My juwel rio 180 tanks twin flourescent lighting unit recently failed.
I have been meaning to upgrade to led lighting for some time now so bit the bullet and orderd a Juwel Helialux 1000 led unit. This is a direct replacement so my tank flaps still fit.
The difference in lighting is astonishing, my fish now seem to positively glow and my plants are growing like mad.
I have just ordered the helialux controller so I can customise the light output.
Watch this space for a review when the controller arrives.

Yeah one of the best changes that has happened in this hobby over the last 15 years is LED lighting becoming affordable and easy to get. Some much nicer than using T5 tubes, not to mention cheaper to run.

Cheaper to run and don't adduce to the tanks heat unlike my flourescents which where a nightmare in the 6 days of we get a year when it's to hot. ;)
