Please note that the number of watts doesn't determine your light level.
It's based on PAR - typically more the lesser the distance between substrate and fixture.
Here's a thread that should help you greatly: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=184368

Big fan of Finnex LED
I use them in combo with T5ho on some tanks in combo with-power compacts
Best look from my point of view

Would it help if I supplemented it with this LED light bar or is it the wrong type of light?

You can also float stem plants like Anacharis (Waterweed), and Pennywort. Both will grow well close to the light source.

Is my lighting low/med/high?
I have two F15T8 / max plant growth zoo med flora sun's 18", on a marineland 46 gal bow front. I have been guessing it is low to med so I am looking for plants according to that.
Thanks for the help.
