Replacing LED Moon Lights

If you are handy with a multimeter you can find the wires going to the LEDs and measure the voltage. If not there is probably a transformer in the fixture to knock down the voltage to something DC. That transformer most likely will say on it what the output voltage is. Find LEDs that are that voltage and splice them in. Remember LEDs only work one direction because they are a diode. Long story short, if you can get to the wires and know the voltage replacing LEDs in easy.

Thanks,

I guess I was just surprised that they went out after having the T5 for only a year and them only being on during the evening? LED's normally have a huge lifespan, no?

I took the moonlights off my tank. Unless you enjoy looking at the tank under them I don't think they really serve any purpose. I know there are people that are fanatical about it thinking it is for coral health or spawning, but I really don't want anything to spawn in my tank. Just my .02
