I am in process of building a 180 gal. planted tank and was wondering what everyone thought of running 3 Beamswork LED 1W 6500K on a 180? I want to try and get some carpeting plants going in the foreground and not sure what all i will put in the rest. I am going with dirt and eco-complete for substrate and i have a FX6 for filtration. Still looking at what i should do as far as CO2.

thanks
The Pent's are better par wise. 3x Would be perfect for a 180 gallon in my mind. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KYELCL...olid=1BDG13ZW993N6&coliid=I1GDJ77RYJEASJ&th=1

Check the info @jeffkroll posted here. http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/10-lighting/1148394-beamswork-40-gallon.html

The DA Fspec would even be better but no par data for that one but am sure would even be better than pent. Do not have the 48" for vspec yet but couple weeks out is my guess.

I have a pair of those 72" on my 125g. They are doing really well for both pants and algae ;)


Lol. Algae's best friend.

these are the ones I am looking at:
amazon:
6500K 1w Beamswork
Lumen: 9500 on each
Plants could care less about Lumen's. May blind you with three at 9500? :surprise:
Would get better par with these Beamswork DA FSPEC LED 72" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LFF07E...olid=1BDG13ZW993N6&coliid=I1JAOVBPW48GR7&th=1

Get Red's with this one but not with the 1W. I will be getting the Beamswork DA FSPEC LED 48" as a second light for my deep tank.
