Will, that's great. I am happy when I hear success stories. However it's said and repeated over n over again that the difference between a great tank and a thriving one is the details. Maybe you can put up a picture to compare and judge lol respectfully.

Alley, I have a Aqualife 2x 48" T5HO with ATO bulbs one is a 8k (I think) the other is their freshwater plant bulb. It looks great and has the power to reach well down into the bottom for great growth. All my plants do well and grow so fast we are trimming them every weeks or two. But any fixture like that will work. ATO and Giesemann make the best T5HO bulbs. If your fixture doesn't include bulbs or these brands it's worth getting these. Mix the color for more spectrum. like this:
