I'm after abit more light for plants growth. Currently I'm running a fluval 2.o and a juwel led bar which gives me as a guesstimate of around 40-45 par substrate level. Does anyone have any experience with the cheapo eBay LEDs as a boost?

Anyting cheaper than Chihiros or Finnex is generally just LED suitable for “viewing fish”, and not designed for plant growth

If water column height is greater than 35-40cm, look for 1watt high intensity LEDs (which are now no longer “cheap as chips”)
If you look at some of DIY LED builds (on ukaps) there are good suggestions of non-aquarium (usually not rated for water resistance etc) LED’s
