Hi there everyone, I have a 29 Gallon Bio Cube, I have had it for about 2 years, and I have heard that it is better to use LED lights to grow coral. Anyone have any suggestions on the better types of LED lights to install in a Bio Cube. Thanks

Try the rapidled.com they have a nano kit for the cubes which I heard are pretty good.

I used the rapidled retro kit and am happy with it. The mod aquatics board looks pretty cool too and may be a good option if you don't already have a controller.

For those of you using the rapidled retro kit, I am as well. I'm curious what % people are running their lights, and how heat is going for you? I just recently upgraded from the d type drivers and potentiometer, to the p type drivers and daylight controller, and am experiencing a lot more heat. Trying to figure out a good ratio, that works well for coral growth, but not melt my hood, currently I'm at 60% cool white and 60% royal blue, the whites are really putting out alot of heat IMO.. I'm just running the stealth fan that came with the upgrade, I left the old fans in, I'm thinking I may need to wire those up today
