TUNZE LED eco chic refugium 8831 for algae cultivation in marine refuges or plant growth in fresh water basins combines both attributes "eco" and "chic" into a highly effective, perfectly-designed aquarium illumination at an absolutely reasonable price. In seawater, Chaetomorpha algae are an excellent economical and easy alternative to many chemicals or resins to eliminate nitrates and phosphates from the aquatic biotope. Thus, it is absolutely sufficient to harvest a handful of algae from time to time to maintain the biological balance in the aquarium.For this purpose, TUNZE® has developed a special LED that effectively promotes algae resp. plant growth in any filter or plant basin with its light spectrum.
The eco chic LED lights with protection class IP 68 operate permanently in the air but also under water. The special manufacturing process doesn't just guarantee the water resistance, it also enables the permanent underwater operation which also relieves the pressure on the aquarium heater. This underwater lighting avoids light reflections on the water surface making the lighting source even more efficient. An immersion depth here of 1 to 2 cm (.4" - .8") is more than adequate. A compact housing has been developed through the use of the latest components. This can be attached flexibly using the Magnet Holder. Operation with extra-low safety voltage ensures risk-free underwater use without electrical losses.
The built-in overheating protection as a safety function ensures that the performance of the lamps is gradually reduced from 9 W to 7 W at temperatures of approx. 25°C (77°F).

this needs 6 stars Jan 10, 2020
I just got this yesterday, but GREAT LIGHT.. super bright for 10 watts.. I dont know how it’s so bright. I wish I always had this thing. Also I know it will last forever (it's a TUNNZZZEEEE) . No issues ‘mounting’ as I have no way to really mount anything in my sump refugium. You just stick it on the side wall of tank with magnet. And simple but genius mounting via the easy magnet mount. I’m going to get another one for my other tank/fuge. I’m really impressed with this simple but perfect light. Still amazed how bright it is. Caveat: I dont know first hand how fast or well it will grow chaeto. But I'm totally not worried from what I read on other's experiences. My fuge is about 8 gallons. It's about 20" left to right (wide). This light lights about 16" of it. Id say it would be fine for up to 15 gallon fuge 16-18" wide. It also made my sump look much 'cleaner' compared to my finnex previous strip that I had just laying on top of the fuge section.
