Did I buy the wrong light? (Ray 2)


Hey guys, I have recently bought the Finnex Ray 2 10000k + Actinics and I think I bought the incorrect light
I was attempting to use this for a high light + Co2 to grow HC and Pygmy Chain sword on my 20 gallon high, but I think I should have bought the Dual 7000k Model...

What should I do?
I can still return it, if need be.

You hit the spot. Dual 7,000k would put out more light than the 10,000k/actinics. The latter is more for medium light or saltwater.
