Juwel Rio 180 and custom lights
#1
Hey everyone,

I have a question about this. I am currently using the aquatlantis easy led universal 2.0 in the back socket of the original Rio 180 lightsockets. The front one is off.

But I have a feeling its not good so im looking to possibly get the Fluval Plant 3.0 lights.

My question is would this fit on the rim of a Rio 180 with the extendable caps of that or any other light that would fit in the t5 tube sockets that the Rio 180 has by default that are good for a planted tank. 

Thanks!

Superfish make "Retro LEDs" that fit in the Juwel T8s, and I believe they do similar for T5s.
If at first you don't succeed....
...get someone else to do it! Big Grin

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!

Ooo I cringe with the name Superfish. There isnt anything else aa an option? Id rather invest in something good. I spent 300 euro on these Aquatlantis Easy LED Universal 2.0 and I kinda feel like I got ripped off..no info about them on any forum or w-e Sad

Anything known like Fluval would be cool but idk if thats mountable on a tank with a rim like the Juwels.

I used a fluval plant 2.0 on a rio 240, roma 240, and a couple of rimless tanks. Smile

The aquatlantis LED's are fine as long as you have the plant one and not the marine! Also, you would really need two in your tank.

Ooo how did you mount it on the Rio? Does it work with just the mounting options the fluval comes with or how did you do it?

Yea I have the Aquatlantis Universal one so I guess that works? Right now I have it in the back socket but i slid the whole beam forward so nows in the middle above the water..just doesnt look very nice with the lids sticking out. Id rather get a fluval plant one then instead of another aquatlantis so im curious how you mounted it!

Do you have pics of em mounted maybe? ^^

Great tips both of you! I was watching Cory's (Aquarium Co-op) review on the Fluval 3.0 and he is a big fan of them. So if you can put it on the rims with the extendable ends of the Fluval like @fr44gy mentions then I think I'll look into getting those!

If he's a reseller of their gear then I'd take that into consideration. Read as many reviews as you can of your narrowed down choices. Do you use CO2?
