Who uses Jebo Odyssea Blue Moon LED Aquarium Light

I'm thinking of buying Jebo Odyssea Blue Moon LED Aquarium Light...



I was wondering what everyone's opinions, of those who have these type of lights, are?

I know from this thread, Jebo's doesn't have a good rep with their lights.

Also, The Hobby Palace is the only place that seems to have them. Anyone recommend any other places?

I've got a lunar light from Jebo ( Odyssea?). Mine is a T8 size light ( though box says T5). It's submersible, and works well enough. Kinda hard to screw up a single bulb. It is super bright, maybe brighter than it should be. I'll send you a pic if you might be interested in buying mine. It's just sitting around collecting dust.

Question semi-DIY LED moonlight strip

I'm thinking of going the semi-DIY route and getting a 24-LED 12V Decorative Blue LED Light Strip for $8.25 (shipped), a 12V wallwart/plug from a thrift store/Salvation Army for $0.99, and voila! LED moonlight to mount under my Coralife Freshwater Aqualight.

Obviously, if I go my route, the LED strip would NOT be submersible. Any thoughts?

I have that exact same 20 LED unit. it's surprisingly well made and water tight for a Jebo, but it's too bright and too blue, so I got tired of it after a while too. I prefer the more discrete white LED built into my Orbits, and for spot lighting I use Aqua Color from Hydor to give my gravel fountain this lava color effect at night.

Yeah, I decided against it and just went with the Current USA leds. Specially with Spypet mentioning they were too bright. Of course over time, it probably would be fine if only 4 bulbs work. LOL

Squirrel, that LED solution sounds like a good idea. If you do it, let us know how it works. I am considering doing it myself.

Anyone try the hydor multi light? It's non-submersible gooseneck. I really don't want to "build one" rather just get one. Also looking at the marina micro led, submersible, you can add lights to it. Figure I need one, maybe 2, on a 30g. Anyone see the hydor (I've seen the Marina, it's ok but doesn't quite swivel as much as I'd like).

Thanks

The Hydor multilight acts more like an LED spotlight. The beam is fairly narrow and focused unlike the Coralife gooseneck LED which has a wide dispersal area.

Thanks, I want dispersal. I'll look for the Coralife.
