I would think you would need 3 to 4 20watt lights 10's won't supply enough light

I just ordered two of the 10w floodlights for my 20H planted tank. Worth a shot. I may only need one but in case it's not enough I got a second.

I just got them in (2x10w LED daylight floodlights) and installed them both over my 20 gallon planted tank. They're dim looking, at least to my eyes. I won't be able to say if they actually grow my plants for a while but they'll definitely get their chance to prove themselves. Here's hoping.

Thats why I told rob_ stl that he should get 20's and not the 10's because I didn't think they would supply enough light

I can always use one on my 5.5 gallon quarantine tank and get a 20w to replace one on the 20 gallon. I totally agree with you on using a 20w instead of the 10w for plants. That was good advice. I'll follow it and order the 20w tonight. Thanks tonedogz.

I have 7 50s set up but it just doesn't seem bright enough.

the spectrum seems too blue to me.

There's a pic of my foxface sleeping. He was motionless and blotchy, he's a bit of a creeper at night.

I'm going to order 100's, 7-10 of them. I don't think the 50s are bright enough
