  Quality Power Supplies

We supply high quality and reliable 24V DC power supplies for all of our lighting systems with world wide certifications . For our local Australian and New Zealand customers, power supplies ship out with an approved IEC plug and cable, for international customers we supply the same AU cable and plug with an adapter for your country.

  Plug & Play System

All components in the system are Plug & Play which means you can swap dimmers/controllers or power supplies at any time, remove tubes from your system or swap tubes around, you can even add tubes to your system within the limits of the power supply.


  Flexible mounting


  Fully Colour Tunable

The MML-FWP5A-30 is fully colour tunable allowing you to select from an array of stunning colour blends or make your own for mood lighting and for highlighting specific colours in fish and plants. The pictures below show some of the many colour blends you can achieve with this light.


  Full Spectrum

Featuring a complete full spectrum hitting all the right spots for the photosynthesis requirements for red and green plants and a wide band in the green part of the spectrum for aesthetics. Red plants will grow red and green plants will grow green.

The CRI (Colour Rendering Index) is very high > 91% which means this lighting system will reproduce natural vivid colours and showcase blues and reds in fish.


  Leading edge technology

MakeMyLed tested many commercial LED products on the market, noted their failings and used this information to design a brand new system from the ground up, a fully plug & play system built to be reliable, built to last and have unrivalled performance. Manufactured in Australia by a small group of passionate perfectionists with over 30 years experience in aquarium lighting, built to order in our factory in Adelaide South Australia using quality components and shipped direct to your door.


The basic building block of MakeMyLed systems is the cleverly designed circuit board. Each MakeMyLed circuit board has 6 x 3W genuine Taiwanese Epistar power leds and high quality clip on acrylic optic lenses. 120°, 90°, 60° and 45° optic lenses available to target light for shallow tanks right up to the deepest tanks.


  Results speak for themselves

Many customers have sent in before and after tank shots showing the great results they are getting growing aquarium plants under MakeMyLed lighting technology. Here's a few actual customer tank shots.


  High PAR rating

Brightness is the measure of how bright lights are to the human eye, PPFD (Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density) often referred to as PAR is the measure of how effective light is to the inhabitants under water and varies according to how deep the water is, decreasing PAR as the water gets deeper. For more information on PAR, visit our LEDS 101 page.

This system comes with a choice of six optical lenses (aka beam angle), 120°, 90°, 60°, 45°, 30° and 15° , each one suits a specific depth range in aquariums. Optical lenses focus the light beam and produce a beam to match the optical angle i.e. 90° produces a 90° beam angle and 60° produces a 60° beam angle, Optic angle is also known as the beam angle. The smaller the angle the higher the intensity at the substrate with lower horizontal area coverage, the higher the angle the lower the intensity at the substrate with higher the horizontal area coverage. For more information about beam angles, visit our LEDS 101  page.

PAR readings at 100% intensity (umol/m2/s measured using a lab grade quantum meter)

MML-FWP5A-180 PAR READINGS Height from light to bottom of tank in cm
 15  30  45  60  75
Beam Angle 
 120°  295  218  160  117  86
 90°  319  234  173  126  92
 60°  344  254  187  137  101
45° 373 292 214 157 115

  • This is a high light system and is fully dimmable so you can run it at lower than full capacity if you don't need that much light.
  • PPFD readings of 50 umol/m2/s or over at the substrate is considered high light and will support sustainable growth in difficult to grow and light demanding plants.

  Plug & Play Dimmers/Controllers

All MakeMyled dimmers/controllers are plug compatible which means you can swap at any time by removing one and and adding another. Dimmers/Controllers are based on PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) technology which is the best and most energy efficient way of dimming LEDS without affecting the life expectancy.

Product Reviews

  1. Really great bang for your buck

    Posted by Dylan Thornton on 14th Mar 2019

    I purchased the 180cm full spectrum panel from MakeMyLED for my new 6ft aquarium after having bought the freshwater tubes for my 2 previous aquariums.
    The build quality is very good and performance is exactly what I wanted.

    I opted for the WiFi controller this time, having used the TC420 controller previously, and I have found it very good to use. Installation was very quick and easy and I love that I can change the settings from my phone from anywhere. I can even check the status of the lights when I am out and about to make sure they are on and using the right settings which is just fantastic.

    Having control of each row of lights is great, you can adjust the output and spectrum to meet your desired effect. There are some built in functions that come pre-programmed which are mostly novelty but you can add your own which is a really great feature.

    I would highly recommend this panel to anyone wanting a professional grade light that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
