We have been unabashed fanboys of NanoBox Reef LED lights since their very first model of LED aquarium fixture. With so many manufacturers offering well-polished and highly refined mass-produced fixtures, we’ve often been asked what is it about NanoBox Reef’s lights that we really like.
There’s no doubt that you can get more power, more features, more wireless controls with the likes of AI, Ecotech and Kessil, but NanoBox Reef is the closest product there is to an anti-establishment LED light. This new demonstration video from NanoBox Reef featuring their Tide, Duo and Quad light fixture models ought to be the best possible to answer to ‘why NanoBox?’.
Having carved out their own niche in the nano LED aquarium lighting market and only aiming to manufacture their lights on a ‘handmade scale’ NanoBox Reef has more freedom to break from the pack and create a light that is relatively different from all the others. On the outside of the Tide, Duo and Quad lights you get a finely crafted LED light which is incredibly thin with a special attention to fit and finish that can be customized before and after you get the lights.
The Bluefish controller that is paired with the NanoBox has also matured to the point where it can make the NanoBox Reef LED lights do nearly all the same things as the major payers. Finally, NanoBox Reef’s selection of LEDs and colors are also unique and it is the only platform that has foregone Cree LEDs in favor of Luxeon and Philips Rebel diodes for a somewhat different color rendition than all the other guys are using.
Other tweaks like discrete moonlighting LED circuits, interchangeable lids in a myriad of colors and materials also really give this light a lot of stylish appeal. To dial in the fanboy-ism a little bit, if there’s one thing we wish were different about NanoBox Reef’s LED lights it’s that the lights are built to be either side-mounted with a gooseneck arm or they are built to be suspended above the tank, so you can’t go back and forth.
But the mounting inflexibility is a small trade-off to have all of the best features of modern LED lighting in a truly stylish package.
