Ocean Revive Arctic-T247

Hi all,

I'm a newbie planning possibilities. Would this light work for an 18x18x24 Exo or 20G high?

I intend to house dart frogs. I'm pretty sure it's powerful enough but I'm not sure if the spectrum is right for the application since it's primarily intended for saltwater tanks.

Thanks

Yes, the T247 has a broader spectrum of light then most LED fixtures, as you can see from their map. it has a square shaped foot print, so there will be no light or shadowing on the top sides of a 24" wide tank. I would say 4" of darkness on each side, but the light will spread to cover the entire floor. Also it's dimmable from 1 to 100% so that's good. You can grow live plants under it.
