I like the 2x36 it fits pretty good on my tank. Yes I also have a diy co2. Heres a link to see how the tank is doing with that set up.

On my 55g planted tank, I'm using:

Custom SeaLife BriteLite 2x65w Power Compact strip light. $130 from www.petwarehouse.com

... and a Perfecto Twin Strip light retrofitted with a 4-F32T8 ballast overdriving 2x two Sylvania/OSRAM Glo-Lux bulbs.

On my 20g reef tank, I'm overdriving two 18" 15w T8 bulbs with a 2-F32T8 ballast for a total of 40 watts.

MH fixture, 500w output.

I dumped the PC idea, but will definately try it in the future. =)

Flgatorguy, you mean 200 watts, not 200 wpg!

I will soon be upgrading to overdrive my single 40-watt strip to a 6500 lumen ODNO strip!
