ONE LIGHT PLATFORM - many applications like aquariums, coral grow, horticulture, indoor plant grows, algae grow, etc
Lights are designed and tested with success, but funding is necesarry for promoting further this platform.
From its conception, Barracuda platform was designed specially as a LED alternative or add-on to T5 systems which are still preferred by many hobbyists. With ultra slim profile dimensions and length of 500 mm, passive cooling and multiple LEDs spread evenly on full length of fixture, provide all advantages of a LED system and all of a T5 system in one design.
Dimensions (LxWxH) - 500 x 100 x 35 mm; The high end components together with optimum design choices provide maximum efficiency and lifetime of the system. Ranging from ultra-actinic and full spectrum reef light to full spectrum of natural sunlight for freshwater tanks and even further to plant-grow & horticulture spectrum, together with modular mounting and control systems makes the Barracuda series a truly all-round solution. Custom spectrum and powers available on request;

I am a passionate aquarium hobbyist living in Belgium, with many years experience as R&D LED lighting designer for some of the most high-end and demanding industries around the world(aerospace, military, medical, hi-tech research, etc). Being a dedicated DIY-er I made over years different projects for my tanks, some detailed on different forums where they were highly appreciated. Also, during years, I had many other ideas for various lights and systems which I never brought to life due to various reasons.
Despite all passion involved, often a DIY project can be frustrating: lack of knowledge and experience, messy planning, expensive to prototype parts, dozens of suppliers to order from small bits and parts and so on. In this way most people go away from what they would like to have as DIY projects to what is commercially available, even if doesn't meet all their requirements and needs. This is how idea of AbyssWare came into my mind. Using my professional expertise together with experience I gained over years keeping freshwater planted tanks, reef tanks and reptiles, to provide a one stop resources for people who want to use ready made and / or fully custom products.
AbyssWare's philosophy is to design ultra-modular, platform based products and systems, fully customizable with superb quality and maximum reliability - in this way each customer can have exactly what needs. If you don't know exactly what your requirements are, AbyssWare is happy to support you to choose the best solution. If you know really well what you need, but cannot find exact match in whole range of products, AbyssWare is happy to customize products for you, whatever spectrum, power, type of LEDs, control or mounting system - and yes, even the color of covers and decorative elements on lights can be custom. And to go even further... if you have an idea, a dream light system or just need a different LED puck for you DIY project, AbyssWare will design it and even produce it for you.
