Sounds like you got it...Trido, what do you think?
For changing the leds, does brand matter, or does anything from China generally work fine? They all seem to be epistar on ebay. Also are the ones I should get are the 3w, forward voltage 3.2-3.4, and forward current 700ma, for the standard 165w two channel black boxes? Also how close do the nm numbers matter do you think? Is 425nm a fine replacement for 420nm if the vendor doesn't have 425nm?
So for power consumption calculation, the light would use 3w * . 700ma being 2.38 watts per led, thus 55*2.38 about 130 watts (max) power draw?
It still has the original pump and seals. It just keeps on chugging along. Im passing it along to someone full of media for a low low price. I expect that they will get another five years out of it pretty easily.That is amazing............ Looks like still in good condition for over a decade of use! Appears it took very good care of your reef.....gorgeous!!!!
