Do you know of an led that supports low light plants?

My home is older and so is the electrical system. For lighting my sorrority an led would be much better because it draws less wattage. Can anyone make some recommendations?

Do mean two lights on the same tank or You've tried both individually and either works?

Oh just one on each tank. On my 10 gallon I use the 18 inch and the on my 33 I use both the 24 inch LED system and a 20 watt flora-lite bulb that doesn't light much.

Did you measure this? I would expect those level from a rayII but not from a fuge ray. from what I've heard fuge rays only give low-med light at best.
