Has anyone got one of these light units and can you show me your low light planted setups with this unit?

Also love to here from any in Australia with this model.. How do you find replacement parts are they easy to come by?

Here is a link to my article on getting started with low light / low tech tanks, the photo at the top is my 40 gallon breeder with a Finnex Planted Plus....

As for replacement parts, what parts are you talking about? It is basically all one piece so not many parts. There are little screw on clips, but once you install the light you should have no issues. It's not like a filter impellor or air pump diaphragm that can wear out over time. Nothing really to replace. The LED's are supposed to last around 40,000 hours of use.

With LED's you don't replace the bulbs or ballast like standard fluorescent fixtures, that is part of the huge savings long term.

I think it's a bug the mods are aware of. Do you have access to a non-mobile device?

I have the planted plus 48" on my 55g and it does really well for me.

Bit of shade in the center as my banana plants have sent up shoots with lily pad like leaves and they seem to have gone to the center area.

And I don't know if I would consider this a low light setup. I have a lot of med/high and high light plants such as my Madagascar lace which is growing like a weed(not meant to be a pun)

Light requirements in some cases are subjective. Many plants will grow in a wide range of light. However, in higher light, they may grow faster, or develop the reddish orange color near the tips. Ludwigia Repens is a good example. It will grow in low, medium, or high light. The higher the light, the more red the tips will get and higher light will make more of the plant orange/red. In lower light it still grows fine, a hair slower, and doesn't get as red, mainly just the very tips. The planted plus will put most tanks in the high end of low light, to the low end of medium light. I don't use CO2 injection in my tank with the planted plus, just occasionally dose Excel to keep some available carbon in the water column.
