Actually it should be about the same if not more par because of more LED concentration. If you look at the specs of the planted+ and the fugeray the plus has more LEDs. Reds are great for growth, too.

With that much PAR you will definately have to add Co2 unless you want massive algae blooms. I recommend going Co2 anyway, it really increases the enjoyment of the hobby, IMO.

Explain.



Lumens do not matter in any way, shape, or form. Lumens are a unit of visible light emitted from a source with regards to their effect on the human eye, nothing to do with plants.

Ecoxotic freshwater would work for this. Have to make your own hanger for it though. Loved it over my 20 long.

IMO blue colors accent fish more than reds do, at least to my eyes. Ive tried both and red seems to diminish color. Too much blue washes everything out though.

Red spectrum is good for plants. It encourages flowering and low, bushy growth in most plants. Look up phytochrome photoreceptors.
