    DefaultLED Light strips or sticks

    I am thinking of changing the lights on one of my smaller tanks from CFL bulbs to LED. Amazon has a huge selection of LED light strips or sticks that can be mounted on the hood with suction cups.
    I have some plants, mostly anubias, vals, wisteria and moss. What do I have to look for? I have no idea about lighting, always used what came with the tank.
    Any information is greatly appreciated.
    29 Gallon planted, low-tech:
    Male Betta
    Neon Tetras
    Glowlight Tetras
    Hengeli Rasbora
    Harlequin Rasboras
    Otocinclus
    Trumpet and Assassin Snails

    Pretty much any small led will do then.

    Can you tell me your tank size? because on Christmas promo codes, I saw many LED lights in different sizes according to our need, I don't know you search there or not, but I recommend you to go there and check because of its a season of Christmas, people eagerly looking deals on LED lights, go there before they sold out.

    I have 2 of those lights over a 18 inch high 16G . That is considered a very high light tank and needs co2 to keep it balanced . They are 1 lumen per watt. Some of my plants grow an inch per day and thats on a ramp timer with peak output from 11-3 ish
