    I'm not sure if this Site has them, but it can't hurt going thru their Site..:blush:

    I think they are sufficient...I'm sure I recall some of the MASA Members had them on their Tanks..think it was about 2bulbs...I stand corrected...will try and find Threads...but I think ed.adam and fly* comes to mind...could be wrong..:blush:..either way...they got them from General Lamps...

    There is a guy on the SARK forum, Adam, I see he put some of these into his TL550, but I think he ordered them from overseas, not sure if he is on this site or not. I was considering using them on my tank but with the price +shipping +import etc it would probably work out better to just buy a complete LED unit that comes with a neat housing, timers, dimmers etc.

    That's my 2cents, I'd rather put in the extra cash to buy a pro led unit than try DIY one together, unless you can get the price of those PAR38 bulbs down quite a lot.
