Yeah, they are supposed to be the equivalent of 60W incandescents then. That's a lot of light even though I am not sure how it compares to aquarium bulbs since regular incandescents and CFLs are so rarely used in the hobby these days. LEDs are great because they provide beautiful light, consume little power, and don't have to be replaced for a long time. Just make sure you raise the fixture a little bit if the light is too intense. In a small tank, it's often not the light's output but the low distance to the tank that causes algae problems. Someone here on the board sells/sold beautiful acrylic raisers for Finnex lights, but you could easily cobble something together yourself.
