    I am setting up a 20 gallon long planted tank. Dwarf baby tears and red flame swords are the plants I plan to get. I am having a hard time finding a bright enough light that will fit on the tank. Any ideas on what light I should get?

    20g is the tank capacity what are the actual size. LED lighting is possibly the best but they are certainly not cheap.

    It should not be difficult to get a LED light for that standard size tank.

    It looks like a very nice LED light unit.
