Supplemental BC29 HQI Lighting


Recommended Posts

I'm currently running a Ushio 20,000K 150W MH over my BC29 HQI and I've decided I want more pop. Any suggestions on what would be the best way to add some supplemental LEDs? I've thought about a pair of Ecoxotic stunner strips, but I'm not terribly crazy over having 13" strips dangling off the edge of a 10" fixture (yeah, I'm one of those guys). I saw the Current USA TrueLumen LED strips, but they seem... Well, crappy. 4x .75W LEDs probably wouldn't even show up when stuck with a 150W MH.


So I pose these questions: What would you guys suggest to add a bit more pop to my tank? Get over it and do a pair of stunners? Or is there something a bit more compact that would work? PAR doesn't really matter as the MH does it's job nicely. It's purely supplemental. And finally, what colors would you recommend adding?


Thanks all.

Why not add some Cree RB LEDs on a heatsink for that extra pop of colors!! You would be amazed the colors you will see under the Royal blue LEDs!!!
