Pretty cool. In your opinion, would a "one strip" upgrade (for a total of 2) be enough light? 3 seems like metal halide crazy bright

I'm just cycling an ecopico now for some dwarf puffers. I have an additional two strips of lighting since I was going to setup the tank for a saltwater pico reef. The lights seem to be pretty bright and ecoxotic seemed confident that I could grow coral, so I'm hoping plants should grow, too. We'll see.

Sorry to rehash an old thread. Just looking for some info on this light. I bought the ecopico light and it came with the stock strip with 2 12k LEDS and a 453nm blue. I want to order an additional all white strip. My question is , would I have to buy an additional AC adapter or a 2-way splitter or does the strip come with another plug? Thanks!

Typically, but I believe you can still grow plants with the 12k. Unless I'm completely wrong. I wonder how successful the person that posted the pic with all three strips was?

to use more than one strip you'll need a splitter. These lights will grow plants.

I have one of these on my Fluval CHI 5 gallon. I have three strips on mine and it works great for plants.
