I have that light on a 40B but the spread is no where near sufficient. I do not have co2. What I use with it is an old dual tube T-5. I can't grow HG but I am growing Glosso.

FWIW, I use 2217s on my 40Bs and add a Aqueon HOB with a 100 micron pad for water polishing. Aqueons are very easy to clean that way and canister has a prefilter sponge to make it go longer.

Two Aqueon 20s at Kensfish comes to about $35 shipped. If you get them don't buy replacement cartridges but use floss or cut padding.
