I have the 18-24 inch double led and found it very inadequate. It came with my 27 gallon cube tank. I was very disappointed. There is no way it would grow anything but low light plants and my fish looked like they were always swimming in the shadows.

I ended up getting an Aquatic Life T5HO twin tube light. I still use the led to light the back of the tank and to create the shimmering effect. Hope this helps.
