A$20.00 you got to spend more then $50 and its $11 shipping but when you get any think like them take your time to put them in your tank

For my sump its a led unit running blue and white leds... the blues very dominate but the macro algae still thrives under it.... My macro algae ony recently started to kick off and wow is kicked off i only had like a few inches and ive got alot more :) i run the return pump which is 3000/trs an hour and another powerhead which is about 2000.
