Another lighting question...
On the new 72g bow front I need a light for my plants (when I get that far) Wondering about using the same one I have on my planted 55g -http://www.bigalspets.com/fish/light...x-54-w-48.html
It is 48" and 108 watts. (Should be about 1.5 - 1.6 WPG the 55 is probably more like 2 WPG)

I am currently using two 6700K (or 6500K can't remember for sure) bulbs of T5HO lighting on my 90 gallon which is 24 inches tall. I can grow easy to care for, low to mid light requiring plants, without having to worry about algae.
I would think a two bulb T5HO fixture should work for you as well, provided you to not want high demanding plantsIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
