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

    Not sure I said so. That refers to what angle is supported. I'll go by what u said earlier. This 60w seems a good deal right?

    If you look at the information in the link you posted, it clearly states the LEDs you are looking at buying have 140 degree angle lenses. 60 watts of LEDs with 140 degree lenses would provide a lot less light to down to the bottom of your tank when with lower degree lenses.

    If you are OK with that, and it fits your budget, then it could be good deal.



    I would still recommend the same below features

    - A 48 inch long fixture that is also about 6 to 8 inches wide (or wider)
    - Around 30 to 40 1 watt LEDs, either Cree or Apollo. A few more if you think you want more demanding plants in the future
    - Color temp of less than 7000K
    - a mixture of about 50% of the lenses around 40 to 60 degrees, the rest around 60 to 100 degress
    - add a few red f you want to help the colors in your tank "pop"
    - add a controller to adjust the intensity of the light if you want
    I can't really add much more information or help for you to make your decision.

    At the end of the day, you are the one that needs to be happy with any purchase that you make

    Thanks for noting it!!!!

    Asking supplier to do this:

    8 x white cree @ 6500k - 50 degrees
    8 x white cree @ 6500k - 80 degrees
    4 x red @ 630nm - 60 degrees

    That should do the trick right?
