Finnex marine+ 24/7

Has anyone seen this light at a trade show? Was searching around last night on the finnex website and saw they were releasing a marine version of their planted 24/7 I already own. And wondering if anyone had more information on it.

I love their design vs. cost. Would be great if was capable of supporting some low or medium light coral in my shallow SW tank.

Gemach, are the planted 24/7 worth the cost? I've been eyeing one for about 2 months now and I'm almost tempted to buy one today

The par rating is slightly higher than the regular planted+. There's not many leds on the market for the price point that offer its par, controllability, and low profile design.

The 24/7 function is a little useless for me. My tanks are in the bedroom. So hard to sleep with a moon light on or sunrise starting before I wake up.

How long before the VivaGrow clone version hits the market? Or is there a strong enough market to create a low cost, weaker copy of this Finnex fixture?

I think it's worth it for the reasons gemach mentioned.
I also ran this in 24/7 mode for my shrimp tank in my bedroom. Had to switch it to manual mode because of string algae issue and the dawn/dusk light was a challenge to sleep through. Running it a 10%.

When does the dawn usually start? I get up at 4 am, 3 times a week for work and 8 the other days

You can set it to start whenever you'd like.
