20 gal tall/ 2 light options opinions please

Hi everyone,

I recently bought a 20 tall and was going to use it for saltwater. I currently run a 90 gallon reef w/ 20 gallon refuge and 90 gallon sump. I wanted to try my hand at a nano reef but I've decided I'd rather set up a planted tank. Before the reef I had a 45 gallon cube tank that was freshwater. I have some extra lights laying around that fit on the tank. The lights I have that I could use is either 4 x 13 watts PC or a 2 x 36 watt PC setup. I'm leaning towards the 4 x 13. Please give me your opinions. By the way I love the site, great work guys.

4x13 would work fine.

Jon, welcome to The Planted Tank.

Both would work fine, it really depends on the type of plants you want to grow. If you want to grow lower-medium light plants go with the 4x13 or medium-high light plants go with the 2x36.
