LED lights don't mean low light, it is cheaply built LEDs or cheap LEDs that are what makes it lowlight. I can easily have high light with LEDs for pretty cheap for what it is.

There isn't enough information on this light. It is going to be cheap though, it is from Walmart lol. There is a reason why it is able to be sold cheap, they make it cheap. I would do mosses, ferns, and anubias at most.

Thanks! I will probably stick with mosses and ferns in this tank, maybe a piece of my pothos.

I have a 29 gallon tank at my mom's that needs a part for the filter before I can set it up. I was thinking of possibly doing a planted sorority tank in there - the hood will allow me to switch light bulbs as needed which is nice unlike the 5 gal set up.
