Most people say you won't get the desired growth,which is actually hair algae, i have found this to be true for me also....Higher watts will actually burn the algae too..Shoot for 30 watt bulbs and under and "warm" light for best results ..

Honestly, I'm not set on LEDs, just seemed like they would work as well as others. I've never worked with the spiral bulbs, or the reflectors. Where can I get the reflectors and bulbs? How much would it take?
