Added side note: I just finished watching the vid, I especially liked that he used the light on a trophs tank ^_^

Something like this would have cost around $300-350

But keep in mind it's a 40 LED dimmable system. Each LED being 5 watts.

Having said that, it would then be comparable to "store bought" systems costing in the $1000-1200 range.


There is no way i need this kind of power, so i am running the dimmed down to about 0.5-1 watt a piece. Which is still incredibly bright.
