pc lighting

so i was on craigslist and saw a 29 gallon rectangle tank, stand and he said he would throw in his pc lighting with it for really cheap. Are PC lights any good for a tank this size. as of now i have a 10 gallon nano with a fluorescent 20,000k, i have a few button polyps zooanthids that look lik ebutton polyps, mushrooms, nothin too big, the pc light is an odyssea brand that is all i know. any suggestions or information on pc lights over others in your experience would be greatly appreciated, thanks for your time

I had a 29 that had PC lighting. It was a seahorse tank for a while and then I used it as a FOWLR tank. It worked fine.

Odyssea is a cheap generic knockoff. Many people had problems with them dying after a short time. So make sure the light actually works & you get it CHEAP.
