    That AquaEl tank/light combination could be from medium to high light, depending on how good the reflector(s) are, and how good the ballast is. I have never seen one, and there are no detail photos of the light in that website that I noticed, so I can't say any more about it.

    I had very good growth of Sagittaria with a PAR at the substrate of about 20-25. I think you probably have about 30 at the substrate, so you should do very well. It will help if you use Excel.

    Hello Hoppy,
    I am looking to carpet my 20 gallon tall with Sagittaria requiring medium light. With a lighting system with a PAR of approximatly 105 at 6inchs, 45 at 12 inches, and 22 at 18 inches. Would this meet that lighting requirement?

    I don't know anything about the LED lights sold there. One advantage of using Finnex LED lights is that they provide very good data on how much PAR each of their lights produces. See http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=189944 for example.

    Hi Hoppy,

    I have looked at your lighting info. Nice work. However, I have a few questions.

    Sorry to bother, but nobody elsewhere can answer my questions.

    Ok,

    What are your thoughts on this light?

    Thanks in advance,

    You probably have around 60 PAR, which is medium to high light. That is plenty for growing almost anything, and pressurized CO2 is essential for avoiding algae problems.
