i am almost ready to set up my first planted tank, and have a quick question about lighting i currently have a dual 48" t5ho system. i have tek2 reflectors but dont know if i will use them or not. the bulbs are 1 giesemann powerchrome aqua blue+ and a ge starcoat 6500k bulb.

the tank is a 60 gallon "53 actual" dimensions 48*15*17 and the lights will sit 6" off the top of the water. i was thinking about adding some led's to give the tank a bit of glimmer but was wondering how many leds i should get or just stay with the t5ho.

what are everyones opinion, add supplemental led lighting or no. and should i go with the reflectors or not.
