    Anybody maybe have a plan for LEDs? Suppose ill have to remove the lid then. Maybe a plan to build it into the existing space where the bulbs are now.

    Just note that keeping the lid on the TL450, then the leds will not fit inside. Too close to the water surface and not enough ventilation. Removing the lid and you have to keep in mind that some fish are jumpers.

    But look at
    Gesiggie's fascination - Page 6 - Marine Aquariums South Africa
    from post 116. The lid got cut to fit a LED unit from Jungle Aquatics. Its a 36W Key unit.
