New tank in the making...

Postby ajinkyajin » Tue Aug 23, 2016 7:27 pm

Hi all,
Encouraged by the 'success' of my first nano tank ;) ,I decided to crank it up a notch and got myself a bigger tank of dim. 30x18x15 inches.
The light setup is a DIY one which I already built and is ready.
The scape would be dutch-style.The design and plants are yet to be decided :)
Here are some pics of the tank with the then underconstruction light setup:

Here's my light setup:

@sarvagya80 @bappa Yes light setup is custom made.
I made the frame using hardboard.The leds are 0.5w 5630 leds grouped in modules:

20x modules of 5630 daylight white led(5 led per module)

10x modules of 5630 Royal blue led(3 led per module)

10x modules of 5630 warm white led(3 led per module)
Powered by two power adapters of 12v 2A each.

Total wattage:80w
The base is a silver reflector tape(although i don't think leds require one)
