EconoLux continues their multitude of LED lighting fixtures with this nifty triplex LED strip that can be chained together, similar to the EcoXotic stunner strips but more advanced. SunStrips look very useful for nano reef aquariums, small planted aquariums, or for adding a "shimmering" effect. The strips come in color temperatures of 6500k or 15000k, operate via a 24 volt/100 watt power supply, and can be chained together in series between 4 and 18 units in a row, depending on the size of the strips, which range from 30cm to 1.2 meters!
Although the jury is still out regarding how effective LED lighting is at keeping corals (multiple hobbyists have reported anecdotal information of their corals not thriving/living solely under LED lighting, and Anthony Calfo's preliminary report suggest 75% of coral species cannot be kept under LED lighting alone) supplemental LED lighting for nano aquariums and nature aquariums is often desirable and useful. Even if the technology may not be there yet, LEDs are still very promising and I'm very excited about the future of LED lighting!
