Am in a similar situation as Amanda's Tank. Have four T8's on top of my 24"tall 80 gallon tank. It should be low light at ~40umol, I guess. I want to go up to medium at ~55umol since adding excel and ferts. Will be looking to get a double T5HO fixture with poor reflector and rest it right on top. No real question here. Thank to Hoppy, all my answers are out there.

Ver. 1.0 80 gallon dirt goldfish tank (defunct)

Ver. 2.0 bare bottom same tank another approach (defunct)

Ver. 3.0 Pool filter sand same tank now

Farming Algae

Goldfish are among the worst fish for beginners.
