There were several categories this could have gone under but I figured since this group focuses on LED's, you are probably best equipped to answer.
I am purposely not including details of what I plan on using other than size and type because the conversation could easily end up going 50 different directions and I am only asking for simple replies. I won't get into a long drawn out discussion.
The short of it is that I am building a small encased waterfall with leds above it to illuminate but the leds will not been seen directly. The unit will be about 12" tall and 30" wide +/-. I am using 5mm RGB ca leds. My question is how many leds would you recommend? I have plenty of them and shift registers. I want to keep it simple but have a full look as well.
What do you think? 10, 15, 20, 30 or 60?
