Lighting for a 55 gallon high tech?


I have a 55 gallon tank that I'm setting up with c02 for my first foray into high tech (had 3 previous low tech plants).

I just need to figure out lighting, as it seems high light is a lot higher of a PAR rating than I thought.

For high light c02, I believe I would need to double up on light?

I know that doubling up on Beamsworks FSpec and the Fluval 3.0 would be enough life.

What about doubling up on Current USA led+ and Finnex Planted + ?

Do you guys have a favorite light based on color rendition?
