I agree. I have the fixture on my 75, it is very bright. If you don't have CO2, stick with less light.


Your post is a bit incoherent though, what are you asking about the bulbs?
well i ment is there a better fixture or should i get dual t5s instead?:proud:

get that fixture, I have the same one on a 75g and am seeing very good growth. Its been said before, and I wasn't a real believer until I tried, but lots of CO2 is really going to make the difference.

The bulbs you can get there are great. Right now I run 2 of the plant growth bulbs with one 6700k bulb. Looks great and lots, lots of pearling.
