    It's 7.5 watts, and would be 1-sided. Would work for a 15 square inch screen.

    Santa Monica thank you for the quick reply, what would you recommend then? two 3 watt led bulbs? and that should cover two screens of 2 by 2?
    Also what reflector would you suggest to make it two sided? Do you know a place online where i can buy it?

    Thanks!

    One 3-watt LED can cover a 2 X 2 screen, so one on each side would do it. Or both on one side with a reflector on the other. Plastic mirror works well.

    This is good, now we are making it somewhere. I can't wait to see what a full year of testing produces with this design.

    Very interesting design - was there a demand for in-tank methods?

    Thanks for info.

    There totally was. Nano people are the least likely to be able to build a waterproof acrylic box and put it above their display (although some did).

    Wow. Well I look forward to seeing these in action. Are the microwave trays (nice find) white for good reflection?
