An aquarium is a great addition to any home, with colourful fish and cute sea decoration. But if you light it up… you’ll create something really special. Check the 10 best aquarium LED strips of 2020.
How to install LED strips in an aquarium?
It’s really easy, and it doesn’t matter if you have a freshwater tank or salt water.
The first thing you should do is unroll the LED strip completely and connect it to make sure that it’s working properly. Then, insert the LED strip in the aquarium and place it where you want it to go. LED strips for aquarium should be installed with a special waterproof adhesive or some other fixation device that’s water-resistant.
Aquarium LED strips have to be waterproof, with IP65, IP67, IP68 protection, to be able to withstand being submerged. Make sure that you buy a model that resists different temperatures if needed.
Measure your aquarium tank if you need to figure out its volume and then check how many strips you’ll need, and how long they should be. That will also affect the voltage. For your information, 110-120V LED strips have a higher light intensity and can be longer than low-voltage models, but do you need many meters of LED strips for an aquarium? Lower voltage means less power consumption, so make sure you consider all these aspects.
Why buy a LED strip for your aquarium?
Your fish tank will not be the same with millions of different colours traversing through the water! LED strips for aquarium with RGB capabilities can combine the primary colours, so the possibilities are endless. And if you have a truly green habitat with several plants in the aquarium, try a high-brightness model like the SMD 5050 or the SMD 5630, so that the light can get through.
Each model has a set of features. You can even find submersible LED light strips with Wi-Fi connectivity! This means you will be able to control everything with your smartphone, or even with your voice if you connect it to Google Home or Alexa.
What’s your type of aquarium? There are LED strips for marine aquariums, tropical aquariums, coral aquariums and any other type you can think of!
