For those doubting cheap SMD LED strips, here's a look at three 18" 5050SMD strips:



Perfect for shallow tanks.

Can't wait to get some new aluminum to create a simple fixture. Flooding the tank in just a bit and am seeding it with some old filter floss.

The same amount of lights on a 10gal:



Leads me to believe I could definitely keep low light plants in even a 10gal with these little LEDs if I just add another strip or two.

The 10gal Deep Blue I've got is going to be set up this week for crypts and Pygmy Cories. Probably Cherry Shrimp, as well.

Now back to 3gal work!
