connected to two different channels on the main circuit board. Users can install 3 (or 6) blue colored LEDs and 3 (or 6) white colored LEDs separately on two channels. By adjusting the UP and DOWN buttons, the light intensity of the LEDs on two independent channels can then be increased or decreased creating different color temperatures. The ComboRay IR remote package composed of a IR remote and a IR sensor board will be formally launched soon in next year. All the ComboRay users can purchase the package and install them on the fixtures easily.

Can you see the difference bewteen the two photos above? The left photo shows a 60cm (24") cubic tank with one Blaze M-60C unit. The tank looks in bluish hue due to the dominant blue LEDs in the LED arrangement. The right photo is the same tank under the addition of two CR-60 ComboRay units. As one can see from the two photos, the one with the supplementary of ComboRay units looks more colorful and attractive than that without the ComboRay units.
Tank owner: J_H (pH 8.4 member, Taiwan)
Established date: Sept. 27th, 2012
Tank size: 60cm x 60cm x 60cm (24" cubic)
Lighting: Blaze M-60C + ComboRay CR-60 "Pure White" + ComboRay CR-60 "Tropical Blue"
The ComboRay units being used are one "Pure White" model and one "Tropical blue" model. The "Pure White" model is composed of 6 x 4,000K Neutral white + 6 x 7,000K Cool white, while the "Tropical Blue" model is composed of 4 x 400nm Near-UV + 4 x 420nm Violet + 4 x 450nm Royal Blue. The "Pure White" unit provided significant amount of light into this tank making the tank much brighter than before. On the other hand, the use of "Tropical Blue" unit, which focused on the spectrum of shorter wavelengths, enhanced the actinic effect of the corals inside the aquarium. Owing to the improved light coverage as well as the compensation of certain devoid spectrums in the Blaze M-60C unit, the corals are now growing in better conditions. The tank owner will keep observing the effects of two ComboRay units on the growth and coloration of the SPS in his tank. Hopefully, the two ComboRay units will not let him down!
