scubabob I just got my Planted+ 24/7 for my 20 gallon!

I guess I can say I can now be a member of this group! :-)

Thanks to Nlewis for the tips and info! :-)

Plantednoob7 Just added the stingray to my tank to go with my 24/7. I am very pleased how the light makes my fish look. Their colors look great.

There are 2 big things with this light I do not like.

1 is that the cord cannot be unplugged from the driver. Without the cord being able to be unplugged how is a person supposed to plug it inside of a cabinet if that's where the strip is. The 24/7 has this feature.

#2 is the fixture is very narrow. I wanted more light for the front of the tank since that's where my discus like to hang out. With the fixture being so narrow it is easily blocked by the hinge on my versa tops. Fixture is prob half as wide as the 24/7

Blackheart Glad to be joining the Finnex team! I just purchased my 24/7 48 inch for my 55 gallon for 110 dollars shipped. Not bad.

I would much rather purchase from amazon using my prime, but the fixture is 30 dollars cheaper on fosters & smith right now and I couldn't pass it up.

Have you made sure there aren't other causes for the algae? I feel there isn't a ton of light from the 24/7. Maybe for few hours light is pretty strong but other than that it doesn't seem high. I'm running co2 and dosing the seachem fert schedule.

Once I got rid of my algae from the new tank start-up my tank is doing well, although not running two of the 24/7.

Have you considered running one on 24/7 and the other on a timer with color of your choosing?

I just ordered a stingray just for supplimental light to help my fish colors pop more.

I was considering the monster ray but since I just ordered another discus the same price as that light I decided to try the stingray.

Maybe I can get some help from the experts here:

What should I use for my 20 gallon tank? Dimensions are: 12.5 in deep x 24.1 in wide x 19.1 in high. I have a 2 inch substrate in there and don't plan to set up CO2 (yet!) :-)

Thank you for the inputs!
