DIY LED Set for 2ft tank (2nd gen) result

Some close up picture of my 60cm tank using 12x3W CREE XR-E Q5 LED. Very satisfy with the result. I can easily grow pink tip and creeping Rotala sp goias.


  1. Hi!

    Interesting results. How many liters has your tank? Or more important, how many lumens/Liter are there?

    I'm planning on using 6 to 8 10W Cree XM-L T6 LED (1000 lm) lamps in my 200L tank. That puts 30 to 40 lm/L (110 to 150 lm/Gallon).
    Do you think it's enough?

    1. 60x30x32cm tank, so it is about 15 gallons or 55 liters. No idea about lumens/liters, it does not really matter anyway.

      200L is about 3ft, so 8x10W probably OK.
