I would think as long as the reflector is decent you should be fine. I use 3 brooder lamps over a 20long but its low tech. The nice thing is you can easily change out (within rated wattage) the lamps for more or less light.

BeamsWork makes great and affordable led fixtures. I run 2 on my 40b and just ordered a 30" for my 20 long ($50!) to replace 3 cfl brooder lamps. Only replacing as my wife doesn't care for the look. The CFLs have been growing my anubias, a chain sword of some sort, dwarf hair grass, and Java moss...oh and frogbit lol. I'm using the .5watt models but there are also 1watt and 3watt.
