Hey everyone! im getting to the lighting part of my build and im a little at a loss as to how I should light my refugium. I know i want to build it because i dont have much room in the cabinet for extras so its going to have to be compact. and i know i want LED's so what are your guys thoughts, is there something small and cheap that will do the job and do it well or is building something from a chip the best way or what do you guys think

Lol I think it should grow. I mean people were just using regular cheap ebay led before and throwing it into an aquaclear and cheato were growing.
