I bought the Beamworks 600 on Ebay for under$50 although it doesnt seem to be as good as my T5HO for my plants it doue look great and my fish are showing a lot more color

I think it has 120 LED's and is supposed to put out 10K

They do not give any PAR readings or lumens for their led fixtures unfortunately. They look cool, but I stay away when I do not really know how much light they give.

I would pass, on this

The thing is that your tank is 10"longer than the light and it is also very wide. So you are going to have to raise that 18watt light high enough to light the tank throuhout the mass of the water column. and doing this will probably give you very very low light. You didnt specify if you were going to dose with any type of co2 (liquid fert, diy ltr. bottle, paintball c02, etc)

So if you are going to go for a NPT with allot of medium light plants its a pass.

this is all IMO
