    Hello all, as the title says, I am new to the world of the planted tank. I have kept a 125 gal. reef tank since 1986. My new planted tank is 36" L x 18" W x 20" H. I have been looking into LED lighting for this tank and I really like the Twinstar SA series LED lighting and the ADA Aquasky LED lights. However, I can't figure out which model of these lights will work with my 36" long tank. Can anyone help me

    What level of PAR do you need @ the substrate?
    PAR data should be available or measured by someone on the web.
    What plants are you interested in growing? Is CO2 going to be used?

    FWIW I would always suggest a dimmable light to keep options open.

    Maybe others here know the lights that you have mentioned.
