With individual parabolic reflectors designed with CAD software that are produced from 99% reflective aluminum delivered the T5 light into the tank and doesn’t scatter the light and keeping almost all of it shining into the tank. All Aurora fixtures include an active heatsink with variable speed fans that keep your T5 lamps and LED lights running at optimum temperatures.
With the Futura App the Aurora is one of the easiest hybrid fixtures we have controlled. Simple sliders and multi-point graphing with over 1440 available points allows for easy programming on a computer or android device. T5 tubes are controlled in pairs allowing for gradual increase in the light emitted into the tank. There are also 3 channels of LED control to fine tune the overall optical color that you see as well as low moon and actinic lighting. The LEDs also provide a slight shimmer to give that natural sunshine appearance while the T5 lamps provide full coverage with very little shadows for those acros.
Each 75watt LED group features three independently-programmable LED channels with up to 1440 available set points per 24 hour phase. Each channel is capable of 0-100% dimming.
LED color channels include:
- Full Spectrum White
- Royal Blue
- Violet- TRU-UV sub 400nm
- All LED’s are zero-loss 120deg Optic-Free 5w CREE X-Series controlled by high performance linear drivers.

Great fixture! By Paul on 11/23/2016Paul would recommend this product to a friendHave been running this over my 40 gallon max e red sea for the last 4 months. I am running at blue plus in all 4 T5 sockets. Controllability is great but it is not as seamless as some of the newer led fixtures out there like the radeon and ai hydra. This is due to a clunky java interface (on my microsoft surface) I can not critique the android app as I have not tried that.
You can only control 5 channels: (2 are the T5s grouped forward and back)
3 are led (the whites, RB, and Blue). I have a pretty mixed reef with primarily sps. I have to tune the led's way down to about 30% to keep things from bleaching and burning. It is very powerful! Great build quality but very heavy so keep that in mind when considering mounting. All in all great light but the next generation will likely improve on many of the shortcomings.
