The Neptune GRO is a specialized, 20W LED light designed to grow many types of common Macroalgae (i.e. Chaetomorpha) using a specialized light spectrum which maximizes photosynthesis. The Neptune GRO plugs directly into any available DC24 port in your Apex ecosystem,*****PLEASE NOTE ******NB YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE EITHER THE NEW UK PLUG BAR EB632 OR SPARE 1LINK DC24 PORT TO CURRENTLY USE THIS PRODUCT OR AN OPTIONAL PSU IS AVAILABLE FOR STANDALONE OPERATION AVAILABLE NOW !)
- Compact LED grow light with 84 LEDs in four colors, two key spectrum ranges for optimal macroalgae growth
A large, flat area of illumination promotes better growth, as it creates a much more even spread than single, spotlight-style lights.
A distributed LED design means no light hotspots that can burn the macroalgae
Less light spillage: IP64 water resistance means it can be placed very close to water, reducing the growth of nuisance algae elsewhere
Operates standalone, without an Apex, with the purchase of an optionally available power supply.
Mounts using the optionally available, flexible gooseneck, with one of two clamp styles
Dimensions: 8.7″ x 6.1″ x 1.4″ (light panel itself less than 1″ high)
Two focused wavelength bands (455-460nm and 620-670nm) for maximum algae photosynthesis
Covers a refugium area up to 18”x24”
Requires an available, powered, DC24 port in your Apex Ecosystem on an EnergyBar832 or a 1Link module, or Optional 24V power supply to run standalone
