Default Some help w/a PC fixture

Id like to get some feedback on what some of the more experienced aquarist think of the jebo 2x96 PC fixture for a planted 46 gallon bowfront. The price seems very good and since im injecting pressurized Co2 I figure the extra bit of ligth won't hurt.. does anyone have any other suggestions for less than $100...
I found this one..

Im thinking of contacting the seller and asking him if he can replace the attinic w/another daylight..I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions since id like to spend my $$$ as wisely as possible and hopefully do it rigth the first time.
thanks again guys

You can get that particular fixture for alittle cheaper at here

But I you're really better off getting a 2x55 watt from AHsupply. I'm sure you'll get lots of recommendations for using AH. They are literally the best, no hype added to it.

As for the Jebo fixture it's decent, but the bulbs are close together and results in less light than you think entering the tank. Overall I think it'll do the trick, but for maybe $15 bucks initially, you'll get more bang out of an AH kit...better light, longer lasting bulbs (since they aren't force to heat up), and long lasting performance.

Thanks for the reply, After reading more on the subject, now im a bit more confused. I've read very good things about the t5's so im kinda leaning that way.. What do you guys think of putting 2 of the jebo twim HO t5s fixtures over my 49 bowfront, Seems like it could be a better option if they will fit. I'll get better controll, Im kinda on a very restricted budget and DIY is not an option for now( my wife hates this type of projects in the apartment so im better off the fully assembled route). the good news is the pressurized Co2 is already installed and functioning... So lets hear it??? Considering my budget at the moment is less than $100 or $150 at the most and that DIY isn't an option. What would you guy put over your 36" tank, a 2x96w cf or two 2x39w t5s???? will the 2 t5 fixtures even fit on this set up?

Thanks again...
