yeah noobinator, i found out that the 20 watts help, especially at the front corner of the tank, i found out that its just the balance setup if you have a DIY co2, all the plants are pearling evryday including the high light plants like L. Aromatica, if i try to turn off the Flourecent you'll see the different.

Youho thank you very much for the comment
Jen thanks

the reason i ask is because my 30XH was 65W over it now, however i do have my old strip still, but since my tank is only 1ft from front to back, i didn't know if it would be worth it.
