Hi Steo,


I will be going down the Marine route when I get to Canada, mainly due to the fact thea the Water is really hard and I'm ONE EXTREMELY LAZY fishkeeper, changing Water perameters, to me, just isn't worth it, I'll use whatever nature gives me....

You will be so happy if you spend the Dosh on Aquaray Led Strips, I used them and loved them.... end of... they threw out huge amounts of Light and the shimmer effect resembled the effect of Sun light on Australian Barrier Reefs, Depending on the size of the Tank, these are the business, with respect to a recent poster trying to sell an Aquaray Reef Tile, these, in my opinion, are too focussed on one spot, the strips do the job very well. These are so much cheaper to run than Halide units.

Kev.

I have a 4ft long tank and 240 litres. Not too deep.
Would I need 4 of this bulbs?
Thanks for all the info.

Definitely 4, I'm looking for a set second hand and no luck, they are the business, try Aquarium Solutions in Ashbourne, ask for Andy, he's helpful and a really nice Lad.
