    I'm looking at some LED strip lights from Current USA and Ecoxotic. Both are touting the "shimmer" effect that the lights produce. I've seen some Youtube videos of tanks with LED lighting and if the videos are a good representation I'm not so sure that I like the shimmer. I found some of the videos to be distracting or almost annoying. In other videos I didn't notice much shimmer. Could someone with LEDs please comment on that issue? Thanks.:gw

    To me it looks more like you're trying to sell something.

    I personaly don't like those types of LED for an aquarium. But saying that they may work for a very small nano, as a moon lighting!

    Give us your tank spec and i will give you some sugestions on LED types! :)

    The shimmer is very subtle btw. We use them at the store. The tanks are shot in a way to show off the same shimmer as an mh
