40 watts of 0.06 watt leds is much different than 40 watts of 3 watt leds. I forget but how much were you looking into spending on lighting?

120w is too much for 20 gallons !!! I know numbers of diodes/watt will impact PAR, but 120w is really too much !! I can't run my 60w on MAX.

Then you'll run it less than 50% for sure... But if it's cheap, you can do it
