Hello fellow members,

I have a Mr. Aqua 12 gallon long tank and got this 36" 78w T5 HO Aquarium Light German Reflector Hood 2x39W Lamp Fixture Coral Reef. (specs of light on bottom) lighting for free from a friend. Do you think this is too much light to grow a carpet of Hemianthus Callitrichoides (dwarf baby tears). I also plan on putting c02.

Specifications:
Voltage: 110V
Power: 78W
Dimension: 36"L x 4 3/4"W x 2 1/4"H
Dimension with Legs: 37"L x 6 3/4"W x 5 1/2"H

Package Content:
1 x 36"Aquarium Light Fixture
1 x 39W T5 12,000K Fluorescent Lamp
1 x 39W T5 Actinic Blue Lamp
2 x Flippable Brackets

thanks for the input! I decided to save the fixture for a salt water tank in the future and purchased a satellite+ that was recommended on the 12 gallon long threat :]
