I've been looking at Odyssea lighting from Aquatraders.com and the prices are very attractive. I am setting up(very slowly) a 60 gallon dirt and STS tank that is 36"x18"x21". I want to go low tech and low to medium light plants. Should I get the 78 watt(2x39w T5HO) or the 156 watt(4x39w T5HO)? I dont want to use CO2. Because it is a deep tank I am not sure if two bulbs will give enough light to the bottom of the tank. Help!

I have a 4 lamp T5HO fixture (JBJ brand) on my 90 gallon cichlid tank and it grows algae like nothing else. I would suggest just going with the two lamp fixture, especially since you don't want to do CO2.

i have 3 of there lights. 1 55" 2 lamp t5ho works great. 1 36" 4 lamp saltwater light with 4 leds works even better. 1 reef led 18" love the color and corals are doing great. For a cheap light they work great. The bulbs arent the greatest but i have been using my for about 8months. expect the led using it for 3 months no complanits at all
