then just go from there. So to answer your question they run much cooler than T5s. not to mention a much higher light intensity and they also give shimmering effect like halides do.

Hi in the set up you see here I mounted the 2 modules to the top side luckily i had just enough height for even distribution of the light as the tank is built into the wall so i had limited space to work with. These modules actually have 2 fans built into them and are triggered thermally. The actual LEDs do get warm, but they are mounted onto a very large heatsink in the module to keep them cool. So the fans are never have to be triggered. I recommend get a made up unit for your tank and

Hi This tank is changed now. But best settings for me was equal white and blue. I set mine on absolute minimum and the lights only sit a short distance from the tank itself. If i have it on anyhigher the algea grows faster too. thanx

What are the best settings? Both controls (white and blue) on maximum?

@1i11i1 hi, yes we do like them they are fantastic. pretty close to halides in terms of brightness but no heat what soever and use 1/5th of powercompared to halides. ours is 200L 4 foot tank so 2 units enough for us
