Ok maybe I'm missing something here (wouldn't be the first time LOL!) but that 3w led unit seems like a dumptruck load of light for a planted tank of any normal depth. This other thread talking about 20, 30 and even 40w led outdoor spot lamps...I don't get it...Seems to me that unless you have pretty awesome luck you're just asking for an algae machine.

Someone care to give me the Reader's Digest version of why this much light is desirable?

Thanks!
