I want to buy a LED
light setup for my low light planted tank (no CO2
injection so I don't want high light levels)
I found a place that makes custom lights that are much cheaper than imported options, but I don't know enough about LED
lights to know if this is the correct light for me.
My tank specs are:
90cm long by 36 cm high by 32 cm wide (90 litres measuring to water line)
In inches that's 35.5 long x 14 high x 12.5 wide (almost 24 gallons)
The guy recommended the following:
60cm 8000K cool white LED bar. Aquashine LED has a beam angle of 140° and will light your aquaria evenly and be sufficient for low light plants. Alternatively you can get a 12Vdc model which is dimmable to suit your lighting requirements but this unit is sold without a 12Vdc adapter. 12Vdc adapters are available at most hardware and electrical stores.
60 cm = about 24 inches long
Looking at their product page Products - Aquashine LED
I think that's the 220V Cool white 60cm 60cm 6watt light with 8000K cool white LEDs Supplement for plants Supplement for coral
Does that seem about right for my tank? Sorry to be so dim (no pun intended!) but when I try to read up about LED
specs my brain shuts down.
I'm hoping this is good: while there are some lights available in the shops here they are extremely expensive because of the exchange rate, and I can't buy from Amazon as they don't ship electronic equipment over here where I live.
