THE POWER BILL IS IN!

Post by Bluesaltwater87 on Sat Feb 11, 2012 6:53 pm

Hey all as you all may know i have switched my tanks to LEDs for a while and i never did tell everyone what i was running and how much it cost. Shocked
ok well for my 40 gallon saltwater tank i am using 2 BLUE + WHITE LED AQUARIUM GROW LIGHT PANEL system and 1 L.E.D. moon light strip
the 2 main lights have 225 L.E.Ds each and are 14 watts each
the L.E.D. moon light is 5.67 watts
for a total of 33.67 watts of energy an hour.

It has droped my bill (coming from using 4 t-5 lights and MTHL) by 1/6th the cost
1/6th !!!!!!! Very Happy Shocked
running about 10 hours a day
so i am only spending ................. 1.11 a mouth!!!!!!!! cheers

http://www.ebay.com/itm/225-Blue-WHITE-LED-Aquarium-Plant-Grow-Light-Panel-/190406080622?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c5516386e

this Blue/white is really good for corals
