IceCap LED Moonlight Retro

Posted on Wednesday, February 10th, 2010 at 5:26 am by

The new IceCap LED Moonlight Retro kits are really fun! Sporting the same look as a standard T5 bulb tube, these new LED tubes are powered by a low voltage transformer rather than a fluorescent ballast. IceCap chose to enclose the LEDs in a tube, which not only provides ample spread, but protects the circuit boards from the humid, salty environment that can be so harsh on some aquarium lighting brands.

LEDs are usually favored for their low energy consumption, long life span, and low heat emission. And while those are all true with the IceCap LED Moonlight tubes, the crazy colors they bring out in corals is where their true appeal lies. We’ll post some photos and perhaps a video in a follow-up article, so for now, you’ll just have to take our word for it! All we have to say is that we couldn’t stop staring. The next day, we all waited for the T5’s and Metal halides to go off, so that we can inspect the tank under this great new light. The colors were truly outrageous. Actinics simply get blown out of the water by these LED Moonlight Tubes.

The IceCap LED Moonlight Retrofit kits ship out complete with mounting clips which can be used to attach the tubes to a canopy, hood, or existing fixture. The heat negligible emitted by the tubes is dissipated by the aluminum heat sink on the back of the tube, and at only 4 oz., you don’t need to worry about any added weight to you existing aquarium lighting scheme.
