I have a 55g, 48x21x12.
Currently dosing EI method and using Metricide 14.
I want to be certain I have "enough" light but still not too much for a 10 hour photo period.

TIA for replies
If you like the look of the bulbs, I would keep them. Without pressurized CO2, you don't want to push your lighting to the maximum.
