T5HO lighting on 55g
I am planning on planting my 55 gallon tank. How high above the tank(inches/cm) would 2 54watt 4ft long t5ho bulbs need to be to make medium lighting.

I used to have a two bulb T5HO fixture on my 90 gallon tank (about 2 inches above) which gave me what I would consider med-level lighting.
For a 55 gallon I would suggest trying 6 inches as a 55 gallon is 4 inches shorter than a 90 gallon.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
