    LED's appear to be becoming more mainstream and prices are dropping. At the moment I am using 2 x 15w T8's over my 60cm tank (54L).

    The Arcadia Eco Aqua Daylight LED has a single 14w 'tube' option - compared to the T8's I have now, would I still likely need to consider two of these or would a single LED unit offer sufficient lighting? I'm looking to carpet the substrate with eleocharis mini with most other plants being crypts and ferns, and I will be using pressurised CO2 and EI.
