Hi mate, i guess that will work but why are you looking at full spectrum?

Have you seen they do marine specific led tube replacements?

Thanks aj ,
I got led marine blue and white fitted already ,
I was just looking at the full spectrum lighting system that goes with my tank as a lot of shops and people seem to be going that way ,
Just wondering if it was worth going that way aswell and if it was worth it beneficial wise or not .

Did you upgrade Dave? I use both these lights on my Juwel Rio 240 litre (If  could go back in time I would never have bought this aquarium brand) but the colours just don't do the corals justice. So am looking to remove the lid and upgrade to two of the Red Sea Reef LED series...that's if the clamps are large enough to fit on the bulky Juwel rim brace, cause nothing else does so far   >:(
