20 gallon long/led lighting question


So If I had a 20 gallon long tank, just planted with crypts, with Floramax substrate, do you think I could pull off using a marineland 24-36 inch single bright led?

good question as I am about to buy a light for my 20L. I have decided on a FugeRay from Finnex

A Marineland Single Bright fixture will likely not support what you're going for. A Double Bright would but would give you low light with no room for upgrades.

The Fugeray fixture would potentially be overkill for low light.
