It's just a plastic light diffuser aka egg crate. You can get a 4'x2' sheet in the lighting section at most DIY shops, I get them for $12 at home depot.

Before anyone complains the yellow tang is going in a 125 next week, just cracked my 72g so he is in here temporarily.
How many leds do you have over the 72g?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1pc-Outdoor-20W-Blue-Led-Home-Garden-Sopt-FloodLight-20Watt-Waterproof-Light-H-/160816200593?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item257164 7b91#ht_3623wt_1181 I got mine here. if you email them and tell them what your looking for he'll get right back to you. He sells a better quality light then the others and my 20 watt 12,000k's were only $50 each. Also if your under $200 there's not custom chargers.

Here are what 4 of the 10w LED spots look like on my 75 freshwater. Just added them yesterday I do have some concerns about if it will be enough light for my plants but for a 70 dollar investment I figured it was worth a go. But as far as lighting the tank I am certainly satisfied!

My plants are all lowish light types so hopefully they will be ok. I guess we will see!

You will have to pardon the reflection from the sliding glass door behind me

Still waiting on my 50's .

The rgb strip light with remote looks pretty cool.

It's neat to be able to change colour with the touch of a button.

You can also get ultraviolet led strip lighting to enhance certain corals .
