| || | Can I change out the bulbs in the Marineland Double Bright Light?
My flourescent light fixture broke so I am now looking for a new lighting system for my 55 gallon goldfish tank. I came across the marineland double bright led hood and it seems like it could fit my needs. I was especially interested in the moonlight feature. However, the total LUX of the blue light is 460nm, and I read real moonlight is more in the 470-480nm range. Would it be possible to somehow replace the 460 nm bulbs with some 470nm bulbs?
If not, would it be possible to just add some extra leds on it? I was planning on building my own fixture anyways, but if I got this and just added the extra 470nm bulbs it would make things soo much easier. I know I would have to have a separate power source, but at least I wouldn't need a heat sink.
Here is a link to the light. If you click on photos you can see how there is a lot of space in between the bulbs.
