You'll save the money over the year on reduced electric bills, LED's are the way forward for all lighting.

I know that, but the £40 Ikea lights I bought aren't bright enough, so I want pics before I part with another £60 :)

Thats beacuse they are designed for household use so they wont be as bright, some of the new led's are now producing 10000k spectrum.

i have 8 of these on my tank and will be adding another 4 this week,which will be plenty lighting on a 6ft tank,so £120 to light a tank and probably a 10th of the cost to run them as was said earlier in the topic led's are defo the way forward,they give of a superb light i feel :handgestures-thumbup:

looking forward to seeing a tank set up with them in the december issue

The controller powers up to 5 metres of leds, so you could have 3 strips on separate timers
