    Hi

    just joined up been having a look around and finding some great stuff.

    I have had a planted tank set up for about a year with no real style. And have now purchased a 80x45x45 braceless tank and would like to set up a Japanese or nature style tank. Have been having a look around for lights and not really sure what I need, I would either like to have the lights suppsended over the tank or sat on the sides. I have a budget of about £300-400 can anyone recommend Anything.

    Thanks

    great site

    Thanks for the reply.

    Would one of these be enought for a planted tank of this size?

    Also if I wanted something that sat on the sides of the tank for a bit less what sort of thing should I be looking at?

    Is that 80x45x45 inches?

    If so I recommend using 2 TMC Grobeam LEDs, they come in at 490mm long each though you will have to suspend them, the light is quite intense and they produce less heat. Works for me.
