Anyone used the vivagrow light?

I want to Change my 20 high to a long and dirt it. I want some low-medium light plants and the most demanding would be dwarf sag, s repens, alternanthera reineckii, rotala H’ra and maybe a few other plants that don’t need co2. I don’t know what light I want though. I was looking at the finnex stingray 2, beamswork, and now vivagrow. Anyone have experience with the vivagrow or beamswork? I know the stingray is a good light but I haven’t seen too many reviews for the vivagrow and the beamswork.

vivagrows are weaker knockoffs o the Finnex 24/7.
Beamsworks are just lights w/ decent PAR. Sort of comes in 2 "colors" warm white tone at 6500k and a punchier
higher K tone.

Seems they really beefed up the Stingray line..

Ok. The beamswork has some high par. Do you think it can grow the plants I want?

I had a Vivagrow 24/7 on my 20Long for quite a while and it it was fine. Shallow tank though. Price was right ! I switched back to a Finnex Ray2 and haven't really noticed any difference in growth.

Ok so should I buy one? After seen those par values for the beamswork and hearing about the vivagrow I think I’m gonna choose between these two bc of the price. Do you think it could grow dwarf sag, s repens, alternanthera reineckii, and rotala H’ra in a dirted tank with no co2 and a basic fert like easy green or a dry fert mix?
