    10g high tech high light suggestions

    Iím currently using a finnex 24/7 on max setting. Plant growth are slow. I added a coralife t5 which makes a night n day difference.
    Dhg runners are everywhere.

    Iím looking for a high light led or blub to replace the 2 lights, so I can use the 2 old lights on my other tanks.any suggestions?
    Did some research and found that fulval 3.0 and chihiro A are the way to go. Fulval is not an option for me, because of the 45cm tank width.

    Suggestions please before I hit the buy it now button on the chihiro. Thanks

    Pawfly uses a different diode chip and I would assume and run at a lower wattage. They are still good fixtures, china so hit or miss sometimes. I would double up and add line dimmers. Or go chihiros with line dimmer. You could also double up on Nicrew or Beamsworks. Whats wrong with your current set up? Sounds like it's working well. On one of my 40's I use a 2 bulb T5HO and a finnex.

    My current setup with one finnex 24/7 and corallife 2 t5 bulb works fine.
    I m just setting up a shrimp tank and thinking to put my finnex on it.
    Also One light fixture on a tank looks better than 2. it’s just a 10g

    So, one chihiro a series beats 2 nicrew?

    What do you mean 1 and 2? Also apparently the par is around 80-130 in a 10 gallon

    One Pawfly fixture vs. two fixtures.
