I am not finding any 2 bulb Tek fixtures. If there was one, it would be very high light. A 4 bulb would be way to much light. I think that the Finnix Ray II would be mediumish light, and probably grow whatever you want, with co2.

As long as those Red Sea CO2 setups have been around, there ought to be lots of reviews on them. There are practically no reviews on the internet. That is telling in itself in my opinion.
I would vote for a Ray II after seeing one in operation for several weeks. My brother runs on on a saltwater tank and it is more than adequate for that use. I am awfully impressed with the build quality for the price.
thanks i will go with 4 bulb Tek fixture. i found a used one at manhattan aquarium.
