Help! Led Light or T5HO For 36 Gallon Bow Front Aquarium!
Hello, I right now am in search for a suitable led light for plant growth in my tank. I am sorry but I do not know much about lights. I have selected a few of the lights that might be suitable and please tell me which you think is the most cost efficient while sustaining plant growth. I am not maintaining a reef aquarium so I don't think blue led lights are needed (please correct me if I am wrong on this.) This tank is 36 gallon bowfront and the dimensions are 30"L x 15"W x 21"H.
If you think there is a light that would work just as well or better at a lower price, then please recommend it to me. Also T5HO bulbs will work too if you can find one that is cheap or good enough.
Here are some options I found :
Fluval Performance LED Strip Lights: Aquarium LED Lighting
Marineland Aquatic Plant LED Light System - 24 to 36 in.
AquaticLife 1W Expandable Marine LED Light Fixtures
Satellite Freshwater LED Strip Light - 24 in. - 30 in.
what is the difference between these two? ↑ ↓ ↑ ↓ ↑ ↓
Satellite Freshwater LED Plus Strip Light - 24 in. - 30 in.
These are also Satellite but cheaper for some reason
Amazon.com: Current USA Satellite Freshwater LED Light, 18"-24": Pet Supplies
Amazon.com: Current USA 24"-30" Satellite Freshwater LED Plus Aquarium Light w/Wireless RGB Remote: Pet Supplies
Marineland Double Bright LED Light - 24-36 in. | thatpetplace.com
Marineland Single Brite LED Light Fixture - 24 to 36 in.
I would appreciate any info you can give me.

What do you want to grow? Red plants? High light plants? Will you have co2? Whats your budget?
I think those are a few important questions, once they are settled, it will be easier to refer you to the right fixture
