    Hi guys! What do you guys think of the following LED floodlight for a 63L tank?

    Input Voltage: 220V, 50/60Hz
    Power Consumption: 13W
    Lumen Output: Cool White (6000k): >850lm
    LED Lifetime: >30,000hrs
    Dimension: 115x85x85mm
    Price: R320


    They also have the following Led floodlights...... 20W, 30W, 50W, 100w and 160W

    I Think It might be too low...... I might go with the 50W

    I agree, the Kelvin rating is too low. Good for Algae :)

    6000K is a great colour for growth on corals but unfortunately also for algae like previously said. If you want to go with it I would suggest that you either supplement the light with more blue LED's, also you could try ( I tested this on my MH on my previous tank,it melted due to the heat but then I used the blue swimming pool light covers, worked like a charm), you can cover the glass with a blue tint plastic that they use to colour the white lights for shows and parties(it shouldn't melt like mine because LED's are cool. It's cheap and you can easily get it at a electronics or lighting store. What it does it changes the colour that the light comes out without taking away to much of the efficiency ( you would maybe like to go for the bit stronger LED then). The corals don't go brown and algae is limited just like it would be under 10000-14000K lighting.
