Aqueon


Doublebright


Both were taken with the white balance adjusted to the plastic pipe for each picture. The Marineland is only a 24" fixture.

Opinions lol. We all have them. I think the double brights far exceed the other light fixture. The skimmer is amazing and the light is just so natural looking. When you see the fish swim in and out of a dark spot and then not a highly lighted area it looks so real.

Yup, my tank with marine land double brights LED's. I put the light further back in the tank because I like that shadow effect.

Would these yield a more "natural, shimmering, underwater" effect compared to the fluorescent lamps I'm running now?

The problem is modifying these things for use in my current hoods...
