I just purchased a 30 inch Aqueon LED fixture and 2 extra colormax for my 37 gallon. It has mostly low light plants. I'm looking to see how well this setup will penetrate the tall tank.
I currently have a single T8 plant spectrum and most plants look ok, but it's been only half a week. I'm hoping it will work, as I am planning on testing it for a few months to see how well. I will move this 24 inch T8 over to my 46 gal to give it some extra lighting for the low light plants in there.
I figure I'll be able to compare the 36 + 24 plant spec T8 46 gal versus the 1 white + 2 colormax Aqueon setup and see if I want to go that route with the 46 or get something stronger.
Ideally I only want them both to be heavily planted low light plants tank. I currently use LeafZone and Flourish, but am considering Flourish Excel as well. I do not want to go to high light/CO2.
