I love my Marineland LED's they aren't as bright as florescent but they look more natural. They don't have that fake purple tint the florescent give off.

I have some very dim fluros over my tank for my fronts, sorting out some led's for after xmas for the moonlight effect to encourage my cats out a bit more. I so some torch type leds to see if i liked it, they wernt big enough to do the whole tank, but watching the fronts under it in what seemed like a more natural enviroment was amazing!

How do you do the turn on this light bro? Did you have to buy the connector? Can you snap a few pics of your set up? Sorry for having too many questions.

Thanks,

it's all good man. i have a remote for the light strip, i basically just put the light strip into my old fluorescent fixture and stuck the remote receiver out of the end of it, and when i wanna turn the lights on i just click the power button on my remote! it also has like 8 different dimmer levels, which is awesome. i pretty much keep it on as dim as possible 99% of the time

i'll take some pics and post asap

Sorry if I confused you about, it's my bad. What I try to ask is how do you angle the light strip? In you case is 6ft tank (I assumed) and 8ft for me,light strip is 16.4 ft. Obviously, the strip is longer than our tank and it does not looks like its that flexible to go 90 deg. angle at the end of the tank. How do you curve the light strip?

thanks,
Billy

ah i see,

actually the led light strips are completely flexible and can be folded any way. with my 6 ft tank i just folded the strip 3 times so it's like there are 3 light strips
