The Photon V2+ breaks away from the ugly “Black Boxes” of the past, boasting high-end hardware with a beautiful slim profile at an affordable price.


The Photon series is ReefBreeders flagship line of lights, and the second generation of the Photons brings many features you would expect from higher priced fixtures, backed by a 2 year warranty. Over the last several years, Reefbreeders has become one of the most popular and respected names in reef lighting thanks to the excellent quality of their fixtures and great customer support.



  • Quality LED diodes from Cree, Semi LED & Osram
  • Extremely low-profile
  • Nearly silent active cooling
  • Multiple mounting options included
  • Wireless Control
  • 2 Year Warranty


For most of us, the results we see in our tanks with coral coloration and vitality are the first thing we judge a light by. The Photon 24-V2+ uses 44x 5 watt and 3 watt LEDs carefully chosen from top manufacturers like Cree, Semi LED, and Osram.  The Photon V2+ delivers excellent coloration to our tanks and is adjustable through six channels to get the color balance that's perfect for you. By going with quality diode manufacturers instead of cheap knockoffs, you can have confidence in your fixture to provide the best spectrum for your corals. The Photon LED arrays have been refined through years of research and hands-on reefkeeping to deliver not only great colors, but to target photosynthetic spectrums and drive healthy growth.


The heart of the fixture is the LEDs, but we want to create living works of art in our home, so we also want a fixture that won't detract from our aquariums. Unlike most cheap black box manufacturers that we're used to seeing, Reefbreeders uses a 100% extruded aluminum housing instead of a steel case, so you don't have to worry about your fixture rusting around your saltwater tank. They also include mounting hardware for wire suspension or tank mounting legs. There are also T track slots on the top for alternative DIY mounting solutions. The Photon V2+s are cooled with silent, temperature-controlled fans. The Air moves over the heat-sink and never comes into contact with the internal electronics, keeping all components cool and dry.


The new Photon V2+ includes a wireless hand-held controller that can program multiple Photon V2+ units at the same time. Programming your light cycle is extremely easy. Just program the intensity you would like for each hour during the daylight and night time cycle. You can program the light to change all 6 channels every hour for a sunrise, sunset, and moonlight simulation. The new smart controller will then take that hourly program, and automatically break it into 10 smooth ramping points for more realistic transitions between day and night. Because of the WiFi signal the controller uses, you can even program your lights through a canopy while comfortably seated across the room.

Product Questions

In your video review of the light, it states the cool blue channel is peaking at 459nm, but this light is advertised as having 480nm diodes. Which one is correct?
Question by: Brady Bolin on Jan 20, 2022, 8:08 PM
Hey Brady, thanks for the question! It looks like the manufacturer states that the light comes with 12x 480nm Cool Blue (3w Cree XP-E).
Answer by: James Johnson (BRS Staff) on Jan 21, 2022, 11:16 AM
My tank measures 23 7/8" outside to outside. It is a 24" cube. Will this light fit with the mounting legs?
Question by: Paul Ashton on Dec 12, 2021, 3:58 PM
Thank you for your question. The Photon 24-V2+ is a great option for a 24" cube and they legs will work with on it.

Would one photon 24 be an okay size over a innovative marine 30 long to save money or would the 32 be the better option??
Question by: Brandon Murphy on Dec 6, 2021, 3:33 PM
I would recommend the 32 for the Innovative Marine Nuvo 30L as the tank is 35.43 inches long. The 24 would cause considerable shadowing on the sides.
