I haven't set mine up quite yet. I temporarily set it up over my fluval and it looks awesome! I'm waiting for a new tank I'm setting up for some new mantis shrimp I'm getting from a fellow local reefer that doesn't want them. It will be perfect for the 10 or 15 gal AIO I'll be setting up for it. The fluval 13.5 was just a tad bit too long IMO. It was too dark toward the end. The light would be perfect for a square tank though. Overall, it's an amazing little light!

Hey! Just wanted to drop some growth pictures useing the light. On 12/12 since day1. I am useing it on 5/10 brightness, and slowly creeping up.
This is the "fresh-water/display refugium" color. Very crisp white, hint of blue.
I am very pleased with the light.

Hey everyone, especially @Reef Breeders , I wanted to post a few pics I got. I finally got my light setup. I got a "new" used tank from a buddy! Tank will be for another N. wennerae (mantis shrimp) inhabitant. Plus it will act as a coral QT/observation tank. The tank is an @Innovative Marine Nuvo Fusion 10 gal AIO.
Roughly 11" W x 11" D x 13" H

I ended up getting the Pico Reef spectrum and I love it!

Quick note that I have this tank in a shelving system/rack that is primarily for caridina freshwater shrimp. So there are other grow lights installed. These additional lights add a tremendous amount of ambient light, which I anticipate will create an algae bloom soon. But I got some readings with only the Pico light it was still kicking out a good amount of PAR!

Reading taken with the Apogee MQ-510

Here it is with the other LED panels on.

Turned the Pico down 50% and its still getting loads of PAR. I will be attempted to black out the side glass to help reduce the white and red spectrums. I specifically try to grow algae for my caridina shrimp, so I know its only a matter of time before it gets out of hand in this tank.

Thanks again to R2R for this opportunity and to @Reef Breeders for helping support this community by doing giveaways like this. I really hope more people pick up this light.

I would love to WIN a ReffBreeders Pico LED to use in my sump or my Pico quarantine tank! What a Great Product with options to benefit my tanks from being able to control the timing, intensity, moon phase options and more! I love IT!
