We introduced the new induction lamps by H.V. Innovation in the early December, and then we managed to have a sample in our hands, ready to be tested.
As many of you know I’ve always been skeptical about using LEDs in marine aquarium, for a variety of reasons that I’m going to list in this article, but it is undeniable that today the LEDs are an important reality also for aquariology. Speaking with one of the many producers, that at this moment I prefer not to name, we decided to perform a thorough test on my own aquarium. We set ourselves at least 8-9 months to evaluate the goodness of their ceiling led, and to assess the quality of the LEDs. We believe that nine months is sufficient to be able to have reliable conclusions.
Above is my aquarium lit only by the blue LED of my previous ceiling. The double Elos E-Power with blue LED E-lite. Can not deny that I love this color in the aquarium.
I already mentioned my thoughts on the fate of the HQI lamps in my editorial about Interzoo, the industry trade show held every two years in Nuremberg, Germany (Editorial: the Interzoo 2012 in Nuremberg).
Just today we found that Elos made discontinued its fantastic bulbs Elos Spectra. An elegant way to say that will be available while supplies last, but will no longer be produced. I would therefore advise all their lovers to try to order and stock up … as also I just did.
