ok, here's a picture with one of the LED blocks over my new 10gal. i tried to get the picture as accurate as possible, but without a larger apperature, it's difficult. the highlight spots are not as pronounced and the color isn't as accurate. i'll try and get something better....

i just tested two of the blocks over my 85gal...200 kudos to you, malkore. these are perfect. the rays going down into the tank look sweet, the color is great, the ripple effect couldn't be any better, they're small and easy to mount, etc etc. excellent find, i would recommend these to anybody!

wooo! more Kudos for me!

Seriously though, Mr.Burn's photo above is MUCH more like what my tank looks like, only mine's the tiniest bit brighter...but I have 2 of the Lazer LED's.

I don't feel like there's much of a spotlight effect, since the light has to pass through the water which is slightly rippling, and there's a distance of nearly 20" from bulb to sand bed...so it really spreads and diffuses.

Thanks malkore.

Wow. They look great. I can't post a pic because my camera wont focus on it (since there's not enough light).

Looks great, though. Thanks again

Same problem I had boardsurfer...my 4 year old camera didn't take a very good photo, and when I photoshopped it, I ended up increasing light levels.
Glad they worked out for you!

Good find.. I'm getting a couple. This site has them too, $4/each + free shipping. Always looking for better deals!

I bought the parts, and within two weeks the LEDs burned out. The supplier says that the power supply is unregulated - it was putting out 18.4 volts. Anyone else have this problem?

No, mine are still running, 24/7 except during a water change.

My power supply is the one on the web site link you provided. It doesn't look at all like the one in your picture. Have they changed or did you get yours elsewhere?
