    Whats the best bang for the buck LED Aquarium light strip?

    My 55 gallon tank dimensions are 48 x 13 x 20. I am concerned about the height.

    The best one I found was "Finnex Planted+ 24/7 Fully Automated LED" for $135.
    Its 7K, doesnt mention how many lumens though.

    I dont have plants. Just want programmable, RGB, and good daylight.

    Has anyone used this? Or know of a better bang for buck?

    I have the planted plus on that tank.works great. If you want one for a tank without plants get a finnex monster

    I dont really know whats out there for non planted tanks. The amount of light the finnex puts out would encourage algae if you dont have plants, as it will have no competition for nutrients.

    Here's my tank with one planted plus. But I agree about algae.

    Those look nice too, but dont think its programmable. I wish Finnex's web site showed more specs on their products. Their website looks like a mom and pops website.

    I like the Current USA satellite LED Plus Pro better, but its $290. Its not the bang for my buck. :;juggle
