I'm looking for a decent but affordable LED light that will help grow java moss nice and lush for my 20 long.

Get 2 clip on lamps and led bulbs from Walmart. It'll cost about 20 bucks and while it may not be the best light, my moms 20 long used this and the java moss lives up to the name aquarium herpes

Hello Elo...

Aquarium lighting is pretty pricey as are replacement bulbs. Low light plants don't need more than standard florescent lights and replacements are pretty cheap and still work just as well. I keep a lot of Xmas moss and just use a two bulb fixture from the hardware store. Florescent lighting is about half the price and the bulbs will last many months.

Pretty much anything will work for moss.

I like these Aquaneat lights for 20L but they do run hot.


These aren't as bright but runs cooler too.
