This what they say about plant growth
The new Accent or Hidden LED systems - which addition would be best to promote plant growth?
A year ago I purchased your 37 gallon aquarium with the standard LED lighting, and have been very pleased with the setup. Java Moss & Fern, Annubius, some Crypts and Valisneria grow fine in the tank, but slowly. I am very interested to see the new hidden LED and LED accent systems. I would like to add one of them to my tank to boost plant growth - can you tell me which would be the better option? I have read the technical specs, but don't know how to tell.

Answer this Question
One point of clarification. If you are adding either the Hidden or Accent lighting systems to an aquarium with exisiting lighting they will do a great job of promoting growth and showcasing the live plants. The Accent line was specifically designed to help "bump" up the blue or red light in an aquarium to help with live plant growth and coloration. I say give the red Accent light a try. It really makes plants grow fast and look lush.

We actually wouldn't recommend either of those lights for live plants. Of our current offerings you can use either the Double Bright or Reef Capable LED's for low light plants.
We also have an Aquatic Plant LED which will be in stores in the May/June timeframe. This is our offering for live plants. I will send to the charts for both lights so you can make sure that you choose the right light for your needs.
