    Hi guys,

    I am looking for some sump lights. The first one is just easy lighting for me to work in the sump. The second one would be to go over a section in my sump incase I ever wanted to grow some cheato or micro algae.

    Some requirements:

    1. No metal cause dumb a%% used a metal housing last time and that lasted as long as a Russian prozzy.

    2. Has to be LED, now I don't see this an issue for the general light but what about a light to grow cheato?

    3. Where can I go fetch it today :D


    Thanks guys

    TSR sells LED lights for sumps; there are 2 sizes a 450mm and a 600mm, they come with tank mounting brackets the LED are white and blue. Nathan is on holiday at the moment but I can help there if you like. I have just sent a message to him asking the price.

    As long as your sump water level is not more that about 400mm it will be fine.

    For Chaeto growth a floodlight with a energy saving warm white bulb works well.
