View Full Version : Is this too much light?

So, I bought a 8 x 54w T-5 light for my 120g high. It is 24" high and I mounted the light 5 inches above the top of the tank. It is 26" from the light to the top of the gravel. I am running CO2 and will be fertilizing starting next week. Currently have various swords, lutea, hornwort, camboba and dwarf sag. Would like to get some higher light plants like limnophilia hipporoides. I tried it before but didn't have enough light to sustain it. Just wondering what you guys think.

You should be able grow just about anything you want with that lighting.
