  1. This would be very ideal, but would that be too much light intensity even at such low amperes? Would I need two divers to be able switch into "full actinic" mode?
  2. Thanks! This looks ideal but could I hook it up to a potentiometer to adjust the intensity/color blend?
  3. So I have decided on a 3UP led mounted onto my heatsink. I would like to have 2 controllable channels but I have very little experience with electronics. I know I at least need this: If I were to purchase the equipment listed below, is that everything I would need? Alternatively, if I were to piece it out, what would I need? A physical dimmer nob, a driver, a power source? What kind of driver would I need? And would I still need a power source? I dont think I see a good option on that site...? Any help/direction would be very much appreciated! The advice you guys have given so far is awesome
  4. Hey all, I've been out of the hobby for a few years and I'm going to set up a tiny ~.5 gal jar pico. I need your guys' help though -- it seems there has been big advancements in terms of lighting tech! Im going to be using the jar shown below and I have a heat sink similar to the one shown below as well. I would like to mount LEDs on them and ideally I would like to be able to control the amount of actinic light. What LEDs/other equipment should I be looking into for this project? Are LEDs even the way to go? Any help/direction would be much appreciated! Thanks
