I have put the Stingray on one side of the tank, and the Aqua One on the other.
It has been less than a week, and the plants are already doing better on the Stingray side. The Hornwort is growing twice as fast, and the S. repens new leaves are sprouting in a more compact way. The old Aqua One light is still working, still bright, and the plants are OK, just not quite as OK, if you know what I mean.

Both lights are about 2.5 inches above the water, and shining through a glass lid with condensation on it.
I see, that's good to know! I might keep mine around just in case or maybe I'll try the updated Nicrew one. Have you had experience with those?
