  • LED Lights

    It's the pest again. I was trying to find out from members what is a good website to purchase LED's. I'm thinking about switching from my metal halide lighting.

    Now I'm going to be picky because my lighting structure works for me. I want one that is 72 inches long that I can place on my retractable hood that I currently have my metal halides on. I do not want to mount into the ceiling. This is in my rec room where I have alot of guests and I have recessed lighting already in the ceiling.

    You know I'm a big fan of the AI-SOL Blue... http://www.aquaillumination.com/sol/

    I would think they could be attached to a frame simular to what you have now.

      I have seen Mike's SOL lighting and they are kind of cool. It all depends on how big your tank is and how much you are willing to spend. I really like the looks of the Ecoxotic Panorama 24" fixtures but they are pricey.

        Heres a good variety of fixtures. At the pace technology is moving these prices are bound to fall especially since the no name fixtures are starting to use cree leds. I like the MAxspect simply because of the features and price. It all depends on what your looking for and how much your willing to spend.

        Here's one thats a complete fixture and its ONLY 4000$$ lol

          I agree with Mike. I have the AI-SOL Blues as well and I have mine on moveable tracks. Althougth mine are mounted to the ceiling, they can also be mounted under a hood. Here is a link to a thread that gave me the idea. I have alot of versatility that allows me to adjust my lights left, right, front, back.

            Man, those T- tracks are a great idea! Thanks for sharing! I'm going to rig something up like that myself.

              I have the AI-Sol Blue's as well and they work great. Not knowing how big your canopy is, you should be aware they reccomend having the lights a minimum of 12" off the water. You can purchase different lenses for the lights to help with that though.
