Thanks for the fast reply! I bought some plants from you about 2 years ago. I was running low tech then and killed all the plants slowly

Both lights are on for 9 hours a day. Should I try to reduce my photoperiod? Or just run one fixture with the other one coming on for a couple of hours for a midday burst?

I read a post where they measured the Coralife T5HO with a PAR meter and the results were horrible. I figured I might actually be running a little on the low side of light. I have my CO2 cranked as high as it can go without the fish showing signs of stress. It is paintball CO2... Not very economical for a 55 gallon though.
