I have a algae turf scrubber body that is build to accommodate the approximately 6"x6" flat LED lights on both sides. I've been looking at a bunch of ACKE brand lights on Amazon, but I am curious as to what others are using for their ATS. I'm strongly leaning toward the 35w version, but it just went out of stock. I'm in no rush, and would like to get this right the first time.

Hi, I’m looking to build one also...and I can’t seem to find many of those “shell type” waterproof LED grow lights available anymore. I was curious which one you ended up going with. Did you go with the 35w Acke? Or did to find another similar unit/source?
Cheers

I used four 10 watt led chips from ebay on my scrubber.

It works well.
