What type of light would be best for a 125g planted tank? What should I look for in the light?
Im looking for a medium/high light
Im getting both pressurized CO2 and dry ferts.

Im not looking at doing a DIY. But would like something I could hang from the celing and have hoover a little ways over the top of the tank.

The other way I could do is buy the cannopy [$170 something] with 2 bulbs. I don't remember the watts of the lights but it was about 2-3w/g.

But for a 125g I should have a minimum of 4 bulbs right not the 2 the cannopy would have?
Otherwise I can do 2 4bulb T5's that are 30" so it would be 6" short on both sections.
