      Hi Frans,

      I have been following you on SARK and MASA on the LED process, well done on sourcing the lights and taking the chance. I apologise for the list of questions but I am not electronic savvy and this all quite new and novel to me. The LEDs sourced, do you create your own LED bank or do you request the LED spec and the applicable housing it should fit into, and then the type of 'fitting' it goes onto..like the GU10? I have found the XP-E, XP-G leds which seem to fit the profile and now I just need to understand how the full puzzle fits together so I can consider ordering it all.. has your purchase performed to xpectation? i'm assuming the wider the angle the better? ie 135degrees? my tank will be 350mm deep so i'm hoping I can use solely LEDs..

      thanks
      David

      Hi Frans,

      Trust you doing well. I've been following you on the LED process on SARK and here and curios to know how it is going? the LEDS purchased from GL, did you have to create a LED bank or heatsink unit for it or just plug them into the GU fitting? I am clueless wen it comes to electronics so considerin the LED option but knowing my limitations and trying to see how best to create a LED light system for my future tank, tank depth is most likely at 350mm. so hoping I can just purchase the lamps and then plug them into a screw in fitting.. but i fear it may be more complicated than that. which lamps did you end purchasing and are they doing what you hoped?

      thanks

      Regards,
      David
