New LED Lighting System from Rapid Led

Thank you Rapid Led for your great product and service and a BIG thank you to Rickets Reef on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4I_5uh4R_QQ .

I ordered 120 LED's.

60 CREE XR-E Royal Blue 3W LED with 65 degree white Lenses.
60 CREE XP-G R5 Cool White also 65 degree white lenses.

10 Mean Well ELN-60-48D dimmable drivers so I can dimm them via my APEX controller.

8 Drilled and Tapped 4.25" x 9" Heat Sinks and 3 Drilled and Tapped 4.25" x 3.9" Heat Sinks.




I used Aluminium tubes to keep the heat sinks in place and to keep the weight down.
The dimensions of the setup are 78" x 15". I covered the LED rack with Plexiglass to keep water off.



I am running the LED's now on my old tank until I get the new one up and running I hope in the next 6-8 weeks.

The light is and will be perfect for the new tank.
The PAR readings are CRAZY!

Money well spent for sure!
