Thanks for the input, Laura. That's the fixture I was leaning towards. You don't think the 30" bulbs of the Aqualight would make that much of a difference? Also, what combination of bulbs would you...

Would the 2x24" T5 HO Catalina fixture be considered "high light" (read: would I need CO2?) for a 29-gallon tank?
