I have a AquaRay GroBeam Ultima 1500 (attached spec).
I have the ability to dim these lights, is there a way of working how if any by how much i should dim these lights for an optimum balance of light vs plant/algae growth?
My tank is a 155L cube.
Hello everyone, I'm back with another subject I'm not well versed in... Lighting. So here's the situation: my brother works in custom lighting, and has a friend who build horticulture grow lights for a living. Since they're close friends, he offered to build me an LED fixture for a low price...
I'm looking at installing LEDs in my 55 gallon hood. The plan I've drawn I want confirmation on that it makes sense and can't be improved by smarter people than I.

Hi everybody! My name is Alessio and I'm from Italy.
I read a lot about this, but I still need your help because I really want to make my own LED fixture, so I'll appreciate every help you can give me.
I have a new tank, it's about 43x19x19 inches (110x50x50 cm) and I want to set...
I am getting ready to switch my 75 gallon over from 2 T5HO to LEDs and need input from all the LED experts out there who have successfully converted over.
First, about my setup:
-This will be retrofitted in an existing canopy where the T5s are currently.
-I have 3 heatsinks totaling 8x40x3 that...
I decided to post up my DIY aqurium LED tutorial.
This is not meant to be an advisement, i just want to share it so other could find some use of it.
I will also be posting other tutorials like making an underwater waterfall.

Hey all, I'm at a crossroads here with my 6gal Edge. I did a standard me thing, and went overboard when I found this great looking tank. I could not just have any old edge, I needed it to be a high light tank! So, I went and upgraded the lights with 4 cree xp-gs (as seen in my sig) and added...
I am just about to complete my DIY LED build using the RapidLED 36x CREE XP-G LED kit. I am driving 32 Cool White and 4 Warm White LEDs (using the 80 degree optics) at 1000 milliamps as well as the RapidLED Moonlight kit (4x Blue LEDs) at between 150 and 350 milliamps (they have no...
I wanted to build an LED light fixture that would fit a 2-gallon tank, support demanding species like Hemianthus callitrichoides, and be affordable. I had limited DIY experience, but I found components from modularled.ca that made the project tractable. Photos below show the fixture and diagram...
Hey everyone, I'm planning on converting my 95 litre, heavily planted, high tech tank currently using a 20W T8 to a custom DIY LED setup. Realistically I don't want to exceed 45W, I've been looking at using Cree XP-G 3W's as I've heard good things about them. Roughly speaking how many would you...

Each led is attached on 3-5W heat sink and each heat sink is attached on aluminium bar.
The light ia active from 3/03/2012 (view first 3 photo).
Hi all, this is my first "instructable" that I have done, but I thought someone out there may find my experience useful when putting together a LED mod for their Fluval Edge.
First, a little background. I have scoured these forums for the past 2-3 months now, learning everything I could about...
Long time lurker, first time poster. I recently bought a Fluval Edge 1st gen 6gal. So far, all I have setup is my hardscape (Iwagumi style) and hooked up CO2 (paintball with Aquatek reg into filter per...
