 Hi  Friends,
 Need  suggestion  of  LED  based  lights  for  tank  size  of  LBH  -  36x18x20  inches   ...   to  reduce  cost  in  terms  of  electricity  .
 Currently  running  with  3.5  watts  per  gallon  ..

 You  ll  need  3  of  these
 http://www.rapidled.com/12-led-plug-n-play-retrofit-kit/
 
 Just  talk  to  them  and  get  the  royal  blues  replaced  with  XPG  cool  whites.  60deg  optics  for  dutch  style  and  40deg  for  an  iwagumi  style
 
 Or  you  could  note  the  stuff  and  pic  same  from  here  http://www.ledgroupbuy.com/  ,  few  costs  can  vary.
 
 
 
 Now  thats  for  bigtime  power  saving,  and  you  just  cant  compare  these  with  local  LED  floodlites  etc

 But  I  would  say  always  go  for  lesser  wattage  LED's  and  have  more  number  of  LED's  to  cover  the  entire  surface  area  of  the  tank.
 
 If  you  are  using  a  30Watts  LED,  you  will  have  to  really  place  the  led  far  away  from  the  tank  surface  for  the  light  to  cover  the  major  part  of  the  surface  area.  Since  10W  +  led  light  does  not  have  any  optics,  you  will  have  to  really  place  them  in  a  height  for  the  light  beam  to  cover  the  surface  area  of  the  tank.

 @Saikumar,
 The  site  you  refered  are  not  based  out  of  India,  so  are  the  products  not  readily  available  in  India?
 
 @Shelly,
 Couple  of  questions:-
 1.  As  height  of  tank  is  around  20  inches  ,  how  about  penetration  of  light  as  I  have  ADA  based  substrate  and  growing  some  Glosso  and  HC
 2.  There  are  LED  flood  lights  also  available  some  thing  like  [  http://www.ebay.in/itm/10-watts-9-LED-Flood-Light-Water-Proof-Out-Door-Design-Warm-White-Light-/230755307486?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_203&hash=item35ba168fde  ]  
 how  these  are  different  to  led  based  lights  soemthing  from  rapidled?
 3.  What  is  the  required  wattage  requirement  in  LED  to  have  3  watts  per  gallon  light  source
 4.  For  10  watts  LED  ,  how  much  height  i  should  have  from  the  water  surface  and  for  higher  wattage  are  these  optics  adjustable  for  fixed  at  the  time  of  purchase.
