RESEARCHERS, HOBBYISTS & PROFESSIONALS:
Create Your Own Spectrum At No Extra Charge


If your project needs extra PAR, lumens, or a completely customized combination of high-power LEDs, here's where you can create a truly custom spectrum for the same price as our preconfigured fixtures. Start by selecting your preferred fixture length,and then use the "drag and drop" tool below to create a 12" circuit board with any 15 LEDs of your choice. Finally, choose the beam angle you want us to build into your fixture. Fixtures contain one circuit board per foot, except the 18" fixture which contains one board and the 30" fixture which contains two boards.  We will repeat your custom LED pattern every 12" in your fixture. Your fixture will be hand built in Texas and carries a three year unconditional warranty against defects in workmanship or materials.
Over 500 million color options are possible!
*Note: UV LEDs carry a $1 per LED surcharge

Custom LED Strip

The Design It Yourself LED configurator allows you to build your personalized LED lighting system. You select the fixture length, color spectrum and beam angle…and we do the rest!  Commercial-grade, IP66 Waterproof LED light fixture assembled with a custom light spectrum.  With the LED configurator, you can configure over 565 million color combinations.  Build My LED is the first and only lighting company to give you real-time performance estimates on your new lighting fixture, including Lumens, Watts, Micromoles, CCT and CRI.  Like our preconfigured LED products, all of our custom spectrum products utilize the world’s most efficient LEDs (we use top-bin LEDs from top-tier manufacturers like Philips, Osram, Everlight, etc.), precision optical systems and solid-state electronics.  We design our LED fixtures to maximize the amount of light on target per electrical input watt, so you can create the most efficient lighting design possible.

Note: Since we are customizing this fixture to your exact specifications, we cannot accept returns, refunds or exchanges on custom-built lighting systems.

  1. great light fixture got misconfigured

    Posted by David E. on Apr 6th 2014

    Overall, I am pleased with the quality of the light. It is a great product, unfortunately the builder did not get get my custom design correct, its close but not right. Perhaps a QC check of the LED configuration is needed for the custom designs. It's a bit off balance now, but the plants probably don't mind too much.
    What I ordered and what I got respectively was:
    STLTSLTUTLSTLTS
    STLSTLSTLSTLSTL


  2. Great Product

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 7th 2014

    Just what I needed for my controlled lighting vivarium


  3. Great lights

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 5th 2014

    Great lights, leds are super bright and everything is built with quality. Will be buying more


  4. I stopped looking for my light

    Posted by chicken on Jan 28th 2014

    I stopped looking for my light, a BML custom, over a 12x36", 30 gallon, hanging 7" above the water - at this height there's a real nice shimmer to the tank and still there's PAR over 50umol, 12" under water - very nice, BML!

    The plants are going to need a lot of CO2 w/this light. But, you knew that, right?

    The dimmer options, they're nice too. Not a bad option to have, if you asked me.


  5. Best light ever

    Posted by Ben on Nov 15th 2013

    Man, man, man, I'm definitely impressed with BML's quality. How it's hand-made and super sleek, fixture is flawless(they even modified it to 17.5" from the original 18" for me at no additional cost). And thanks to Apexdv, my corals wouldn't get melted because I have the dimmer controller...the light is hella bright. Too bright actually. Light is custom with my choosing of leds.
    Here's a teaser.

    Very happy with the complete transaction. From the assistance of building to my requirements to the delivery and set-up. Hopefully in several months I can display the plants success with some photos for you to see!


  7. Great color and spread

    Posted by Steven on Sep 24th 2013

    We ordered our custom set up on Thursday and had them by MOnday. Nick was a great help and the lights look great.


  8. Best Light for the money!!!

    Posted by Matt H. on Sep 24th 2013

    I purchased a 48" back in January. I loved it so much that I purchased a 12" for my sons Nano cube. I have the great tank mounts on them and have the light just sitting on the ends of the tank. (I am not a fan of canopy's, so I opt for the mounts.) For both set ups, I went with the 14K custom design (with UV) and have zero regrets. I also have the lights controlled by my apex for the dimming function. Two different tanks, same room (opposite walls), one apex all because I bought the apex cable for the first light. It gives the option to control two lights with same cable. For my 75 gallon, I have the spectrum intensity at 90% and for the nano, just 30%. May just go as high as 40, maybe 50 at the most because it is only sitting approximately 3-4 inches above water line.

    Again, great product, great company, very knowledgeable staff who know what they are talking about. Spoke to Nick and Randy several occasions. Thanks guys!!! Looking forward to the latest product you have on the design table.

    P.S. I have a 180 Gallon build in the future! Looking for more control on each color this time. (Hint Hint):)


  9. My goldfish pop with color

    Posted by Samantha on Sep 24th 2013

    I ordered the 72' for a 120g planted tank with goldfish. I know very little about LEDs and nick made the configuration for me. I haven't been disappointed. My lights are growing better (than with a T5) and have more bright greens and reds. The goldfish pop against the green of the plants. Their oranges and golds are bright and scales are shiny. Overall this was a great investment.


  10. Supplementation of ai sol blues

    Posted by Dean on Sep 24th 2013

    I purchased a 36in custom fixture to help fill out the spectral range missing from my ai sols. While the fixture has only been running over my tank for about two weeks, so far I am very pleased with my sps coral response--definite increase in vigor and coloration. The fixture appears to be very well made and installation was a snap. Good product and nice people to deal with.

Technical Note:

We use average spectroradiometric data for each LED type to estimate fixture performance and perform these tests in a laboratory environment. In practice your actual photometric results may vary. In addition, LED output will vary slightly both in spectral content and radiometric flux within the LED manufacturer’s bin tolerance. In normal use these variances are insignificant. If you are using a fixture in a research environment please contact us and we can provide performance details for the specific fixture if need be. The performance details we publish are taken from actual production fixtures and therefore include optical, thermal and electrical losses. They therefore meet the guidelines established in the official IES test protocol for measuring light output of solid-state lighting products. Some companies only list the performance specifications of the LED, which is not an accurate method of assessing the radiometric performance of a finished lighting system.
