Finally finished my led setup about 2 weeks ago and I'm very happy with the result.
My tank is setup to mainly be a fish only with nennie.
But have some Ricordias and GSP in my tank from LR I bought.
The life the GSP has is insane and my GBTA is full of colour now.

My light setup consists of the following
10x 10w 20 000kelvin 12v leds.
10x 10w royal blue 12v
6x 3w UV 12v

Control is a 5 Channel Programmable Controller.
30A led dimmer, 30A power supply.

2x 2mm thick aluminium tubing 100mm x 30mm

6x 12v fans for keeping the aluminium cool.

Very happy with my setup.

Looked at the 10w uv but that would of been way over kill.
I just wanted to 3w to help brighten up the 10w blues.
You must remember the 10w whites are 20 000 kelvin so there spectrum is very bright and becomes a higher blue white colour.
