Simple, Effective, and Powerful. ReefBreeders Photon V2 PRO LED Light fixtures are perfect for almost any reef tank. From Fish Only aquariums all the way up to SPS dominant tanks, the ReefBreeders Photon V2 PRO can do it all!


The Photon V2 Pro uses the long awaited Reef Nexus app for next level control from your smartphone. The Reef Nexus app allows for full cloud based wireless control. The Reef Nexus app simplifies programming, and allows you to choose from a variety of presets and user created programs as well as designing your own custom program.

The Reef Nexus app adds many new control capabilities and is continually updated with new features. One major upgrade is extremely smooth gradient ramping. Your light will automatically and gradually ramp up and down, just like a natural sunrise and sunset. There is a 28 day moonlight cycle built in, which automatically raises and lowers the intensity of your moonlights based on the current moon phase.

You can link multiple Photon V2 Pros together under the same program group, or run them separately. This makes running multiple Photon V2 Pros a breeze.

The Reef Nexus app is fully cloud based. After connecting to your home’s wireless router you can control your Photon V2 Pro from anywhere in the world you’re connected to the internet.

The Photon V2 Pro is also ReefBreeders first product that cooperates with the Coral Restoration Foundation™ to help restore the Florida Barrier Reef, the third largest barrier reef in the world. Every Photon V2 Pro contributes $10 directly to CRF™ on your behalf. You can read more about ReefBreeders and CRF™ here.

The Photon V2 Pro uses 5 watt Cree XT-Es, and 3 watt Cree, Semi, and Osram diodes. There are 6 color channels, so you can have precise control over every color.

The Photon V2 Pro color layout is based on years of reef keeping, research, and consulting with experts and renowned hobbyists on the subject of LED lighting and your corals. We target both chlorophyll and the accessory proteins in coral tissues which aide in growth and color. Our layout is one of the best around and has been for years! We kept the same LED layout for the Photon V2 Pros. If you already have an older Photon V2 or V2+, you can easily upgrade to the latest and greatest with our Reef Nexus Integration Kit.

Each light is constructed of a slim, 100% extruded aluminum heat sink which is robust and built to last, unlike the plastic cases used by most competitors. Each light includes adjustable tank mounting legs as well as the standard hanging set. Alternatively, you can use the T track on top of the light with your own bolts, for almost limitless mounting configurations. We include everything you need to hang/mount your light- no extra hardware required for most tanks.

The Photon V2 Pros 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 Pro includes a 2.4GHz wireless chip designed to connect to our Reef Nexus app.

Please do note that a wireless router with a 2.4GHz signal and internet connection is required.

The Photon V2 Pro is backed in the USA by our full 2 year warranty, which covers parts, labor, and shipping for the entire fixture and controller, both ways. Extended 3 year and 4 year warranties are available for purchase as well.

Product Questions

Can this light be controlled by an Apex system? If so, can this be done wireless, or does it require an add on?
Question by: Derek on Nov 20, 2023, 12:43 PM
The control for this light with an apex would be just on and off plugged in to the energy bar.

Is there any way to use the mounting legs on a rimless tank if you are using a screen top?
Question by: Jay on Jun 7, 2023, 4:50 AM
Hey there,
Thank you for reaching out to us. You would need to make cut outs to go around the legs.

Please let me know if you need anything further and take care!

Can this be mounted on a rimmed tank with the provided tank mounting legs?
Question by: Luke Mitchell on Jan 23, 2023, 5:57 PM
Hey There, thanks for the question! Yes it can!
Answer by: James Johnson (BRS Staff) on Feb 9, 2023, 10:36 PM
Does it interact with a photon V2?

I don’t recall seeing the word pro on my current light.
Question by: Mike Reuter on Apr 11, 2022, 1:53 PM
Thanks for the question! The Pro lights are the newest version with built in chips to use the Reef Nexus app for control instead of the Bluetooth remote of the V2+. If you get the Reef Nexus upgrade chip for the older model, then the two lights could be linked together in the app.
