    Looks good. Quite a lot of LEDs for a nano. What kind did you use?

    Nice build boet
    Improved living now stock 15000k white and 450 - 460nm aqua blue LEDS.
    They also stock power supplies and the best service ever.
    Not CREE or Bridgelux .
    They supply Epistar but for the price i think you cant beat them.
