The par levels for the fuge ray and the rayII were released by the company. There is actually no 30" rayII only 24" with 74 par at substrate and 36" with 80 par at substrate if it's at 12H

You can also try looking at pet mountain they have the marineland led that adjusts 24-36 for 56.99

This might sound weird, but I had a 5 gallon tank and I used this super bright LED desk lamp that I bought at Target (it was about $32). It's 800 lumens, but it doesn't say the K number. I don't remember how many watts. But it kept my amazon sword and rosette sword growing at a slow but steady rate.
Edit: I just saw that it is a 20 long... so this probably won't work because you'd need like 4 of them.
