Cheap or Really Good Moon Lighting

I am aiming for these cheap portable moon lighting. Has anyone tried any specific moonlighting that isn't fixed on the hood? Any good brands? Any cheap but great ones? Anyone has suggestions?

Check on ebay. You can find plenty of those cheap moon lights there.

Yeah, I will. Any specific suggestions as to the brand or type? Any that I need to keep away from?

I just put these on my 80 gallon FW tank.

They were real easy to put together and they look pretty good. I made a seperate light bar for the LED's to sit in, so they are not fixed on the hood. But I am not sure how they would work out on a SW tank.

Speaking of moon lights... I looked at the pics for the website metallylost gave. And my 35W atinic on my 80gal looks weaker than the moon led's from the site... Will it be alright to use the 35w atinic as my moon light?

I was thinking more of the moonlight that looks like little desk lamps you can twist around. Has anyone used that and does that work pretty well?

I just hooked up three of these to my 105 and moon-lite has officially become my favorite photo period now. I will say that its mainly because of the way corals pop out, so i dunno if you'll be impressed with a FO, but they are very bright, you get really nice defined glitter lines, and they don't affect night time creatures. I thought I had a bunch of pods before these lights, but now I watch them swarm in the water column at night.. As far as use with corals, it make the tank look like a "dark ride" at disney land. HTH

I don't know about the 35W atinic bulbs, but my LED's are not as bright as the pic shows. It isn't really a great camera and I am still learning how to edit them.

Dumb question...This looks pretty cool, but would there be any detrimental affects on a heavily planted freshwater aquarium?
