    Hi guys

    Just wanted to find out if / where its possible to get these LED striplights in South Africa.

    ReefBrite TECH LED | ReefBrite.com

    I was wanting to supplement t5's on a nano with these LED's in future in white for a shimmer effect.

    Thanks ;)

    (soz posted this in the Lighting section as well, but thought maybe general will get more views) :thumbup:

    Ah ok cool, Thanks for the reply

    Does anybody know of any kind of equivalent to this to produce shimmer in a nano tank, as a supplement to t5's?

    Well, if you really only want it for the shimmer, then just add normal smd strip led's to the tank, a couple of guys have done it before...you can buy them cheap of gumtree, bidorbuy, ebay...etc etc

    ok cool, I am basically going for shimmer only, because I'll already have 4 ATI t5's for a 30 cm width, and shallow tank, so will be plenty of light.

    Have you seen or heard if adding smd strip led's produces a decent shimmer effect?

    I have seen them in action, and there is a nice shimmer (like with all LED's shimmer only really becomes noticeble when your water surface is agetated)...

    awesome, great, thanks for the help. Ye, I'm planning on getting a vortech mp10 cause the setup is small, so can splash out a bit on the equipment :)
