Right on cue with the halt of domestic LED aquarium light manufacturing, the Honk Kong based Eco-Lamps is now getting some attention for it’s decent looking LED aquarium lights. The Eco-lamps line of LEDs for aquarium use seem to be a good balance of blue and white LEDs clocking in at fair prices. Save for the 12″ unit, all the larger models include 2 white LED strips and 1 blue LED strip. The line includes 10 different sizes and all models are available in a silver or black finish for use with either 110 or 220v.Â 12″ models sporting 25watts of LED power will set you back ~$125 andÂ the largest 80″ unit with 225watts of LED goodness will set you back $2064. Smaller units will have side mounting hinge brackets and larger while larger units are designed to be suspended over the aquarium. Additional features of these lights are hard to glean from the website butÂ this page at least demonstrates their capacity for independent blues and whites as well as a moonlight mode. Eco-lamps can be only be purchased direct on the Eco-sell website. I hope you are reading this Orbitec because this is what happens when American companies are forced out of the market by wasteful patent trolling. We can now probably expect a ton of LED light manufacturers to emerge from Asian manufacturers.
