I’ve just bought a beautiful Aqua oak 95 gallon aquarium and it came with an led light, how can I tell by looking at it whether or not it will be strong enough for growing plants? It’s full spectrum but there’s nothing printed on it to tell me the strength of the lights, just has GAKO stamped into the casing so I’m guessing it’s a Chinese lamp.

Kind of depends upon what plants you have in mind and whether it is going to be a high-tech tank with high fert's and CO2 etc, or a low-tech tank with less demanding plants.

35w and rgbw diodes assuming 48" fixture.
Not really great for a 95gal tank

32w..spectrums fine w rgbw diodes

It’s not that one, it doesn’t have a remote control just an inline switch with off, just blue or full colour. Judging by the price of that one though I’m guessing this one is prob cheap too so not likely to be good enough

I’m not sure yet but since I use co2 and ferts on my current tank will likely go that way with this one too.
