I want to start a 55 gallon low tech tank and the LED's have intrigued me. The Marineland 48-60 Double bright fixture looks like it would get lighting I need but I'm. Just looking for some confirmation. From all I've been able to find it should put me right around a PAR of 30 if the lights about 22 inches from the substrate. One concern I have is the coverage at the bottom. I hear these fixtures can be a bit too focused on what is directly below it. Anyone have any experience with this particular light? Thanks!

Information I found in the LED lighting compendium sticky indicated that it would be about 35 par at 24 inches. I just wanted some opinions from those who might have used this same unit. I was hoping 13 wide wouldn't be a big deal for the lens issue on this light.

Yes it will cover 13" wide very well.
