Today my dad picked me up a light fixture for me and two 32w T8 bulb's. But im only getting 55LPG and 50LPG is the min for a planted tank. Should i get some brighter lights?

idk what LPG is?
watt-wise you have about 1.2 WPG which would allow you to get some lower light plants. ive grown anubias and a few hygrophillia species very easily in low light. such as hygrophillia polysperma and hygrophillia difformis IIRC and they needed to be cut down every other week.

LPG is lumens pre gallon. Most ppl still go by WPG but like the one inch per gallon rule the WPG rule is wrong to. Here this will explane it better then i can http://www.monsterfishkeepers.com/fo...ad.php?t=73446 yes ik it by mfk but its something they did get right lol.
