So my T5 HO output is giving out on me now and I'm trying to find a cheaper and more effective light system. I have a 30" long 29 gal heavily planted tank and had about 3~ watts per gallon per say. So I found this app that sells cool aquarium stuff for cheap and I found a SMD LED 11W 50cm lamp with 60 white and 12 blue bulbs, voltage of AC100-240V. I'm not too savvy on how lighting works but if someone could just tell me if this would be appropriate for what I have or if I should keep looking the fixture is $37 which isn't too bad.
