So back in February I went on a quest for new Nano Box Reef arrays. They were widely known as some of the better arrays on the market. They had a small form factor, good color spectrum and excellent color blend. And they could be had for relatively cheap. I was unable to find any new arrays so myself and @theatrus worked on making some new ones. He did the heavy lifting. I had the dream lol

They are currently a 13 diode array. They fit the exact same form factor as the last arrays from Dave at Nano Box. We added a picolock connector for ease of swapping along with standard solder pads. Will this be a long term project? Don't know. Need to see the interest.

They contain:
4 Royal Blue
2 Mint
1 Violet and 1 UV
2 5700 white and 1 3k white
1 Blue and 1 Cyan

5 different channels of control. Right now I have my light 5" above the water. 4" below the water is over 400 PAR. 15" below the water is 200+ PAR. Using a Apogee SQ-520. I will get more accurate measurements very soon.

I currently have 8 of these available. $65 shipped per array which covers my costs. If I were to make 30 of these I could get the pricing closer to $40 shipped. I am hand laying every diode and then flowing them. I then test them in a nano box fixture.

Please let me know if you are interested. Any questions or ideas please post them here. I know lots of people love the NB lights but they are getting dated. These make them relevant again for sure.

Also I am working on helping with Bluefish and either absorbing the hosting cost or working on a way to have that removed if we can. I hate subscriptions as much as the next guy. But Spencer has said he is working on some nice updates.

I'm actually shocked this hasn't had any sort of interest.
