    Im looking for a medium light for my 29 that's relatively cheap. I have a Stingray on my 10 gal but idk if it would work on a 29 as well.

    In my experience, a standard stingray on a 20 long is high light(same height as a 10). I run co2 with it even. However, doubling the height on my 29 really cuts the strength back. I’m not even sure I’d call it medium on a 29. I have an additional light on my 29 alongside the stingray.

    If you want a good light for a tall tank, I’m not sure you’ll really find many cheap options.

    Usually the WITH water, the PAR reading ends up and averages from 16-18” from light to substrate about 65-70, (tops/max)with a strong light, thus can be determined to be “medium” to almost high light.
