How to make light in an aquarium

Aquarium lighting and choice of lamps, which is better to choose?

Duration of aqua illumination and options to facilitate control

The idea is taken from the original LED lamp for the Vitrea aquarium, which costs about 1,500 euros. We will be able to create LED light in the aquarium with our own hands and with far less cost.

We will use white 3-W LEDs mounted on the board in the form of stars. Since the wiring diagram of our eighteen LEDs will be made as a serial connection of six LEDs, then we will use three sources of current 700 mA, 18 W for power supply.

First, on thick (12 mm) transparent acrylic, cut in the right size, drill holes, making a grid with a distance of 12 cm between the holes.

We polish the holes and install lenses and holders in them.

Now we install our LEDs and connect them with wires, which for waterproofing are placed in PVC tubes.

Now we install radiators necessary for cooling the LEDs.

We develop and draw a diagram of the brackets on paper, then transfer it to wooden blanks. Saw them.

Our brackets consist of several parts, so we glue them together and wait for the glue to grip a little. After that, insert the acrylic sheet into them and install it on the aquarium. This must be done to ensure that the lamp and its stand does not lead during the full drying of the glue.

In addition, the whole structure will sit tightly in its place.

When the glue is completely dry, you need to grind and sanitize our brackets to give an aesthetic and neat appearance.

It remains only to paint the brackets in any color with paint from a can. And our lamp is ready for connection and operation.
