    Has anyone done any investigation on the new plasma light fittings? There is an advert in the Coral Mag for the Seashine light series for aquariums. They claim to provide 180% higher PAR values than 10,000K 400W metal halide aquarium lights and up to 500% higher PAR than standard MH's.

    There is a brochure available at Stray Light Optical Technologies with full specs and performance graphs.

    I am communicating with them with regard to pricing.

    Website says $1035 so not actually that bad if you compare to an ATI powermodule

    58 luminens per watt is not very efficient.
    The new cree xp-g LED gets 139 lum/watt

    the plasma lights are extremely yellow, so yellow that if you add blue light all it does is make it green.

    they do say however the light gets blue'er the more you turn it down, but really then what is the point?
