Is viewing light just a different name for low light?
viewing would be no plants, fish viewing only, I'd say for your application the Dutch style 6700k would be a good choice.

Viewing light

Found the explanation on the Company side:
Viewing Light is for situations where the customer does not intend to use CO2 and wants an aquarium where they will be able to observe fish and easily grow lower light plants such as java fern, mosses and Anubias -- all of these should thrive under this light level if they receive proper fertilization.

yep. I planted already dwarf hair and java moss. Java fern will be next.
Are there any high growing plants (for the Angel fish) that doesn't need much light either?
Same question for floating plants. Would like some to keep darker corners for the cory where they like to rest during the day and also for the silver hatchetfish if I get them which I probably will.

Need to find plants that require the same low to medium light needs.

Zoo Med

How about this one here?
Zoo Med AquaSun LED HO Aquarium Fixture
seen it at big al's.
It has a plant mode so I am assuming that it is fine for my plants.
I most definitely like the price.
The beautiful* build my LED Dutch fixture* would be including shipping around $350. That's for my wallet just way to much.

the dwarf hair grass is going to require med/high light to thrive. That aqua sun is a t5ho correct?

Yes! The t5 ho should work, the only issue I'm seeing, keep in mind I'm a plant noob too.. The ultra low light java's and the high light dhg, are you planning on dosing ferts at all?
