Hey have new LED lights and I'm wondering if someone can shed some light on how good they are? Have there been any complaints about them.?

I just bought a LED light, Marinneland Double Bright Model and i love it so far. The shimmer in the tank is awesome but the blue Lunar LED's are amazing.

I wouldn't recommend this fixture for a serious planted tank enthusiast. The PAR at depth for a .06W led with no optics is pretty abysmal. Unfortunately, in the current market, a good LED fixture for $39 is probably too good to be true.

That being said, it would probably grow some low light plants ok.

If you really want to go LED, consider the trulumen pro, a taotronics fixture from ebay, or building a fixture yourself from parts from rapidLED.

What I'm really interested in is how safe it is?
