Lighting my 72g bow fronts w/led

I'm currently running t5ho on one tank 2 bulbs 4" over the glass top on one tank for high light, and on the other I'm running 4 t8's directly on top o the tanks or medium light.

These are 22" tall tanks will any of these led fixtures provide enough light? Would I have to run more than one per a tank?

Suggestions?

I have the exact tank and was asking a similar question. I was toldnthe FugeRay would give me medium light and a Ray II would net high light.

I'm also currently running 4 T8s for a low to medium light. I'm thinking about getting the FugeRay myself.

I would really like to try these out but I would like to hear from someone who has done it. I don't want to drop a bunch money on lights that won't work.

Hi Seth

I'm not sure what light the fixtures you noted are putting out but please take note of the PAR charts to find out which fixture would suit your tanks needs (keeping in mind your type of plants, what you're injecting, if any taller plants are going to sheild light, etc).

Finnex RAY II & FugeRAY PAR Data

They show a price for it but there's no option, maybe there out of stock.

Sorry about that. I believe they have enabled the 48" DS again. Looks like they're now live.
