    Well a year and a half later I had lost 2 of my 6 seahorses. Not sure why but that is in the past. I sold off my 60 gallon cube for a 40 and my wife is impressed. Still lots of tweaking to do but here it is.

    40 gallon rimless
    Coralbox Moon LED puck with gooseneck
    Bubble-magnus C3.5 skimmer
    Eheim return pump
    MP10wQD connected to my Reeflink
    ViaAqua CC-25B chiller

    There is a new model out Moon LED Plus. The one I have is the first model. Here are the details. It actually grew softies and was comparable to other lights. I have pictures somewhere. I was offered a discount to review the Plus model, but was not in the market to upgrade at the time as this is not for coral growth, I just like the fixture and price.

    The Coral Box Moon LED light has 6 dimming channels controlled via an app on your Apple or Android smartphone.
    You can set a full sunrise and sunset schedule as well as lightening storms and cloud cover.
    Channel
    1 White 4 Cree XT-E 5watt 7500K Channel
    2 Royal Blue 5 Cree XP-E 3watt 450nm Channel
    3 Violet/UV 1 EpiLEDs 3watt 420nm 1 EpiLEDs 3watt 405nm Channel
    4 Cool Blue 2 Cree XP-E 3watt 475nm Channel
    5 Green 1 Cree XP-E 3watt 520nm Channel
    6 Red 1 Cree XP-E 3watt 630nm
    Each fixture measures 7" in diameter x 1 1/3" tall, and covers a 20" cube.
    They consume about 50watts at full power, and 25watts at half power.
    They include an on the tank mounting rail as well as the standard hanging cables. All fixtures include our full 2 year warranty.

    I purchased mine directly through fish-street.com with discount code 'thefragtank' for an additional 4% off. I do not recall what mine cost back then. Right now with the discount the Coral Box Moon LED Pro is $227.36 on fish-street, found my current one on amazon.ca going for $261.99.

    I actually have the plus version and it has been treating me well. I wouldnt recommend it for sps, but its fine for lps. Pets and ponds has them for $250. Also i noticed that the AI prime HD is on sale for $249 and a lot of retailers. This only includes the body and you would have to purchase a mounting kit or gooseneck which will run you around $40.

    Looking good so far. I will be interested to see what it looks like in a month or so when everything has settled in. Looks as if one of your seahorses still has his cirri, am I right? I am down to 5 seahorses and so far they are doing well.

    You are right, one still does. They have grown a lot, but 2 are much smaller.

    That is wonderful. I wish I hadn't sold all of the ones that had cirri. None of mine have any. Are you able to get a closer picture of him? The cirri are very interesting to see. Are they branching? My seahorses have grown a lot as well. My largest (and oldest) when he died was 8.5" long from head to tail and 2" from belly to back. He was huge!
