Hello,
I'm looking to get a second light or DIY light for my 20 gallon long. I currently have a Current Satellite LED+ on it but it doesn't cover the front to back like i would like. I have seen someone on youtube use 2 LED spotlights for their 20 long and like the look but i would also like to just get another light bar to cover the back. I'd like to stay around $50 or under for another lighting solution. Can anyone recommend a light source to add to my tank?

Thanks for the recommendation! I forgot I had about 4 feet of weatherproof LED strip from a past vehicle project so I actually made my own light out of it. I soldered 4 29.5in strips to a piece of aluminum then connected it to a power source. It lights up the back of my tank very well, now allowing my Satellite+ to stay at the front of the tank.

Excess the overgrown plants, haven't cut them back yet.
