    Hi Reefers/Sponsors

    I have an aquamedic oceanlight T5 8 x 54W with moonlight LED's.
    The unit has given me good service but needs refurbishment.
    The following items need replacement or service:
    1. The bulb holders are brittle (heat build up) and breaks, needs to be replaced.
    2. The moonlight LED bulbs (more like diodes) do not work anymore. needs to be checked or replaced.

    Can anyone advise me of a sponsor that supplies these spare parts, or do i have to import everything....what a mission thats gona be.

    I do realise this is an ideal time to replace with LED, but the unit is still in good nick and a refurbishment will ensure that i can use the unit for another setup.

    Any advise or assistance....

    you can get the end caps at any electrical wholesaler

    The leds at electrical shop like Communica or RC components. Not sure who else is in Cape Town.

    sequence of the globes does not matter.
    would look at 4 * 10000 , 2 actinic and 2 midday. But that could be a bit too yellow. Depending on the amount of blue from the actinic. Midday will give a lot of growth, but you will loose that white crispness of the water if not offset by higher K ratings.

    depending on the brand of globes you buy, they got different names. Rather look at their K ratings. Maybe take the unit with you and ask the LFS to help you decide. Set it up and run it over their coral tank until the output is acceptable.
