  1. I noticed that you have recently updated information on the Aquabar 500 saying that it had been taken off the aquarium LED market. Since I purchased two of these for my aquarium I am concerned as to why.

    • Yes.
      Unfortunately as per my contact in the industry, TMC sold this product to an unnamed third party who then as part of the deal requested sales of this product be ceased to all others.

  2. My tank has been a nightmare since day one. Im possitive not a single person on earth had as many problems as I have expeirenced. After spending over 60k, I still can not get this marine (fish only) tank working properly. However the issue Im begging for your help with is new LED lighting. Can you please recommend the best option for a tank 8ft, by 36×36. I have a canopy and was thinking strip lights, but i have no idea. After reading your article I prefer to take a recommendation from someone obviously more knowledgeable as Im tired of throwing money out. Please help!

    • I do not normally answer questions on this article website.
      Since this is a fish only aquarium, you do not need as much lighting, as few as [8] AquaRay Reef White Strips would work
      Or for more light, [6-8] AquaBeam Ocean Blue np 1500 LEDs would work.
      These are modular and can easily be added to as well.


      For further help, I would suggest this forum that a friend & aquarium keeping guru is present on:

    • Thanks! Im extrmely grateful for your response however, I didnt want to become an expert or consumed with reading articles. Especially since the technology is forever evolving. I was hoping with your experience there was a brnad or two you would recommend. Like if it was your tank, what would you use.

  3. I enjoyed this very valuable article thank you
