Coralife has entered the high-end LED lighting market in grand fashion … perhaps too grand? $2,500 puts their fixture at the upper echelon of LED lights; Put in context, the Aqualight LED costs more than:
- 3 Ecotech Marine Radions or
- 3 (upcoming) Aqua Illumination Vegas or
- a Maxspect Mazarra P-Series MZ-P01 Complete LED System with 4 modules, frame, and controller or
- 4 Blue Moon Aquatics P30 with Saturn Ring attachement
- but a bit less than the Vertex Illumina 48″ 260 LED
Is it worth the price? We’ll let you decide.
