so I've got an odyssey 4x t5. 2x 10k & actinic . Not the best , but at r1000, a bargain. 3 ft on 4 ft tank. Bought a strip light for R150 and installed it inside odyssea for moonlight.
Then came across LED spotlights. So put 2 X 10w led (R125each) in for a bit of extra lighting.
Can it do any harm, should I add another 2 X ?
Or maybe upgrade to 2 X 20w ?
In October I am going to USA ,( plan on picking up something there ) so just looking for a cheap upgrade to current setup till October .
Any advice greatly appreciated.

yip, whatever you buy in the big USA, make sure it can handle 220/240 Volts. Unless you got a 240 to 110V transformer.

Most of the nice LED's run off DC anyway, and the PSU's can normally take anything from 110v-240v AC input, but just make sure before spending.

No thank you, not for me


They are using quarter watt LEDs?!?!?
Although they got plenty of LEDs in there, I doubt is these units would really have penetration punch.

On shallow tanks these would work out nicely.
