Hey all..

Ive got a question.. Currently I have a 90Gal Bow.

This tank currently has a CF 55x2 lamp that I have been using. It is populated by lots of vals.. I MEAN lots. and a few other easy grow plants. They seem to flourish in the lighting that I have however I must say its come time to rip out thoes vals for some really nice plants.

Anywhoo.

So one of the CF 55x2 lamp's burnt out on me today and im wondering if i should sell off the light as is and go for something bigger or simply add another strip light (i actually have a 48' stip here but that would be only 40w)

I have seen some 2x65 CF sets around on the internet as well.. I was thinking that it i may be able to reach 2+wpg just by adding that. It would be 240w on a 90 gal tank. This sounds good to me 2.6 WPG???


Also what bulbs should I buy to replace the 55w Cf's? People seem to use the GE ones?


Thanks

Is your 90 a 4' long tank? My bow front is an AGA 80 gal that i'm using the 4' Tek T5 light. It fits perfectly inside the hood.
