Marineland is going to be offering a new LED light for planted tanks.
I'm looking for a third light for my new 37 gallon column
tank. I'm concerned that the two Marineland Double Bright LED lights just are not enough light to grow the dwarf hairgrass at about 24 inches down. Really, just one of the lights illuminates the hairgrass. One light illuminates the background plants, and the mid-ground gets just spillover light from the foreground and background.
I like the low-profile styling of these two lights, but I think it is just insufficient to meet medium to high light requirements.
Really, this thread should be more about the new LED from Marineland, than about my tank specifically, but what I am asking could apply to others who might consider this light.
There isn't that much information that I can find on this new LED light. I want to see a light spectrum graph and specs for PAR/PUR. This picture of the box is too small:
Also, would two of these be too much lighting for one tank? What I am thinking is that one of these would likely not illuminate the whole tank. I may want to have one for the background and one for the foreground, and use one of the ML Double Bright LEDs for the mid-ground.
Any thoughts or information?
