Wow... that's an excellent value. I will use those when I get a bigger driveway.

Well I found another forum where people are using this with great success. Apparently for tanks up to 18" deep you will need one 10 watt light every foot. In my case a 125 I will need either 3 or 4, 20 watt flood lamps. I just need to build a hood.

For tanks over 100 gallons I saw people using the 50W or even the 100W. I just ordered 2 for $45 shipped. Cant wait till they get here Tuesday, I will post pics and everything then.

I've got one of those lighting my 10g. It's suspended about 3.5 inches above the water surface. I wish I had a PAR meter so I could share data with you all. I am growing a whole lot of Java Fern and a bit of Staurogyne repens.

This is why I bought one....this could be a great affordable led option for everyone. Of course there is probably a reason everyone isn't already doing this.

It requires DIY and many rather just buy fixtures and plug them in.

If they burn out or fry on you, good luck actualy getting a replacement.

For the low cost where a 36" bulb T5HO, it would be worth it if it lasts the long usage and never having to replace a lamp. Even spiral CFLs aren't that cheap.

What kind of DIY does it require besides some sort of hanger?
