    The Illumagic Blaze is a sturdy LED light fixture which seems to be well-built and is available in different sizes, as master- and slave units. With the controller built in the master unit, several slave units can be controlled. Next to some pre-set programs which are so easy to set up the user manual is not even needed, the unit is fully controllable with three channels (white, blue and UV). Moonlight, weather conditions changing over the week are options offered by the built-in controller.

    The Blaze fixtures come in a wide array of sizes and in two models: the S-model for saltwater tanks and the P-model for planted freshwater aquaria, both having a different mixture of leds suited to the needs of the inhabitants. Depending on the size, the number of led-clusters built in varies. Each cluster has a power consumption of 50 Watts and harbours 4 cool white, 2 neutral white, 3 blue, 3 royal blue, 2 uv and 2 purple leds, so 16 leds in total which are ran at 50 Watts max. The leds are equipped with 75 degree lenses. The leds are produced by Cree.*The smallest fixture measuring 30 centimetres has just one cluster, the largest model with a length of 120 centimetres features 4 of these clusters.

    I tested the Blaze Advance M30S over my small nano tank. The fan only turns on when needed and is nearly inaudible. The nano mainly contains LPS-corals and some algae next to a pair of tiny yellow-finned red Synchiropes moyeri (?) which has to grow larger so it can be put in my large tank safely. All inhabitants react well to the light and the light looks pleasing to the eye. The fluorescence of the small Catalaphyllia under the blue lights is very nice.

    The fixture comes complete with a hanging kit and acrylic legs for letting it rest on the tank’s corners. Pricing varies on the model. On Illumagic’s website more information on pricing and availability can be found. Currently, Illumagic is looking for distributors around the globe.

    just though that this would be a nice option for nano tanks.

    Smallest unit is 276x150x53, can easily fit above a TL550.

    It got 50W light cluster, better than the TL550 LED hoods, build in controller. But at $629.99, that is R6786 before shipping and taxes. Rather get myself a Radion Gen1. Or go with the TL550 LED hood, its a lot cheaper, but only 35W.

    So my search continues...
