Led light

Started a 5 gallon Marineland protrait tank and tried a few plants. All withered away with the stock light. Can someone recommend a replacement led light that can be mounted like the original? And of course it has to look good since the tank is in the livingroom .

Are you seeking low light/low maintenance or something on the higher light side?

You could look into some of Finnex's clip on lights, such as the Stingray or Planted+ depending what your needs/goals are.

Low light. I do have a sandbed but don't think I want to deal with co2.

A Finnex Stingray would be a solid choice then.

Are you sure it was the light?

I keep thinking with a few tanks now the issue was light, and it turned out to be co2. Adding excel everything got really happy with lights everyone says wouldn't grow a thing.
