Would this suffice? I like the idea of having wireless controls. The tank is 25 inches high. Have some moss on driftwood with some other random assortment of plants. Probably beginners plants

What is the .6 Watts per gallons for that tall a plant for low light plants you want almost 1watt per gallon to be able to grow plants in that depth. I had to get the finnex planted + so I could have good plant growth in my 65, same height as your tank.
Edit: just saw that the box showed the wattage, that should be enough to grow low light and low demand plants

Everything I ever read on LED lights only considered the par of the light and not wattage

I have a 24” tall tank, I purchased a beamswork/green element evo light with 3W leds, but I have a heavy plant load and a couple require more of a medium light, can assist you better if we know exactly what plants you have. The stock light that came with my tank allowed my water sprite to grow but my bacopa was dying, I had to upgrade.

Yes it would because of the way it attaches to the tank. And I enjoy the light has a 24 hour mode and I’m able to grow jungle val, amazon swords and anubias when it’s shaded.
