Lighting for my 20 gallon long


Hey I have a 20 gallon long and I have two, ten watt led flood lights and a 20 watt led flood light. I was wondering if this would be good enough for a decent lighting. Also I was considering picking up another 20 watt led for the tank. Will that be to to much?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
I will post some picks later today.

Hard to say without knowing some other factors. Do you have co2? Do you have soil/whats your substrate? How long is your lighting period a day

I am using black flourite with sand and I do have a DIY Co2. I run my lights about 10hours a day. I do dose flourish excel every other day and flourish once a week.
