    Hi,

    I'm not much on the diy stuff, I just want to buy a light that fits my tank and be done with it. What is the best brand and model for plants that need high light? Can you grow low light plants with high light plants or do they burn out like hosta in the sun?

    I am not a plant person but if I had to guess it would depend on the size and depth of the tank. What size tank is it?

    I would think that you could get away with some low light plants closer to the front of the tank if you have the light over the top near the back. I am having some good luck with plants with a basic beamworks led light on my 55 gallon. I have some swords and crypts in one tank, and I have various types of anubia in a different 55 with the same light on it. Hope that helps
