What are the dimensions of the tank? There is par data on the sticky on the top of this sponsers forum. Since you want minimal co2, then I would say stick to 40-50 PAR. I am thinking the rayII will be better since you have CO2. Hope I helped a little

Ok, then the fugeray will definitely give you enough light and you won't even need CO2 either IMO

That micro sword requires more light than the other 2 listed, The Ray II would probably work better for that one, the Fugeray for your requirements and the other plants. With the Ray II you are still going to have to dose and run CO2, it puts out alot of light.

There have been several people with 60P that have that light or have asked questions about it - TexasCichlid has a tank with one and there was one other - both tank journal threads, they were both using the Ray II

I am in the same boat with a 60P but with lower light demanding plants and will probably get the Fugeray - although still debating, have that one on 2 other tanks and they are both great so far.
