The Mazarra LED reef light is just starting to arrive at aquarium stores in the US, Japan and Australia and already B-Box Aquarium is first out of the gate to get one up over an SPS reef tank. The pair of Mazarra LEDs featured in this video are of the limited edition initial run of silver colored housings, of the P-Series Mazarra running at 60 watts a piece.
The SPS Aquarium used to display this pair of P-Series Mazarra LEDs appears to be about 60 gallons (225 liters) and about three feet long (90cm). If we go back to the old (practically useless) watts per gallon rule, that means that this SPS aquarium is essentially running somewhere in the neighborhood of two watts per gallon, which back in the day would have been good enough for only mushrooms, zoanthids and maybe some soft corals. My how things change. Of course the proof in the efficacy of the third generation Maxspect light will be in its long term performance, so let’s hope B-Box does some follow videos like we’ve been graced with in the case of Bon’s Lagoon.
