    LOL, I bought two of the same fixture as in your link from a fellow hobbyist were I live and I would not recommend them for a planted tank. I only use mine on my QT tanks when they are set-up for new fish. What I do not like about that fixture are the lenses (assuming are actually are any lenses) are far too wide of angle resulting in too much loss of light. With LEDs you need the correct combination of: color spectrum, voltage, and lenses. If any one of those factors is not correct, you will most likely be disappointed with the fixture.

    However, if you are no planning anything other than low light and low demanding plants, then the fixture should work very well.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    OK, thanks for that info. I do need moderately high light for my plants, so I'll pass on that. Cost is a big issue, though. (Ain't it always?) Need to get the biggest bang for the buck.

    All this talk about LEDs is good. Here is a link to a place I get all my outside lights from. Great prices and Commercial Quality. They have Small LED Fixtures that should work for Aquarium plus other types of fixtures. Poke around in the site. Nice LED Track Lights for bigger set ups at a good price.
