    Clip on LED for 14 gallon tank?

    Looking for recommendations for a clip on/ cheap LED that you can get from Amazon.com or something
    Just trying to keep things really simple for a small 14 gallon set up.
    Thanks!

    Watching;

    Not sure if I will upgrade the little one for my son' 6 gallon cube, but it has been a while since I have done my research, and I don't care for the easy his clip on works. Not even sure what brand it is, or how well it will actually grow plants.

    I have this one from Nicrew:

    https://www.amazon.com/NICREW-Aquari..._dp&th=1&psc=1

    on my 15 gallon tank. I put a second light on for better coverage, but the area that the clip on lights up is pretty good by itself. If you are not running CO2 it would probably be adequate.

    (Edit, make sure to buy the one listed "for plants," )

    thanks for the recommendation. i scoured around a bit and saw this brand before from Aquaneat... maybe the clip thing isn't going to work for me lol

    I like the Finnex Stingrays I've had.

    Good choice. I had one of these in the past and they work great.
