    Hey Guys
    I live in Botswana, I have a 150cm long x 65cm high x 60cm wide Marine Tank it has been running for about a year. I had some t5's on the tank but they kinda died a few weeks ago, so now i have a 400w MH light on the tank.

    I have been reading on the forum and decided to get more into the game a lil, ie corals.

    Now here's the question I wanna ask, i am very keen to swap to LED lighting. I have the following kit in mind 49 LEDs Controller DIY kit, but it obviously wont be enough for the tank so I would like to know from the experts how many led's they would suggest and if there are local suppliers in RSA, otherwise I will just order from the net.

    Could you also advise me on what colours combinations and numbers of colours to get.

    Any help I can get will be highly appreciated
