Subscribed! thinking about doing either LED or a DIY MH/CFL (ADA Style) for my 150 cant wait.
A pure LED light is much better than any alternative, if you can swing the cost. And, DIY LED lights can be whatever you want them to be - the available LEDs today can do just about anything you would want on a planted tank. DIY reduces the cost down to be competitive with most non-LED lights.
