I am setting up my first aquarium, a 50 gallon planted. I am still in all the planning stages but have been browsing this and other forums for advice.

I bought a 2x96w PC light set from I am a little worried though that at 3.8 wpg I may have more light than I want. I am installing a pressurized CO2 system as well.

Depending on the amount of growth I get, it is possible to do a sequential operation of the lights. In other words, have one light on for 10-12 hours, then use the second light for a shorter period of time, say 5-6 hours. I realize this would take slightly different wiring, but it could be fairly easily accomplished.
