The Mame Eco-light is one beautiful RGB LED light that showcases the plethora of coloration options we’ve been lacking in the hobby. We found this great video of the Mame Eco-light that shows the fixture transitioning through a full daylight cycle hyper-warped to 7,200 times as fast as a normal cycle to showcase the light’s abilities. Of course, the video wasn’t good enough for us, so we played around with some freeze-frame animation to give you a different look. The animated GIF selected a frame every five seconds and was spliced together to show this off in a different way.
With over 4 billion color combinations, RGB LED lighting via the Mame Eco-Light really does captivate the senses and allows for a truly subtle transition from dawn to dusk that is not only appealing to us hominids but appeals and calms the piscine friends we keep at home. We’re pretty sure a sudden jolt of midday sunlight right in our face wouldn’t be the ideal way we’d want to start our day and with the controllability of RGB LED lights, we can create a gradual shift in lighting that truly mimics nature. Ever been around when your aquarium lights burst on and watch your fish do their little freak out dance? This added stress isn’t the healthiest for our finned friends and has pushed more than its fair share of skittish jumpers from the wet confines to the carpet.
If you want to see more of this light in action, follow the video after the break and make sure to stop by the Reef Builders Lounge at Reefapalooza in Orange County later this month where we’ll have Mame EcoLight along with some other really cool gadgets on display.

In case you are wondering what the text is stating, roughly translated it reads (thanks Taka!):
- Lighting color would be changed from sunrise color, daylight, sunset color and to moonlight automatically (7200x speed).
- Changing from sunrise color to daylight
- Mimic sunrise color with light purple color
- Daylighting is mimicked with user setting
- Changing from daylight to sunset color
- Mimic sunset color with yellowish color
- It is to reduce the stress to livestock in the tank and avoiding sickness and jumping from the tank by mimicking the natural lighting cycle.
