“The colour is great, the interface is great, the coverage is great. But, most of all, I now have a great light that is native to the APEX ecosystem. Finally!” – Richard Ross
The SKY is a 200w, LED aquarium light, with patented diffuser technology, that smoothly blends all of its 104 LEDs to create a homogeneous field of coral-health-optimized light — no hotspots, no disco-ball effect, no need to augment it with other lights or add-on diffusers — but best of all, none of the harsh shadowing and fractured spectrum found in most other popular lights.
Diffused light just like what illuminates planet Earth. . .
The earth is illuminated by the sun, but not as a single point of light like a light bulb. If it were, there would be harsh shadows and the reefs as we know them would likely not exist. Instead, our planet is really illuminated by our atmosphere, the sky, as a filter and diffuser of the sun’s rays. This results in a homogeneous, bathing of light from all directions. The SKY brings to your aquarium that blanket of natural and life-sustaining light that nourishes earth’s coral reefs.
. . .but with the “look” reefers desire
While a few prefer the natural look the sun and sky provide on natural reefs, most tend to appreciate a more blue-purple light in various degrees. But the desired aesthetic is not universal. So the SKY delivers both. It can be easily tuned to the unique “look” that individual reef-keepers desire, without sacrificing the quality of the life-giving light the corals and other animals need.

All full-spectrum, LED reef aquarium lights mix various discrete LED colours, each one with its own segment of the spectrum, along with whites. Blending all these LED together into homogenous light is where things get tricky. Some light designs bring all the LED very close together so that they blend at the source. The downside here is this very small area of light origination creates the harshest of shadows. Others spread out LED, hoping to mix the various spectrums of the discrete LED on their way to the aquarium – but this leads to the “disco-ball ” or “static” effect we often see in the shadows or on the sand in the aquariums.
The SKY has 104 carefully curated LED, split into four controllable channels, spread across a large surface to maximize the area of light origination and minimize shadowing. Then the SKY uses patented light engine technology that mixes some of the light from all the LED right inside the light panel. Then that light, along with some of the direct light from the LED, all pass through a carefully selected diffuser panel that evens out all the light while minimally reducing the light output. The result is a well-blended light output, that has the same spectrum, nearly everywhere in the aquarium, with minimal shadowing and no disco-ball-effect.
SUCCESS, WITHOUT THE HASSLE
Up until now setting up an LED reef light for success usually meant trial and error moving colour sliders around, asking friends, reading forum posts, and in the end you were basically on your own.
Start out simple…
With the SKY, we have simplified the entire process from connection, to initial configuration, to ongoing operation. Simply connect the SKY to your Apex, or run it wirelessly connected to your mobile device – no Apex necessary.
Then, configure the SKY. Apex Fusion will ask you a series of questions and show you different “looks” for you to choose from – each one curated to provide light spectrum for the growth and health of your corals. From there, simply choose when you want the lights to come on, go off, and that’s it!
…Graduate to Pro!
Don’t think the SKY is just for noobs. There is also access to advanced scheduling features, LED intensity sliders, and an infinite amount of ways to integrate the operation of your SKY with other Apex functions. #ControlFreaks rejoice!
