LED Lighting for a 20 gallon! Help!
Hey there, I'm currently in the process of setting up a planted Iwagumi in a 20 gallon tank.
19.29 x 16.93 x 12.99 in
49 x 43 x 35 cm
But I quickly realised the lighting which came with my tank was absolutely crap for planting!

It came installed with two PL-11watt G23 Fluorescent Red/White blubs.
So I was browsing online and looking for some decent replacements and I came across G23 Corn Bulbs with SMD 5050 LED Lamp AC85-265V. (2nd attached image)
They're pretty cheap, look solid, and come in white and warm white. But I can't seem to find any light spectrum information on the things! :'(
Does anyone know if they're any good for growing plants? If they are, should I buy warm white or plain white, and is two of these LEDS at 16 watts enough for a 20 gallon?
