I'm building a new plywood tank and I'm looking at lighting options.
I made the thing 48 inches wide so I could mount some t12 LED bulbs inside just under the top supports, but in a brain fart moment I made the outside dimensions 48 inches instead of the inside, so I'm looking at other lighting options.
I've got four top supports, two on the sides and two 18 inches in from either side, leaving me with three holes that are about 9 inches wide and 33 inches deep, Which coincidentally leaves me with wood at the exact locations to mount a 32 inch LED truck light over each hole, like these here: 32 inch LED light strip
Anyone played with these before? They pretty obviously aren't really 180W (probably closer to 60W), and the ratings thrown around ranging from 13000 to 15000 lumens is almost certainly a lie, but they're probably better than the 30 inch Beamsworks aquarium lights
? They claim to be 6500K range, so they might
not be complete garbage as tank lights for my 28+ inches of water depth?
I was planning to order a few brands, run a PAR test on each, and return whatever is garbage for a couple dollars restocking fees, but I figured I'd see if anyone had used them at all before?
