Product Description

ReefBreeders Pico LED

Sunrise, Sunset, and Moonlight Controller

The latest ReefBreeders Pico LED has undergone a complete transformation, setting a new standard for nano & pico aquarium lighting. A standout feature is its newly developed controller, offering an advanced yet user-friendly interface. Unlike its predecessor with a basic on/off switch, the new Pico LED features a programmable timer for 8, 10, or 12 hours. This timer gradually increases and decreases light intensity, mimicking natural sunrise and sunset effects.

Users can adjust the maximum intensity in 10% increments and have the option to activate or deactivate the moonlight setting, which runs the light at 5% intensity during night time hours to simulate moonlight. In addition, the controller can be detached, allowing the light to be connected directly to a power supply and used with third-party timer systems for enhanced control.

Power and Spectrum Upgrades

The 2023 model boasts a significant 28.5% increase in power, increasing from 7 watts to 9 watts. This power enhancement is supported by a new onboard heat sink, which allows for higher LED intensity without the risk of overheating, thus prolonging the lifespan of the LEDs. 

The ReefBreeders Pico LED is available in 3 distinct color spectrums:

Saltwater Reef

Tailored for coral growth, this spectrum includes 1 x 6500K Cool White, 3 x 450nm Royal Blue, 1 x 420nm Violet, and 1 x 480nm Cool Blue LEDs. It effectively covers SPS corals in areas up to 10" x 10", LPS corals up to 14" x 14", and soft corals up to 16" x 16".
