How to Make DIY for Marine

Unread postby gauravgupta » Thu Aug 25, 2016 1:32 am

My Marine Tank size is 48 x 22 x 24 which have 10 fishes and 3 Anemones.

Right now there are
2 x 4ft blue tube lights
1 x 4ft red tube light
1 x 4ft white tube light

but that is not good enough for Marine fishes and anemones.

I want to replace it with DIY LED system. In market LED chip with 20 to 30000 Kelvin is available but how to make a fixture out of it.

There are lots of information on DIY marine LED available to give an idea what you actually want to achieve. Once you decide on the type of Led for this project we will be in a condition to start discussing on how to do it.

Or you can research on full spectrum multi chip LED for eg.Lumia 5.1 and 5.2 there are many Chinese variants as well. They produce very intense light,I'm currently working on one such fixture will update as soon as the drivers arrive.

Hello

I would like you to have a look into the costing of DIY and also the branded LEDS
I am not against the DIY suff but i always prefer a decent made LED it may be not expensive like razor or kessils but a decent ones like Zetlight works...
its more user friendly and eventually will save time and looks far more better than DIY...
Finally i am Broke but Happy :D
