hi guys,

i have a trigon 190 marine with 2 T5's and updating lighting system as my corals (only a couple) do not seem to be thriving.

because its a corner tank the options are pretty limited for lighting so i was thinking of a TMC aqua tile to fit in triangular section at back behind the T5's

I also came across this crowd on the net

www.ledpacific.com/aquarium-lighting-led...18w-600mm-long-ip68/

has anyone ever tested these or seen the results before?

any feedback would be appreciated regarding the LED's - also if there are any other lighting suggestions from people who have already converted a corner tank to marine, i'd be happy to hear them.

cheers

thanks for the reply - are you running a trigon corner tank damien? i saw the led's on a tank before and the lighting is pretty good from them. my problem is the shape of the tank at the moment and what system fits best. only thing i can see around are the tmc tiles?

thanks. id say it looks the part. unfortunately my tank is triangular in shape. the 2 t5's are closer to the front which leaves restricted space to install proper lighting at the back of the tank - which is where i will have to place the corals/liverock. it would leave about enough space for one 1 TMC reef tile above them, as most lighting units are long and rectangular in shape.

did you get good growth and colour with the tile?

thanks for the feedback once again.
