If you are looking for an affordable alternative to upgrade your existing T5/T8 lighting to LEDs, Fluval EcoBright is the way to go! They consume far less energy than the traditional lighting and are rated for 50,000 hours with a 3 year guarantee.
The best bit is that you can retro fit these LEDs into any existing T5/T8 ballasts with the fixtures provided. You can fit two of these units in your ballasts.
I have tried both the EcoBright and AquaSky versions and went for the latter because of the various colour options and intensity of light it offers.
However, the EcoBright is a very good unit and is really bright. I would not recommend this if you have got very demanding plants in your tank but otherwise it does wonders with low light plants such as Anubias, Sagittaria, etc. and the fish look amazing as well! It has two modes for day and night settings and comes with a handy remote which allows you to dim the lights as well.
Pros: Very Affordable, excellent quality, great lighting for fish and low-light plants, stylish and sleek design, low energy consumption.
Cons: Not the best light for high intensity plants.
I highly recommend this product. If you don't mind spending a few extra bucks, go for the Fluval AquaSky version.
