    Now 100W LED per side, or 200W total. 2x50w grow and 2x50w red. If this will not work, I think I will end with LED`s.

    Also, if this will not work and I will still get not enough light, should I try 3000k leds instead of red/grow? Because it`s impossible to move light closer, but they give me more lumens and I hope more deep light penetration power.

    No, you will have more than enough light.

    Screen color now. Stupid compact cam still refuse to focus... And I should get another 2 grow leds instead of red ones. The part of the scrubber under them (lower) is growing much slower and does not have microbubbles.

    Anyway, I`ve just started scrubber in my fw tank too.

    Also, one of my red LEDs suddenly died, so I was forced to add original 6500k instead, before 50w grow will arrive. I should probably warn another users don`t buy from riverstone88 seller on eBay.

    In addition to a bad seller, that type of led is also just a colored lens on a clear led. Very dim. What you want are color leds instead; they look white or slightly yellow when not turned on, and are much brighter and with solid color when on.

    Thank you for advice. Now I`m not sure if my grow LEDs are good enough too. I`ve never seen grow leds any different from this:

    I have these both in fw and sw sold as full spectrum grow leds (the ones in fw were preinstalled in flood lights).
    And I believe you`re talking about something like this:

    Yes the bottom picture, and the two ebay ones, are good. The top picture with orange puts out hardly any light at all because the light can't get through the orange coating. It's only good for indicator lights or lights on a sign.
