    Item description: LED unit for Planted tank – 120cm (Pendant style won't work)
    Location: Middleburg Mpa, or Pretoria
    Shipping: Depends on who is selling
    Price: Depends on the unit

    Good morning all, my tank is in bad state following a move... it’s been 6 months since the tank had light. I’m keen on installing an LED unit, though not sure what to get and where to get it. I’m not looking to spend an arm and leg, and fortunately it appears though the prices came down on the units since I last checked a few years ago.

    It would be great if the unit had sun set/rise function where it, though not critical.

    Any input/guidance/hints/tips would be appreciated, especially with regards to pointing me in the direction of a good deal.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jip, done that before, then went back to T5. Colour on fish was much better. But now I'm keen for proper LED setup, as it's more pretty.

    Hi Dane. I had a look at your light, though I decided to rather buy the proper length for my tank. Tank is actually 130cm, though I said 120 as they don't make lights for 130cm. Ended up buying a ZEDlight from lollilocks. Thanks anyway.
