LED Lighting Help!

I currently have an Aqueon 26 gallon Bow Front Tank. I am in the process of upgrading my hood to a glass hood and would like to upgrade to LED lighting. I do not plan on having any live plants. I have been doing research on LED lights and am both amazed and overwhelmed! I want a good quality set up! Any suggestions on what would be a good product to go with?

If you DO NOT plan on getting any live plants then any LED will work. You could even make your own out of some LED strips, or find a nice cheap one in the lighting section of your big box hardware store, Ebay, Amazon, etc.

If you DO or at some point MAY WANT plants then go with the Satellite or Finnex. These are made for aquariums with live plants, and will give you the proper PAR and wavelength of light for growth.
