    Hello I was wondering if one t5ho fixture would work or is that to much(24 or 30 inch, Both 24watts)? Yea and this is a 29 gallon tank. This is a zoo med fixture. If this will make me do co2 then no. Also, would a single t5ho be too much too? If not then I will just add another t8 fixture cause that shouldn't be to much

    A single T5HO at the height of a 29g tank should be medium to low medium light. Adding more light would likely require a fertilizer regime and CO2 supplementation.

    I know exactly the zoomed fixture you are referring to as I have it. Yes, it will require ferts.
