I recently acquired a Beamswork DA FSPEC LED with RGB and 10,000k. I know my java fern and moss, my val and anubias will grow just fine, but I unwittingly bought some four leaf clover not knowing it is a high light plant. Will this LED do anything for my four leaf clover? It's a 20g high tank.

Yea, honestly most of that meant nothing to me. It drives me crazy when someone refers to a scientific chart of stuff I don't understand. I'd rather someone say "yea it will be fine" or "probably won't be great for it".

The DA Fspec gives around 100 par at 13 inches. If your substrate it around 1-2 inches you get like 80-90 at the substrate and that's pretty high light. The clover should do fine but I'll be surprised if you don't have any algae issues. The par values were for the 30" model so it could vary with your tank but overall you should be good.
