Are LED lights good to use for plants?
I have a planted 55 gallon community tank and use two 24 inch light fixtures with T8 bulbs with a color temperature rating of 5,700K. I want to switch to a new lighting and I'm thinking of shoveling the money out for some LED light fixtures, but I'm not sure if the LED lights give off enough lights for what my plants require. Does anyone know the impact of LED lights on aquatic plants and if it's efficient enough for optimal growth?

Please help me!
P.S. Byron, if you have the time, I'm begging for your wisdom!
