  1. Question LED lightning for a low-light Planted 40g


    0 Not allowed!
    Guys

    I am setting up a new aquarium and am thinking of doing the following LED Set up

    0.5M 50CM 12V 36 LED 5630 SMD Cool White Hard Strip Light Aluminum Shell End Fixture (http://www.ebay.com/itm/0-5M-50CM-12...-/400570534706)
    Color Temp: 6000-6500K
    Luminous flux: 720-1620LM

    + 240V -> 12V 2A power adapter.

    This will switch on using the following patter: 9am - 11am 13-15 17-22

    Then to help with the photosyntesis

    1x3W LED Blue (http://www.ebay.com/itm/5pcs-3W-Extr...item3cc7d7c60a)

    DC Forward Current: 700mA
    Luminous Intensity: 70-80lm
    Wave Length: 445-450nm

    +

    1x3W LED Red (http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-10pcs-3w...item3a763189de)

    Intensity Type: 90~100Lm
    Forward Current: 600mA~700mA
    Wavelengh : 625nm ~ 630nm

    +

    1x3W LED Green (http://www.ebay.com/itm/10pcs-3watt-...item3a6d708aa0)


    Intensity Type: 90~100Lm
    Forward Current: 700mA~800mA
    Wavelengh : 520nm ~ 525nm

    +

    LED Power Driver

    +

    All the tree RGB LEDs to be fixed on this Heatsink: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181209818271

    Aluminum heatsink cooling
    Strong heat conductivity and heat dissipation
    Oxidation surface treatment
    Fit for about 12pcs 1W or 4pcs 3W LEDs

    These will switch on during the same hours as the Cool White LED Above

    Do you think the set up will be good for Java Fern, Anubias Barteri, Java Moss, Amazon Sword, Vallisneria and Aponogeton Natans?

    I do not plan to use CO2 - or the occasional feeding of CO2 DIY. Will feed nutrients however.

    Anything in my plan which I missed please?

    Any other suggestions?

    Idea is to keep the budget down

    Many thanks for your help

    swords i would think is a no go, and im not sure on the last 2. becareful how much nutrients you dose with low light, its easy to over dose and get algae.

    thanks for your reply. swords seem to need 2W per G .. I guess I won't have that right?

    the last two however seem to be less demanding no?

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...mc&usp=sharing Presented with this data: which set would you buy? The most serious heatsink is the one of sure-display in my eyes.

    All of these come as 3x3W except for keyzone's which come as 5050 strips. The seller doesn't know the Lumens but said they are marked as 4.8W / 100cm2

    Any help is surely appreciated!

    will using red / green / blue together at the same time whilst white switched on too look awkward? i am afraid the light won't mix so it will look as if 3 spot lights are switched on

    would blue and white (so 3 x 3w blue) be more sensible ?
