Yes, I love mine. Grows plants very well, with the addition of Co2.

They're great lights. On a 20 long you may have algae issues if you do not plan on a fert regime and carbon source. What are your planted goals?

I would suggest the finnex 24/7. it's dimmable, has a remote, and is pretty powerful.

I set mine at 20% whites to start, and over the course of a month and am at 60% whites now. You could start at 40% or 50% whites and go from there

The 24 7 mode proves a bit much for low tech setups. Temporary observations

Has anyone tried suspending the fixture above a shallow tank? I'm considering getting a 20" or 24" for my new tank. (ADA 60F 24x12x7)

There are no mounts to hang the light from, you would have to drill the plastic legs to hang it
