Finnex ray 2 on a 55 gallon


I just have purchased a 55 gallon tank ( 48x13x21). I will be running co2 and fert. I'm looking to buy some good light that can reach glossostigma or hc. I was recommended to finnex 2!!! My question will one 48 inch long dual 7000k be enough to grow carpet??

It surely will. We have a dealer with a ray2 on a 75 with thick carpet of btears. His 75 does have a background on 3 sides though.

Thank you lowe. I have seen your picture in general lighting thread, it looks amazing and really encourage. Thats what i want my tank to be. I have a canopy but probly painting the sides to concentrate the lighting is a good idea.

Do yo uhave a glass top under the canopy? If you want just a little more "umpf" out of it take the legs off and put the light right on the glass top - that's how I run my Fugeray!
