    need a new light advice please

    Need another light and I have made a short list of these
    Two of these
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/HIPARGERO-L...r=8-3-fkmrnull
    Or one of these
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/VIPARSPECTR...gateway&sr=8-6
    Got to admit I like the first but it is 100w less powerful , I only have a 27" tank so in the real world will it matter that much ?
    Unless you know of any other

    First one is a waste of time m8

    Second one or this one will be ok for you, but it's the mounting of them https://www.amazon.co.uk/Luxbird-12-...MXG8PDRQRZH0DB

    Start off low for a few days and bring them up a little every couple of days until you think its bright enough.
