DIY Aquarium Light

maintenance, care, compatibility

  1. LED aquarium lighting is initially expensive, but standard LED lamps currently work up to 50,000 hours, and are cheaper if you count on their long-term perspective.
  2. LED lighting also emits less heat, so it does not always require fans and cooling systems (depending on the number of lamps installed).
  3. Determine what type of LED light will best suit your needs for lighting a fish tank. If you have a salt water aquarium, more powerful LED lights will be required. Large and deep tanks also require strong lighting.

  • This is ideal for a tank with relatively small plants. Tanks with lively underwater reefs require more light, and buying LED aquarium lamps with higher power ratings is highly recommended.
  • Electricity and water in the interaction form a charge that can be deadly. The human body works as a channel between them, and with improper maintenance of the lamps, injury from electric shock may occur. Turn off all electronics, wiring systems and lighting when installing LED lamps, and drain the water from the aquarium. It will protect your life.
  • Look at the LED backlit aquarium.

    How to install LED aquarium lighting by yourself

    This illumination is made with the help of a tape consisting of a set of bright light bulbs. To work, you need a power supply with a capacity of 12 volts and the tape itself is white in color with a power of 9.6 W per meter and protection class IP65.

    Such lights can be placed directly under the water, but you should not experiment with this, as the overhead light is more useful for aquarium tenants.

    Connect the tape and power supply cable with silicone sealant. The dried tape can be attached to the lid and included in the food.
