These are not a practical choice for a planted aquarium. They are no where near as strong as what would be needed. I mention their ideal use in the video and also mention they would not be useful on a planted tank or reef tank.
Each LED is not even 1 watt. they are closer to 0.10 watts.
A planted tank needs around 30 watts per square foot of tank.
EXAMPLE: So for an 4 foot long 55 gallon planted aquarium (4 square feet) we need 120 watts of LED lighing power.
Even if we buy the 60 LED/meter light strip, that would only be around 8 watts of power.
MEANING you will need to buy 15 of these strips to MAYBE match what a good LED light fixture can do. (15 strips = $345)
You are better off buying a proper planted tank LED light or building the more powerful LED system i have shown in a previous video.
