I would guess so. You MAY be able to dose some ferts and get by without CO2, but I would doubt it.

Yeah I may hold off on that for now. But I don't feel the stock round light is ideal for plants either. The hunt continues

"Ideal", no. Depends on the plants, though. Low light plants like Anubias, Java Ferns, etc. do just fine with the stock light.

I cut a small rectangle off the lid facing the back and run my heater wire & airstone hose through. Lid stays flat.

Here is an update to my first Spec and a shot of the second one I setup at work today. Running both stock lights on the second one. Not sure how much better it will be....
