Need help with diy LED project Answered
Hello, I am wanting to light my fishtank by using LED's... it is a really big fish tank so this must be a custom job, and i am interested in this field of work. I understand the basics of DC current, and i can solder... but i am still a n00b!
I have 100 LEDs just like these http://cgi.ebay.com/100-5mm-6000mcd-LED-Lamp-Ultra-Bright-Blue-LEDs-DIY_W0QQitemZ350034574270QQihZ022QQcategoryZ66948QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
and i was wanting to use like, 50 or more if you guys think i need it. I understand the need for resistors and my goal, if possible, is to use as few resistors as possible! since they are not readily available to me.
My plan is to use two long separate strands with, say 25 LEDS on each. Is this possible if i can find a 12v+?
is this possible?
Do i need to use series or parallel wiring? ( i want to use fewer resisters)
Can i make two separate strands using one power supply
Which values do i need to use to find resistors?
Thank you guys so much, I have been wanting to work on this project for a long time, but these questions have always kept me.
