Although I didn't do this myself, I've decided my next Frontosa tank will only have blue LEDs.
You can order a DIY blue LED kit with 3W LEDs that are plenty bright but still give that deep water look.
Yes I am. I was going to aim for the bluer lights so that did spark my interest. I'm looking up that kit on google right now. My frontosa tank is going to be right were you walk into the house and I got the a really good deal on the tank,stand, and canopy so I'm willing to spend some extra money to do all the extra things to make it look stunning.
Assuming you're looking at the LED strip, you've got to wire up a controller and give that a power supply. Depending on the controller, if you want dimmable you'll need a source for that as well. Plus, given the size of that heat sink I suspect you'll need a little bit of air flow in your canopy.
I love my LED lighting, but it's still largely a DIY effort. Marineland is trying to break the mold with affordable stuff, but it's not for everyone.
