My New Current USA LED plus fixtures

"Super bright 6500K White LEDs are paired with full-spectrum RGB LEDs to offer every color under the sun (and a few that aren’t) all controlled from a single 32-key customizable remote. The Satellite LED+ features effects that you’ll have to see to believe, plus each color is individually adjustable for endless custom color blends. Features include: 6, freshwater-optimized, color pre-sets 12, dynamic effects including: cloud cover, fading lunar, storm, lightning, dusk and more 4, memory buttons for saving custom color blends Pause/play each mode on-demand. "
I received 2 X 48" units yesterday for my 75 gallon fresh water community planted tank with pressurized C02. I absolutely love them and so do my plants and fish They are sleek , sturdy and well built . Affordable also compared to most LEDs . I got them for 119.99ea from dr fosters and smith during the summer sales event. They are usually $200 each .
I will be upgrading the substrate from black sand to Eco complete and heavily planting as soon as I can afford it , but so far I'm very happy with them .
Here is a before and after . Before I only had a quad T5H0 covering half the tank so definitely loving the upgrade .

Cool review... I have two as well over a 26g, fantastic light!

Join our Sat+ Club and also enter to win Current's new Ramp Timers to completely automate your light cycles. There's a .pdf to read more on it in the thread I started on TPT.

I just launched a Satellite+ Club on TPT to showcase your tanks, share information, and learn more about your Sat+ fixture!
Here: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=420457

Also, Current is running a contest to give-away some of their newly announced Ramp Timers! Contest starts now through September 15th.

To enter, join the Sat+ Club by posting your tank there and also in the Current Sponsor forum...


Sounds like fun!
