Hi Guys,

My T5s have packed it in, and I was considering upgrading to LED spotlights both for economy and for the crisp look.

I've read an older thread where people have suggested the 10w spots would be sufficient for a 2 footer(depth wise) in a FW aquarium.

I'm just looking to illuminate a 6x2x2 with no plants and would appreciate if anyone has done this and could post some pics so I could get an appreciation of the kind of power needed or what an LED spot looks like on a tank.

Cheers folks

You could get away with 2 10w spotties, but 3 would do the job very well.

[MENTION=10647]Brodie-S/A-C[/MENTION] I am not sure what you mean about a converter? The spotlights have a LED driver in the back of the unit so you only need to hook them up to 240v and you're done, no need for anything else.
