I hope someone here can help me out!! I am wondering if anyone has had experience with the two following lights, and maybe what the differences are if they know? I plan to use them for my 18"/17" tall 40-45gal (not 100% sure about gal because I am not the one who bought it) low-med light low tech tank. I would love if someone is willing to help me at least guestimate the par! It would really help!!

#2 was said to offer fine growth with someones's 40gal low-med planted tank. However, I would much rather go with #1 if the output is the same since they offer it in 36". I also think #2 was just mentioned a few posts ago but for a much bigger tank.
Please let me know if more info is needed! I'll gladly add it! Thanks! It would really solve my lighting problems.
