Were do I start, What doe I need and Where can I find it. I bought the light used and can't even find a brand on the light fixture. There are 5-6 LED's, One is out and the others are to dim to see unless the room is dark. Im just looking for a slightly brighter LED to replace them.

Well, not saying you couldn't add better LEDs to rhe fixture but those are moonlights, they're jot meant to be used for anything other than night viewing

Even with my living room extremely dark you still can't really see them, not very effective for nighttime viewing. I think that all of them maybe going out. One has already. I was looking for a slightly brighter moonlight effect.

I use led tape light. The only place I found the all blue is at Bulbs Plus. Cost me about $45 for two 2' strips. They are plenty bright and most people that come over notice them right away.

Moonlights are NOT for nightime veiwing. They are to simulate moonlight for the fish. If you want nightime viewing use RED leds as it does not disturb the fish. Moonlights are usually dim but it sounds like the one led that is out is messing up the chain of leds on your fixture. Message Hooked for a price on repairing your unit.

Also very expensive. A 16ft roll with dimmer and driver is 16 dollars on ebay, 20 dollars if you want a USA seller.
