Led Lights? Urgent Help!!!

Hey you all, would these lights be an upgrade from my current fixture? My lights are a t5ho fixture with all 4 ati bulbs. My tank is a 40 breeder by the way. I'm looking to purchase now since they are cheap, but only if they are worth it. Attached are photos and a description!!! [221489[/ATTACH]Click image for larger version

ID:	221493I have for sale, two LED light strips that I was using on my fish tank. These bars have 24 1w LEDs each, 12 5k and 12 453 royal blue each with 60 degree lenses. They use quick disconnect power supplies, and have a glass splash shield.

Honestly probably not. They only use 1 watt leds and the nem would likely suffer. Also 5k is a gross yellow look

I was just confused because one of the store I visit has nearly an identical fixture, but I'm sure his our much more advanced. He grows everything with ease!

Yeah I know some fixtures look almost identical but some are crap while others grow everything lol. Maybe ask that store what the exact light they are using is.

48 1W LED over a 40B is quite a bit. Still probably not enough for a nem, though.
