MML-FWT2C-180 is a 180cm 2 TUBE Full Spectrum combo tube system combining the power of 3W high performance LEDS for depth an intensity and colour tunable 3-in-1 RGB leds for colour tuning. Designed to produce high light with the perfect spectrum for planted, community and fish display tanks.
Fully Plug & Play, all components are plug compatible allowing you to add, remove or swap any of the MakeMyLed range of LED fixtures and to swap in and out any of the MakeMyLed dimmer/controllers and power supply range at any time.
Tube systems like this are perfectly suited for under hood installation including retrofitting into molded plastic hoods, being only 3cm in diameter and weighing only 100g per 30cm, they are very light weight small footprint tubes suitable for suspension mounting using the optional suspension kit, for resting on the aquarium glass-top using the supplied universal clips or for rim mounting using the optional acrylic brackets. Tubes can be custom spaced to suit your tank top and can be rotated in the holding clips for directional lighting or to eliminate glare.
Model MML-FWT2C-180 has a full spectrum, hitting all the photosynthesis peaks for unrivaled growing power and lush growth of both green and red fresh water plants and a a very high CRI (colour Rendering Index) for natural colour reproduction and for highlighting blues and reds in fish.
Fully dimmable and colour tunable with a tried and proven blend of Cool White 6500K, Neutral White 4000K, 660nm Deep Red and 405nm UV Purple power leds and RGB 3-in-1 colour tunable leds, the MML-FWT2C-180 an outstanding performer and produces a beautiful shimmer in the water like natural sunlight on a clear pond when you ripple the water.

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.
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.
Custom lengths are available. MakeMyLed circuit boards are 29CM long and we can do custom length tubes by reducing tube length by 1cm per 30cm without affecting the number of LEDS. e.g. a 150cm tube can be cut down to 145cm, a 60cm tube can be cut down to 58cm. To order a custom cut like this add a note in the order confirmation box during checkout or on the paypal confirmation screen if using the checkout with paypal option.
We can also cut shorter than 1CM per 30CM e.g. cut 90cm tubes down to 75cm for example. To do this we have to remove one bank of leds and space the remaining banks evenly. e.g. a 90cm tube cut down to 75cm would have 2 banks of leds with a space both ends and in the middle instead of 3 banks of leds. To order a custom cut like this select the length lower than the length you need and add a note in the order confirmation box during checkout or on the paypal confirmation screen if using the checkout with paypal option.
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.
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.
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.
The low resistance circuit boards have an onboard microprocessor controlled constant current LED driver circuit to deliver optimum current for one bank of 6 leds and to protect those leds from external power spikes and surges, this results in a very stable, reliable and long life system. The design is modular in that longer MakeMyLed systems can be made by joining boards together and applying power at one end only.
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.

|MML-FWT2C-180 PAR READINGS||Height from light to bottom of tank in cm|
Use the chart below to work out what beam (optic) ang e lenses you ne d for your tank. NOTE: Make sure to include the distance from the light to the tank top when worlking out the height. For more information about beam angles, visit our LEDS 101 page.
|120°||Wide beam for height up to 45cm|
|90°||Tighter beam for height 46cm to 60cm|
|60°||Moderately narrow beam for height 61cm to 75cm|
|45°||Narrow beam for height over 75cm|
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.

I spent a long time making the decision to purchase these lights, and I’m so glad I did. I was tempted to cheap out and get something nasty from eBay but this is my favorite aquatic item I have bought by far. Everything else I have is 2nd hand, but if your going to spend money, do it on lights.
Setting a program from my phone is awesome. Super impressed with delivery time.
I really can’t recommend highly enough
