Last week I put together a new LED lighting upgrade for my 8-gal Hex freshwater aquarium. The 8-watt screw in fluorescent wasn’t putting out enough light to grow plants. It might seem like 1-watt/gal would be enough, but the bulb is omnidirectional and the reflector was garbage, I probably only got 4-watts to the water….
