LED lights over tank used for heating tank!
 
On one of my daily sites I visit I came across a article that is just too cool IMO I have to share.

This planted tank has a DIY LED light set up and the owner utilizes the tank water to cool off the hot LEDs and that warm water is returned to heat the tank - HOW AWESOME IS THAT!?!?! :shock:

I know there's 1-2 members here that had wanted to eventually DIY a led light strip and I can't recall the user names so hopefully you will see this and get ideas from it:-D

Very cool! Seems a little beyond my DIY capabilities as I'd probably end up toasting my fish. I can see manufacturers making a retail version of this setup in the future.

Yea I wouldn't pers built it myself neither but I still think the idea is pretty darn cool!

@Pasfur I figured it's neat for both FW/ SW to see and since either one group barley / never crosses the lines to read posts over int he other section I posted it for both to see :-)
