    Hello,i am doing some research , I think that there is a lot to learn before you make any purchase. I want a freshwater tank of 1.2 mt with a mix of plants and tropical fish.So lighting should be an important factor (right?).A lot of people favor t5 lights , and I found one which comes with 2*39 T5 lights and a capacity of 63 us gallons. Do you think its enough ?
    I know that co2 is also very important.

    what is 1.2 mt??

    A dual t5ho set up typically is considered medium to high light depending on the height of the tank.

    As for CO2, yes it is important for many plants, some really don't require anything additional, but others do. It really depends on budget to determine if you would do a pressurized, DIY or liquid CO2 set up if you needed to

    Ah ok... sounds like a standard 90g tank (48" x 18" x 22")

    As for the lights, typically a light doesn't come with a tank capacity, my guess is that it is a 36" long light, which if you have glass lids on the tank would work ok centered

    In a 90g tank some plants can be tough, I'd recommend starting with a low light set up to start off
