These kits use Bridgelux 3 watt LED
's which is what's in the dimmable $129 Taotronics unit I believe. I love DIY, but is it worth $30 to build it yourself? One advantage is you could add a few red and green LED
's to warm up the spectrum, but that's only for looks, the coral doesn't care.
Your question stated you wanted to keep stuff more than LPS
? They are about as hard as it gets on lighting, so I would guess a dimmable led
fixture would suit you fine.
