I ended up using a bag and a half because I wanted it slightly thicker in the back. 1 bag would work just fine though.

I run both, but I'm an idiot. The planted plus runs 11hrs with the fugeray on 5 of those 11 hours. Fantastic plant growth but I have thread algae.

After looking closely, I can see an intensity difference. I'm not trying to go high tech but don't like the stock light either. Will you be dosing co2? Can you take a pic of how you mounted the light?

Whatever happened with this light? Did it work? I'm probably gonna go with the 42 led replacement and call it a day if not.

Cannot grow java moss to save my life. No, I am not kidding. Always slowly turns brown and algae infested and dies. Everything else is growing perfectly while this happens.
