Coralife BioCube 29 LED Bars
Has anyone tried to add additional LED bars to their BioCube? Mine is set up as a reef system with live rock, corals and fish.
I bought 4 additional LED bars and installed them 2 ea lunar blue and cool white. I don't know if they're enough light to replace the daylight and actinic blue CFL bulbs or if I still need to run all the lights.
Any thoughts on this?
I don't think those lights can replace the your normal running lights, those would be used for a Fish only tank, won't sustain corals. You need better LED's if you plan on keeping Corals under there.
I'm not exactly sure what LEDs were talking about. Are they additional stock ones that come with the tank?
For LEDs I usually look at wattage (don't know if this is proper). I'm currently running 4 led strips across mine a 9w each

I also have a OCEANIC BIOCUBE 29 ... i know what you talking about .. i recently added a set of cool white LEDs to the bank of extra four **have another 2 on order** so far so good with keeping CORALS .. i have mostly softies but i believe once i add all the LEDS **4 in TOTAL i should be able to keep just about every kind of CORAL *within reason** i'm new to the WHOLE SALT WATER tank thing so im learning as i go .... i do find it curious that not a lot of people in forums talk about the NEWER OCEANIC 29 biocubes with the extra LED lighting in the hood ** and believe you me i have searched high and low .... ill keep you posted on how things go wiht all the lights going for CORALS
