I use the 10w ones on my tanks, check out my journal. For something that big and deep you will probably want some fill light too like a triple line 5050smd led tape light because the spot lights do have a more focused area of illumination. If you do get the tape light too I would try running with 4, if not you will probably need 5-6.

Also yes they do grow plants.


No ferts or co2, surface is about 85-90% covered in frogbit which I have to remove weekly. 2-10w on a 20g long, please excuse the ugly pvc filter intake
