Company called Future Light in Cape Town - waterproof LED Strips 5m Grow light R599 though I only used 2.5m in this 1m tank - this has 4 red lights to every 1 blue and is set at spectrum's ideal for plant growth. Cool White 5M R224 used 2.5m - this adds some power and gives natural colour. It also seems to counteract/hide the brown tannin colours of the water. These combined I estimate I get 1.55 Watts per gallon and that is recommended for tanks without CO2 diffusers. So perfect Manual Dimmer 179 - put on the cool white strip so I can simulate a sunset and fade in light through the day. 2x AC/DC converters 598 - one for each tank i have. They run a max of 5m of LED strip in DC. I wired everything myself with relative ease (needed soldering and silicone sealing), simply stuck the strips to the glass inside the tank with it's sticky back and silicone. The Adapters I put in an ice cream tub with cut holes for ventilation and wire access. I hid this outside the tank. Total cost for a 100x39cm and 60x30cm tank with 4m lights to spare = R1600 Nice thing is they use min power, let of min heat (most of that heat is released off the back of the strip, out the tank). They can't rust, I'm told the bulb life is something like 15 years, they are light and easy to position. So far the plants are loving it. Growing fast. Fish under the light look okay but the light being close to the water surface means a fish swimming beneath and past it will appear bright and translucent one second and duller the next if they're on the surface. Also the grow lights make the fish look red at times. The light is rather directional and doesn't spread evenly. This means the fish duller at times when theyre swimming around, It's hard to sit and study their colour. This also means you should place lights and plants carefully so plants that need the most light get it. I'd give the set up 7.5/10 for color. Have seen other lights that bring out more color on surfaces. But the pictures posted are pretty accurate to the color I see with my eyes, not bad at all. I may get a florescent light designed particularly to bring out good colour, with an even spread for when I'm viewing or displaying the aquarium. Any suggestions? I also want to play with lighting from different directions not just overhead. Future Light also have: UV LED strips 5M (not bought) R 600 but not sure I need that. They work in the 385-405nm wavelength and the safe range is 380-400nm.. They won't aid Photosynthesis but will kill all bacteria it comes into contact with. Not sure I want that. But it would enhance colour and promotes antioxidants in plants.
