    Some really strong chihiros LED's can reach 24inch deep easily, may need two+ of them. Also depends on the plants. This was my 110gal that is 24inch deep with two chihiros a1201 I think? They are dicontinued but they've made some newer ones that are RGBW+.. Are you using high quality T5's or just random ones? There is a big difference between like Geissman bulbs and random bulbs.
