hello! i have a 6 foot long 24 inch tall 18 inch wide 135. i am currently running dual t5ho with pressurized co2. dose flourish until that runs out then i have the co op version i plan on using. plants are doing ok. I want to upgrade my lighting to fluval planted 3.0 as i like leds more. would 2 36 inch fixtures be enough for it? any one have any other led recommendations for a 24 inch tall tank? plants are mostly low to medium requirements. thanks!

I’d suggest two for the tank. Other options would be finned stingray led.

You could do as suggested and run two 48 inch lights but I think two 36 inch ones would work also. That choice is up to you. I run a single 48 inch on my 72 bowfront which is a fairly deep tank as well. Plenty of light for low to medium light requirements.

My 72. The hornwort and water lettuce block some light if I dont pull it often enough. I used to run easy green and root tabs but I ran out and have not fertilized this tank in over a year. Simply been maintained off of light and fish waste all this time. I need to get more easy green though as I'm definitely seeing a slow down on plant progression.
