    I've been thinking of getting a lid for my 10 gallon tank and the aqueon hood is the only one that fits (aqueon 20" full deluxe hood) the only LEDs that are meant for plants that fit it are the colormax LEDs. So my question is of the colormax can actually grow plants? I have some ludwigia repens, anubias, and moss balls. Are the LEDs enough for them?

    Only high-output LED's are okay for planted aquariums; it should say on the package.

    It looks like they are high-output, they'll be all right for a planted tank. :)

    High output means it grows algae well.

    Whats the Kelvin rating for that light?
