Will this fit on a Fluval Edge 12 gallon and be enough light to keep coral?
By Customer Service on November 13, 2012
The Nano Type-R LED aquarium light for reef systems would be a great choice for keeping low light corals such as mushrooms, Zoanthids and soft corals. The tank, however, may be tricky to mount the light, as the top is completely covered. The Nano Type-R is designed to clamp onto the rim of the tank. It may require some improvising on your end.

Will this be enough light for a 30 gallon rimless nano cube?
By Customer Service on December 5, 2012
The Nano Type-R LED aquarium light will have enough luminosity to light up the tank. However, if you have a reef tank with soft corrals, you might consider purchasing two so that you have a higher PAR value that will penetrate further into the water and offer more usable photosynthetic light.

What are the dimensions of the fixture?
By Customer Service on December 14, 2012
Answer:The light platform on our Nano Type-R LED Light measures at 7” wide x 6” deep x 0.5” thick. The bracket will raise the light 4 inches above the rim of the tank.

I have a 150 with a 6 ft metal halide. Would three work?
By Customer Service on January 4, 2013
The Nano Type-R aquarium light was not designed for a 150-gallon tank, nd even with three of them you will most likely not have ample lighting. We suggest our SLR series of lights that produce higher lumens and cover more area: http://www.truaqua.com/aquarium-led-lighting.html
The SLR series is targeted towards reef keepers and uses much less energy and gives off much less heat than a 6ft metal halide. Depending on the dimensions of your tank, you may want to consider running two SLR-24 lights across the top. Two of these lights will provide excellent lighting and will have a PAR value that will support low-medium light loving corals, mushrooms, and Zoanthids.

Will this work on the ZN-5G Black/White?
By Customer Service on January 9, 2013
The Aquatop Nano type-R aquarium light will work exceptionally well on our ZN-5G. Great choice!

Does this light have moon light? Or can you swith from all of the to just blues?
By Customer Service on January 18, 2013
The Nano Type-R does not come with a blue-light only mode. When the light is powered on, it will emit both blue and white light.

Can i use this light on your high clarity 11 gallon cube, and successfully keep zoo's and anemones?
By Customer Service on January 31, 2013
Yes, out Nano-Type-R light can be used with our 11-gallon high clarity aquarium and will look stunning! This light supports soft corals and Zoanthids. As for anemones, its effectiveness will depend on the anemone and other variables.
