LED's for planted tanks
Has anyone experimented with LED's or actually uses them still for planted tanks. I know they were supposed to be the next rage but were expensive. They are coming down in price now so I would be curious to know any updated info. Thanks

I haven't sat down and really looked into LEDs in a while, but the LED you would need for a planted tank are still pretty expensive.

I looked into it, and the generic "light your tank" LEDS are not too bad. The ones with the proper spectrum for plants are still, in my opinion, not yet cost-effective. At least, I can't afford them!
Agreed the LEDs with the intensity and spectrum for the planted tank are just to costly to justify investment.
Thanks for the input everyone.

I'm running LEDs on my fluval edge, its rated for 6500k but the reaction from my plants arent as spectacular as my plants under a CFL. They can be expensive but if you DIY, it can be fairly cheap, My MR11's cost 25 bucks for 2 bulbs, but they are expected to last for much longer than halogen and will keep their spectrum for longer than CFLs.
