    Default suggestions for JBJ 12 jal ?????

    Originally had planned on ordering Nano-Customs LED + T5 hybrid light for my JBJ 12 gal. that contains only Zoas & Palys.
    With their demise I will probably have to go with a LED only setup.
    If hood is kept on, can Cree's be used or will they be too close to the tank? or go with strip lights?(Probably have to be a DIY set-up.)

    If I use a hangover type I am looking at:

    (1.) Slimline LED from Sunbrite LED

    (2)AI Nano LED

    also waiting to see the new JBJ Unibody LED light

    Thanks for help & suggestions

    I am having really great success with the small Sunbrite fixture on my 12g JBJ. Crazy good growth!
    Detroit's oldest large LED tank! Est'd Jan 2005, went LED June 2009. 6' wide 130g reef, Sunbrite T10 LED tubes (3xGen 3 and 1xGen 1), mostly SPS, but chalices, other LPS, and a few softies too.

    I would do a DIY. I am doing one to a 24 gal jbj nano and I think it is going to turn out great.
    Not to mention the cost is about 1/2 if you have questions on how just PM and I will show you my setup.
