As mentioned in a previous thread I have a 100 gallon tank measuring 42"x24"x24" well I finally decided I am going to do about 6 T5HO bulbs that are 24" across the top.


I have always been curious as to LED's and I just stumbled across these 24 inch LED producing close to 10k LUX if I did 3 of those, would that be sufficient lighting?

Here is a link they also have a 48inch producing 16k lux.

I doubt that the LED light would work out very well. It appears to use the tiny, inefficient LEDs that so many LED lights use.

If you use 3 rows of T5HO lights, 24 inches long, with some overlap in the middle, I think you will get medium light. That is plenty of light.
