Each led is attached on 3-5W heat sink and each heat sink is attached on aluminium bar.

Composition of the bottom:
ADA Turmaline BC

ADA New Amazonia

The plant's are:
- Tenellus
- Hemianthus Callitrichoides
- Moss

The tank:


Tank + Leds


Leds detail:



This is the last photo (19/03/2011),
the light led is incredible.... Explosive plant's growth. Zero algae.
Daily ADA fertilization :
- Bright K 1 ml
- Step1 1 ml
- Special light 1 ml
- Green gain 1 drop


What do you think?

Ciao Christian

Each heat sink is build for 5 watt and each led dissipates 2,5 watt. The light is cold!!

Very nice build, I think led lighting is the perfect solution on nano tanks!

If you hit the alert button and ask there, they should move it for you. I've seen them use the alert button this way in the past.

Nice tank. Do you know what kind of moss you have?
