I will start this review of these two popular LED Aquarium Lights in a different way from my other reviews.
Review: The AAP/TMC AquaRay is one of the leaders in both Reef and Planted freshwater aquarium LED lighting [especially in Europe], with 11 different module fixtures to mix and match depending on species being kept and aquarium specification. Emitters are fully licensed or patented, meaning no other fixtures have these emitters. They also have an exceptional 5 year warranty to back them up, which is far longer than most all other aquarium LEDs.
Here is an excellent video that shows the prospective aquarium LED light owner what they get as per waterproofing with the better LED fixtures over the common Finnex, Ocean Revive, etc. and others:

The lights have moonlighting, sunrise, sunset and a host of other features. The light also incorporates a splash guard (and it’s mildly waterproof) although I have never had issues with water around aquarium lights. The legs can be slid inward to allow for attatchment to custom length aquariums (a very useful feature if your tank isn’t 12, 24, 36 or 48 inches in length!). Once again, the reviews cannot fault this light and there is high sentiment about it’s build quality and lasting durability. Finnex includes their power adapter mid length along the power cord which some users found annoying. However, the Finnex is very affordable and can be Moreover, each LED models from different manufacturers also has its specific luminous efficacy (lumens per watt).
