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

I'd like to read a book under your tree.

Well, heck that makes it even better then. Really cool LED build with an awesome scape too. Looks great!

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

BlackHoleVR 04-20-2012 07:23 PM

Sorry for my second request.... :(

Is possible to move the my thread in the tank journals section?? :icon_redf

Ciao and tanks...

Christian

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?

BlackHoleVR 04-20-2012 09:12 PM

Tanks!!
The moss is Taxiphyllum barberi.

Ciao Christian
