    Hello all,

    Iam pretty new to aquariumplants and in the proces of gathering all materials for my first planted 216L/55G tank (80x45x60cm).

    As a light iam not pretty sure what to buy.
    What I like is the shadow that HQI and Leds are casting on the ground and plants, it just makes it more alive for me.

    Currently iam looking at the Maxspect Razor r420r, 160 watt, 8000 Kelvin.
    It is not a cheap light if you compare it to t5, iam going to use Co2 with a atomizer.

    link to product
    But I have never seen it in real life, on saltwater forums they are pretty content with the product, but I havent seen much of them in freshwater forums.
    Maybee because they are pretty new (3 months), so what do you think?

    Thank you,
    Lexy

    If you are looking to spend that much, you could put a lot of light over your tank if you look at the ah supply leds. Yeah, they might not be as pretty, but you'll have a significant savings over the $800+ to put two of those over your tank. Check out the forums here and you'll see a lot of people are very happy with ah supply and their products.

    That's my 2 cents.

    If you are handy and good with a soldering iron and electrical schematics, you can make a nice DIY LED setup for around $100 that will give you nice plant growth.
