This is the unit you have been waiting for to replace your tired old Fluro T8 / T5 lighting unit for your aquarium. Link - Age of Aquariums - WorX Led Super bright 6500K white LEDs and rich 460nm blue LEDs come together in an amazingly sleek fixture that’s dialed-in for freshwater aquariums.

These units are exceptionally bright and really need to be seen in person to be appreciated. Very sturdy build quality and does not feel cheap and flimsy compared to other units on the market. Ben
  2. I'm looking at upgrading from my twin 36w Fluro fitting to a LED light to save some power consumption. Will be used on a 6ft tank that houses frontosa and some gold comps . What can people recommend from personal preference?? Thanks
  3. As the title suggests, are types of LED lights for aquariums suitable for maintaining/growing low light aquarium plants? If so what are the things to look for ie spectrum, LED colour, output etc Pics and first hand knowledge would be greatly appreciated. I am looking to light up a 2ft
  4. We have finally received our shipment of plant dedicated LED lights The lights range in sizes from 45cm all the way up to 180cm (6ft) These light feature a HI and LOW setting with the dedicated switches.. Dee 6500K PLANT LED Lights Don't forget QLDAF members get 10% OFF and shipping is only $7 Australia Wide
  5. Hi all, I have seen many acrylic/glass raisers for LED lights overseas but cant seem to find any locally or online in australia. Anyone seen them before around here and know where i can grab a few? i have checked weebay and no luck. Kinda gives the effect of the aquasky lights from ada.... but cheapo. http://i.imgur.com/4p5PZNV.jpg any help appreciative.. (when you type with capitals but you realise that caps dont workk..... :/) Cheers, kev.
  6. Ok so after being screwed around by an ebay seller and being sent a 60cm light instead of the 90cm one I ordered I am tossing up between the worx 90cm http://www.thetechden.com.au/Pet_Worx_90cm_LED_Light_6500k_36w_p/ba11.htm And the blue planet 90cm track lighting http://www.thetechden.com.au/Blue_Planet_90cm_Tracking_System_POD_LED_Light_p/ei182.htm I like the idea of being able to add more pods and different colors but I don't know how many more I would have to buy to get it where I want it. They are similar in price for the base unit. Has anyone has any experience with either of these lights Or recommendations for other lights around the same price range or cheaper? It is for a 36×18×24 deep tank that I was hoping to have a couple of easy plants in. Also if anyone is selling a decent 3ft led light at a reasonable price let me know. Cheers
  7. Has Anybody used Dee Aquarium Fish Tank Plant 6500k- 6800K LED Light from Aquaholics. Link - http://www.aquaholicsonline.com.au/dee-aquarium-fish-tank-plant-6500k-6800k-led-light-60cm.html I was looking for lights for my 30 inch 3tier racks - they need to grow low tech plants in a 15 inch deep tank Hygrophila difformis , watersprite , mosses , egeria najas . hornwort . That sort of thing . I am currently using Ista lights and Fluval ones dimmed halfway , but the fluval ones belong to other tanks - and these seem to be well priced . I have 9 Ista lights but the price has gone up and Over time I will need 16 more and because I can only buy 3 at a time I really can not haggle . These are substantially cheaper and look to be ok .
  8. Hi All Was just after some information on the Aqua One T8 Led Tubes Upgrading my Aqua One AR980 from fluro's to Leds, saw these on line, but can't find any info on the Kelvin ratings, I want to be able to grow moderate hard plants, On a budget, and can get these locally Thanks
  9. Hi, Thought i would start a post and write a review of my experience on the 200cm LED i just ordered from makemyled.com.au as there doesnt seem to be many reviews on the internet about them. I have been looking for a replacement for my T8's for a few months and could not settle on one specific brand or length as it was all a bit overwhelming. I have always had trouble growing plants even with Co2 and ferts. I managed to borrow a growufo off my friend for a few months and the results were incredible, you could see the daily growth in the plants but the light colour was not natural as they are a very powerful light in one spot of the tank. After months of searching and reading and searching and reading and going back and forth from different brands i managed to stumble upon makemyled.com.au Going through all the options and making my LED was simple and Fred from makemyled was more than happy to answer all my emails in a timely fashion. I chose to tweak the lights from the ones makemyled suggested in there system planner as my plants loved the growufo so much. i came up with the below configuration Total cost with accessories is $563, (postage is free at the moment) a little on the high side, but to not have to worry about changing T8 bulbs every year was enough to make me want to purchase an expensive system. My Tank is a 6x2x2 (planted) and stocked with Australian Rainbows, 1 redtail black shark (soon to be sold) and a pleco (6cm's at the moment) I didnt need anything special like night and day timers, all i needed was dimmers for each strip in case i want to lower the red or blue strips. Order/Paid Date: 17/3/15 Expected Delivery date: 20/3/15 Delivery Date: 24/3/15 SYSTEM ORDERED: I customzied the suggested lighting as i wanted a few more red and blue LEDs for plant growth Professionally packaged and shipped via TNT, i dont trust many companies who deliver things but for its size and fragility it didnt have a dint in the box at all so a big tick for TNT on that one. UNPACKING Dimmers: Lights: each strip packaged in own plastic sleeve Power Pack + Power Cord: Sorry took the power pack out of the plastic before taking photo Dimmers + Brackets to attach to hood: I originally thought attaching to the hood would be perfect for me but i thought differently when i got it delivered as i am forever taking on and off the hood. SETTING UP Setting it up was a breeze, just connect all the connections together and your done The tubing is made of half Aluminium to draw heat away from the LEDs and a plastic cover. My system is powered by a 300w power supply. There are smaller power supplies available for 1/2/3/4/5 foot systems. LEDs are Taiwan Epistar 3W with a rated life of 50,000 hours. Length of each strip is 200cm and the diameter of the tubes is 3cm There are accessories for whatever position you need your light in. Tank with no hood: Under hood: I decided to make my own wood brackets to hold onto the lights as i didnt want to keep disconnecting them when the hood came off (not fully complete yet, still need to add some wood for a bit of height off the glass) GROWTH IN PLANTS - 28th MARCH 2015 - DIY Co2 + LIQUID FERTS

