Is this to much light?

I am buying a ada p90 tanks. I found a MH light - 250 w for 279 (with no bulb - i was going to buy the ADA bulb) it this to much light for my tank?

Is there a better deal then this, etc?
(I am using pressured co2 by the way.)

Yes and no. You should use a lower watt fixture IMO but with different mounting heights you can fine tune it's intensity to low/high light.... why waste electricity

well I actually get a better deal with it. the same unit (150 wat) is only 20 dollars cheaper - so basically I'm spending 20 more bucks and getting 100 more wt.
isn't that a pretty good deal?
