    Unhappy BeamsWork Power 400 V2 LED for new setup of 29g planted aquarium?

    0 Not allowed!
    Hi all,

    New guy here. Great forum. I (perhaps foolishly) jumped the gun and purchased this light for my first tank in 16 years. This time I will trying my hand at plants as well as fish. I will stick with the easy stuff. I have tried searching forum but so far have not found any info on the version 2 of this light.

    The tank setup so far consists of:

    29gallon glass tank with flat glass canopy
    Eheim 2213
    Hydor ETH 200
    3 bags of Eco Complete

    The tank is not located where it will be touched by direct sunlight.

    Here are the specs on the light:

    BeamsWork Power 400 V2
    24 - 30" Aquarium LED Light
    Version 2 - 65% brighter than the original version.
    Dimension: 23" X 5" X 1"
    78x HQ 0.1W LED (72x 10000K daylight, 6x 460nm Actinic)
    810 Lumen
    Super slim housing in black finish.
    Full Splash guard
    2 mode ON / OFF power switch: "I" mode - ACTINIC LED on only. " II " mode - All daylight and actinic LED on.
    Extend-able bracket . 30" max lenght.
    AC110-240V AC adapter.
    CE certified.

    Will this light work for me or am I asking for an algae bloom? If need be I can bite the bullet and get a FugeRay or whatever else is recommended.

    Thanks in advance. If there is anything else I am missing in my setup I am all ears.

    It's not the best for FW, but due to the low wattage, It might be worth a try.

    If you keep your nitrates and phosphates low, you may not have a problem with algae at all.

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Welcome to the forum, you'll get low light with that fixture but not the optimum spectrum. 6500K is what you should be aiming for as you would get great growth with that spectrum as you have a dirted substrate.

    Thanks. Low light does seem like the place I would like to start as I would like to keep this low tech if at all possible.

    Had I done my research I would see that the Fugeray is only $84 shipped vs the $40 I spent on the Beamswork. Thanks for the info, I have a bit more to go on now.
