|Wayne Dwops||This is what came with my 10g kit. It is the bare minimum to keep low light plants alive, but I get verrrry little growth.|

I have the same Marineland single bright in the picture.
I have it over a lightly planted 10 gallon. I'd say it's enough just to keep plants alive. Very little growth.

LEDs work great, but that is a really low powered LED light. On a tank as tall as a 12g Edge, it probably won't help much.
A 16" Finnex Ray II DS would probably get you into high light or a Finnex Fugeray or Marineland Doublebright would probably give you low/medium light

^ 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.

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 also have a fluval cfl but I think its two small for that size tank and might buy another one.