  12. We did a direct comparison between the Fluval Fresh and Plant 2.0 and the Fluval Aqualife Plant LED and the Fluval Fresh and Plant 2.0 comes out a easy winner and price wise it is perfect. When I did the Youtube I did have my phone on Auto and when I pressed the Fresh 2.0 to reduce the light my tricky phone decided to adjust the lighting on the phone and although it does not look like a big change it does make a big change in real life. For pricing and availability on the Fresh 2.0 here is a link to our web site. Lighting

  14. What can I say, Fluval have done their homework on the new range of the Fresh and Plant LED lights. The previous Aqualife and Plant were great lights but they have set the mark and come forward with some great improvements. I have been waiting for these lights to hit Australia since I saw the release in the US market and I could not wait. Normally a new model will have a bit of new shine to an older model but they have gone to town. They only landed in Australia in the last couple of days and we are expecting our stock Tuesday - I am hoping for Monday. So what is the big deal? Well I will leave the most impressive for last but here is what they have done... They have improved the lumens with up to 50% on the previous and naturally this has a small effect on increasing the wattage - nothing major but there is an increase. They have gone to a nice neat soft touch control on the top of the light to give a better personal experience on lighting and making the most of their 5 unique LEDS with full spectrum exposure. You can still rely on the German Engineered light with 3 year warranty. The lights are IPX7 waterproof, splash em - no problem, even accidentally drop it in your tank and you will still be safe. On the two foot model they have not changed the 24"-36" but they have catered for what so many people were asking for on the 36" light. The old model was 36"-46" which was just short of fitting on a 4 foot tank and so many people would say to me "wouldn't it have been nice if it went to 48" and fitted on a 4 foot tank" Well they must have heard as the new model is 36" extendable to 48" and will now nicely fit on a 122cm 4 foot tank. Thanks Mr Fluval. Finally and as I am a gadget person they have added WiFi compatibility - but do not get too excited just yet - it is a "ADDITIONAL ACCESSORY (AVAILABLE SEPARATELY):" and eagerly await its release. Not only will it work on the Apple OS it will also work on the Android OS. If you get too excited and get two of the 2.0 lights - yes it will control two lights. Can't wait for these to rock in the door and just a couple more sleeps... Oh and if you thought that all these massive improvements would come with massive increase in price - your wrong...even with the Aussie dollar doing as poorly as it currently is... Big thumbs up from me....nice work Mr Fluval. For more information please visit the two links below to our website and remember - if your keen pop your email address in the top right hand side where it says "email me when in stock" so we can shoot you an email as soon as they are available and be one of the first to own the new Fluval Fresh and Plant 2.0 2 foot Fluval Fresh and Plant 2.0 Full Spectrum 46w LED 36"-48" 3 foot Fluval Fresh and Plant 2.0 Full Spectrum 46w LED 36"-48"

  20. I have a six foot tank with a hood (A Gary Maher tank). I saw an awesome LED light system at Pet Barn Coomera in their Altum Angel tank that simulated storms and everything (really cool) - anyway, they said that there are no LED systems suitable for people with hoods on their aquariums. I found this incredible as I thought LED was in fact cooler (generated less heat) than the T5 lights I currently have running? So guess my questions is, are there any LeD systems suitable for freshwater planted tanks that have hoods?
  21. Hi Guys, While doing a water change yesterday, I inadvertently unplugged my led lights from the power board while they were still turned on. After I realised what I'd done I plugged them back in, but now find that the light won't turn on. Have tried leaving the whole unit turned off for a period, unplugged for a period, changed outlets, there was no water spill involved so I'm not sure what I've done. Have I done something fatal to the led lights by unplugging them while turned on? Look forward to any advice on this one. Cheers, Chubb.
  22. Hey guys I have a led light that I wish to put inside a hood. But seeing as it gets really hot just sitting on the tank I want to look at ways of cooling it and have come up with using PC fans run of a old PSU I had lying around. now my question is what way should I place the fans, pushing air into the hood or pulling air out? due to space restrictions I will have to mount them in the top of the hood above the light. thanks Edit: I should also mention that the back of the hood is open
  23. Here are a couple of pics of the three lights on my 60X48X47cm Tank and the three lights used. The first picture is of the Kessil Light $319 The second picture is of the Fluval Aquatic and Plant $221 The third picture is of the Ista Cree $$145 The three technologies of each light with Kessil Dense Matrix (32watt), Fluval Multiple Led (25watt) and Ista Cree (14.7 watt) This will show the aesthetics of what each light will produce - unfortunately this does not take into account the spectrums/growth produced from each light.
  24. as above guys im looking at the 2ft led lights aquaholics has for offer, it will be going on a native rainbow display tank with basic plants. they all seam alright. but is the RGB miracle that good in bringing out colours? mainly looking at the [h=1]CICHLID GLOW RGBW MIX CONTROLLABLE LED AQUARIUM LIGHT 60CM 2FT[/h]give a fellow fish addict some help
