 Which  flood  lights  do  you  plan  to  use?  There  are  some  old  models  which  are  just  Edit,  and  will  breakdown  pretty  soon,  even  if  you  get  any  warranty.
 
 If  you  can,  just  use  6  LED  tube  lights(6x20W)  and  you  should  be  fine  to  begin  growing  most  of  the  plants,  provided  you  have  adequate  CO2

 Thank  you  sir  for  your  reply,
 My  initial  plans  were  to  install   6  LED  tube  lights  of  18  to  20  watts,  but  my  concern  is  penetration  of  light  at  the  bottom  of  the  tank  will  be  very  less.
 
 I  already  have  3  of  V-TAC  30  Watts  Each,  2400  Lumens,  120  Beam  angle.  Initially  i  was  planning  to  50  watts  full  spectrum  led  flood  lights  in  between  the  existing   LED  Flood  lights
 
 https://www.amazon.in/HITSAN-INCORPORATION-Spectrum-AC220-240V-Waterproof/dp/B07MKKNRJM/ref=sr_1_12?keywords=50+watts+full+spectrum+led+flood+lights&qid=1561531972&s=gateway&sr=8-12
 
 since  the  cost  is  too  high,  i  am  planning  to  install  2     V-TAC  30  Watts  Each,  2400  Lumens,  120  Beam  angle.  so  all  together  there  will  be  5  led  flood  lights  of  30  watts  each.

 I  am  using  20W  philips  LED  bulbs  for  my  5.5ft  tank.  My  tank  is  also  2ft  tall,  and  light  penetration  becomes  an  issue,  so  I  remove  the  diffuser  and  use  aluminum  reflectors  on  all  bulbs.  Even  my  dwarf  saggs  are  growing  well  with  this  setup.  I  use  6x20W  LED  bulbs  and  2x  20W  LED  Baton  lights
