I'd have to stand on the dresser to pee in the tank so ill just skip that step but yeah I know wattage is important. I decided on this fixture after running all my options and coming up with nothing practical. T8 best I could do was 15w and couldn't find PAR ratings. T5 couldn't find a single tube fixture and don't wanna do a dual because with that much light I will NEED CO2 and I don't want to use it. Only other option was CFL and I don't want to use screw in bulbs. From what I hear that's what most people do in these smaller tanks but I can't bring myself to using them. Seems TOO low-tech lol. But idk which plants I'm using yet. Royals, ludwigia chain sword are my only definite choices
