    Default LED lighting for a Nano


    0 Not allowed!
    Hey everybody,

    Just curious if anybody knew any good LED fixtures I could use over a nano tank. Size wize it'll be a 20 gallon with the back ~6-8 inches sectioned off to hide the equipment

    I'm also kicking around doing a diy build so that I can have my color mix and have two dimmable channels

    Any links are appreciated!

    Cheers
    55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013

    20g Long --> currently concoting a build plan

    Check out the journal to follow my 20g SW tank

    I seen people use two of theses, please note you can buy other bulbs for other company with other led options. DIY be best for own color control.

    20 long and I'm hopefully spending under 200 on the lighting but we'll see the budget hasn't been fully worked out yet

    Any corals? Dimensions?

    If so, DIY would be your best/cheap option. It can be really simple build or I can tell you how to make it complicated but 100% custom DIY

    Dimensions are 24 x 12.5 x 12.5

    And I'm thinking of doing a pretty custom DIY build glarior haven't finalized the plans yet but we'll see I'm trying to figure out how many LED's and what mix I want lol

    for SPS... ~16-18 LED's. You can have a full spectrum or just blue/whites. I personally like the full spectrum. That is what I am working on now.

    If you an electronics person you can build your own touch screen controller and use $5 meanwell drivers and be able to dim them.

    So many options I can go on and on about.

    What ideas are you thinking?
