Christmas present!

My fiancé is looking to get me lights for my 10 gallon planted aquarium for Christmas. We would like to stay in the $50-$75 range but could maybe pull $100.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Anyone use Dustins LED lights? Are they any good?

Do you have a kind you like most?

What lighting level are you looking for? Low, medium, high?

Stingray is cheap enough and would give you low-medium light on a ten.
I am looking for medium to high. I have been dosing and doing excel so I think I'd be able to get away with it.

I decided to get a Finnex 24/7 planted+

I am pretty excited as I read good things about the light. Anyone with it, how do you like it?

Congrats, I think you will be happy. So far I like it a lot, especially since it can be customized. I was running it 7 hours a day on a custom color and I switched over to 24/7 mode from 6 AM to 10 PM (on a timer) so we can enjoy the tank for more of the day/night. Good luck!
