How is everyone's LED's doing? Mine....not so well. I will post pics tonight to show how they look. I have two small LED strips that I am going to remove because the LED's are very dim and I think they are causing a draw on the system making everything dim. I am going to try and salvage what I have before investing in another type like tekkguy's

I was thinking the same thing with my set up. I thought maybe I didn't seal them right

I have a 6" strip near my HOB filter outlet and it gets splashed occasionally so that would explain why two quit there. but the other strip is right where the power feed comes in and is near a corner. Yes some condensation may build up under the lid but I think that shouldn't bother them.

I would hate to have to seal around every little strip.

The LEDs you ordered did recommend that you seal around them for added security against condensation and splashing.

I got some of the same ones from him a month ago and they flicker occasionally from day one. Not sure if it's a poorly wired power source on our end or bad wiring in the LEDs themselves.

They are AWESOME. I don't have a photo of them vs. the stock lighting, but I'll try and take one tonight.

I do have photos of the installation. I didn't wire a switch in, so they have to be plugged, unplugged to turn them on and off .... I'll be re-doing some of the wiring to include a switch at some point.

I'll try and get the photos uploaded later.
