    RIO 240 Led lighting

    Hi, I have a Juwel Rio 240 with the stock multilux LED bulbs. I haven't found much info or discussion about these lights as everyone seems to discuss the heliolux. Is the lighting provided by the stock multilux unit considered to provide high, medium or low levels of light?
