LED review please
HI, I have an AquaOne PlantGlo, 60cm. I have no idea how good it is or its specs. Can somebody help me? thanks in advance

can someone recommend a LED fixture for 65-75 gallon planted tank with medium to high light plants?
so far i'm leaning toward Finnex Ray2 but the PAR value seems very low with a 24inch depth.

Someone cannot say, oh this plant takes "this much PAR" to grow, because PAR is subjective from LED fixture to fixture.

|BruceF||I skipped through most of that but did you ever give any par values or pur for that matter?|

I recently made this Aquarium LED PAR/PUR video I was hoping I could get some feedback on. It goes into some aspect I believe are a little misunderstood.

sure 350W MH beats out a 20W led setup by sheer brute force and wasted watts..

This illustrates a point with LEDs if you notice the wavelengths they output.
Note how T5's and MH output more light in those needed wavelengths; hence why I wouldn't use LEDs alone but rather as a supplement to MH or T5

Hi all, i bought a brand new TMC 1500 Ultima 6500k DayLight, does anyone have any home PAR readings? the only one i have is the one on the reviews, 148 PAR @ 16",
I would be thankful for some hobbyst review on it since im going to use it at 16" from soil.

|treyLcham||i was just about to buy two marineland dual led light fixtures. My tank dimensions are 36x18x18" and i will have about 2.5in of soil when i put it together. My question is that i think 1of the 36"-48" would do good for low to at most mid so i was thinking in this case that two of them would give me a high range? IS this what i should be doing or should i only be getting one fixture. Also i would like to add that they would be hanging about 1foot above the water. Hope someone can answer this question! It would really help in my decision making before i go out and blow through 500$|

I cannot find the blog that described a DIY retrofit of the stock light on the Fluval Spec V with solderless Cree LEDs.Ă‚Â[censored]
Does anyone recall this discussion or have a recommendation for how this is done on the Fluval SpecĂ‚Â[censored]V?
Your advice would be appreciated.Ă‚Â[censored]
