I have the 2 x 65 coralife strip on my 55g. I also have 2 cheap-o 24" T8 15w fixtures on the front of it. Works well, I have the 15w's come on first for an hr for a dusk effect so the fish can adapt their eyes to the light, then the 2 x 65 comes on, then it goes on and runs the 15w's for a dawn effect for an hr then I have my moonlight come on for a few hrs. Even the most high light plants grow in this setup. Of Course I have pressurized co2 on the setup as well.
