 Hey  Experts!!!
 After  a  long  wait  and  reading  and  research  I  have  now  finally  decided  to  make  my  own  DIY  setup  of  LED  for  my  1feeter  tank  made  specially  for  testing  of  the  DIY  led  setup.
 During  the  research  I  read  about  CREE  brand  LED’s  of  XPG  make  ...but  did  not  succeed  to  find  them  here  in  India  hence  decided  to  try  my  hands  on  a  lot  heard  EDISON  brand  LED’s.
 All  your  suggestions  are  valuable  ...so  please  be  free  to  give  your  advice  and  feedback.
 I  am  really  inspired  by  the  works  of  Aquasky  and  our  fellow  hobbyist  Shelly  in  terms  of  fabrication  of  the  acrylic  sheets  and  would  love  to  do  something  like  that  for  my  DIY  setup...
 Kindly  help  me  out  with  good  reasonable  acrylic  fabricator  in  Mumbai  if  possible  and  also  help  with  various  deigns  that  can  be  opted  for...
 
 Following  are  the  LEDS  that  have  been  brought  :
 1)  3w  cool  white  6500K  (4Nos.)
 2)  1w  Neutral  white  4500K  (2Nos.)
 3)  1w  Warm  white  2700K  (2Nos.)
 4)  1w  Royal  Red  (2Nos.)
 5)  1w  Royal  Blue  (1Nos.)
 
 Also  necessary  anodized  aluminium  extrusion  sheet  has  been  bought.
 
 Thanks
 Sunny

 Depends  on  the  distance  between  your  led  setup  and  the  tank  water  surface,  if  you  keep  it  around  6  inches  then  you  don't  need  optics.

 As  Nidhi  said,  it  depends  on  the  height  at  which  you  place  the  led  setup.  If  you  are  placing  it  on  top  of  the  tank,  then  go  for  the  smallest  degree  optics  that  you  can  get.

 Lesser  the  better.
 
 Dim  4  controller  is  not  available  in  India.  You  need  to  get  it  from  US.

 Sunny  you  dont  need  optics  in  this  case.  If  you  must  then  60  degrees  will  suffice
