Phinnex planted +2 (Cheap floodlight setup)

The white lights are 5000k and 30 Watts each, the grow lights are 24 Watts each and are just red a blue lights. Any opinions on the grow lights? Are they too strong? Click image for larger version

Looks a bit much. What size tank is that? I wouldn't be crazy about the look either in the pic with all four on. Maybe try using one close to center as in flood-grow-flood and see how it looks.

Itís a 65 gallon so it would cost a lot to get a setup for the 24Ē depth. I knew the grow light wouldnt look good, thatís why I put it on a separate switch. So Iím not too worried about the looks
