Aqua Illumination's Prime Fuge HD is the perfect light for any serious refugium. The industry-leading Prime Fuge HD includes wireless control through the MyAi application that can be used with any smartphone or tablet. The LEDs used are designed to provide the correct spectrum that macro-algae like cheatomorpha require for photosynthesis. Unlike other refugium lights that are inefficient and use cheap LEDs, Aqua Illumination only uses high-quality CREE and Liteon diodes that provide maximum light output while minimizing the power consumption.
Multiple Mounting Options
Efficient and Effective
Maximum Spread - 24" x 24"
Recommended Spread - 18" x 18"
Refugiums are a great option for natural nutrient reduction. By creating a safe harbor where macro-algae can grow, with proper conditions, algae will prefer to grow in your refugium instead of the display tank, while also consuming nitrates and phosphates as the algae grows. In the past couple of years, researchers have found that the spectrum of light for algae to grow under is completely different than what corals prefer and in some cases is the most important factor in algae health. The heavy red lighting helps increase the rate of photosynthesis leading to quicker growth and nutrient uptake, but the red light is not all that is needed. Aqua Illumination also includes two cool while and a single UV LED to create a balanced spectrum that is ideal to maximize algae growth.
