high light output for a deep tank (one big rub)
So i need high output to reach 30-36 inches deep, THAT I CAN PLUG INTO A WALL. Im not finding many options to do a heavily planted tank without having to wire something into a circuit or junction box. Does anyone have a super green tank (plants not water lol!) thats 75 plus gallons by using a light that they just plugged into the wall, standard US outlet? Or am i losing it, and everyone does? Help me out, many thanks!
p.s. i posted in plants first, should i also post in technical, or setup? im terrible at deciding where would be best.fish are aliens

Either a metal halide or hid fixture will work and use std house current.

You could also look into a T5HO fixture as well.
A four bulb fixture might do the trick for a 36 inch tall tank. On a 90 gallon 24 inch tall tank, a 4 bulb T5HO fixture will give you very high so it might be around mid - light levels at 36 inches deepIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
