    Hey guys,

    Hope you all are doing good...

    I've been thinking of going LED, but as you all know one of the most limiting factors is $$$$.

    So I've seen some LED chips and lenses on the Rabtron site, which is pretty resonable, but has anyone tried them on a lighting unit over a tank? are they any good?

    for what DIY will cost you, you can look at Reef Aquatics, unless you are hardcore DIY :)
    @Andre@ReefAquatics has some awesome units that are not $$$ eaters

    Lol, hardcore diy.. I like that. Well not totally hardcore but do prefer trying my hand at diy if its not impossible. Also its more for the New tank build(which I still need to visit you and chat about :) ), so I can make this yo my desired dimensions. Also I have drivers that were given to me by a friend, already have the PSU and for the heatsink I have an old car amplifier which I'm going to modify the cover which is a heatsink. It's long enough for the purpose. So hence the route for a diy
