So welcome back! I'm Viktor from Green Aqua, And this is a short preview of the current LED lights that we have in our Showroom. The reason I did this video, is that it's very hard to compare the lights... Regarding the colors, and also the light intensity. Color is probably a personal taste. Light intensity is a different story. We are using usually very high light. The plants in the reference aquarium were grown under the ADA Solar RGB for the last 3 months. So we use this as a reference point when we compare it to the other lights. It has 130W power, which I think is the most powerful of all. The Lumen intensity is around 3000-3500 lm. When I am skipping through the different shots of the lights we tested... One of them looks probably stronger, others are weeker. I use the same settings on my camera. 1/50 of a second. And the aperture is 6.3, ISO is 400. I used the same with balance for all shots. The first light in this category is the AquaSky G LED, which is the latest AquaSky from ADA. This is a kind-of-a-green version of the AquaSky. As you can see on the reference-shot, they changed the LED light to highlight the green tones better than the previous model. This light is a 30W light, with 1800 and 2100 Lumen. Here on the side-by-side shot the green looks good. Not as good in my preference as under Solar RGB (in the left), but some people find the Solar RGB a little cold, so the green is kind of a warm green here (on the right). The red of the Rotala H'ra has an orange tone here. Anubias looks great and - on the screen - it has a bit of a yellowish tone. All right! Next one is the AquaSky Moon! It's not a new light, but it was a stronger light after the "normal" AquaSky. It is 1.5x stronger than the original one. It's a 50W lighting unit, 4200 Lumen lighting power. It's really a powerful light for almost all purposes. So how do the color-tones look like? It was a previous model to AquaSky G, so here you will see even more kind-of yellowish colors. On the carpet, on the green plants. You also will see more yellow on the wood parts and on the other plants. The color difference - compared to the Solar RGB (left) - is much more significant. Solar RGB has more of a blueish color. And the Solar Moon has more of a yellowish color tone (right). You can see the difference. The last one is the Twinstar's latest light, the 600S. It's a really powerful lighting unit. It is 45W, and 3100 Lumen on the lighing intesity side. It highlights a lot the reddish colors. You will see that on the comparison shots. It's also one of the widest lighting units, so it covers more area on the small aquarium. On the closeup shots you can see that green is of course different to what we've seen. It is less yellow I would say. More brownish, more red in overall - with the Twinstar (right). I found the same in our Showroom - there are more brownish colors, even with the carpeting plants. We'we seen this on the Riccardia moss. But because your eye is just adapting so quickly to these lights, this is really hard to compare in real-life situations. OK! So the 4 lights next to each other - on one screen. As you can see the difference is much more significant between these. On the top left is the Solar RGB. And the AquaSky G, AquaSky Moon and finally, the Twinstar light in the bottom right corner. I hope you found this clip really useful. All of these lights are capable to grow almost anything here - in the aquarium. Of course CO2 and good care are also required to have the healthiest aquariums at home. All right, thank you Guys, for your attention, and see you in our next video!
