    I have 2 20w no problems too, so far anyway. I think it's not as large as a 50w light so I think I'll just let this one slip.

    Anyway, is anyone interested in taking the last 30w light?

    Once you remove the driver and compartment you're left with just the emitter and heatsink with the + and - wires:



    + and - wires lead to the drivers in the cabinet. I want to add heatsinks to them too to keep them cooler:



    I used molex connectors (top of the pic) to link all three LEDs so it's easier to remove the LED or drivers when I need to instead of having to unrwap/desolder/untwist the wires.

    Other side of the driver is the AC side which plugs into the power socket. I used a bus connector to link LED 1 and 3 to one timer so the lights are staggered - LED 2 turns then LED 1 and 3 30 mins later so I don't spook the fish.

    Hope that helps.

    They are an australian company based in bayswater vic and offer 5 years warranty. They have an ebay store so worthwhile to bid on t/em instead of buying outright.

    Mine are no longer available but were $75 each outright. I bid on 6 of them and ended up getting all of them for an average cost of $15.

    I bought mine from an Australian company too, I paid 40 for a 60W light. They are made really well and are apparebtly 100% waterproof. Was going to pull it apart and check if I can add some blues, but I want another one first.
