LED lighting


Recommended Posts


Looking to create LED lighting system for my tank. I only need between 175 and 200 watts of T5 or MH.

I calculated the lumen's of this to be 17500 to 20000... that would be 100 lumen's per watt.

I was wondering if the total output lumen's for the LED lighting system would also need to be in that range or if you can get the same intensity with fewer lumen's?

Mind you I simplified this down so save you from all the math work that. So if I am missing any important info please let me know and ill address it.
