Hey all, looking to upgrade the lighting in my Fluval Edge to LEDs for better aesthetics/less power consumption. I'd prefer some sort of "plug and play" option if possible; don't want to deal with retrofitting or solder work if I can help it. Maybe some sort of hanging/swing arm type light? Pretty new to all of this stuff, so I'm not sure what sort of budget to work with, but let's keep it reasonable (maybe $150-200) if at all possible. Thanks.

there is definitely options out there... i had a fluval edge but never ended up going fully through with it.

Fluval Edge LED kit from nanotuners.com

Its designed specifically for this tank and i dont think you could beat it. Anyone that owns a fluval edge would tell you that its worth it.

Par 38 bulbs/ Par 30. and switching the stock bulbs with LED MR11: PicoD on here has two of them running with the mr11 leds on her fluval edge. bulbs are anywhere from 75-115 dollars each and require a swing arm fixture. for 2 and 2 fixtures your looking at close to 300 with shipping +mr11's [40+ish} so i would just go with the above link..
