I need some help. I have a 20 Gallon Long Frag tank and I am not sure what lighting to use. If I went with LED's what size would I need? Please any help would be greatly appreciated.

What are ya wanting to grow, how much is your budget, and how comfortable are you with diy stuff?
When I get to my laptop can toss some links to some good diy led websites with pretty good prices and kits.
If your just doing lps and softies I'm using a 2bulb t5 set up that works fine. Lots of options out there just need to know what u wanna grow.

I am looking to grow mostly Zoas, Platys, Softies but I don't want to be limited. I have seen the DIY, but I am not very handy so I am not sure about that option. Budget? Whats that? LOL

Lol well if no budget drop a couple hundred at reefkois for a dimmable 150w fixture. Would leave u room to expand in the future and with dimmable u could set it just how u like it and need it on your 20.

I'd do leds. Thats what I'm putting on my 14 biocube. Leds can almost grow anything and everything. Plus cheaper bills like dirtefish said cant beat it. Hook'd is the man for the job!!
