    Hi there the LEDs in that picture have now been replaced that was a 1040 metre dark blue moonlight LED tube that can be submerged or not submerged actually I think it is better not submerged but really lights the tank up in the evening not using it if anybody is interested in purchasing it

    Thanks bud yes they are cute and follow you along the glass when you go to the tank I was given them by a friend they lived in his sump for three months because of bullying by other clowns I was only too happy to give them a nice home I was a bit worried because I have a 10 cm maroon clown but no issues what so ever
