  1. .Just about to put my Christmas order in with the wife and a 120cm WorX LED is high on the list. In the original announcement post [MENTION=2383]ageofaquariums[/MENTION] had mentioned they were setting up a planted tank with it - just wondering how it's coming along and what your thoughts are a couple of months down the line regarding its use in low-medium light planted tanks? And from anyone else using them I'd be happy to hear about it...

  3. Do led lights requiring periodically, we have a nano reef tank and a few of the corals(a hammer and zoas) have started to look a bit poorer than usual and the acan has died. Water parameters have been very similar for the last 12 months and the only change has been it went 4 weeks without a water change instead of the usual 2 weeks but aall parameters were still close enough to the same. Everything it he tank has been in there for at least the last 6 months
  4. I have seen a couple of posts recently using these mainly on smaller planted tanks tho. So thought I would show how they look in an 8x2.5 I wasn't after an abundance of lighting so purchased a 5x10w set of the LEDs off eBay then realised when about to install them I had forgotten about the cross brace for the canopy, after debating whether to purchase a 6th I settled for 4 and am quite happy with the level of lighting. I know it wouldn't cut it for a planted tank tho it would be easy enough to wire in and position another 10 in the hood, better yet use 20/30 or 50w units. Sent from my who cares using Tapatalk

  6. Out of intrest is anyone growing plants under LEDs yet? If so which LEDs do you use ? How have growth rates been comapred to T5s ? I'm possibly due for some new lighting soon so I want to make an educated guess ? My new tank is only 30 x 12 x 15 how many watts would you reccomened (I inject pressuired Co2) Thanks
  7. As the title says I'm going to change our planted tank over to LED lights around Christmas. For the lower power usage, lower heat, potentially better growth, consistent light output and probably one of the most important; not having to buy replacement bulbs every year! At this stage I don't really want to find myself in another year looking at redoing a job because I did a less than ideal job the second time. At this stage I have narrowed my options down to: a) Building a DIY light fixture with heaps of bells and whistles (Built in Electronic Timers, Moon Lights) using LED flood lights as the emitters Plus - Cheaper - I know the Flood I am thinking about using work well (plants like them, at least when new) Con - Not guaranteed to last (light output/spectrum) - High Light Spread from light (not focused into the tank) Buying a nice setup that works well for other people with warranties and etc Plus - Almost guaranteed to work - If properly selected and researched - Light Focused well into the tank Con - More expensive I am looking for opinions, experience (especially as how LED flood lights last over a year or more) and recommendations as to what works for people.
  8. Hey guys just came across these on Ebay and was wondering if anyone has bought or seen these and has anyfeedback on them. I was thinking about getting one for my flowerhorn tank? Any help would be great, Cheers! Sorry forgot to post link http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Led-aquarium-light-Blue-White-90cm-3ft-/140882223146?pt=AU_Pet_Supplies&hash=item20cd3c202a&_uhb=1#ht_2820wt_1054
  9. Now that’s funny hey,there is no competition, the resistance lighting falls on its face on so many levels. Heat, length of time between bulb/tube changes and they are only two reasons LEDs make them all useless in comparison!! These 2 foot 10 watt fluro replacement tubes that we got some months back are similar to our last china purchase in July last year, but these ones are cooler, the diodes are only quarter watt of cool white and blue, but they have tiny optics on each diode or 60 degrees, how cute is that. They are only for our algae areas and my sought fish only tank,but how cool are LEDs,they are varied and so good in so many ways, it makes me think, how the hell did we do with out them.
  10. Check out this link, it might be helpful on actual use, results and importing your own LEDs from china. http://southeastqueenslanda.aforumfree.com/t940-led-lighting-for-reef-aquariums-tried-and-tested-information-and-what-are-they
