You know those old, Chinese made, black box LED fixtures? I never found them to be much good for coral, not compared to the awesome new technology of AI, Radion and Kessil lights.

Maybe they can be used for lighting indoor tropical plants?  I took an old tall lamp and modified it by removing the cord and light socket and bending the lamp shade hoop.

Maybe it's time to buy my wife another Orchid? Wink

I know. Your tank looks awesome now, my friend. I wonder how much 'awesomer' it would be with the newer LED's?
