Based on: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/li...tml#post904062 it looks like you will have 60-80 micromols of PAR, which is in the high medium range, and with that much light CO2 is almost necessary, if not necessary. (This is assuming you have the lights on each end of the tank, so they make a row across the tank.)
