    I have or rather had a set of Key K3 LED lights that have just died rather spectacularly. The control unit gave an almighty bang then nothing. A real concern as I have corals on the tank. The only immediate solution is to buy a fluval led from my local shop which would not be my choice of light. I have the original freshwater lights (I think). I could put done fluorescents in but not sure. Any guidance on this would be appreciated as I don't want to lose corals that are well established

    Help!

    many thanks for the offer. unfortunately i'm up in the midlands. ive managed to get my original t8 fluorescent working. there are 2 lights a white and blue. they were my original lights before i switched to leds. hopefully will suit until i can sort the issue over the next week.

    If you can get the unit sorted within a week, you'll probably be OK. If it's longer, then I'd start worrying. An advert requesting a loan of a unit from a local in the wanted section could be worthwhile if you are worried :wink:

    I've ordered a new set of LEDs. Should be here on Thursday. The existing unit is irrepairable. The were from FishSteet and now obsolete. Thanks!
