- Designed for Sumps and AIO Aquariums
- Efficient LEDs
- Mounting Bracket or Hook & Loop
- Small Form Factor
- No Heat Transfer
Maximize your algae growth within your refugium to help absorb nutrients like nitrate and phosphate, that you can harvest and export. Over the past few years, specific spectrums have been found to be very beneficial where others are just wasting light. Certain spectrums that fall between 400-470nm along with 620-680nm target the plants cellular growth structure, leading to faster growth, with no wasted energy.
The ChaetoMax has 45 high-efficient LEDs packed into a super slip housing. Innovative Marine carefully selected LEDs in the proper spectrum for rapid algae growth. You can add the ChaetoMax to almost any sump or AIO aquarium with its dual mounting options. Either use the included bracket to mount the refugium light directly to the rim of your sump or tank, or use the included hook & loop pieces to securely attach the light to the side of your refugium.

It just works By Old Salt on 2/19/2018Old Salt would recommend this product to a friendGot this after a recommendation from one of the BRS staff. So far, it works like the proverbial charm on my IM Nuvo Fusion 10. After cycling, it took the nitrates down to near 0 in only two days. Have to clean the chaeto out of the refugium chamber at least every 10 days.
Nice product, but you might need more than one By Chad on 11/19/2017Chad would recommend this product to a friendReally like the application here, I have now moved the chaeto to the filter area of my nano, before I used a phosban reactor 150 so water was pumped outside my nano. I am happier having the chaeto in the nano aquarium’s filter area as these can be Velcro mounted to the aquarium and got rid of the pump going to the phosban reactor. Two downsides, 1) that there is no way, a single one of these will out compete the main light for the aquarium tank to grow the chaeto faster than display tank algae, I’ve just added a second one of these, 2) the cord is hard wired from the plug to the light, the plug was too large to fit through the hole of the stand, I had to make modifations, they should have spliced the cord to connect through aquarium stands. Build quality otherwise seems great.
I have a small chamber in my sump that measures 16”x6”. Would this work?
My sump is made from a 30g long and the refugium section is 12”l x 12”w x 8”high (deep). Would this work or do I need something stronger? I will be running ATI 4 bulb on top of my 75g with 2B+ & 2C+
Hope this helps!
Will this work for a 20g sump?
Hi I’m about to start new build and am hoping to go with Triton base 7 method would this light be suitable for refugium 3 foot long 18 inches high and 18 inches wide
That is size of refugium section of sump
What is the PAR at 12 inches? Thanks
Will you be doing a review on this soon ?
Can I mount this to my acrylic sump - (Horizontal Lip)?
The included bracket will not mount to a euro-braced. They do also include velcro strips for attachment to other smooth surface, which would likely allow for easy attachment to your rim or the side of the sump.
Have a great day!
