AquaRay announced their AquaBeam 1500 XG Ultima LED aquarium lighting tile. This 1500 XG has 52% higher output than the AquaBeam 1000 and designed for marine aquarium setups. This unit uses un-lensed (120°) XP-G LEDs driven at 700mA for optimal efficiency. While using the “latest and brightest generation of CREE® XP-G PowerLEDs available.” These are available in Ocean White (10 x 9000K) with or without PowerControl and this lighting unit takes up very little space (20 x 20 cm). These are said to use a total of 23 watts and will be available at the end of this month in the UK from TMC and channel partners in the US. We have a hunch that the new AquaBeam Ultima will work great with that new Multicontrol 8 for Aquaray LEDs. But what do we know?
