    Does anyone use submersible LEDs in their tanks? I was wondering if they have enough power to grow low light plants? I currently have no lid for one of my tanks but really need something as I plan to have zebra danios in there which could jump. I have got a piece of plastic which fits well but would not allow over head light through.

    Check out this sight and you will probably have more sights to check out that may be cheaper.

    I wouldn't use them to grow plants. There are many cheap options for lights that will sit on top of the tank glass lid. You can get a dome light fixture and put an LED bulb in there?

    Do you maybe have a couple of pictures we can see? This might help us see what your options are.

    I was thinking instead of the plastic thing on top could I use a condensation tray with an overhead lighting system?

    I don't see why you couldn't try what you are thinking of doing.
