 Sorry  madan,  knowing  about  you,  i  though  the  measurements  will  be  in  FEET!!!  
 
 Having  some  problem  with  my  camera!!!  beta  boy  -  help  needed!!!
 
 Well  i  have  84  LEDS  on  a  54X24X24  Tank..  That  is  equivalent  to  having  250W  MH  all  over  my  tank.
 
 But  for  planted,  you  can  go  with  less  as  you  dont  need  that  much  intensity,  or  can  pack  up  the  front  with  more  LEDs  for  Carpet  plants  play  with  the  positioning.  
 
 Scorpio  -  the  surface  area  is  about  864  Sq  inches,  and  you  would  need  about  54  minimum  with/without  optics  to  get  a  200W  MH  Effect...  can  lower  is  further  if  required  based  on  your  requirement.

 Thanks  beta,  do  come  and  take  the  pics  tommrow.
 
 Madan,  15X10  =  150sq  inches  and  i  think  with  12-15  LEDs  you  will  be  sending  in  250W  of  power  into  it  easily!!!  ..
 
 Costing  is  kindda  vague  as  everything  is  in  testing  phase.  But  it  is  not  that  Cheap  though.  
 
 But  if  you  are  all  using  MH  and  need  to  replace  your  bulbs  every  year,  then  taking  into  consideration  the  saving  on  electricity  the  amount  invested  can  be  recovered  in  4  years.  And  since  these  are  known  to  have  life  of  over  8-10  years..  
 
 LEDs  is  for  hobbyists  who  want  to  be  into  the  hobby  for  long  -  this  is  my  humble  opinion.

 Hi  PK,
 
 Congratulations,  indeed  a  long  wait.  Hope  the  resistor  on  your  cam  does  the  trick  again.<CLikcHK>
 Is  it  on  the  tank  already?
 
 Good  luck  with  them.

 Boss  PK!
 Have  I  been  long  enough  in  the  hobby  to  qualify?
 
 Make  plans  to  fabricate  1  set  each  for  15  x  10  inch  surface  area  for  2  planted  tanks  and  and  communicate  pa,  TIA.
   Very Happy

 madanji,  i  think  you  are  the  most  qualified  person  whom  i  know  of,  to  have  such  a  big  tank!!!   Thumbs Up  
 
 Sai:
 1.  my  tank  is  54  inches  X  24  inches  X  24  inches  and  it  has  84  LEDS  on  my  tank  and  that  is  equivalent  to  having  3,  250W  MHs'  to  cover  the  whole  Area  of  the  tank.
 2.  Madan's  tank  surface  area  is  15X10=150  Sq  inches,  and  having  12-15  LEDS  will  give  the  tank  an  output  of  having  a  250W  MH  Over  it.
 
 Approx  costings  will  be  about  4  McChicken  value  meals  (@  MacD)  Per  LED,  including  Driver  and  Lens  ...

 Since  I  don't  patronize  McD's  all  that  much,  how  about  a  price  in  "broast"  chickens?  1  full  "broast"  chicken  costs  INR  140.
