The quality light product manufacturer Advanced Lighting Solutions will soon be delivering one of it’s flagship products, the halide/Actinic LED combo pendant. A metal halide pendant with built in supplemental actinic LED is one of our dream aquarium lighting products and it is right around the corner from being available for purchase. Don’t be confused with the plethora of other lights out there which have a couple of blue LEDs for moonlight purposes; each one of these professionally designed actinic LED lights can produce PAR numbers upwards of 200 umols and they will spill out more than enough blue light to match the intensity of your 150-400 watt metal halides. Furthermore, the LED actinics are fully directable so you’ll be able to get that spot of color exactly where you want it in your tank. The ALS pendants which are available (and configurable) for double or single ended metal halide use will run $160 and the actinic LEDs will also run $160 each with the included mounting brackets to attach to the ALS pendant. Premium Aquatics and Marine Depot should be receiving their first bacth of the halide/led combo pendants in about two weeks and we expect to see some deals out there selling the pendant and two actinic strips in the $425-450 range.
