So i've slowly been acquiring more and more LED tanks. Now the only T5HO lights I have are on my 20H. And as the pattern repeats, at about 6-7 months on the bulbs I start getting cyano. Spend $80 on new bulbs and my problem ceases. Well im pretty sure I can light my tank with LED's for not too much more..

I have Zoas, Palys, Candy Cane, Monti Cap, Torch, Leathers.

Now I know a guy that builds LED fixtures, and he made one for a 40B for $125. So his prices are definitely good, I just dont know enough about LED's to know what i'm getting is exactly what I need.

So what would y'all buy if you were me and looking for LED's?

Thanks,
Cole
