LED Retrofit Kits

What does retrofit mean? Retrofit lights are lighting components that are retroactively fitted into an existing aquarium canopy, hood, etc. Basically, an LED retrofit is the guts of an LED fixture without the housing.

An aquarium LED retrofit makes an ideal aquarium retrofit kit because it is compact and produces little heat. An LED retrofit is especially useful as a nano led light that must ft into a tight hood where heat is an issue. A led strip light makes the best led refugium light because it can mount inside the stand allowing easy access to the aquarium sump.

Many aquarists create a custom hybrid T5 LED retrofit to reap the benefits of both technologies. T5 lighting provides an even light spread while LED strips create shimmer and fluorescence. "
