Marineland double bright in 20g


I'm only looking to grow a few crypts and maybe some sunset hygro for a low light peaty bog, but will the double bright even cut it for crypts?

Definitely yes! I have two Marineland Double Brites on my 56 gallon column tank that is 24" tall and 18" front to back. My Crypts, Anubias, Java Fern and Jungle Vals are doing great! FWIW- I'm also using Flourite substrate and Seachem's Excel, Flourish Comprehensive and Trace.

I'm using aqueon modular and they work great and can be switched out, For the color max if you want a warmer spectrum. You can not do that with other fixtures. If the LEDs burn out, not likley but possible you will be screwed.
