    Basic rule of thumb is about 18 square inches of surface area per CREE LED

    So 20x20 = 400 inches of surface area.  Divide by 18 is about 22 total LEDs.

    The 22 LEDs should be in a 2:1 ratio of Royal Blue and Neutral White.

    For this tank you are looking at the following:

    7 Neutral White LEDs

    14 Royal Blue LEDs

     

    To make the driver/power easy you can get 1 MakersDRIVER @ 1000mA

    and 1 180w power supply

    Each color would be on a channel of the MakersDRIVER so you can control the final color of the light easily.
