Innovative Marine's ChaetoMax refugium LED

By Leonard Ho - Posted Oct 12, 2017 09:00 AM
Inspired by science and horticultural grow-lights, IM has designed a new refugium light that is optimal for growing chaetomorpha algae in refugiums with a lot of attention paid to a form factor suitable for this particular application.

Innovative Marine supplied Advanced Aquarist with the following media:

ChaetoMax™ Refugium LED

Designed for maximum macro algae growth, the ChaetoMax™ Refugium LED has taken the proven technology behind indoor horticulture and crafted the optimal spectral recipe specifically designed for macro algae photosynthesis.

Hidden in the ChaetoMax’s slim design are 45 High Efficient, uniformed LEDs. Each LED emitting a specific spectrum level; 420 BLUE, 470 VIOLET, 630 MAGENTA and 660 RED. By eliminating the “Green and Yellow” wavelength from your refugium lighting the ChaetoMax™ targets different parts of a plants cellular growth structure; which means faster growth, higher quality plants and no wasted energy.


Designed for Sumps and AIO Aquariums

  • Hook and Loop AIO Configuration
  • Mounts horizontally or vertically hidden behind your AIO
  • Bracket Modular Mounted Sump Configuration

Small form factor (DIMS: 6.7” x 1.85” x 0.39”)

Low Voltage

45 x 0.2W 60mA LEDs

  • 5 - 420nm BLUE
  • 10- 470nm VIOLET
  • 10- 630nm MAGENTA
  • 20 - 660nm RED

No Heat Transfer
