    Hey @Ryanbrs @randyBRS ... When are you guys gonna have a BRS TV Investigates featuring this new player in the LED market? Is BRS even gonna sell them? I'm curious to see how they do.

    This might not be too helpful, but manufacturer specs can be found here:

    I wasn't able to locate any online source for these lights...so I wasn't able to find reviews for them either.

    Yeah... they're helpful but it's what the real world #'s say that I'm interested in. I think @Bulk Reef Supply does a great job of giving you some real world data to look at and make a better informed decision. @randyBRS and @Ryanbrs were just talking about how they wish that LED manufacturers would make lights that wouldn't allow you to enter settings that you could kill your corals with and that would actually help you right out of the box grow coral. From what I'm seeing in the promo material, Red Sea even has a schedule right out of the box along with the intensity and spectrum to help you. It sounds interesting. I'm hoping they fast track an episode of BRS TV to explore these more in depth.

    We appreciate that you hold our investigates series in such high regard :) Usually once a product goes through our new product team, we'll decide if we carry it or not. Based on the info that I've seen about the Red Sea LED so far, it certainly looks promising. If and when we have the light on our website, I'm sure you'll see us do some testing to put it through it's paces in true BRS fashion. I'm also excited to get my hands on this light to check it out!

    @randyBRS and @Ryanbrs, I have the AI Hydra 26 HD's on my tank and would like to know the best settings for them. I have SPS, LPS and softies and am struggling to keep them happy. Thanks!

    @Phil D
    I run one hydra HD on my tank. Tank is 18in deep and 29in wide. Here is shots of my tank and settings I’m running.

    Let me know how they do. Hope they do well with it.
    I do get great polyp extension on my acros. Little blurry but you can see the polyps fully out.

    I hope I can interpret the overall waveform of the settings to the slide screen setting area.

    No, the overall schedule, I can see the time dots on the bottom where you changed settings

    I've been talking with Scott over at Red Sea and he's sending us enough lights to test the Red Sea LEDs through the same tests we've done with other fixtures! As soon as they arrive we'll get on them ASAP! :) Stay tuned!

    This is Awesome Randy! I’ll tune in on Friday. I’m gonna be buying new lights and Red Sea is at the top of my list. It will be great to see what you all get for par.
    Tank is 24x24x24 and I was planning on 2 90 watt.

    I really love the BRS investigates videos you guys do. Thank you!

    Thanks! Quick change of schedule has this one actually coming out next Friday, but the data is completed. I can tell you that the PAR output for the ReefLEDs was higher than other 90watt lights we tested so far. I'd say that a single ReefLED 90 on a 60gal cube would be the way I would go for a mixed tank with SPS in the top (15K setting) ;)

    Thank you Randy,
    Its gonna take me a bit to get the tank set up and rocks cycled. I’ll tune in next Friday.
    I was thinking 2 to reduce shadowing. Now I’m thinking I’ll start with one and decide later if I need to add T5s or another ReefLED 90.

    Following as well! I can always count on BRS to give me the product info that would probably be impossible to get otherwise. I also thank you for your honesty in your product reviews! Your business model is one that should be adopted by many other companies because it works!!
