Aqueon Strip light

I'm just starting out, purchased a Aqueon 54 gallon corner tank (24' deep) and it came with an Aqueon LED strip light that had one daylight strip and an expansion slot which I added Aqueon Beauty max bulb (daylight and reds). Tank has been up and running about a month and is fully cycled. I have not been able to find what the light output is on these but I sense it is not enough light for even a low light tank, especially with the 24" depth of this tank. Plants are doing ok at best but are not growing. Been fertilizing the water column and added Florish tabs.
Is any one familiar with these strip lights? I know kits generally don't come with the best. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I just saw your post. I know it's 8 months old but I came to this site specifically to ask about these lights. I have an Aqueon hood with the LED strip lights also. Like yours, mine also came with 1 Day light strip and a spot for another strip. My tank has been set up with this hood for over a year. It's a low tech, low light tank and I don't have a problem growing plants. That being said it's a 20 gallon long so mine is only 1/2 as deep as yours. I came here to ask if anyone had purchased a second strip and how they liked it or if they could recommend which strip to add for my second light. I know I don't want the Blue Max one, but I'm not sure if I should just go with another Day light one, or the Beauty Max or the Color Max. I couldn't find any information about them as far as colors, how they look in the tank, and which would be best for plants.

Do you like the one you purchased? Did your plants start growing? Did you change it out for a different one? I'm wondering if having a second Day light one instead of the Beauty Max one would be more light for your plants?

Anyway, any information or suggestions you have about these light strips would be greatly appreciated.
