    Found these guys locally and they are extremely well priced for here considering they Led's
    This is for my tank dimensions
    3w Bridgelux LEDs with heatsinks 5 x 1.4meter
    Programmable controller that simulates sunrise, sunset & moonlight. Preprogrammed
    I most likely will purchase these, or do something similar with T5 tubes.

    I'm not familiar with that fixture, but it sounds good. I like the RBG chips, but my fixtures are not customizable for spectrum. I'm confused lol, how long is your tank?

    My 120g is 5' long with two 4' fixtures. It is shaded on the ends a bit and I plant mostly in the center with low light plants at the ends. It works for me :)

    Yeah, this fixture will be way too short unfortunately. I like the idea of the day night cycle, but I dont think it is all necessary.

    Short Update, after researching, window shopping working out shipping and customs cost I went with a customised LED light fitting I mentioned earlier in the thread.
    I will take some pics, but right now they are in storage. My renovations are almost complete and I am racing on sunday.
    So hopefully from next week onwards I will be able to start getting my tank together.

    How many watts per diode? That light looks amazing! Lots of PAR for your plants! So how long is your tank?

    So you don't run all at the same time? The blue for night time, the white added for daytime? You can program it?

    I am not sure on the watts. It was custom made for my tank dimensions and specifically for planted tank.
    The unit is pre programmed. I can program it as well. It came with a USb port and cable. According to the manufacturer, there is a sunrise sequence, mid day, late aft, sunset and moonlight. Cant wait to see this working

    Awesome! Me too! Get some pics if you can. I don't have any fancy LEDs, it'll be fun to play with :)
