|VadimShevchuk||I think you will need some high lights with CO2. I wouldnt even try to grow HC without co2. Im not an expert with lighting or leds so i cant help you there.|

It seems like the more I research, the less I understand. Some people say HC is a low to medium light plant, while others say you need lots of light!? So I would rather not go the route of doing a bunch of mods to the lighting. Would rather keep it simple with the LED lights so I can keep evaporation to a minimum.
Will this be enough for growing HC (LED MR11's)?

What lighting for HC in a fluval edge?
I am looking into lighting for my Edge and wanted to know what you think for HC requirements and my edge setup. I think these are the 3 ways I may go:
1. 2 x MR11 LED lights + 10W Coralife Mini Bulb
2. 2 x MR16 LED lights (hack) + 10W Coralife Mini Bulb
3. Take the parts from a Catalina 8in 13W 2 BULB COMPACT LIGHTHOUSE HOOD and fit them into my hood somehow.
Which will be sufficient for growing HC?
Also what do you recommend for a nightlight (blue led setup).
