Sorry I missed this ^. Pretty much everything is in the basement with the sump and I only have a few wires coming up thu the floor.
I haven't done much of anything to the setup in quite some time...until now. Since LED
's seem to have become the next best thing in lighting, I decided to give them a try. I wasn't 100% sure I would like them so I only bought 2 units to try as opposed to the 3 MH
's I had been running. My plan was to keep the center MH
and use the LED
's on each end.
There are seperate power cords and switches for the blue and white.
The unit has 30 white LED
's and 25 blue LED
's. They are 3w LED
's running at 2w. Total power consumption, including the fans is 120w.
Only blue on.
Only white on.
Left side hung in canopy. I hung them at about 6" above the water line.
I did some PAR measurements and I am impressed. They are about equal to Iwasaki 15k bulbs (which have higher PAR than many 250w bulbs) and they beat 250w XM 20k bulbs by quite a bit. I will be ordering the 3rd unit soon.
