I hope in the near future to start setting up my aquaponics system. As this system will be indoors I was wandering if anyone could give advice on LED Grow lights.

Thanks phil

Phil, check this video for Larry's setup for his microgreens (the same for aquaponics):

Microgreens don't require the same levels of light a more mature plant needs.

I have successfully raised seedlings using multi-colored led strip lights from e-bay. They cost me less than $20.

I just have the blue and red lights turned on.

If you two don't stop this rough-housing somebody is going to end up crying. Sit down and read this tiny ad:
