It doesn’t come with a remote control like the other units. Lighting can’t be dimmed to suit low-tech planted aquariums. This means users should be prepared to be using both fertilizers and CO2. Otherwise you may see a spike in algae. It is a good light for a reasonable price. It is slightly older than the Finnex + 24/7 but has gained mass popularity with the planted tank community.

These are not a practical choice for a planted aquarium. They are no where near as strong as what would be needed. I mention their ideal use in the video and also mention they would not be useful on a planted tank or reef tank.

Each LED is not even 1 watt. they are closer to 0.10 watts.

A planted tank needs around 30 watts per square foot of tank.

EXAMPLE: So for an 4 foot long 55 gallon planted aquarium (4 square feet) we need 120 watts of LED lighing power.

Even if we buy the 60 LED/meter light strip, that would only be around 8 watts of power.

MEANING you will need to buy 15 of these strips to MAYBE match what a good LED light fixture can do. (15 strips = $345)

You are better off buying a proper planted tank LED light or building the more powerful LED system i have shown in a previous video.
