Which Finnex is right for me?

So I have a Fluval Spec V I am setting up. Currently running but only has substrate (eco complete) and water in it. No plants or fish yet. I'm going to be upgrading the filter by building a media basket, and I want to upgrade the light as well. I don't plan on running a Co2 system but will be dosing and using root tabs.

I've been looking at the Finnex line of products, as internet reviews rate them highly for this tank. I am just confused as to which light to go with since I won't be running Co2. I'm looking at the Finnex Fugeray, Finnex Fugeray II, and Finnex Planted+. I am aslo confused as to which length to get. I'm open to other suggestions on lights. Thank you in advance for the help.

The 18" Current Satellite Freshwater LED+ would be better a choice since you don't want to run Co2. The LEDs are adjustable so you can lower the intensity. If you really want a Finnex, the Fugeray might work if you block some of the light with floaters or something else.

I have used both the fugeray and the ray 2. Both are great lights, but for a Spec V, I would go with the satellite light. You'll like having the capability to dim it for the setup you plan to run.
