Low-Med lighting for a 10g

I want a decent-looking light for a 10G.
Plan on mostly low-maintenence, low-demanding plants(Java fern, anubias, crypts, maybe soke of the easier stem plants and such.) Substrate is Amazonia btw.
I havent found much. Thanks in advance.

From Finnex RAY II & FugeRAY PAR Data the chart for the 20 inch long Fugeray is:

Note that at 12 inches it gives you a PAR of 43, and the spread is very good, so only one light would be needed. Low medium light is about 40-45 PAR, in my opinion, so this would be exactly what you are looking for.

Or the Ecoxotica Panorama. I had it on my 10 gallon and it was great. Even selling it now because I upgraded tanks. Here is my sales thread. http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=198085
And here you can read about it. LED Lighting Compendium
Just scroll down and click on the ecoxotica to go to their website. All I did was put a shelf about the tank and hung it on the shelf. That way you can adjust the heigh to get the exact par you are looking for. PM me if you want more info.
