I'm offended by the price of fish food. Fish meal and ground rice shouldn't cost this much. The best price I can find is at Petmountain. A 7oz can of Tetramin costs $9.29. That's over $21/lb! To put...

If you put the two 24" lights side-by-side and pointed them at the same spot, then you may well get ~74. If you put one on the left and one on the right, I'd expect something closer to 37 throughout...

I think it is fine for low light. They recommended 2 white and one colormax but I have a deep tank and a little more lighting needs. The colormax are, according to the rep, 2/3 white and 1/3 red LEDs...

I'm amazed no one is answering your question. I'm shopping LED lights too and I've done a ton of reading so I'll see if I can get things started. I'll assume your tank is 21" tall.

I called Finnex and they recommended the Ray2 dual 7k since my tank is a bit taller. Too bad because they are out of 36" Ray2's.
