Ray II is for advanced users/w CO2 etc.
Planted+ will grow even some of the med light level plants and will have far less chance of algae issues.
If you are just starting this tank and don't have plenty of plants in it already nor intend to put lots of plants to start, use it @ 7.5 hrs till you get good growth going in there
with several plants before raising the hrs.

I use a ray2 and planted+ on my 37G. Keep in mind on the Ray2, the light portion is only 24"s, so you will have a 3 inch gap on each side without any light. (doesn't matter if you don't want to plant the sides.
Ray 2 or 2 ray 2's :D
Thanks guys now I know. :)

I had a Ray 2 on my 29g. I didn't care for it. Changed to the Planted + and now the tank is perfect. The Ray 2 didn't need CO2, but would probably be better if you did have. Two fixtures would be a little overkill, IMO.

I'm setting up ADA 60P and thinking of doing Finnex Planted Plus 24 inch. Light will be sitting about 14/13 inches above substrate.

I can't seem to figure our what the PAR may be at. Would anyone happen to have an idea?

I plan to hopefully plant HC and or hair grass while using CO2 system.
