I can't see the pics on the other forum, so I can't comment on your tank. I have found that if you don't have glass tops on, that you have problems getting the lights to come on when you flip the switch. I still need to get one more glass top for my spawning tanks stand to correct this problem. Check out my thread, I don't think you will need that much light. On my 55 I just run 1 32watt T-8 bulb and the algea is not a problem. I don't use Co2 in my tank.
