So I just need some questions answered (since I'm new to this type of lighting)...

1. LED's main advantage over traditional lighting is less power consumption & longer life, correct?

2. After an LED lamp goes out the lamp bulbs can be replaced?

3. Why is it that everytime I purchase and LED lamp they never specify the temperature color range? Obviously I'm looking for somthing in the 6500K range but it never seems to give me that info.

I would be more interested to know how long does one LED bulb give off the right waves to actually promote plant growth...?

I just traded out my fluorescent light 36" for a 125 bulb LED that puts out 10k
it looks great but I have to say my plants aren't dying off but they don't seem to be growing as much either.

not sure what to tell you I've had it about 3 weeks so I guess time will tell aesthetically my tank looks cleaner and brighter but as far as promoting healthy plant growth I'm a little concerned
