    Check out nanotuners.com they have kits for JBJ aquariums. I would highly recommend the CREE LED's. On my 29 gallon Biocube I have 24 LED's and on day 4 everything looks great (including the acropora I added as a test).

    +1 on blackraven and Kelley. Watts per gallon was more for NO fluorescent bulbs.

    the real question you need to ask is what led system will work for your needs. and for us to recommend we need to know how big and what you are growing =)
