  Whats in the box

  • 1 x 3 TUBE 30CM MARINE LED TUBE SYSTEM Model MML-SWT3A-30 ready to plug in and go.
  • 3 x sets of Universal hood/glasstop mounting clips
  • 24V DC Power supply with AC Power cable and plug
  • All necessary cables and connections
  • Your choice of Optic lenses to suit the depth or your aquarium


Optional Items

  • This system comes with 2 universal mounting clips per tube for glasstop and under hood mounting. If you want tank brackets you can order these from our TANK BRACKETS page, if you want a hang kit you can order from HANG KITS


MML-SWT3A-30 is a 30cm 3 tube full Spectrum marine tube system using high performance LEDS and designed to produce high light with the perfect spectrum for coral reefs and highlighting reds and blues in fish.

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-SWT3A-30 has a full spectrum for marine aquariums with UVA leds to make those corals pop like you've never seen them.

Fully dimmable with a tried and proven blend of leds for marine, the MML-SWT3A-30 an outstanding performer and produces a beautiful shimmer in the water like 10 metres down on an equatorial reef at midday.

  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.


  Custom Lengths

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.

  Flexible mounting


  Full Spectrum

Featuring a complete full marine spectrum hitting all the right spectrum spots for max coral growth and pop while highlighting reds and blues in fish perfectly.

  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.


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.

The onboard drivers respond to PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) dimming signals which results in the most energy efficient dimming.   

  Results speak for themselves

Many customers have sent in MakeMyLed tank shots showing how effective these high powered marine lights are on their marine aquariums. Here's a few of them, these aren't downloaded web web pics they are 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-SWT3A-30 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

  • Measurements were taken with tubes 13cm apart.
  • PAR will be approx 20% higher if tubes are 9cm apart and 40% higher if tubes are 5cm apart.
  • 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.

  Beam (Optic) Angle Selection

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.

Beam Angle  Usage
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

  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. Great LED Lights

    Posted by sab on 16th Apr 2018

    Fantastic light output from these LED lights.
    Light spectrum really makes the tank look intense and the actinic leds bring it to another level.
