Is this kinda light good enough?


Will a light with like 24" T5 Dual 48W - 6700K, good enough for my tank? is a regular 20 gallon, running DIY co2, and have like java moss, java fern, swords, anachris, and gonna add more plants. But will it be a good light? 2x T5 24W 6700K bulb, both white.

Thanks, Chao

48 watts of light over a 20 gallon is good enough for a tank with those kinds of plants.

Probably not enough light except for the most low light tolerant plants.
