    Hi guys

    Thanks in advance for suggestions.

    I'm soon getting a nano tank setup (20g) with dimensions of +- 90cm(l) x 30 x 30, with a tunze comline unit, vortech mp10 pump. I'm planning to get a oddysea 36" light fixture with 4 ATI T5 bulbs. I've got a decent amount of knowledge in setting up a tank from extensive research on the topic heh :tt2:

    Planning to go heavy LPS and a few nano fish. (clown gobies, tank bred ocellaris, yasha goby max).

    I am really wanting to add supplemental LED lighting to add a shimmer effect to the tank. Doesn't even need to be a very drastic one, but something noticable and nice.

    I'm not quite sure what to do/go for LED wise, and was wanting to find out anybodies input into potential ideas for LED strips etc? and where I could purchase suitable LED's from etc? My budget is like +-1.5k (although would like to spend a lot less, but sometimes quality costs more - just not sure what I'll need).

    -Daniel
