I have a 54 corner tank I'm setting up. It's was a little cloudy at the time of pic, but it's clear now. I have a 24" ray2 on it and have a 30" planted plus coming. Will both of those put enough light to grow a glosso carpet up front?

Also will the reds in the planted plus give a nice color mixed with the ray2? I want the monster ray, but it need more plant light before going with that one.

Setup.

54g with 10g sump. Filter sock and fluval biomax rings for filtration.
24" ray2 and 30" planted plus for light.
2" of Eco complete substrate. 20" between gravel and lights.
No co2, but dose flourish excel. (Maybe later on c02)

i'm guessing Medium. my 36" Ray2 and 36" Planted+ seem to have me in that range as well on my 92g corner

you're going to find that it is really tough to grow a full carpet with a corner. I definitely recommend putting low light plants around the "edges" of the bowfront - as due to the design (mine has black edges at the top) they won't get much light. good luck!
