T5HO: Should I get a 4 or 8 bulb for my wide tank?

8 T5s sounds pretty scary if you aren't going to do pressurized co2.

I would suggest as others have said and go with two fixtures, so you get reasonable light and good spread. I have a few of the...

Wow that's surprising. I know even Tom Barr uses those on his home aquariums and he is the king of preaching higher CO2 levels. I'll have to see if I can find others having this problem.
