New 75 Gallon lighting

Starting up my first real planted tank. Been in reefkeeping for over 15 years but not familiar with plant light needs. I will be running c02 as well if that changes lighting recommendations.

Tank I purchased came with a Fluval Plant Spectrum 3.0 Bluetooth LED light. Thinking of supplementing it with a 2 bulb t5 fixture as well.

What recommendations on bulbs to compliment the LEDs do you guys have?

Thanks!

99% of people on here either do all led or all T5. LED supplementation is basically a reef thing. Don't go down that rabbit hole and just pick one type of lighting for what type of tank you want.

For a strip light, the Fluval 3.0 is a very good option. A pair of them on a 75 will do well with co2 injection.
