So I have the LED+ over my 40 breeder and couldn't be happier. I have planned for a pretty long time to upgrade all my tanks to LED just because they look better and they last longer ect.

So now I am wanting to upgrade my 40 gallon Oceanic stretch hex. The tank is a lovely 30.5x18.5x21.5 size. I am housing a pair of breeding angels, and the only plants in there is a few amazon swords, wisteria, java moss apongeton and some floating riccia ( soon to be RAOK'ed) I am just curious if you guys think the LED+ will be bright enough at that height to grow those few plants. Right now, I have a single T8 over it, 24 inch. Came with the tank. I wish the LED+ came in 30 inch size.

FWIW I have thought of the FugeRay II but am unsure I want that bright of light since the angels prefer darker waters.

Any thoughts suggestions ect would be great!

The Satellite Plus will do that with no issues. A Satellite Plus is much brighter than a t8. the 24 inch sizes will stretch to 30" easily!
