Greetings World......I'm Back!

After an extended absence I'm back into aquarium hobby.

My how things have changed and I need some lighting recommendations for a brand new 55 Gal.

What I used to have 10+ years ago was a 4x55 Watt Jebo with 2 10K and 2 9325 GE CF's.

What are the recommended lighting systems for the LED age that will effectively allow for proper plant growth like the GE Compact Fluorescents did?

I'm wanting to get this right from the get go with all the new tech that is out there.

Thanks in Advance

-TF

Welcome back!

There is so much available now in LEDs that it is hard to make a decision. You will get lots of suggestions. Try to find manufacturers that give PAR data on the fixtures they make. This will help you to compare apples to apples.

As an update,

I just bought a Finnex ALC series for the 55.
The PAR rates at 117 and the price was decent.
We'll see how it does!
