 Hi,
 
 I  am  planning  to  have  a  48  x  18  x  18  Tank.
 
 .  Want  8mm  glass  -  the  glass  shop  near  me  doesn't  have  shade  free  glass  but  says  he  can  get  if  I  give  him  exact  name/brand  for  it,  someone  can  tell?
 .  LED  Lights,  any  DIY  guide  or  suggestion  (If  costly,  would  use  PL/T5  Tubes  Smile  )?
 
 Thanks  in  advance

 Cant  suggest  anything  with  glasses  but  for  the  led,  suggest  try  for  DIY  with  high  watt  3  watt  leds,  nothing  complicated  as  long  as  you  have  proper  DC  power  supply  which  sums  the  total  power  consumption  of  the  LEDs
 else  my  suggestion  will  be  go  for  4  feet  HO  t5s
 
 just  my  2  cents

 Please  update  your  location  so  that  the  hobbyist  near  your  place  can  help  you.
 
 For  48"  length  tank,  I  would  recommend  12mm  glass.
 What  type  of  tank  are  you  planning  to  make?

 You  can  use  10mm  or  12  mm  modi  guard  clear  glass.  Go  with  T8  tubes  or  PLL.  It  will  be  hassle  free  to  replace  as  you  can  get  them  in  any  shop  and  they  are  cheap.   T5  and  LED's  are  not  only  more  expensive  but  also  difficult  to  find  sometimes

 Thanks  guys  for  reply..
 
 A  bit  far  from  my  place  but  I  was  able  to  get  Saint  Gobain  Cystal  Clear  glass,  8mm..  (Ref:http://www.theaquatools.com/building-your-aquarium).  For  the  time  being  I  will  use  T5  tubes.
 
 Still  in  the  process  of  making  list  of  things  for  a  low  tech  planted  tank...  so  any  particular  suggestions  or  things  to  remember  ?

 8  mm  glass  for  a  4'  tank.  You  are  taking  a  risk.

 At  LFS  they  told  me  that  I  can  use  9W  x  3  LED  Tubes   for  the  mentioned  tank.  It  was  some  brand  from  Banglore.
 
 So  how  about  branded  Syska  LED  tubes,  has  anyone  used  them?
 
 16  W  
 1100  Lumens  
 6000  K  
 
 comes  for  1200/-

 LEDs  are  still  in  the  nascent  stage  when  it  comes  to  planted  tanks,  world  over  people  still  tend  to  use  T5HOs.
 
 For  a  4x1.5x1.5,  8mm  will  suffice,  but  you  will  generally  have  a  mild  bow  on  the  top.  Since  you  want  Extra  Clear,  it  is  generally  3  times  as  expensive  as  Normal  Float  Glass.  So  you  will  be  spending  much  more  on  that.
 
 T5HOs  are  available  as  4'  lamps  delivering  54W  per  tube.  Havells,  Osram,  Phillips  are  available.
