Thanks Hoppy. I've thought about that, and have read some threads on the subject, yours included. While that looks really interesting, and like something that I'd enjoy doing, I just flat don't have the time right now to devote to it. For this round, I'm really looking for more of a turn-key solution. I guess I could get a glass top and then just put an LED fixture on the glass top, so maybe that's an idea. However, the nice thing about the hood I have is that there's no light bleed around the top.
I see that Aqueon also has a newer model hood
, but I was hoping to go to a better quality light source for this round. On the other hand, according to their description, the hood comes:
- Comes with one Day White LED lamp, with slot for an additional LED lamp: Day White, Colormax, Beauty Max or Max Blue
- Changing LED lamps are easy to snap in and out, plug and play!
- Moon glow accent light and three-way power switch included
So maybe this would be okay. I wonder if there's a way to find out what the light output would be?
I'm still looking for other solutions as well. Do you know anything about the Beamworks fixtures? The pricing certainly seems fair for those.
Any thoughts on one of these? BeamsWork DA FSPEC LED Aquarium Light Pent Freshwater
It's currently at about $39 to fit my tank.
