View Full Version : Ideal 12 watt LED spotlight

04/01/2012, 07:05 PM

I'm looking for some lighting advice and appreciate any tips!!!!

I'm looking to light a 30 gallon long aquarium with intentions of keeping macro algae and soft / lps coral.

I was looking at the 'hangover', a fixture designed for 12W LED spotlights.
You can find further information on it here... http://************.com/2012/03/06/hangover-led-spotlight/

My questions are...

- Does anyone have any experience with similar fixtures?

- How many 12W fixtures will I need to sufficiently light my aquarium for macro algae and coral?

- What are some 12 W LED spotlights that you recommend?

I appreciate any help and advice that you have to offer!!!

Thanks a bunch! :bounce1:

Sorry for the late response.

The aquarium is 30" long, 12" wide and 18" deep.

2 - 3 LED's?

What's a good 12W spotlight?

Thank you everyone!

Do a quick search on google for "par38 reef LED" and just brows a few different sites
