Led Light

Recommended Posts

I just got my new aquarium light with 30 LED bulbs inside. The light uses 1.8 watts, so I was wondering if I can leave it on all day without having a spike in my electric bill?

At 1.8 watts, it will cost you less than fifty cents per month if you were to run it 24 hours a day.

Even though it won't cost you lots, you shouldn't keep aquarium lights on 24 hrs/day. Fish need night time too. They do sleep, and sleeping in the dark is a lot less stressful than sleeping with the lights on (since they have no eyelids).

I hate aquarium hoods because they get so gross from the bubbles popping at the top of the water, it makes mineral deposits. I had a hood from nnnnnn that was crappy and the screws would always get rusty. Then I got a better hood that has glass over the bulbs so it's not so nasty. I've never seen an LED hood though...where did you find that? I love LED lights and I want one now!
