Default Re: LED strip lighting for vivarium

Here are some comparison pics of the Jungle Dawn 13 watt LED's I installed.
Here we have four 25 gallon, slope front vivs, side by side. The first pic shows them under their old lighting, which was a 2 tube, 4 foot, T8 shop fixture. Tubes are 32 watts each, for a total of 64 watts.

Second shot has four 13 watt Light Your Reptiles Jungle Dawn LEDs installed, one over each viv. That is a total of 52 watts. They brought my overall frog room temps down appreciably, are brighter overall, and use less electricity.

Other shots show the LED strip build.

The second "i" is silent. It's so silent it's not even there!
