OCReef X Series 72 Watt CREE™ LED Aquarium Light with (24) 3 Watt High Output LED's

It's time to replace those Heat Producing 150 & 250 Watt Metal Halides, with the ALL New OCReef CREE LED Light. PAR is equivalent to 250 Metal Halide.

Utilizing the latest Cree high performance high intensity X Series Lamps® XRE-Q5 chip, the OCReef CREE will consume less power, yet produce more PAR (Photosynthetic Active Radiation) for even your most demanding corals.

It just got a whole lot better... delivers a high PUR 420-460 nm, the CREE XRE-D3 Blue LEDs provide insane color enhancement to corals, literally making them glow! PUR, or Photosynthetically Usable Radiation is that fraction of PAR that is absorbed by zooxanthellae photopigments thereby stimulating photosynthesis.

OCReef X Series 72 Watt CREE™ LED Aquarium Light with (24) 3 Watt High Output LED's CREE LED Aquarium Lighting

The CREE™ LED is leading the LED lighting revolution with its unprecedented lighting-class brightness, efficacy, lifetime and quality of light. These lighting-class features enable the CREE™ LED to replace many traditional light sources and save money with energy-efficient light and long lifetimes.

Why should I choose CREE LEDs?
CREE™ is the leader in LED innovation and technology. CREE™ LEDs are constructed of such great quality, that they are being used by major companies worldwide for Aquarium Lighting, Computers, Cell Phones, Flat Screen Televisions, Digital Cameras, Satellites, Commercial Airliners, Aviation, Universities, and Homes. And that's just to name a few. You can't go wrong with a CREE™ LED Aquarium Light. After seeing this, you'll have to ask yourself, "What's in my LED Aquarium Light"?.

The 60 Watt CREE™ 3W LED Light Fixture gives an extreme light spread with penetration from 24 inches up to 48 inches of water depth. Are perfect for large to nano sized aquariums. The unit measures 24 inches in Length x 6 inches in Width x 2 inches in Height (L x W X H). - Operating Frequency 50Hz/60Hz. The LED's are rated for over 50,000 hours, providing 5 years or more of maintenance free and eco-friendly use. Unlike Metal Halide bulbs that require costly annual replacements, due to their deteriorating output and unpredictable color drift.

No Heat Increase:
Running these light fixtures over your aquarium will drastically reduce the aquariums overall operating temperature. Therefore, typically there is no need to use other heat removal apparatus, while running these lights. Running these light fixtures gives you a working environmental temperature - 20 to +30 c. If you plan on using this fixture with or around other lighting fixtures including fluorescent or metal halide, "no worries" the multi-channeled heat sink, with fans and built-in thermostat, will make sure the unit stays cool at all times.

Dimming Capabilities:
As you introduce new corals to your tank, you do not need to reduce lighting hours, you can simply dial down the lighting until your new corals get accustomed to your tank. A wavelength of around 430 nanometers (nm), or higher are the required wavelengths where photosynthetic efficiency is at its highest for symbiotic corals. The 60 Watt CREE™ LED Aquarium Light produces a spectrum of light giving a pure 450~460nm spectrum with no harmful UV radiation unlike Metal Halides and T5 Fluorescents. And with the Wireless Dimmer Controller, makes for an easy and less clustered installation.

Helpful Tips:
For reef aquariums 48 inches or 4 foot in length, fully stocked with corals, it's recommended to use 2 units minimum. PAR measures at a 48": Average of 270+, peak of 380+. Measurements are much greater as the depth of the aquarium decreases. On our PAR tests it out performed well over the reading of our comparable 250 watt MH lamp.

PAR Test Measurements on a 24", 36", & 48" Aquarium:
48": average of 270, peak of 380
36": average of 350, peak of 450
24": average of 600, peak of 650

Versatility: From 14 Gal. to 250 Gal. (Can be used on Aquariums of all sizes)
These units work brilliantly hung over or placed on top of the 14 Gallon Nano Cube, 24 Gallon AquaPods, 28 Gallon Nano Cubes, 12 & 28 Gallon AquaEuro USA, and 29 Gallon BioCubes. Also great for custom reef aquarium builds, and planted freshwater biotopes. The 60 Watt CREE™ LED Aquarium Light is so versatile, it makes the perfect gift for those on your shopping list who love all things aquarium!

Quality Assurance:
All LED products offered from, have been tested by us and have met or exceeded our high expectations, or we simply wouldn't sell it! We test all critical components in-house including PAR output, heat output, and electricity consumption, after a 24 hour burn in period for each unit, to ensure that each unit is of the highest quality. 1 year factory warranty.

If you disassemble most other LED units sold on the market to date, you will notice that after 2 to 4 years many will most likely begin to have integrity issues, like internal corrosion. You can see that all use mass produced, inferior PCBs, drivers, and electronics, that will vastly lose efficiency, often 40% just in the first 2 to 4 years. If you disassemble one of our units, you'll see the clean sealed welds, the plated connectors, protection tubes, and the all aluminum superior PCB, along with a full length active cooled heat-sink, and CREE Brand LEDs. Plus you get the piece of mind that only comes with the CREE Brand LEDs.

Note: When these LED lights are available they sell fast. If you see the Pre-Order showing above, it means we are currently out of stock. The out of stock wait time is typically 2 to 4 weeks, you are welcome to Pre-Order, this will guarantee you'll receive one/some before they sell out again, it will also guarantee that you're locked in at the sale price showing above. Upon Pre-Ordering we'll notify you when it has shipped and when to expect it's delivery.

Note: We reserve the right to modify the design, construction and appearance of our products without advance notice.
