So I have a 55 gallon planted tank with a 48 inch 2x54 watt T5 light and I want to get a little more lighting for higher light foreground plants. I want something like a glo t5 either 2x54 or 2x24 watt. I think it would grow a lot of algae though. I have 2 watts per gallon and I want at least 3 watts and the light needs to be drilled into my canopy to.

I know E-bay has some single bulb T5HO fixtures and I think Home Depot does also.
Hope that canopy is well ventilated.
The ones I saw on E-bay have no reflectors so it's DIY or none.
That tank is rather tall for lighting a carpet in. You might consider Glosso as it would
not require as much light.
