now that i looked at it, it has a different LED light then the normal fluval spec. not sure what it would compare to, but i assume it might be better then mine. both have 31 leds, but mines "ample" and yours is "high luminosity". it may be hard to compare it to a light u don't have, but it should be better? i say try it first, and just be ready to upgrade as soon as you realize its not quite cutting it.
