LED Light for planted aquarium
U R B A N LED NATURAL GROW


My friend and I worked in the past six months
on that project, It was important for us to create
LED light fixture that is equivalent to a pair of
54 watt T5 high quality fluorescents.

We took into consideration the light wavelength
combination that will help create photosynthesis.
Optical components were integrated in order to
produce maximum light scattering in the water from
top and all the way down to the substrate.

A lot of thought were given to the practical
aspects so we designed 3 operational modes;


Mode 1- Main light
Main light includes 3 illuminations levels;
Low, Medium and High that will allow maximum
flexibility while one monitor the plants growth.
Illuminations levels also enable to easily create
the course of sunrise-Midday-sunset light as a
reflection of natural behavior of sun light in our planet.

Mode 2 - View
View mode can be very useful for general
inspection and maintenance at any time of the
day or the night, on top of that the View mode
will illuminate the aquarium in nice and bright
light and that can be also very helpful when
guests arrive to visit while the main light is off.

Mode 3 - Moonlight
Moonlight is integrated in the fixture.

General information
The LED light pushes at least 2,500 clean luminous
and power consumption is up to 45 watt, we also
install digital controller and the fixture is water proof
Length 122 cm, Width 4 cm, Height 2 cm.











General view of the LED fixture that is design for planted aquarium.












Light check.











Moonlight.












General view, the bowl is inside in order to measure the light.

The teacher came to help with the full set-up,
he helped a lot at the final stage of the project
and I would like to share my deep appreciation
and gratitude for the knowledge he share.










Empty the water.









‫The‬ curtain.






The lower substrate contain:
40% Peat PH4.8
30% Vermakolight 2/3 mm
10% Humus






At first we apply thin layer of 20% pumice.










The lower substrate go to the net pillows.






The net pillows in the water above the pumice.






‏Anubias petite go to the ‪'‬Pendulum Ball‪'.‬






Cryptocoryne aponogetifolia go to the 'Crinum Pillars'.




Microsorium SP & M‪icrosorium narrow lea‬f go to the Cryptocoryne petchii "Chair".










After eighteen months of preparations U R B A N AQUASCAPING is finally in the water,
14 species of plants are part of the set-up and that is important to the initial cycle as
well for monitor the new LED Light for planted aquarium U R B A N LED NATURAL GROW.

Flexibility is important.







Baby mangrove is been prepared to be set near the 'Mother'.



Piece of glass is attached for submerged the mangrove.

Both models were tested under water for two weeks
and the I have decided to do as at the follow visuals.



Little piece of mangrove.

The little piece of mangrove were design for
tying plants (in that case Java moss) but they
also play an aesthetic role and contribute to the
harmonic general view of U R B A N AQUASCAPING.

---------------------------------------------------------------------



U R B A N AQUASCAPING
is about harmony between
Hardware and Software.


Hardware is done and now there is plenty of
work on the Software (Flexibility is important).
