    What light would work for plants on a tank that’s 24 inches tall? It’s going to be a low tech lighted tank. Swords,Val,Crypts,anubias, and some Bacopa. Really don’t want to break the bank on something expensive if I don’t have to. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Best bet for something cheap would be LED floodlights with low optics.

    You really don't need high lights all your plants are easy care and low lights so full spectrum lighting (5000-7000K) be fine

    24" is deep but your plants don't need high lighting. Full spectrum lighting on a medium strength LED like the Finnex Planted+ should suffice.
