He’s been perfecting LED combinations for freshwater planted aquariums that have been long ignored by commercial fixtures until recently.  As demonstrated here by adding each color of LEDs to get to the spectrum that was both visually pleasing and beneficial to plants and fish.

Ultimately reaching it’s full potential with combination of all the LEDs on it was clear how spectacular the impact of LED fixture was to the planted aquarium.  There is no denying the results of the aquarium and the control these custom fixture allow to make colors pop.


This certainly got everyone’s attention to say the least.
