- Waterproof Full Spectrum LED Fixture 8850.00 - Tunze
Waterproof | Effecient | Full Spectrum
Recommended Spread: 14" x 8"
The Tunze LED system is a full spectrum light that is super easy to mount. Mounting the light is done with a magnetic holder that can hold the light in multiple positions and orientations. The innovative design is fully waterproof and is perfect for refugiums, and nano tanks.
- 5000K to 25000K Adjustable Color Temp
- Magnet Mounting System
- Temperature Sensor
- Aluminum Heat Sink
- Completely Waterproof
- Contact Free Control Sensor
- Absolutely Silent
Suitable for refugiums, soft, corals, and even some hard corals, the full spectrum LED fixture is pushing 14w of lighting power when it is mounted in the air, but when submerged in the water the light will be able to use up to 26w of power. Placing the light under water will help transfer the heat generated from the light to the water, removing some of the strain on your heaters and keeping the light cool, ultimately saving energy.
Controlling the 8850.00 Full Spectrum LED can be done with the included magnets for mounting the light. By holding the exterior magnet (or any other) against the non-cable end, and that will slowly change the spectrum and intensity of the light. As soon as the magnet holder is removed, the setting will be stored in the fixtures internal memory, until it is physically changed again.
The Tunze LED light can also be controlled by the Tunze 7097 or the SmartController 7000.
The simple magnetic mounting system securely holds the light from the center of the fixture or the cable end making it perfect for a sump-based refugium. The aquarium safe magnets will work on glass or acrylic up to 1/2" thick. The long power cable gives you enough distance to put the light where ever you desire, and the power supply in a dry location.

Fuge light, coral light? By Louie on 1/8/2019Louie would recommend this product to a friendNice and compact design, used for 6 months in a pico tank, supported the lps coral just fine and the color had a nice pop. Used in a fuge, as i thought the slim design would be perfect fit in my converted red sea sump. While it did grow my chaeto, it also grew algae on the light itself every half in or so, which is where the red diodes were. Interestingly this showed me how much the red does in fact grow algae, and how much the white/blue does not, as over those diodes the lamp stayed very clean and clear. While the selling point of this lamp was to be able to use it underwater, having to clean the light periodically made me not want to use it.
I guess if the dimensions fit your application i can see wanting to try this out. But myself, after using it, would just recommend a conventional out of water light.
Very pleased By David on 11/5/2018David would recommend this product to a friendThose grows chaeto much better than any of the Home Depot CFL or LED lights I've tried. Cost is a little more than I wanted to pay for refugium lighting but the results have been worth it. Being submersible allows you to position it multiple ways to best light your macroalgae.
Unimpressive By Rod on 7/4/2018Rod wouldn't recommend this product to a friendUsed it as a refugium light. Chaeto growth was unimpressive. It's much brighter submerged but mine only lasted 9 months before dying.
Received unit that does not work and appears used By CB on 6/2/2018CB wouldn't recommend this product to a friendGot unit today plugged in and it does not work. Also seems used because brick has one side of Velcro on it and also has tape on brick with hand writing on it. Plug also has tape with hand writing on it. Will be contacting BRS. Not sure how this gets sent out the door. First issue ever with BRS.
Works good until powered off By TBone on 1/19/2018TBone would recommend this product to a friendNice unit, programs correctly but does not retain the setting when powered down/up. Can't use my Apex to control on/off via power because of this. Anyone else have the same issue?
Love it So Far, Hope is Grows Cheato By ReeferRoo on 3/11/2017ReeferRoo would recommend this product to a friendBought this from another source for an ongoing build because it wasn't originally available from BRS at the time. I even called to see if they could get it and was told they would look into it. So glad to see it here.
I purchased the Tunze Full Spectrum LED unit for the Fuge in my Trigger 39 Sump so I could have something easy to work with for maint. and for not having to worry about it falling in the water. Overall I am impressed with the build of the unit and the ability to change spectrum with the magnetic holder.
Only thing I would ask is that Tunze add another controller magnet so you down have to take the system apart to set the spectrum from red to full color to blue, but in reality once you have it set you shouldn't need to fiddle with it any more. I will have this controlled with my Apex for On/Off.
I will know in a few weeks if it grows cheato but so far very impressed and don't see why it wouldn't!
Excellent light source By Jerry on 2/22/2017Jerry would recommend this product to a friendI just got this today. Setup was quicker than reading the instructions. It fit in my 5 gal. JBJ Pico easily. I have it submerged so there is no reflection and with it sitting just under the top glass it is almost not visible. Just need to setup a timer to control it.
Waterproof but not submersible right?
Will this work with a standard timer?
This will work great with a timer since the settings are stored in the fixtures internal memory, until it is physically changed again. :)
