Hey guys I'm trying to decide what to do with my lighting situation. 125g, low tech planted. Currently have 2 30" Planted Plus 24/7s on the back and a 48" Planted Plus in the middle.

I had the 24/7s on the continuous cycle but had a lot of algae issues, so last week I moved them along with the regular Planted+ to a 10 hour timer.

I'm wondering now if I should ditch the 2 30" 24/7s, and get 2 36" Beamswork LED lights to cover the entire 72"? I think they'd give a little more power than the 30s, but can't find any info on them.

Just not getting the growth id like compared to my old 55g.

Less than thrilled with beamworks. They use plastic instead of an aluminum heatsink even. Least my 48" does.
Also PAR is 30 I think and I'd bet those finex easily outpower and definantly out quality a beamworks.

I did a rather terrible review job in the lighting section on 3 low cost LED lights all recently purchased.
Might be worth looking at.
Likely the finnex is superior to even the winner though lol.
