single kessil amazon 150 for 30xh

I was looking at the possibility of using the kessil "amazon" 150w ( really 32) LED on my 30xh. tank is 24x12x24h.. will one spot light cover and will i get enough penetration in a tank that deep..i have read some of the other posts regarding this fixture, but could not find anyone who has actually been using the light for any time. if anyone out there has been using this light now for some time, please tell me how it has been as far as plant growth/health.. this would be a great fixture for me if it really works...i have no experience with LED's thus far..

I am using this light on a 24x12x14 and I have had good results with it I am able to grow HC at 8 to 9 hours a day. I am dealing with hair algae right now it grows that great. I would be hesitant about that deep of a tank, unless more hours on per day is ok with you. But it also depends on the plants you plan to have? What do you plan on keeping?

well i was hoping to be able to keep some of the more difficult stem plant and bottom cover plants like HC..maby i could hang the light a bit closer to the surface..like 7-10" ..would that be to close?
