I have one over my 135g but it's not planted. Works as a light though.

I have two of them over a planted 80 Gal, they're not pretty but they do work. they will also drive the 32 Watt T-8 bulbs, and I think you can get more light that way. I also use the phillips natural shunshine bulb from Home Depot. it's not the best, but not bad either and the price is good.

I have 2 of those placed into my custom canopy. I use 4 T8 32 Watt Phillips bulbs like bpimm. It works pretty good for me i must say.
