The Light i have is 20 watt with 750 light output, is that sufficient for a 20 gallon long ?
Whilst wandering around walmart today i see 20 watt with 1175, 1250 & 1750 light outputs, wouldnt a brighteer light bee better ?
It depends on what type of tank you plan on keeping. If you plan on keeping live plants you may want a higher output bulb. If fish and fake plants then the bulb you have is fine.
