I'm gonna start up a new low-tech 190gallon/720l tank. (200x60x60) The ramp I got when I bought this used aquarium was no good so I was thinking about building my own. The plan is to use an mdf-board as a ramp, spraypaint it and carve-out holes for LED Downlights. Then Im gonna attach it with metal-wires from the roof and have it floating over my tank. I'm planning on using 4 of these LED downlights. 18 watts, 6500 Kelvin and 1020 lumens each. So a total of 4080 lumens (4 lamps) dispursed over 2 meters.
However, I'm totally new to this and never done this kind of build before so could appreciate any advice
. Remember it's for a low-tech plant whit a few Anubias, Java-ferns and other low demanding plants. I'm only focused on getting a good strong natural light that will bring out natural colors and make it easy to see my fishes.
Some of my concerns:
Will it be dangerous from an electrical point of view? Considering moist and water and that I won't be a waterproof ramp. (I will use glass cover)
Will the lumen output be enough?
Is this kind of light-model optional for Aquarium ramps?
Check out the pictures, hope I made everything clear. Thank yall!
