Amazon have bunches of 36" LED lights, that are linkable and 6500or6700K.

they work really well on a planted aquarium, and great if you can use.

I've got my eyes on two lights. Both of them are full spectrum meant for planted tanks with 6500k.

First is this NICREW. The cheaper of the two options but still seems to be a quality choice and has a few green lights along with the usual red/white/blue (not sure if that really means much but it's there I guess). Downsides are that it doesn't have as much adjustable options, you can only switch between all lights and only blue lights and it only has one type of clip to attach to the tank (mine is glass-topped).


Then there's this Hygger brand. It has more flexibility both with two types of support clamps and multiple lighting options plus even has a dim/brightness feature. Downside is it's definitely more expensive, just barely under $100 with two 36" that would span the length of the tank.


What do you guys think?

the Hygger will give you more light, so more options.

of the two I would go with that.
