    Despite the good quality of kessil lights, I think any of them would be overkill for a 10 gallon.

    Yes, they would be overkill... but that's just my opinion, it's really up to you if you want to use it or not...

    For higher light/co2 I use the chihiros series a... love it...tons of pearling, great growth. Seven dimmable settings. It's not a kessil, but it's pretty darn close, esp when you consider the price. You can get them on eBay for around $30.

    Another option for lower light plants is the finnex stingray...

    Is this the one your talking about? It'll work for high all plant needs?

    Yes... I use the a501 on a ten.
    Carpets dhg, ludwigia super red is truly super red, mayaca fluvalitis pearls like crazy, ludwigia inclination 'cuba' is stunning... (of course I have good fert routine and co2)

    Non co2/excel tanks I use the fifth setting and it works for fussier plants as well. Co2 tanks I have on 6th/7th depending on the tank.

    I'm planning on getting one of these for my next tank!!! I wouldn't recommend the multiple colour version, since it has less white leds, it would probably have less of a par reading (meaning no high light).

    Do you think that with non co2/excel tanks, it would grow blyxa and Brazilian micro swords? and other medium-high plants that way?
