Hi All,
I've been battling with high phosphate levels in my tank for a while and have a small patch of GHA growing which i keep in check with my urchin and mexican turbos...

I was wondering what lights people in the UK are using?? Anyone having great success with LED', if so which ones?

:-)

Hi Jules - not gonna be able to help on the LEDs. I use 4 x 20watt cfl's, DIY reflectors 2 inches from the screen.

660nm LEDs, and 420-450nm LEDs in about a 6:1 ratio. China ships everywhere =)
