I have a extra marineland led light (the same one as in pic). I have a fluval 12 edge tank with out the top glass on it. I do live plant in other tanks and they all have t-5 coralife 6700k day light bulbs and do fine. Short on cash and want to know what other people think of this light? I really do not believe in leds yet. Please help me out on this one. Here is the other tread that I have made to look at tank.
^ I got the tank, it does better with the top off (which I used to do), I notice that some LED fixtures would barely reach the bottom. My dwarf hair grass were struggling while taller plants did great.
Maybe go for a stronger light fixture made for taller tanks? I saw some Marine lights and they don't look very bright compare to the stock Fluval Edge 42 leds.
