55g lighting


I ordered a Finnex Fugeray 48" fixture for my new 55g planted tank. What level plants will I be able to keep with that light without dosing CO2? I figure I can keep low light plants but will it be enough light for medium or high?

Thanks in advance,

According to the PAR Data sticky in the Finnex section below, the 48" Fugeray would give you ~40 micromols of par at a 20" depth, which will put you in the low - medium-low light range.
