Thanks for the replies! Yeah Im going to use DIY CO2 for it. I know..5W/gallon sounds like a high maintenance tank.. Now I'm considering the 36" 96W fixture. I hope that it fits (w/ the mounting legs) with my tank (36L x 10W x 16D). My concern now is that, would I be able to grow foreground plants like glosso and hairgrass or any other bright light plants?

Also, Does anyone know how strong the wattage is per gallon for it to be considered very bright? is 3.5W/gallon considered bright?

Thanks again,
Rafael
