That is with a single fixture on a 40 gallon breeder?!
I was considering doing low/medium light off a single fluval 3.0, and then get a second fixture later when I build out my co2 setup.

Yes, it's a single fixture. I recommend getting a rise-dim timer with it. It allows me to have enough light for viewing but only a couple of hours of full intensity to keep algae down. The light also seems to grow plants well.
This is what the tank looked like freshly planted mid-August
And this is early October, 2.5 months later.
New photo today showing about 5 weeks more growth
Root tabs and a bit of liquid ferts.
I need to take some new pictures as the java moss has taken over a lot of the spiderwood.
