After some thought
I was wondering if it is possible and beneficial to use regular LEDs for regular lighting... this is for a 45 gallon brackish tank with Java ferns (which need no hardcore lighting). I currently have a regular 36'' florecent on my tank, but am replacing the hood and the thought of using a couple of white LEDs to replace the old flourecent sounded good. Though not sure I think it would be cheaper in both parts and running it, it uses a lot less space, and probably doesn't run nearly as hot. The moonlights, blue LEDs could also be put in the middle with the white LEDs where it would be a bit easier to place them and stuff. what do you people think? Remember that I am not using the white LEDS for plant growth, just for tank lighting! Thanks again!
- Heck is this works, I could even put Orange LEDs to mimick early morning
