Razor Led Lighting Now available to order from Aquahome

Razor Led Lighting Now available to order from Aquahome


The Maxspect Razor LED systems are very popular amongst serious aquarists. The R420r is constructed from an aluminium body, serving as a large heat sink, together with an ingenious aerodynamic design so cool air is channeled through the bottom of the unit and heat is dissipated through the aluminium chasis. The R420R also has a built in temperature controlled system so active cooling is engaged as and when needed to ensure optimized performance.
The R420R has 6 time points, meaning you can program your own photo period and fully control the intensity of light to your aquarium from dawn to dusk.
The R420R utilizes the most up to date high performance high intensity CREE XLamp XTE and XPE LED chips equipped with 90degree optics. This means the Razor lighting systems will consume less power yet producing moer PAR for even your most demanding corals.
The Razor or R420R as it is also known, utilizes the 410 and 420 nm super actinic chips, this is the spectrum that is crucial for the success of any reef and water plant aquariums as it is required by Chlorophyll A for photosynthesis, where absorption peaks at 412nm. In fact the Razor covers all major spectrums of light for enhancing growth rate in corals and plants, improving coloration and of course the best lighting for viewing.

September Coldwater Fish of the month: Bitterling

Coldwater Bitterling

Bitterlings are peaceful, short lived species, generally surviving only around 5 years. Their maximum size is 11cm but they usually grow much smaller. Their diet is mainly omnivorous and they are a great addition to the coldwater aquarium and are also popular in the koi aquarium as they can feed of the parasites which infect koi. When they mature they develop either a pink or blue hue at the base of their caudal fin.

An ideal aquarium is around 100 litres with lots of plants, either real or artificial with plenty of hiding spaces and need to be fed a variety of foods including vegetables as well as some meaty foods. A good quality flake food as well as freeze dried, live or frozen foods is ideal.
