JBJ introduces the NANO-GLO LED to upgrade your existing Nano Cube
into an In-Tank Refugium. The NANO-GLO LED refugium light boasts 4
powerful high intensity LEDs that evenly distribute light for macro
algae, and aid in the removal of unwanted phosphates and nitrates. Its
innovative design utilizes suction cups to attach to the rear wall of
the aquarium for mobility and secure placement.
The NANO-GLO was specifically designed for the 28g
Nano Cube CF QUAD aquarium, which is sold with a transparent filter
basket. But the design is so versatile that it can be used to light any
small nano aquarium that usually cannot accommodate top lighting due to
space constraints and fully enclosed canopies.
Refugiums provide natural filtration as
algae grows in a controlled area with light and water flow to export
unwanted nutrients such as phosphates and nitrates. They also help
stabalize the pH and oxygen levels consistently throughout the day by
absorbing CO2 gas during evening hours when the main tank lights are
off. And they are the perfect way to grow natural food sources that
propagate and feed the aquarium naturally.
These small LEDs produce an incredible
70 lumens each while only consuming 1 watt per bulb. The new higher
output design still creates minimal heat and lasts an amazing 40,000
Filter Basket Layout
First Chamber Place a small ball of Chaetomorpha algae which should fill up half the chamber. This will provide room for growth.
Second Chamber Place the activated carbon
bag to help remove dissolved organic compounds. Replace monthly as odor
and discoloration of the water can occur.
Third Chamber Place the
mechanical sponge to prevent any loose strands of the Chaetomorpha algae
(spaghetti algae) from entering the pump column. This will also help
trap particulate matter and free floating debris.
Lighting the Refugium
Since pH and oxygen levels generally
drop once the main tank lights are turned off, we suggest running the
NANO-GLO on a reverse daylight cycle. This simply means to have a timer
turn on the NANO-GLO LEDs once the main tank lights are turned off. The
NANO-GLO should be turned off prior to the main tank lights turning on

I bought this on a whim in that I needed a fuge light and the LED technology piqued my interest.
I was VERY surprised when it arrived as it is EXTREMELY small. But don't let its small size fool you. HUGE light from a little fixture. My fuge is 18" deep and the light completely reaches the bottom of the tank. You get a super bright light from the four LED’s and almost no heat.
I'm impressed with not only the performance but at a $50 tag, the price. I would suggest this little guy to anyone with a refugium or nano.
