This is exactly what I do (I have 2 of the 2x54 watt Hagen Glo fixtures though) and it is enough light to grow BBA if you want. When all 4 bulbs are on it is bright! I now have my lights hung about 10" above the top of my standard 75 gallon. You could probably get away with just one fixture.

Thanks for the help. I had an odyssey fixture that turned out to be junk. So I'm hoping the aquaticlife will be much better and last longer.
I was even thinking about getting the 54w kits from a.h. supply. But I would need to build an enclosure and I don't know how build one for a 75 gallon.

|mjk412||What if I did this.....what if I had two of these aquaticlife fixtures on my tank. I ran on for 4 hours, then the second one with all 4 bulbs running as a mid-day burst for a few hours, then later just had the last two lights running. How will this help with growth? Ill be injecting co2.|

|seandelevan||I had the same light on my 75. And yes there was very little growth but no algae at all. Had amazon swords, anubias, java fern, java moss, and Ludwigia repens.|

|FishyFishy89||You'll want lighting tubes that are atleast 7000k. I'm using 2 T8 6500k for my low tech 75 gal. So I think, as long as your tubes are atleast 7000k, you're good.|
