L.E.D. lighting as a power efficient replacement for T5/T8 flouros

Recommended Posts

With rising power costs it has gotten to the point that just lighting my tanks alone with single tube flouros is costing about $25 per week (24 tanks mostly 3 and 2 foot ).

I have seen a lot of very expensive high output marine L.E.D. arrays but not any low cost high efficiency low to medium output ones suitable for breeding racks and the like - that are cheaper to run than standard flouros at similar output .

Does anybody know of such arrays . or where I can get further information on them ?

Would it be possible to post a pic. showing one or two of them to see what is involved ?

Also - I looked at that website and noticed that most of the leds and strips are , white / cool white / warm white - which did you use ? Further have you had any algae issues with them ?
