    Ok Guys who know what is the price and when available? on PFK they said end of May.

    http://www.practicalfishkeeping.co.uk/c ... p?sid=3898

    It should be 4 Osram SSL LED's (80 or 150 degree spread, I guess 80 for TMC) which seems to be of same efficiency as CREE XP-G Q5.

    This little thing will run on 12W at 1000mA which should give around 1100 Lumens which could be as 24W+ T5 on PAR level I guess and I just recently started my DIY LED for P&H nano with 4x XP-G but I would use them on sides of main tank and buy this new TMC for nano instead.

    Somewhere on other forum I've seen 39 pounds and it should come with dimmer... If true this light will be no brainer for nano :crazy:

    If they're £39 then I'll almost definitely get one :D Or two... maybe 3?

    Can't really tell what it looks like, do they come with a clip or something? But yeah, concept sounds good

    There's some kind of separate mounting system I believe. Would be very interested in one of these.

    I called TMC they won't talk much to me unless I am registered retailer so I called some other retailer and asked for release date and price. They said around September, but TMC said this week fro release lol. And retailer said price in range of 70-90 which triggered me to finish my DIY nano led fixture for less than half of that.

    Wish they'd hurry up already, although that price point seems a bit prohibitive to me as its for nano's.

    would be nice if PFK offered it up as a subscription offer ;)

    Yep, almost £100 is a lot of money for that.

    Better to learn how to setup a led box. :)

    Check my new P&H nano thread ;) I made custom led for 30 pounds matching TMC. I could help you with something it is not difficult.

    Thanks, will check it out.

    From what I understand we need the LEDs, a device called a driver and that is it, right?

    yeah I have some news and you're not going to like it but as far as I can gather, through retailers always happy to ring tmc and the reply , :clap: every place I went (six best in nottingham area ) was the same.."tmc aren't releasing mini led 400 at all and pfk have got it wrapped round their necks" now... this can't just be a coincidence surely? :crazy:

    I've got to admit... I stopped buying it and if it does come out then whoopeedoo for nano, sure that they make an excellent nano clip anyway and very affordable too

    There are other ways to have a led out of the box, and way cheaper than this.

    The guys from salt water tanks have clip on e27 or e14 bulbs, and you can get those lights on led. :)

    I got a e27 that is about 100w bright, and two e14 that give as much light as 50w, but no heat. :)
