    Default Looking for help picking out LED system

    I think i am sold on LED's now. First i saw Troys(bluwc) led system and was amazed, then all the venders with led's made all the corals look sick

    I think its time to retire the sunpod and get some led's

    So im looking for help on choosing a light, im no good with DIY stuff lol. Light will be for a 24g nanocube and would also like to get one for my 10g frag tank

    thanks alot
    mark

    Evolution led fixtures are affordable and work great.

    Just get the one that @nate_newton is selling right now for $25. You'd need to get a driver and some dimmers.

    I bought his larger diy and it works great. I took the dimmers off I got from him since I have a controller...I could sell you the dimmers and dimmer power supply cheap.

    Sunbright has a nice led fixture for under 300 that would be perfect for your tank

    For area extra bucks though you can have the evolution! And I think the sunbrite leds are only white.
