my 40 breeder, which has 2x55w powercompacts, has been running fine with out co2. I was looking at the ray 2 myself and I think it'd suit your needs. One way of looking at it is if you "accidently" buy a light that is too bright you kind of have to get co2 then dont you? that being said I think that you could get away with the ray 2 and no co2, the trick is to balance it with the right plants and the proper light period, also what was said about raising it higher holds true as well.
