TrueLumen LED Strips 36" 3-Way Splitter Cable
NICE ADDITION TO MY FLUORESCENT HOOD
I ADDED TWO OF THESE 10 INCH LED STRIPS TO MY FLUORESCENT HOOD FOR SPECIAL EVENING EFFECTS USING THE INCLUDED ADHESIVE STRIPS. I DID NOT USE THE TINY SCREWS THAT WERE INCLUDED. THE LED STRIPS THAT I USED WERE THE 12K WHITE/453 ACTINIC BLUE TYPE. I USED ONLY 2 LEGS OF THE 3 WAY SPLITTER CABLE WITH THE 12 VOLT POWER SUPPLY. THE 2 STRIPS AND SPLITTER CABLE FIT NICELY IN THE HOOD WITHOUT DISTURBING THE FLUORESCENT TUBE. I FOLLOWED DIRECTIONS VERY CAREFULLY. I DO NOT USE THE FLUORESCENT LIGHT AND LED STRIPS TOGETHER BECAUSE IT MAKES THE AQUARIUM LOOK TOO BRIGHT AND THE COLORS ARE WASHED OUT. THIS SHOW AQUARIUM IS IN MY TELEVISION/MEDIA ROOM. THE FLUORESCENT LIGHT AND LED STRIPS ARE PLUGED INTO SEPARATE ELECTRIC STRIPS WITH SWITCHES. AT NIGHT I SWITCH OFF THE FLUORESCENT LIGHT AND SWITCH ON THE LED STRIPS. THE 2 LED STRIPS USED ALONE GIVES THE TANK A WONDERFUL SHIMMERING LOW LEVEL BLUE/WHITE GLOW THAT IS BEAUTIFUL TO WATCH.

The strips are very easy to install using the adhesive strips. The lighting improvement over the standard fluorescent bulb (in my 37.5 gal., 18 in. deep tank) is well worth the cost in viewing pleasure of the fish. As the strips are waterresistant, I installed them under the flipup cover in the tank hood. Great to improve an existing hood lighting.
