Anyone have experiences with these lights? I want to turn my 20 high to a 20 long and make it a low/medium tech tank. I don’t know what to choose between the beamswork, vivagrow, and finnex stingray. Which would be the best? I know the stingray is a decent light but what about the 2 budget options? I also want to upgrade the light on my 29 gallon high tech with co2. What’s the difference between the planted plus hlc and the stingray 2? Also, is the vivagrow a similar light to the finnex ones? I’m asking for anyone who have used these lights to get accurate info.

Ok thanks! The hlc is the one I was gonna get but I’ve seen deft reviews for the more budget ones so I just wanna make sure I don’t spend money I didn’t need to. Fish keeping is EXPENSIVE!!! Nice tanks!
